Re: Tulsa Winch Co, who dat?
[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Who knows? Maybe in the early eighties some first-day-on-the-job OSHA gal looking to make a big score walked into the historic Tulsa Winch Factory/Foundry; looked at the smoke from the castings and said: "Eeeeeeewwwwwww! You HAVE to clean this up!" and the grizzed old oilfield Okie who owned it said: "All I HAVE to do is die!" and that, perhaps, was the end of Tulsa. HUNDREDS of ma and pa foundries have been closed in just that fashion across the nation, and the work has all gone to China, Korea, Taiwan, etc. somehow THEIR LUNGS don't matter to OSHA.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img] neither, I might add...do OUR JOBS!
