Hey Marshall.....Although I have been a "fabricator" for over 30 years, I
have never referred to myself as a "fabber". Sometimes I call myself a
"fabricator", but usually just a "blacksmith"....However, I have been
referred to by management as a "robot", "Mr. automatic", "Lab Rat" and even
a "sub-professional".

My good buddy Mike Miller up north at Boeing Commercial and myself kinda
like the term "Rapid-Fab". With the aggressive schedules and wonderful
people we deal with (I mean that in the kindest sense...really), we thought
it would be a kick to answer the phone "Rabid-Fab" ;-)
