I was passing through Atlanta with the family and had an opportunity to spend a few minutes with my friend Dale Derry for Metal Tips and Tricks. It was such a good time to watch my kids drive someone else crazy for a few minutes...it was lots of fun! #doritefabrication #doritefab #doritebuilder #iliketomakestuff #steel #jimmydiresta #diy #makersgonnamake

I got a chance to help my friend Keith Rucker from Vintage Machinery Repair a Kurt Vise when he paid me a visit. Be sure to check out this cool video of his visit. On my Dorite Fabrication YouTube channel.

While in LA we got a private tour of the FOOSE shop. Bo and Chip hit it off talking about airplanes, cars and things that go. Bo was so excited to talk with someone that spoke his language that he barely took a breath between sentences. Chip was a gracious Host and listened to his every question. #iliketomakestuff #doritebuilder #doritefabrication #foose #jimmydiresta #steel #welding #metalwork #fabrication #diy #compressedgassolutions #nancyhadleysfac

Uncle Keith Rucker paid a visit to the shop yesterday. It was a pleasure to work with him on a project. I caught him eyeballing my Ellis drill press. It was a fun day. #doritefabrication #barz #doritebuilder #jimmydiresta #iliketomakestuff #steel #machineshop #shoplife #welding #diy

Here's a quick video of me making a repair on a tool holder that I fabricated 10 years ago for the Orlando Fire Department. The tool was a little worse for wear and needed some TCL to put it back in service. @lincolnelectric My Aspect 375 buttered the aluminum right in. Check out the video to see the before and after. #doritebuilder #doritefabrication #iliketomakestuff #jimmydiresta #doityourself #custommade #craftsman #tools #custom #craft #metal #welding #steel #aluminum #fabrication #diy #machining #magnolia

My father's day gift from the family. In every family there is always that one kid....lol!

Be sure to check out my third video of the cannon build. This is where I make a major boneheaded mistake and almost ruin a one of a kind part. @jimmydiresta this is where I almost didn't make the friendly cannon challenge. Check out my YouTube channel, Dorite Fabrication.

Fat Albert, my Civil War Replica cannon I made for the NYC CNC open house @saundersmachineworks made it back home today. A big thanks to John Saunders for helping it get back to the DoRite shop safe and sound. Now that it is home @jimmydiresta you ready to blow up a car? Lol

Riding around the farm wrangling armadillos after church is tough work! Swinging that dart gun around all afternoon can wear a kid out. Love this kid....#doritefabrication #doritebuilder #makingithappen #iliketomakestuff

23 hours into it, we are almost done. Still a little bit to do, but we literally have cleaned and washed away 2 years of grinder dust and dirt. I thought I kept a clean shop, till I pulled everything outside.....glad it's almost done! Back to doing what I love to do! #makingithappen #doritefabrication #doritebuilder #iliketomakestuff

The biannual cleaning of the shop has started. I really enjoy working in a clean organized shop. Can wait to be done...#doritefabrication #doritebuilder #iliketomakestuff #compressed_gas_solutions
