I can’t find a place like this in north Texas still open-
Last one I found was in Plano that closed in 2014-
I like this idea-

Well shoot! I swung by the place and couldn’t find it. Looked to be in a small industrial park but no sign. So I called them. He said they moved to a new location. Ok, what’s the new address? Well we’re not open!...? Said the new shop doesn’t have electricity nor water yet. Said it would probably be a couple weeks. Damit! I did speak with him a bit. Seemed like a really nice guy. Told him my biggest job is replacing an air blending actuator for the heat/ac system (which means removing most of the dash board). Said it shouldn’t be a problem and he could help. Said he doesn’t charge to answer questions or simple help like moving something that would take more than one person to move/remove. But he said if he starts doing all the work he may charge, but it’s open for negotiation. Seemed like a really nice straightforward dude.

I used them in the Navy. We sandblasted our spark plugs in a special little cabinet back then.

I have a short attention spa

I’ve heard good things about those shops. I wish there was one close to me for wood working.
