I received a note from a friend, who brought to light some of my recent posts, and that they have been short and to the point. Well I read through a few of them, and you know, I have to agree with him. Work has been stupid busy as of late, I am entertaining the notion of a career change, going from a surveyor, and stepping up to an oilfield consultant overseeing different surveyors from different companies, and co-ordinating projects in that capacity. Things are about 85% there. It would be huge for me and my family if this come through.
So that, working 80 to 90 hours a week, trying to finish a few knives here and there, ordering materials, and supplies, keeping things in order around the house, well I am sure there are a few here who understand all this much to well.
Ok to the point. Some here have asked questions, made comments all in good nature, only to receive a couple few word answers from me. I would like to pause and say I am sorry. I hope none of my comments were taken as snotty, off the cuff or arrogant. I in no way intended to come off sounding like an ass! I have been juggling a boat load this last while, and in trying to give all aspects a piece of my time, that time has grown short, so in typing an answer, the full answer in my head, got real short by the time I started tapping keys, it made full sense as I typed, but in reading back, I see I have provided answers that do seem snippy. Again forgive me.
I will answer most questions posed by anybody here any time, so feel free to ask in the forum or by PM. I would prefer to keep to myself and my clients, where I source my materials, any buisness I have selected to do machine work for me, and names of any parties involved in work I am doing. Primarily in a public forum. This is to protect their interests, and an pricing or deals in place. I have done my homework on this stuff, selected buisness based primairly on quality, and reputation, as well as their willingness to do things my way. I will say, all work is being done, and all materials are sourced within Canada, and the US. So my Pro Series, and any mid-tech colaboration, will be Made in North America.
Thanks for taking the time to read this, and please don't take anything I have typed in the past as more than the ramblings of someone who doesn't have enough hours in a day to address the things that are important. Without you guys, I would not be the maker you have helped me to become.
