What is your favorite type of metal?
Larry: Aluminum

If you could manufacture anything in the Dickmann Manufacturing Company shop with your favorite type of metal what would you make?
Larry: A custom metal sign to hang on a post at a camping site. 

How would you create it?
Larry: I would use the laser cutter to cut out the sign. The sign would be made of .150" aluminum and be approximately 10" x 14".

What would you use it for?
Larry: I would use the sign to help identify my camping site when we travel to different places in Wisconsin.
