I started doing locksmithing one time, but people did not want to pay. I amused myself for a time, though. If anybody has a Kwikset or Schlage lock they need re-keyed, I'm your man. I have enough pins and small parts to last me three lifetimes.

Willy, I started collecting "dead Presidents" one time, almost 50 years ago. Then I got married. Any idea I had of collecting such things quickly evaporated when I said "I do". Rolling Eyes

I was also a member of the S.P.E.B.S.Q.S.A. for a time in the 1960's.

So.....you were in a barber shop quartet!

I can't sing to save my life but I do play the saxaphone.

I'm impressed!  You are the only soul on earth besides me who ever heard of that bunch.  

Actually, I was in a barber shop choir, ala Mitch Miller and the Gang.  Our band director at school was a member and wanted to start a choir.  We had 12 guys.  It was a good experience for a high school kid.

I've played the euphonium in school or community bands for 45 years.

I fun shoot vintage military caliber rifles on occasion.

There seems to be a collection of pre-war panel meters here. Hundreds of the damn things.

Also pre-war transmitting tubes.

Somehow everyone assumes I'm a Diesel Mercedes guru..
