2023 Has Flown By Without Me

Here it is, September 10th already, and things are just not happening. I had every intention of getting back at it, and making 2023 a fantastic year for new products and designs.

Life had other plans. I took the opportunity to trade in my 2018 Ford F150 which was a BEAUTIFUL truck. I drove home in a new 2022 F250, which is very nice, but a completely different beast. I wanted a truck with more UMPH! More towing capacity, and more ability to tow larger trailers. The trade off was the additional expense of course, along with moving from 22 MPG to 13 MPG. I notice the extra fuel costs, but I have come to love this truck as well.

A huge April storm ripped shingles off of my roof, and did other damage, as well as much worse damage to 87,000 other homes in the area. So I had to wrestle with my insurance company, because they wanted to deny my claim. “Your 30-year roof is 25 years old … It is TOO OLD to be covered under your policy!” It took a letter to the Kentucky State Insurance Commissioner to fix THAT problem, and now my home has a brand new roof! I paid my $5,000.00 deductible as I accepted when I bought the policy, and they picked up the other $13,000.00.

Then in June, Gary, my brother in law was in his yard in southern California. He was trying out a cordless lawnmower some Mormon missionaries had brought to him, to make the task easier. Gary was 83, but very active and seemingly in good health for his age. My sister sent me a text photo of him standing behind the mower, and my very FIRTST thought was, “That is going to give him a heart attack!” Less than an hour later, his son called me from Florida to report that Gary was found lying on his back in the yard by my sister, Lynda. She called 9-1-1, but they were unable to revive him.

Gary took those #^%$&* JABS and two “boosters” as well. As a Mormon Elder, he wanted to visit patients in hospitals, to give them the Mormon blessings, etc., according to his religious beliefs. That is fine, but the hospitals FORCED him to get The jabs of absolute and irreversible death in order to have that privilege. He took the jabs, and dropped dead shortly afterward. There was no autopsy, so I cannot PROVE that the jabs killed him, but I am not stupid. I will NEVER take that Agenda 2030 forced depopulation cocktail into my bloodstream, an evil poison cooked up by that mentally deranged psychopath Bill Gates and that greasy sewer rat Anthony Fauci. I feel so helpless, as I watch my “jabbed” friends die, one after the other.

I did add several X-TOOL lasers to my shop, along with some other tools in the hopes that I could do a great Christmas Crafts Show in Nashville at the convention center. That dream has faded now. It is too late, and I just do not have the energy I had 12 years ago.

This year is basically over, and I am not even sure we will still have a country, or a currency, or even our FREEDOM, moving into 2024. Biblical prophecy is unfolding before our eyes, and still, people are ignoring the obvious signs.


Update – June 2023

I know … what is happening here? Well, the world has changed, and things are very uncertain in our future. The covid zombie apocalypse seems to have finally ended, but threats of another PLANdemic are on the horizon.

I have been adding machines and tools to my shop in the interim. I added a dual drum sander, a 48″ 12 gauge finger brake, a TIG welder, and most recently, I have added several lasers to my bag-o-tricks!

My most recent laser arrived a week ago. It is an X-TOOL P2, a 55 Watt CO2 laser that will be completely awesome, once I get it set up and working. I am looking at a possible Christmas craft show in Nashville, at the convention center. I hope to have a myriad of laser cut Christmas decorations to display and sell, along with the other things like metal art and cnc routed items.

TIME is in such short supply, and I am not getting any younger. I seem to have the spirit of a 25-year-old, trapped in this 65-year-old body. I just cannot seem to find the motivation to jump out of bed at 6:00 AM to start my day any longer.

The next few weeks will determine whether or not I can get a Christmas Craft Show together or not. Frankly, I am more concerned about the future of America, the CBDC digital currency that will strip Americans of their freedoms and privacy, and the encroachment of The New World Order. I wish our world was more stable, but as things stand, I am taking things one day at a time.


It Is 2023! Time To Start Creating!

When the covid zombie apocalypse was thrust upon us by our corrupt government, the whole world changed! People were actually afraid of the AIR! I shut down my eight vendor booths, and stopped doing anything. I really have not used my shop machines and tools much since 2019.

Now it is 2023. I have been adding machines and tools to both the wood shop and the metal shop. I have a “To Do” list that would require me to clone myself fifty times over, just to get everything done.

You cannot hire anyone now. Young and inexperienced people all want $25.00 per hour just to stare at their phones! Older folks, yes … but due to my own health (or lack of it) I worry about older folks falling off of a roof, or down a flight of stairs, or getting hurt trying to lift something, or move something that is beyond their years while they try to convince themselves that they’ve still got it!

A very good friend was helping me, and we worked well together. However, he suffered a massive stroke on New Year’s Even 2021, and now he is very limited in what he can do. So I am a one-man show now.

In the past three years I have added many things to my shops:

  • A 48″ 12 Gauge Finger Brake from Grizzly Tools
  • A 21″ Helical Planer from Grizzly Tools
  • A large dust collection unit.
  • Four X-Tool laser machines with the 20 Watt and 40 Watt blue diode lasers, and two 5 Watt Infrared heads.
  • A new X-TOOL P2 55 Watt CO2 laser machine. I am REALLY excited about this one!
  • I traded in my 2018 F150 for a 2022 F250
  • I recently replaced my stolen car carrier trailer with a new custom built gooseneck trailer.
  • I added a CreatBot D600 PRO 3D Printer
  • I also got the Einstar Handheld 3D scanner.

So my shops are VERY capable. In fact, I am now the only ‘weak link’ in the process to make my millions! However, I am going to give the old college try! I will get back out thee and see what I can accomplish.

My GOAL is to begin producing Christmas decorations, and Halloween decorations, in quantities that will make for a great craft show sale near the end of the year. I want to get a booth at the big Nashville Christmas Show at the Grand Old Opry. That is ‘Spensive, Lucy! So I have to force myself to produce an inventory to SELL!

Wish me luck!





My long awaited SIX INCH Rail Riser Kit is now available! (Limited stock on hand.) This kit will raise the rails of the PlasmaCAM DHC2 (4×4) and the Samson 510 (5×10) tables 4.25 inches, to give your table fully SIX INCHES of Z clearance when combined with the PlasmaCAM (CSU) Customizable Size Upgrade for your DesignEdge license.*

This opens up a lot of possibilities! For example, this will allow you to lay a 6″ square or rectangular tube onto the grates and cut key slots along one side.

With a little “Redneck Engineering” and some out-of-the-box thinking, it also opens up the possibility of cutting PIPE up to 6″ in diameter WITHOUT the costly PlasmaCAM pipe cutting attachment or the software upgrade!

The kit is available in limited quantities for both the 4×4 DHC2 tables ($1,000.00) or the Samson 510 tables ($1,200.00). It will also work on the older 4×4 DHC tables, giving you 5-1/2″ of Z clearance. Each kit has all of the hardware necessary for BOLT-ON installation. NO DRILLING IS REQUIRED! This kit WILL NOT VOID your PlasmaCam warranty!

The kit includes a new extended length ACME screw for the Z motor, and an extended dust cover. It also has an extended length backing plate.

The corner brackets retain the original factory positions for the rails, and the 510 kit has extension blocks that raise the center joint of the two rails to the new height.

Several of these kits have been installed already, and the owners LOVE them!

  • The (CSU) Customizable Size Upgrade to DesignEdge software is REQUIRED in order for your table to make full use of the six inch Z configuration. This upgrade can ONLY be purchased directly from PlasmaCAM for $998.00

To purchase this kit for YOUR table, contact me at sixinchz@mail.com or visit my ETSY Store to purchase the kit directly.


What a Wild Ride!

Today is 10/10/2021. We are deep into this fake bogeyman covid-19 pandemic hoax, and the whole world has gone crazy. I cannot tell people what to do, but if you got “the jabs,” all I can say is, get your affairs in order.

I am working on developing a new cylinder cutting system for the PlasmaCam and Samson 510 CNC plasma tables. It is coming along slowly. There just isn’t a lot of extra energy these days. When I get it together, I will make it available in some form, to other table owners.

I wish you all well as you plod though this zombie apocalypse. I sure hope America doesn’t fall. I would not want to live in a world without FREEDOM.


Let’s Make Something!

2020 … What a year! So much DRAMA!


I am returning to my shops to begin making custom metal art and signs again. I have a lot of new ideas, and I have added some new machines to my shops, so I am anxious to get out there and see what I can do.

The cold weather is behind us now, and I can work comfortably in the shops without needing to wear six layers of clothing.

Check back now and then, to see what I will be adding to this site.
