    This was where I learned many skills,number one being that self dependence was a necessity and possible.My favorite was brazing and welding.

    Our culture is too busy to do their own maintenance.I don't remember there being any Jiffy Lube oil change outfits being around when I was a kid.
    im like you when my dad was doing something i was right there learning how to do it . i still do that today when i see something new ,i ask questions .

      I've got 3 kid's that can braze,MIG and do a proper brake job on a car,they don't use the welding skills much but each one has done brakes on a car and been glad with the money they put in their pockets.Any tool that I own is their's to use,just put it back where you found it.
