My guru was just an outright A hole that didnt get along with anyone ,just plain miserable 24/7.It wasnt until I bought my first lead working kit that he started talking to me. mostly he'd walk by and laugh at me seeing most of my lead on the floor then little by little he'd show me a few things until one day he asked the boss if I could help him on his restorations. The man was full of knowlege and I learned so much but I swear I wanted to punch him in the face at least five times a day,after about a month I started busting his *** just like he did mine and we got fairly close. I miss that old fossil and think of him almost every day...
