That's all good news Dave. There is nothing like a bit of 'metal therapy' to make you feel a whole lot better.

Hay Dave,

Did you ever get that zipper tattoo done?

It's time to post a photo.

No photo.. then it didn't happen.

Will do Don   The next thing I'm doing tomorrow is a pair of these.....should be simple, and I get to try out my new shop chair at the lathe.

If I get that far....I'll work on the rods some more.   Just got sticks of material for the rods, pistons and cylinder liners    I don't think William will be racing tomorrow.

but I'll be starting with some lathe clean up.....it's buried.

Got off to a slow start, but making chips on liners today.   Lots of stock to come out of these    tempted to.fire up the logan....but Samantha Bell is making such a sweet sound.

I'll be firing up the Logan when the 917 gets started....it hogs stock in a hurry....can't push Samantha that hard.   The Logan will take a 15/16 drill as fast as you can spin the feed screw.  8-)

hey Steamer!

Great to see you are feeling good enough to get out in the shop. Nice work and i'll be popping in to check progress.
Do not be like the cat who wanted a fish but was afraid to get his paws wet.
