Hi Uncle Johnny,
Welcome to the site. I see you're from Illinois, don't forget to sign up for MetalMeet04 ( it's held in Robinson,IL) when we put up the sign up sheet. Glad you like the site, it will get better and better, and it's free to all that want to join.
There are no dues, no fees, and no stories here. Make sure you tell anybody you know that is interested in sheet metal shaping about the site. Thanks,

I'm hosting a regional MetalMeet over here in Robinson on January 24th. Come on over! Take I-70 to Rt. 33 at Effingham. Robinson is about 50 mile east of Effingham, so you're not much more than a couple hours away.

Bring 'em on! Get them to join our little group here too.
We should have a really good turn out. Scott may even show up from Ferndale, WA. We may have to get him the long distance award!

No sign-up sheet, just show up! You can bring along your favorite hammers and as many beater bags as you have available. I have plenty of stands for the bags around here. Feel free to call anytime.

What Randy, no sign up sheet? No "donation" required???? Just guys getting together to do some metal shaping?? Unique!

Now, Wray, I know you just said above "no stories".
But I want to know what the story is behind the bracket that you posted a picture of today :lol: .
12-07-2003, 07:26 PM
Do you mean this one?
Wray just designed a Helve Hammer for jewelers...and this is the arm.
12-07-2003, 07:32 PM
That's the one!

I met Rob at MetalMeet03 and he's as good as folks can be I think he was just kiddng with his post and it reads like he is serious. Rob is a kidder,he was cracking up at least once every ten minutes from hearing my Massachusetts accent. :D
Of course I had a hard time understanding him because of his Tennesse accent. :wink:
I'll probably delete these offending /misunderstood messages later so they don't get out of hand and they have no sheetmetal shaping content. Very soon we will have a bunch of moderators that will exercise their judgement on whether any content that gets posted is offensive and should be deleted.
This is just a small speed bump lets just get over it and get back to sheetmetal shaping.
Thanks for everyone's cooperation.
