    steve, it would be neat to see what products you were involved in developing.

    as you know, joey was very impressed the first time she saw me use my 1210 oil less threader

    you need to come up with something special as she's seen it all and it's getting expensive to impress her anymore.

    keep up the good work all of us in the field appreciate what you've done
