If it's the same Arturo I'm talking about, he, was a craftsman.
Some years ago I bought a prediction chest from Bob Mason. It was a masterpiece and worked like a charm. Not long ago I saw it on Hocus for quite a sum.

Not the same. The craftsman worked for Abbott's.. His real name was Glenn Babbs.

He didn't work at Abbott's for very long, did he?

I do know he worked for U.F. Grant for awhile, too.

I don't know if he was an actual employee of Abbott's per se but he made stuff for them for many years on a contracted basis. At least the late 1970's early 1980's.
