    I was curious what kind of jobs some of you members have.

    We have a family sign business started in '62. I do the design, estimating, and sales of the large electrical signs. Also operate our CNC router.

    What do you do?

    I am currently working on a project to clean up the biggest environmental hazard in the USA. I design mechanical equipment within a new facility we are building to turn liquid radioactive waste into glass logs (inside a SST container).

    hey Kenny, have any pics of what those stainless containers look like? Im curious because we had a project at school in my architecture studio where we had to design a plutonium storage facility and they told us the junk would be in that form... so I designed a container for them. Just wondering what the real thing looks like, lol! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
