Default Ron Helsley

Hello my name is Ron i live in Middletown Indiana, been here all my life except while in Military for 27 years. i started at a local speed shop when i was 9 yrs., old sweeping the floor, the rest is history that car dust got in my blood and I've been working on cars for over 50 yrs. Building Hotrods is what my passion is although if i was younger id probably do a little drag racing. I do metal work now but I'm not at the level as others so i have a English wheel, bead roller, break, shrinker/stretchers, lathe, stomp sheer, welders and cutters along with the hand tools. Going to build a power hammer in the near future. I wanted to join to get more knowledge from all that do this kind of work either as a hobbyist or professional.
