Looked in my storage closet this afternoon and thought I was in the midst of a nightmare. I tried to forget that there are more shelves holding aluminum and also a few boxes stored in my old office building.
Some of my daughters and granddaughters are fond of aluminum, but they can absorb only a limited amount.
Bill Knecht, who became the owner of the Forge in 1978, agreed with this limitation, perhaps a little unhappily, but he too, loved the old aluminum, and backed our efforts whole heartily, as we began to record the background of aluminum wares.
Before long, Bill added the letter "K' and "touch-marks" to the Forge's mark.
