Just wanted to wish everyone a merry Christmas !!
Same to you Travis - and to everybody else here.
BTW: Melnick isn't a name I run across every day. Are you by any chance related to the late Bob Melnick of the Boston area? He was a good friend, and one of the best welders that I have ever encountered.
Merry Christmas to you & your family !
