Asking what the most used tool in your shop well help determine what you specialize in. 


If the answer is a propane torch and penetrating fluid, you work on prehistoric machinery.

If the answer is a hammer, then you work on antique machinery.

If the answer is a multimeter, then you work on modern equipment.

If the answer is plastic epoxy, then you work on 2013 models.

I thought for sure I was going to hear that the fridge quit. I have no idea where you hunyucks' priorities are at these days.

I used to repair exhaust manifolds by putting them into a charcoal and let them get real red. Then welded them up. But that was back in the old days ( 50 years ago). Uncle taught me that. We even fixed cracked heads this way.
