Jason Sheets spends a lot of time in his Jefferson Boulevard garage. A machinist by trade, he works full time for Central Precision in Boonsboro, but weekends and evenings are reserved for his own projects and customers. “I can do machining and welding on anything, lawn mowers, engines, it doesn't matter,” Sheets said. Sheets also uses his skills as a custom car and motorcycle builder. He got his motorcycle license when he was 18. He's been doing work part time out of his shop for about 10 years and recently took a two-week road trip to California with his wife, Jen Sheets, to participate in the Born Free 5 show.
