learning to work with composites

My background is primarily in metal fabrication, but I’ve started working with composites recently and am really enjoying this. There’s no magic to it, but a bit of a learning curve.

better than a bake sale

Trying to help raise some money for the BlueRibbon Coalition. They’re fighting to keep our trails open, and I’m not trying to lecture anybody, but they need our help. This product giveaway is sponsored by Ron Davis Racing Products and is being hosted by Pirate4×4.com. I hope to be able to get more companies involved, and would like to encourage people to take a look around their homes and garages – what about you? have anything you would be willing to donate or sell to help raise some money for the BRC?
