Default Re: Tools for Creativity

That was good. The best thing that could have happen to me was living with my Cherokee grandfather (1876-1959) from 6-15 years old. He was a blacksmith and could make anything from scratch. I wish that I would have paid more attention.
But because of him I was able to go thru the Boilermaker apprentiship program and was taught Hight pressure tube welding for Power plants. Started making good money as a young man, then went on to other things. With my love of aviation, now that I am retired, I weld homebuilt 4130 tube aircraft fuselages for myself and other people and restore old airplanes to sell. I don't have an artistic bone in my body unless I'am working with steel or aluminum. Lots of fun. Pops
