Ahhhh.. Home again!
« on: July 20, 2012, 07:18:00 AM »
Hi all;  This is Dean Williams.  Many of you already know me, and I know you.  Just as I like it.
Coming from the recent carnage that was once "the" place, I'm happy to be at the new home
for old shop dogs.
For the folks that don't know, I was a welder and machinist my last 30 something years, and
as I retired out, went straight into my little home shop.  That's about it.  Just me and the dogs
here at home in Idaho, USA, along with a new place to call my "web home".
Thank you, John!  It's gonna be great!

Great to see you here Dean !
Building an engine takes Patience, Planning, Preparation and Machining.
Procrastination is nearly the same, but it precludes machining.
Thus, an engine will only be built once the procrastination stops and the machining begins!
