    Geez, this is quite the history/info trip you’re taking us on! I was stuck on hummus but it’s been cleared up now. Found out and moving on with ya….

    Am so glad you’re an engineer, Matt. (If you were a biochemist I’d have been outahere miles ago.) The info is fascinating. My dad’s family lived in western PA and later in Ohio from the 1850’s to 1930’s — involved in mining and oil drilling. Thanks for bringing to mind some of the stories he told about the old days. Take care.

    At first, judging by the image, I thought it was a tribute to the first Testicle clamp ever made.

    So is the sign itself the ingot, or is the ingot just so old it looks like concrete
