    This reminded me of a time when I was working as security in a hospital. I was escorting a gentleman of color out of the building for showing his ass. He looked and me and said "You're prejudiced."

    I said, "Who me? No, not me. I hate everybody equally! As a matter of fact, most days I can barely stand to be around myself!"

    Regardless of my social (most would say "ANTI-social") standing, I got him gone.

    This cartoon is me in a nutshell...

    First time using an optical center punch. I wanted to hit my head against the wall for not getting one a long time ago.

    I'm also realizing the hardware I have is way to small. This thing will be a tank.

    Well, doesnt look like I made a lot of progress. Some holes are counterbored on the other side. Made a few mistakes already Had to redo a bit. Lucklily had laid out one extra "top". Bad sign as this is still the easy part.

    Added a fuck up counter on the first post for you guys. HighVoltageLinesman.gif

    Ordered new hardware and some taps. Hopefully they get here quickly.

    And yes, I'm making two. Hopefully I end up with two.

    Aside from tapping 12 holes and of course all the internals, these are looking pretty good. Everything seems to line up.

    If I keep going with these kind of projects, I'll be grabbing a benchtop drill press for the shop. So many bit changes.

    Time to work on blades a bit.

    That hurts @crogers. I only took pictures of the good side. But, still came out pretty cool damn it!

    Not much in the way of progress. This puppy is killing me.

    Trimmed some pivots down. Got some rough blades. By the end of the weekend I'd like to have it all mocked up and functioning.

    not very exciting pictures. It's what you get.

    Awww.... should we get you some salve for your butt hurt? :bwah:

    You gotta admit, you did screw up A LOT last year. BUT, (and that's a BIG BUT, and, much like Sir Mix-A-Lot, I LIKE 'EM! :cheesydevil:) you did find work-a-rounds and/or fixes and showed off a damn fine piece at the end. Even if you only showed the good side. I've seen others do that as well.

    Well, get back to work. That shit ain't gonna finish itself!


    Some working music for ya!!
