See that aromor Spike is wearing. He built that. He hand forged each plate, about 350 of them. It weighs 37 lbs.. Spike loved working at the forge and quit a very high paying tugboat job to go work at a forge. He was very creative. He'd dpend Sunday afternoon at the forge, for fun, and come home with the most marvelous things he had built. He was a bit dyslexic but he remembered every world he read and in time became an extrelemy good Scrabble player because he could think in so many directions at once.

Give Spike a glue gun and a pile of cardboard and you'd be surprised at what you got back.
