Just like Henry Ford, it’s a production line.

Now why didn’t I think of that?

Nice job Dan!

Don’t give them to collegues, or you’ll end up with someone’s cards for sure.

Those are really neat, Dan. We all need some small products to sell.

So, you work for P & W? Years ago, I got my pilot’s ticket by twisting wrenches on P & W 600’s stuck on the front of Ag-Cats. Exciting times.

Nice work Dan. It looks like you have one more item to add to your eBay sales.

What did you do to make the “hinge” for the lid?
