2015 Metal Working Craftsman of the year award Presented to William R. Robertson

(Edit: When I originally read the on-line content that became this post I skipped the paragraph regarding the actual award presentation – unlike other years it didn’t occur at NAMES. I noticed my error today when paging through the same story in Home Shop Machinist. The resulting post doesn’t make a whole lot of sense so I’ll just leave you all with a hotlink to a favorite image of Mr. Robertson’s modelling and encourage those interested in modelling to go see NAMES (North American Model Engineering Society meet currently held just outside Detroit) if they can – Next year’s winner will likely be there in person as per tradition.)

While I’m here I guess I should note that William Robertson has been named Metal Working Craftsman of the year for 2015 by the Joe Martin Foundation. http://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/Robertson.htm Here’s one of my favourites from the online museum – hopefully they don’t mind the hotlink – model railroaders should see more work like this: http://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/images/WmRob44.jpg
