Hey you big doof!
you need to start putting your middle name on there somewhere so I can differentiate from all the other tom tierneys out there. I found grampas patent on line (1,216,184). It states that he was living in metcalf, az in 1916 to 1917. That would make him about 31 to 32 years old. I found a website that says metcalf was in greenlee county in eastern az. Now, its a ghost town, but back in the day, it was a big time copper mine. It had a post office from 1899 to 1930 something. I figure grampa was diamond core drilling for copper or some bullpoop. I was wondering why he was inventing stuff and not in the war. Wasn't WWI from 1914 to 1918?
your brother pat

P. S. when are you going to pilot knob mo?
