Default Hello from Colorado

Hello, my name is Dave Kabela, and I'm in Platteville, CO. Most of my life was in factories, usually in management. I started a metal art business on the side about 10 years ago, got laid off from the last factory of nearly 18 years, about 2 years ago. I have been doing the metal full time since. Still also doing some manuafacturing consulting and fab work related to that industry. My interest here is to learn better ways of shaping metal and finding faster methods to getting to the desired results. My first thing is trying to figure out what planishing hammer to buy (or what to stay away from). Thanks all, and I'm excited to start digging in!
Dave.

Default few random pieces

The conferrence table is all metal and lighted, 7' x 12'. The cleaning sign was over 5' wide. The soldier guy was pretty fun also. Thanks for looking!
