You're right, when I worked at Weirton steel in the 70's it was part of national steel. Got laid off in 1975 and moved to Tennessee where I went to work for a Firestone Plant and then a Bridgestone Plant and retired from there as a tool and die maker in 2013, after 38 years Welcome and enjoy the forum
