Thanks for the replies. At 61 he does pretty well, but he has 2 bad discs in his back. He refuses to have them repaired since he wants to go to work every day. He has been doing this trade since he was 18, and opened his own biz 22 years ago. Through hard work and sacrifice, he has created a sucessful biz, I hope I can carry on the tradition.
It looks that way, but he wears a beard. When his hair started to grey, he had 2 stripes right over his head. I used to call him peppie le pew. Now that he has a hard time seeing and hearing, I call him Mr. Magoo. Good thing he has a sense of humor.
Cool. I ask my dad questions every time I don't understand something. The only thing I regret is that I didn't pick up on this stuff when I was younger. I really never knew how smart he is. Just when I think I can stump him he just laughs and say's nice try
Oh yes the good old empty basement with no walls in the way and sraight through ductwork. Havn't seen one of those in a long time. My Dad taught me alot too except He was in aircraft sheet metal started after high school, did His time in the 2nd World war and then went back to the same company and worked there till He retired as plant superindendent. I worked there for a few years too as did half the family. That is where you can really learn to make your work accutate and neat.
