Basic Information

About Toolguy
I have over 45 years of experience as a tool and die maker. I have a business called Protocall Design, LLC. I make tools, parts, and prototypes.

I went through both the Boeing and Cessna tool and die schools. I have worked in many job shops and at machining positions at other companies.

My father was a tool and die maker, and I started learning from him when I was young.

I can pretty much invent on demand, and a lot of my business is developing new products and prototypes for myself and for customers.
