My second was kinda fussy - 3 replies
Lumber Jock “fussy” that is. Met Steve and his grandson today in Berea, KY. Real nice guy, but should use the name FUZZY with all that white hair, beard and mustache! I thought it was a polar bear driving that truck. ;-) He gave me some welding rods to try out on CI and mild steel.
