Yes, a pretty good feeling, Tripper, but I'll just start on another project. You know that we have to have problems to solve or we wouldn't be builders.

Oh Doc., my shop is an archrib about that wide.
Anyhow, I found a good looking brass connection in my gas line had sprung a leak. No amount of loosening and tightening would fix it. I took it out...

Dozer, the list is not getting shorter, because life is getting more like a dance all of the time, one step forward, two sideways and one back. When I was timing the draglink arm of the wiper, I...

I like the looks of a generator too. I would think you don't need a fan on your generator, because either the big fan will provide enough airflow or the lack of fenders and side curtains will bring...

I agree with you JB, I don't like the really rough 'over-kill rat' look, when a car can look quite pleasing with 'out-of-the-box' additions and no shine. You have 'nailed' the latter. Keep on...

I'm in both of those groups, Kenny. I'm partially dyslectic, and I believe it helps me think outside the box. It makes me more ambidextrous and makes my reading and writing more adventurous. I have...

I really like making levers, fulcrums and pivots, so watching you work gives me quite a glow. I think I better go and take a cold shower now.
