Default there's a first for everything!

Can honestly say I would've never thought I'd have the head end of an all stainless steel grain leg in my shop. These jobs are usually saved for onsite jobs and stringing out hundreds of feet of lead! A customer of mine bought this off of eBay and needs me to make a couple patches and modify the head pulley mounts. Besides it's an excellent job to play with my new iron worker on!!

Having a shop with a light on out front will bring more of what you seek. Probably more than you can handle in the coming years.
