     This is a list of companies I have done business with in the past that have provided consistently good service and quality results:



  • CAULDRON LLCI am the CEO of this company that manufactures engineered machinery parts to solve existing problems with machinery.
  • Performance Fabrication:  If you have a requirement for  a challenging machined part in small quantities, these guys are unsurpassed.
  • Cal Body Steel:  Excellent Bay Area shop for large and small punched and formed parts.
  • XTest:  I learned everything I know about automotive testing from the owner of this automotive testing company, Dale Gadbois. 
  • Ramsay Highlander Incorporated: If you need a custom made piece of mobile equipment made of stainless steel, this is the company you should talk too. 

Articles and Video about My Machine Designs

Nice article on a Romaine harvester I designed in OEM Off Highway Magazine.

Another article in OEM Off Highway with a picture of a Romaine harvester.

Nice photo of an art deco style engine grill I designed.

Some information in this article pertaining to the waterjet harvester.

Look at page 19 for a nice picture of the "Celery Stalker" celery machine that I designed.

Video of Automated Waterjet Romaine Harvester in action.

My group at Indian Motorcycle designed this very large die casting that won an award from the North American Die Casting Council.

    I was the principal designer on this lettuce harvester that cuts with high pressure water.

    I'm sure this design has evolved since I worked on it, but I was the principal engineer on the successful prototype of this military wrecker body.  At that time this wrecker was built by Stewart and Stevenson.  

Just because it's industrial doesn't mean it can't look good.  I designed this art deco style grill for a mechanical lettuce harvester.

This detailed radiator cover shows off the waterjet cutting capability on stainless sheet.
