Lake, I have said it before and I will say it again.

You mess with my herd and there is going to be a Sphinx picking bus driver out of her teeth.

Brow furrowed, she asked, "Don't bother bringing it back here- I'll put on some clothes and take it out there." That's very considerate of her... :lol: She can have her coffee anywhere she wants... I make it a matter of personal policy not to chastise people who are more dangerous than I ...

Re: Summer Interlude

Actually, I just realized that for some reason, I wasn't visualizing a leaf blower, but a snowblower . . . --FreeFlier {ponders} Now THAT might be an interesting experiment, especially with a 2-stage machine.

Warrl, I am NOT going to fix that - just because it's so DAMN funny that you noticed it after all this time...

Re: Gainesville GA 0545 16 January 2022

My sister's first husband was into off-road driving - in mountainous, heavily-wooded territory - and explained to me that the advantage of 4-wheel drive is that you can get stuck deeper in the woods. As I used to teach my students: "Four wheel go does not mean four wheel stop. You have four wh...

Re: Gainesville GA 0545 16 January 2022

We lucked out here. Only 3 inches of snow with rain at the end. I didn't have to shovel at all. My town is proof against snow accumulation this year. My old snowblower destroyed its engine (repairable but I don't feel like wasting the time/money on a 10+ year old machine) . I ended up buying an obs...

Re: Wapsaholics anonymous rides again...

OPUS!

Opus, mate - let's talk about grit. Diamond grit, specifically.

What kind of grit ranges are you getting on average? I need a kilo or so of 1000-grit - my last supplier has dried up on me and going back to carborundum is just not on for the tumbler and hand fitting.

Talk to me, mate....

Re: Red Rover Comments Section:

Seems as if an engine refit could benefit from operating-room protocols. One needs a medical assistant (akin to a circulating nurse) to keep track of the location and use of every single surgical sponge rag and clamp. Actually, it's usually not an issue if one has any discipline at all. As I have s...
