Bonneville speedweek starts this Saturday! I will be there Sunday.

CANCELLED! DO TO RAIN!  However they are going to lump it in with world finals September 30 - October 3. At least it will be a little cooler.

Latest stainless hood. Ships to Scarsdale, New York tomorrow.
60” x 23.5” x 25” deep. All stainless steel. Love hate with stainless. While fabricating it you must take every precaution not to scratch it. It warps very easily so when welding heat input is critical. Also none of my stuff is painted so you can’t hide anything.

Questions or information message me.
Thanks for looking.

Hiking with my stepson and wife up big cotton wood canyon. Epic views at the top of Brighton and looking into Alta and little cotton wood canyon.

Animation of Hydraulic Fracturing (fracking)

Please watch this video with an open mind.
90% of the media reports I have seen on this subject are total bullshit. I work with and around all this technology daily. I have no agenda because ultimately I am a welder and my skills can be used anywhere. I do have tons of respect for roughnecks and drillers because it truly is a thankless job. I do not want to get political at all I just want people to see the truth.

You can see by my posts I am a tree hugger and most of the people I work with (they would never admit it) are too. We live in the country because we love nature and wildlife. Hunting and fishing are part of that love. Another thing at least where I live, a good number of the “oilfield trash” people I work with, own farms and ranches and work in the oilfield to keep their farms and ranches.

So next time a 20 something college punk tries to tell you the “truth about fracking” go tell him to fuck off and sing coom by ya in a circle with his over privileged friends. Maybe they can do it in a city park and pick up their dogs shit in a baggy. I will be in the mountains with my dogs off leash and enjoying the mountain air.

Rant over.

Thanks to the 603 people who have similar interests.  Will be posting more work pics and weld tests soon. Let me know if you have any specific requests, I will see what I can do.
