Default 69 and Holding

Hi Folks,
ole Blake here. Just and old man who has been building and flying model airplanes since 1948. I build more then fly. I have a pretty good knowledge mechanics and a fair amount of electronics, I am an A&P FAA certified mechanic. I am retired senior mechanic from Lear, Seigler, Vought Aircraft and Robins Airforce base. I work sheetmetal, plastic, wood and many other materials. However computers came late in my life and i am trying to catch up but they move faster then I can run on the one leg I got left. So from time to time I need a leettle help. I am savy to most things but go slowly when explaining thing to me...This old leather skin is pretty tough and it take a while for stuff to penetrate thru it. Let me know if I can help with advice, problems and most anything but money...I spent all my on model airplanes and groceries.
That's me..
ole Blake

You know that saying, "can't teach an old dog new tricks"? I don't believe that.
