Steve, I'll be damned. How cool to receive something like that from someone so close to it all. In the late 70's I left school and went to work for some of my family selling welding supplies. In one of the industrial parks around Huntsville was a German company named Bruderer that was a customer. They built high speed punch presses capable then of 25,000 pcs. per min. Can't imagine what they might be capable of now if they're still in business. The place looked like a giant hospital surgical suite and sounded as if a hundred machine guns were being shot simultaneously. Anyway, I wonder if there might be some sort of connection, considering the name?
