  • I am going to be on the Food network...

    It is for a show called "Ham on the Street". They hired me to fabricate a turkey rotisserie that incorporates a bicycle to rotate the "spit". They came to my home shop and filmed me fabricating it and also I was at the final filming when it was done. We went on location where the Pilgrams are in Plymouth Plantation Mass. to cook it. It actually worked and almost cooked the turkey while fiming out takes and such. I play a large role in this show. It will air in November and it is on Wed. nites on the Food Network. I will post pics of the set up as soon as I can. The producers now have other projects for me to fabricate as well. I work full time during the day as an operations systems specialist for a large CC company. They have hinted for me to work full time but I will not make a move until I see a nice contract. I will just make the projects on my hobby time and go from there.
