Hi Zee, glad you checked in buddy. Yeah I married both of my daughters at the same time lucky me huh. But it cost me to divorce the youngest one also. Love my girls like you but they are a pain in the butt some time. Is the shop last on the list and moma gets her's first. Go idea bud then she can't complain when you build yours and add all your new toys to it.
Don't be a stranger buddy keep us informed more often and stay well my friend.

I can relate Zee. Both of my girls are married now and have kids of their own. I was a basket case at both weddings. Fortunately, I gained two great sons in law.

Zee who!!

Well at least we know that you are still above ground :lolb:

Take care buddy, and when you are ready; and have some time for the hobbies I'm sure we will still be here wondering what ever happened to your Monitor project.
Can't imaging starting a remodel/build project in the middle of the winter; I hope that is all goes well and we get to see pictures of the new shop!

Dang Zee............you've been one busy boy and will be for the foreseeable future!

Thanks for checking in. I reference your Elmer's #43 build thread often.

Jim

PS: I'm looking forward to seeing shop and equipment pictures next spring.

Hey Zee, Sounds like you are a gluten for punishment.

It will be all over so quickly then we will still be here waiting to see you christen your new grandchildren machine tools  :embarassed:

Jo

P.S. Don't forget to add a couple of casting sets to the list of things for the new workshop... you'll need something to test the new machines out on  ;)

Hi Zee,

Been there, done that; so I understand where you are, especially the bawling as your little girl is snatched away to be someone's woman.

Best Regards
Bob

He lives  :stickpoke:

I have two daughters and have married one of them (I am a Salvation Army Officer so yes I actually did the ceremony). A totally heart wrenching time (especially when you ask your soon to be son in law if he will take your daughter to be his wife).

# 2 gets married in April and to a young man who loves to tinker with mechanical stuff so we get on great. Not sure if I am going to do this wedding though.

Stay in touch even if it is so we all see that you are still breathing

Cheers

Hopefully the wedding did not have any boring tools, or dull bits...!

Hello my friends. I hope I can still call you all that. I've been out of touch for a while.
Unfortunately, I still expect to be out for a while yet.

Firstly, I hope this finds you and yours all in good health and having fun. A belated Merry/Happy Christmas and my best wishes for the New Year.

The wedding was great. I should have a couple of pics soon. I mean really great. I managed to do a Viennese waltz with my daughter and then another with my wife. At my age and worthless body...it's quite a feat. Very fast.

And now to more important things...

We've been busy emptying out the 1st floor in preparation of the remodel. The digging started today.
A huge project. I don't recall if I'd mentioned what we are doing...

After fruitless searching for a home to retire to (less than two years away!!!) we decided to stay put and remodel the house so we can stay here comfortably until...how to put this...it's time to close shop permanently.

Bumping the 1st floor out 8 feet, adding a sun porch, converting the garage to a master bedroom (so we don't have to deal with stairs), and adding a garage...along with...yes...a workshop!!!

Digging started today! Very scary seeing all the huge equipment and the big holes.

The workshop looks like it will end up to be about 13'6" by 18'or 19'. I think that should be more than sufficient.
And two windows!!! No more basement for me. And it's all mine. Mine. None of this storing of canned veggies and fruit in my area anymore.

I can't wait for March/April. Then I'll order my mill and lathe. I'll have questions for you all.

That's it for now. Just a quickie note to let you all know I do think of you.

I will be back.

Yes yes. I'll have pictures.

Thanks for your patience.

Great to hear from you again! Glad things are moving along, construction is always a big upheaval but sounds well worth it.
