My Grandfather the German bandonian player was a machinist by trade, he actually made gears for Harley Davidson way back when Milwaukee was a cheese town in Wisconsin. He gave me all his basement tools when I was about five because nobody else ever went down there to see what he did.
I still use these tools today. The one time I saw him play his bandonian created an unforgettable memory of intensity and joy with which to gauge all my future musical activities. I keep this in mind as I work in the shop.
