41 Ole single lad living on Lake Wisconsin trying to put all my late father and grandfather's tools to work.

Did woodworking shop way back in 88' In High School

For 2 years I worked for Eagle Window and Door in the 1/2 circles division glueing wood laminates and jiging into cast iron frames. Learned how to use Industrial table saws,planners,molders, and shapers.

Currently getting back into woods hobby with tons of distress trying to put parts and pieces into working tools again.

It was ok like many jobs there were the good and bad points of the job. I worked there when they were closer to downtown. I worked in half circles bending and mitering alum-clad frames, we built the whole window and thinking back it was a long process the straights were ran through a prefab router to cut the groove for alum frames. The 1/2circle were formed by gluing 16 laminates and placing them in cast irog 1/2 jigs and compressing them with cast iron clamps with impact wrench. the glued frames would then be dipped for 3 hours in sealer. Then wood is baked in kiln. The metals had to be sanded and the heat painted before metal can be added to wood. Then the assembly would take place not to mention the temp glass and the framed stops.
We had been going thru a Union push during my work and the working conditions often were not that great i coughed up metal powder alot and the fumes from the dip room made me sick. And we worked in non air conditioned rooms so in the summer it was HOT!.

Since they moved to the new home down by the river I hear working conditions are safer and it’s air conditioned.
