So, what kinda tools do you make?

I just really want a bike with a turbo, because their are those times when you pull up too a stop light next to a cop, and I think a really loud PPTTTSHIIISHHHHHHHH would make his day. =P

To answer both posts... I don't really make tools as one would think. ie: wrenches, etc. I am actually a tool and die maker. That is to say I do metal stamping. I design, build and run the steel dies that go in a press that stamp put products like electrical connectors and such. Kinda hard to explain. But I can make just about anything. Uhm - another term : fabricator of sorts.
I live in Eustis, which is near leesburg/mt dora. And have been to winter garden. Nice area. You should come up this way if ya like to "curve"

Would be hard to visit that area anyway considering I'm *from* the area, I don't currently live there.
