    A visit with Ken Fitzgerald

    I had the extreme pleasure of dropping in on Ken this past week while on the way to do a little vacationing in northern Idaho. What a great guy! Both he and his lovely bride gave Jan and I a warm welcome. I did not have a lot of time to spend but we managed to swap some great stories, a few tips, and a quick tour of the shop. I wish I had all his space! He showed me several of his projects and I can tell you first hand that this guy has talent!

    Thanks for the great visit Ken - drop by in Nampa some time.

    Looks like a fun time.
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you dont know what tool to buy next, then you probably dont need it yet.

    Hey Rennie, did you wear that tie just for the visit? Come to think of it, that is a very practical tie for a vacation.

    I'm glad you guys had fun!

    Enjoy,

    Jim

    Rennie...It was certainly our pleasure too. Sharon felt bad she had a scheduled dentist appointment as she really enjoyed Jan's company. The next time we are in the Nampa area, we'll contact you. Please if you and your lovely bride are in the Lewiston area again please stop by!

    Alright! Photographic proof of the visit Ken alluded to last week.

    Given a chance, I'd really enjoy meeting either of you two guys.

    I think there was something wrong with my lens adjustment. I think it's fixed now!

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    Jonathan......that's the only photo I remember being taken. I'll post some photos of my shop in the near future if you'd like.

    Currently my wife's Nikon is at the Nikon factory being repaired.

    Since Rennie was here, I have made a change and will being making another change to my shop today, in fact.

    The guys I worked with gave me a very generous gift. Last night I hung a Jet Air Filtration System. Today I will hang it's twin.

    My only complaint will be a loss of head room in those two areas. I won't miss the fine particle dust.
