I'm 59:cheerful::big grin:. I was on a structural metal job last summer laying out and setting up truss jigs... there were days it just was not fun.

Steel workers have a tough career, I don't think you guys typically make it past 40 in this industry. :encourage: you guys deserve every penny you get.
