since I bought my lathe Russ and I have been talking about machinist stuff for a bit now, well he happened to be coming to town for work and I told him if he ever came this way to give me a ring, well he did just that. I had him meet me at my machine shop so I could give him the grand tour of our plasma spray, grind, and machine shop. then we went to my pad and hung out and talked shop and he met my woman and our son. what a great dude! was great to finally meet him. not what I expected, or I did'nt really know what to expect. actually I did not have any expectations I should say. So we all went to dinner and talked for quite some time about life and ofcourse wheelin and rigs. I had a great time and all I can say is Russ is welcome in my home anytime. I hope I get to wheel with him sometime, ofcourse after I finish my junk. let me tell ya he is a very intellegent guy. allways good to talk to someone like Russ, you can learn a thing or two from a person like that. Russ, thanks again man! hope ya dont mind this.
