Default Greetings from northern Mn

Hello, I am a metal enthusiast in most forms, I own a part time welding, Fabrication and machining business in Northern Mn.

My everyday job is restoring WW2 fighter airplanes. I work mostly with aluminum a lot of hydroforming, stretching hand forming and so on. Our restorations are next level with authenticity being a priority.

I'm here to pick up tips from the masters!

Wellcome Kris. I suspect that you will be able to teach the vast majority of us mere mortals a thing or two about working with aluminium based, on what I see coming out of Avspecs here in New Zealand.
