Location: Trenton, Michigan

I'm 64 and retired late 2008 from Chrysler after 20 years. The timing wasn't my choice, but the best decision to make at the time.

I live in southeast Michigan between Detroit and Toledo.

My tools aren't spectacular; Craftsman 315 TS, Rigid 13" Planer, Dremel 1680 Scroll Saw, Dewalt 788 scroll saw, Rikon Band Saw, 6" Craftsman Jointer and Delta Compond Miter. I also have a smaller CNC mill.
