Insert Witty Title Here

Post by Fronkies »

Good afternoon,
My name is [hidden] and I am happy to be here. I have a varied background but have always enjoyed working with my hands and making things out of metal so I thought I would make my hobby a career. I was a Master Tech in my early 20's before going overseas with the Army. I have always maintained that earliest passion in the form of project cars (25 and counting) and have settled into the off-road scene. I enjoy helping and learning so I hope this forum is a good outlet for both of those things. I am very open to ideas and suggestions from more experienced peeps and look forward to spending time with this community.

Hey Fronkies, welcome to the site. Sounds like you have a lot of experience and lot of cool builds, would love to see some pics. What brand of table and cutter are you working with?

Thank you. I am enjoying it so far. Lots of useful information. I am using a Langmuir XR with the Razorweld plasma cutter. I hope to upgrade to a laser someday. For now, this'll let me do the things I want to like developing and building parts for lifted and lowered vehicles as well as a few unique parts for Jeeps. AS LONG AS I keep making pretty stuff for the wife as she was the driving force behind me getting the table. Before that it was only a dream.

Always good to have the boss behind you to help things go well. Many wall hanger and monograms shown here to help with pretty stuff. Or you can create your own with Inkscape for a more personnel touch. There is even a Jeep fire pit shown too. :HaHa :HaHa Keep the ear out for things you can do to make a little side money, great for new tool budget or night out with the Boss. :Like

I am discovering that this place is a great resource for stuff like this. Since I am retired this is my new full-time gig. It has to at least pay for Jeep parts. :HaHa
