I bet so. Fella probably does it a hundred times a day. Tow truck place I worked for had mechanics who would just kill the book time on all the old "traditional" repairs. Small block chevy water pumps in no time. Stuff somehow takes me all afternoon.

Waas,

the real deal & you probably have some of his plants. I am pretty sure that is J. Hupp of Western Evergreen

Jason Hupp indeed. Skilled grafter, check. Family farms loaded with cool seedlings and witches brooms. Check. Good nursery with some really decent plants. No. Great nursery with some really awesome new finds. Check!

I heard about that gizmo that spins on the bud strip. Fun to see it an action.

Yes ...ive seen it before, some places have been using converted sewing machine motors along with the foot petal to start, stop and control speed reduction. If my memory is correct i think Bodwens nursery have been using them for years for production grafting.
