I was reading through my blog list the other day and ScooterMcRad posted about a fellow he follows on Instagram named Brian Alfonsi. It turns out that I have been following Brian for some time on Instagram as well. Brian uses the name craftmethod on Instagram. I started following Brian because of all the cool old machines that he has. I stubbled onto him after following Jeff Tiedeken of Monkey Like Shiny. Brian seems to really understand his history as well as his future. Based on the things he posts, restores, and makes he's one of those people that I really respect.
Do yourself a favor and go over to ScooterMcRad's and read about Brian. Good stuff.
