Rotty,
I shine them up with a wire wheel cup brush and then heat them with a torch.

I'm so glad you have sufficient work in this slumpy economy.. And as usual nice work..

I'm inspired that you are inspired to work the way you do..

Allessence,
If I had a wife and kids at home it would be real tough. But it's just me an the dog and we don't require much.
I take in welding and repair work to fill the gaps.
As far as inspiration, I never was one for being hungry and I am fortunate to truly love what I do.
I just hope the economy doesn't get any worse.

John

P.s. I showed the client the test piece and I got the commission

Good thing you are 1800 miles away, for if you and Sherry were to ever meet I would be even more broke. Beautiful work.
