When I put in Buchanan Tool & Die, I had hoped to just move Miracle Chair Company to a new location. However, on further inspection, Miracle Chair had rotted from the inside. It was clearly a time to start a new building. Mike Oates lives quite close and has been a frequent attendee at my operating sessions, so I decided it was time to name a building in his honor. I disassembled Miracle Chair and found that I was able to salvage most of the windows as well as the loading dock and some other pieces.
Sadly, Mike Oates passed away February 19, 2013. A great guy; he is missed.
