I tried and failed to come up with a suitable metal/armor pun. Anyways, I have some connections with the NAVIT program at Northland Pioneer College in Arizona. See here for some welding photos at the St. Johns facility.
This time I got a quick tour of the metal art class in Show Low where they are crafting some impressive armor. I felt like one of those old men in The Two Towers who was too old and fat to go to war. Except it was nothing like that, I was just taking a few photos.
