    I have tried wood carving til I lost the use of my left hand do to 6 spine/neck surgeries . Have had an old AB I can't even tell you the name unless I dug it out right now I have an, Iwata Eclipse HP CS, Neo TRN1, Paasche Talon, Paasche VL all run by a California air 1hp twin tank 4.6gal and quiet. I bought with my SMC Dremel runs 400,000rpm. I paint simple things like Yard ornaments, stepping stones Some license plates I'm learning with the aluminum. tee shirts, and right now fish lures that I have found I'm not bad at and they are really fun, keeps my mind off the next surgery " amputation of my leg hopefully below the knee and will find that out July 9th but I found a hobby I really like after always doing something involving wood. I am a happy person with so many more medical problems then I can list But I was a juvenile Diabetic and type 1 sucks. I have been married 35 years with 1 son 32 years old 2 gkids. I no longer drive which along with not able to have a day to day job hurts most. The AB'n has really helped and can find myself AB'N at 2:30am a lot of mornings because I can't sleep. I would like to try doing some sign work maybe something to do with caricatures as I love to draw but the way I shake has taken a back seat to other things. I like to chat as might becoming noticeable Like I said wasn't sure how this all works but will cut it off,done right here. If I left something out or done this wrong say so and I will correct it. I do feel lucky I found a site like this, I don't have facebook and not enough money out there that could get me to join. What I have learned here in the last few months you should be all I need. Thanks for having me.

    Welcome to the best place in town. All the cool kids hang out here and you’ve already been told we’re a global family but he forgot to mention we’re a bunch of misfits lol

    Many have used or are using airbrushing as therapy or as a form of rehab, some us need therapy after using the Airbrush when things aren’t going right so I think you’ve successfully found you’re happy place :)
