Letter to Curt Smith and the UUCM Congregation

Curt you and the Board voted to fire us if we didn’t take down select sections of my web log.

My blog is still up:


Heck, you’re here aren’t you?

You claimed this was because of a letter Paul Doolittle solicited from Michael Mancini of All American Auto Restorations, a man Lynn Shackelford refused to sell his car to because Lynn (aka the owner) wanted his car to go to someone who would cherish it the way he does.

You’ve certainly put me on the warpath and I’ll supeona every member of the congregation if I must, before this is all over, in my battle for justice from Paul Doolittle.

Or do you have something else to hide from the congregation?

About Art

55 years old. By training, ability and experience I am a master toolmaker. My most recent projects include designing and building a process to grind a G rotor pump shaft with four diameters and holding all four diameters within plus or minus 4 microns of nominal. This was an automated process using two centerless grinders refitted to my specifications using automatic load and unload machines plus automatic feedback gauging. I also designed and built an inspection machine to check for the presence and size of a straight knurl on a hinge pin using a vision system for non-contact gauging.
