Sure seems like you take the time to read answer about every post. Probably a few others do too but I sure see your name a lot.

In addition to Rocky D being an all-round nice guy, he has a wealth of information in his head. If he doesn't offload some of it periodically, his head will 'splode. :D

Thanks, Vince, and Pop you're closer to the truth than you realize....fact is, I had 4 sons...none are interested in metal fabrication. So, as I be getting closer to the Pearly Gates, I want to share what I've learned with some of you young'uns. And in a way that you can understand it...that's why my answers are simple in most cases. I learned long time ago, that a good teacher will try to understand a question from inside of the guys head that asks it...also that a guy can only do what you tell him, in his own way...we all have limitations, and different skill levels, so I try to set the table for ya, and let you eat the meal. :D Besides...it's fun, too! :D

If you notice in his picture, his head is tilted towards his right side. His brain is larger and heavier on that side.
You've probably heard about how your brain is divided into two halves, where one half does some things better than the other. The right side of the brain is said to control the big picture, imagination, the present and the future, and visual, conceptual aspects of life.
This must be where it comes from :D

I've been trying to weld those two halves of my brain together all my life, and I just can't get anything to stick. :p
Rocky, I know what you mean. As I get older, I'm not concerned so much with material gain, but I do have an interest in learning (What for? I'm an old coot and can't use most of it...) and passing on what I know and what new information I find. It just seems more worthwhile than other pursuits.

Yep. Very helpful guy indeed and has a wealth of information from his experience in welding. He's always been there on every projects and questions I have.
My hat's off to Rocky, usmcpop and many others here who has helped a fellow welder.

Please donít stop sharing until your head is empty. Then you can learn some more and share some more!:)
God bless all of you that give of your time to help us that still have sooo much to learn!:)

yes, thanks Rocky, and everyone else who has helped me with questions. i have certainly learned a lot on this great forum.
Rock, since your 4 sons have other interests, can you adopt me :D
...and what's all this talk about Pearly Gates? There seemed to be a long period when you weren't posting alot, but glad to see you back in action passin' on the knowledge. Much appreciation here.
