General information

I work in Copper, stainless steel, Mild Steel, bronze, Brass and other alloys. I also incorporate other materials as needed for various projects: wood, stained glass and found objects. I use a TIG welder for 95% of the metal work I do. I also have a plasma cutter, stick welder, drill press and other metal working tools and equipment. I also use other metal working contractors and facilities to help with projects or parts of projects that I do not have the equipment or ability to accommodate.
