With Tommy McNabb’s blessings I am pleased to continue the legacy of McNabb Presses at

Tommy passed on September 23, 2019.
"I met Tommy while teaching Pattern Development in Damascus Steel at the John C. Campbell Folk School in 1983. He was an outstanding student and we became fast friends. Tommy and I traveled from coast to coast as he photographed my architectural metalwork. We both enjoyed collaborating on projects from his shop in North Carolina to mine in Montana. I’m proud to have started building hydraulic presses with Tommy in 2006. Tommy’s great friendship is something I continue to cherish."" - Glenn Gilmore Contact: 406-961-1861 or glenn@gilmoremetal.com
