    Talk me off of the edge…. How green is the grass really?

    I think I’ll offer a different perspective. I think you need to decide what’s important to you, do you enjoy making old tools work and making the things you need for them, or would you rather work on your project’s? With a young family my shop time is limited, and I’ve discovered old iron is...
