I want to thank this community for the great comments about my first real post ("…founders fun"). Even though I have been involved with computers and all other sorts of technical and industrial jobs since the 70’s, my interaction with special interest and/or social groups online has been limited. Please excuse my occasional stumble on social norms.
In a nutshell, I have been involved with as a career, all aspects of the sheet metal trades. From Shipboard to Aircraft, all disciplines, from design, industrial engineering, pattern making (before and after computers), manufacture and install. Now I prototype aircraft parts that cannot be made by vendors, (very cool job). I have always kept the technical, and creative part of myself as a hobby, occasionally tearing down an ipad or iphone and repairing those types of things on the side.
As a licensed pilot I can tell you that I always knew I could fly, I just needed the wings.
As an aspiring artist I can tell you that I always knew I could create beautiful things, I just needed the proper palette, brush and canvas…
Glowforge Pro has done that for me!!!
However, this post is in honor of Apollo, not just Apollo 11 and the moon landing, but to all Mercury and Gemini before, and Skylab, The Shuttle program and the continuing ISS mission.
