RECITALS: The following is a recital of facts underlying this Agreement: Trust is the legal and beneficial owner of Forty (40) shares (the "Shares"), representing one hundred (100%) percent of the issued and outstanding shares of capital stock of Eugene Welding Co. ("EWCO"), a Michigan corporation. Seller has agreed to sell, and Buyer has agreed to buy, the Shares, as well as any and all dividends now owing or hereafter to be declared thereon, on the terms and conditions set forth herein. NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of and in reliance upon the representations, warranties, covenants and agreements contained herein, the parties hereto agree as follows: 1. SALE AND PURCHASE. Seller shall sell and convey to Buyer, and Buyer shall buy from Seller, the Shares, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement. 2. A. PURCHASE PRICE AND PAYMENT. Buyer shall pay One Million Eighty-Five Thousand Four Hundred Fifty 00/100 ($1,085,450.00) Dollars (the "Purchase Price") for the Shares. The Purchase Price shall be paid as follows: (i) Seven Hundred Thirty-Five Thousand Four Hundred Fifty and 00/100 ($735,450.00) Dollars in cash, by cashier's check or wire transfer at Closing; and (ii) The balance of Three Hundred Fifty Thousand and 00/100 ($350,000.00) Dollars in the form of common shares of stock of Buyer (the "Share Consideration") valued based on the price per share for those shares (the "Private Placement Shares") sold by Buyer during its private placement of shares occurring between the date hereof and Closing. (For example, if the Private Placement Shares are sold for Five and 00/100 [$5.00] Dollars per share, Seller will receive seventy thousand [70,000] common shares of Buyer's stock.) -1- B. SHARE CONSIDERATION. Seller understands and acknowledges that Buyer is planning to merge with and into a "public shell" upon or shortly following Closing.

INDEMNIFICATION AND LIMITATION OF LIABILITY OF SELLER. A. BUYER'S INDEMNITY.

However, Seller's obligations, if any, to indemnify Buyer hereunder shall be limited to the amount of Three Hundred Fifty Thousand and 00/100 ($350,000.00) Dollars or the then current value of the Share Consideration as it may increase or decrease in value; unless the claim for indemnity is based on the intentional misrepresentation or fraud of Seller, in which case there shall be no such limitation on Buyer's right to indemnify. B. SELLER'S INDEMNITY. Without limiting any other rights or remedies available to Seller, Buyer shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Seller from, against and with respect to any claim, liability, obligation, loss, damage, assessment, judgment, cost and expense (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys' and accountants' fees and costs and expenses reasonably incurred in investigating, preparing, defending against or prosecuting any litigation or claim, action, suit, proceeding or demand) of any kind or character arising out of or in any manner, incident, relating or attributable to and without giving effect to any tax benefit to the indemnified party (i)any material inaccuracy in any representation or breach of warranty of Buyer contained in this Agreement or in any certificate, instrument of transfer or other document or agreement executed by Buyer in connection with this Agreement or otherwise made or given in connection with this Agreement, and (ii) any failure by Buyer to perform or observe, or to have performed or observed, in full any covenant, agreement or condition to be performed or observed by it under this Agreement or under any certificates or other documents or agreements executed by Buyer in connection with this Agreement. However, Buyer's obligations, if any, to indemnify Seller hereunder shall not exceed the amount of Three Hundred Fifty Thousand and 00/100 ($350,000.00) Dollars, unless the claim for indemnity is based on the intentional misrepresentation or fraud of Buyer, in which case there shall be no such limitation on Seller's right to indemnification. C. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY AND REMEDIES. The parties agree that based upon a number of factors, including without limitation, the expedited time schedule for the transaction, the Seller's liability to Buyer or EWCO for any and all matters arising out of this Agreement, or the transactions contemplated herein, including without limitation, any breach of the Seller's representations, warranties, covenants, obligations or conditions, shall be limited to the amount of Three Hundred Fifty Thousand and 00/100 ($350,000.00) Dollars or the then current value of the Share Consideration as it may increase or -24- decrease in value; unless the claim for indemnity is based on the intentional misrepresentation or fraud of Seller, in which case there shall be no such limitation on Buyer's right to indemnify. Furthermore, any claim, liability, obligation, loss, damage, assessment, judgment, cost and expense of Buyer, its successors, assigns or affiliates of any kind or character arising out of or in any manner, incident, relating or attributable to this Agreement, or the transaction described herein, including without limitation those arising from Seller's failure to indemnify Buyer, Buyer's successor and assigns, or Seller's breach of any representation, warranty, covenant or obligation of this Agreement, may be satisfied only out of the proceeds of sale received upon execution of any judgment for such amounts upon the Share Consideration and out of any dividend from the Share Consideration payable to Seller, or loans secured (or which can be secured) by Seller based on and secured by the Share Consideration, and the Buyer waives and the Seller shall not be liable for any deficiency. The proceeds of any portion of the Share Consideration liquidated to satisfy any such claim, liability, obligation, loss, damage, assessment, judgment, cost and expense shall be net of the tax cost to the Seller to liquidate such Share Consideration. The Buyer acknowledges and agrees that the Seller may not be permitted by applicable laws to sell, transfer or assign the Share Consideration for some period of time after the Closing, and in such event, and in the event Seller is otherwise unable to liquidate the Share Consideration (or any portion thereof) or to borrow funds against those shares, the Buyer agrees to withhold from the exercise of such execution remedy until such applicable restrictive periods have lapsed. The Buyer hereby acknowledges and agrees that from and after Closing, its sole remedy with respect to the claims arising hereunder, shall be pursuant to the indemnification provsions contained herein. 16.

Seller shall hold harmless and indemnify Buyer and Buyer's officers, directors, and shareholders from and against any claim for broker's, finder's or financial advisor's fees, including any cost or expense incurred in connection with the defense of any suit claiming such fees, or in any other manner pertaining to claims for such fees, -25- which may become payable by reason of the acts or omissions of Seller or EWCO. Buyer represents and warrants to Seller that the services of a broker or finder have not been used by Buyer in connection with any of the matters pertaining to this transaction and that no broker's or finder's fee shall become payable by Seller by reason of the execution of this Agreement or the consummation of the transactions contemplated herein or arising out of the acts or omissions of Buyer.

ACCOUNTING RECORDS.
