Great day today went to Plowboy's house in Urbana Ill.
Plowboy or (arron) is the builder of the spacetruck and his current project is the lunar lander.He had a get together today and invited people from around the midwest to his house to meet the ruler of all rulers when it comes to metal workin Mr Fay Butler.This man has forgot more about metal working than most of us will ever know.
I was thourghly impressed with him as he went out of his way to speak and introduce himself to everyone who pulled in the drive.No question was a dumb question tried to answer anything he could.If you ever catch motorcycle mania 2 with jesse james and kidrock at the beginning of the show Fay is the one who taught Jesse how to shape and rivet the copper tank on his bike.Burgers,Beer,Great hospitality and metal workin.Well worth the 550 mile round trip.

Man, from what you've said, Mr. Butler sounds like quite a guy. I love it when people share their knowledge without pretense. It's part of what makes the HAMB and the Jockey Journal so cool too.
