Thanks, my friend !! Wow .... Thats a tough one, my profile touches on some of it. We were primary a specialized rigging company, that pretty much did it all, from design to completion
In the shop we built and modified equipment for the coal, and finishing industry. We changed focus thru the years starting with Electrical, adding excavation and site preperation, steel erection, mechanical, welding, refractory, machinery moving, and consulting.
My wife sums it up the best........ I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I still plan to help out two clients part time, one is a wind turbine manufacturer, and the other a local steel fabrication and coating shop. The rest of my time I hope to spend refurbishing these old coal stoves.
Ended up helping my son in law this weekend installing a laminate floor in his dining and living room. I did manage to get a few more parts done this evening.
Should be able to finish them up tomorrow and start painting, before they rust back up with this high humidity.
