I sometimes send him horn projects, stuff beyond what I'm comfortable doing, or just don't have time for.
Trick is he lives in Spain. Why would I send a horn to Spain ? He is VERY good, he also likes to buy stuff here in the States and many Ebayers don't ship over seas so he has them send it here, I pass it on to him so like once a month or so a box goes to Espana......Anyway....
So I tell him I have this Olds, has some issues with braces, school band director in the past (or some other non tech) loaded the braces up with like an ounce of solder piled under each brace. Anyway I ask him if he wants to put it back together, he's all OK with that.
So just to make it interesting I send him a photo of the the "project" (old bell I had saved for show and tell)
I say "no problem for you"
He freaks out, what happened to that ? Truck run over it ?
Ha Ha !
Anyway I sent another pic of the actual bell, not so bad. It was fun.....
