Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Well, it looks like I'm not getting the plasma cutter.


The add.









Today they e-mailed the bad news.





No explanation given & I never asked for a refund.

That was Amazon, correct? I got an unasked for refund this week also. it was for a trailer hitch after I had been given a delivery date of Monday. The trailer hitch was a replacement for one I returned due to it being so bent that I could not install it. The reason they issued the refund (on Tuesday, BTW)? The replacement was, "so damaged it could not be delivered".

My "honey-do list" is so long it has chapters.

I guess they actually did you a favor if it can be bent beyond deliverability!!
That's classic!



I was hoping for at least a dented plasma cutter that could be used as a portable or for parts.
Oh well, it was worth a try and I couldn't pass a deal like it would have been.
I wonder how long it took the proprietor to recover from the shock of how to fulfill the order.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

I guess they are too fancy for me, I wanted to see the results of the work they were doing!!
LOL!!!


Go ahead, Joe you can get one.
Any of them.


I'm glad that I followed up and went to YouTube to see what they would recommend I watch next.


It led to yet another adventure of "This Old Tony".

So if you can't get or your wife won't let you have one of those,

you could simply do as that old Tony did and have one of these.

OK, here is one for you sifi guys. If you follow the link or just watch the video below right now, you will be time traveling and watching the first step on the moon, before it happens since it will be the day before the 21st, of July,1969.





I still like watching that, after that 50 years ago we got on the bikes and went for a ride. Every now and then we would stop and point at the moon and say their walking around up there!! What a great feeling it was.

I would except I'm so poor, I can't even pay attention!

Yup. I enjoyed it.

That video of the CNC router was riveting! I had to watch the whole thing.

The next few days are going to be nice and cool (low 80's) so we are going to pull the camper to a local COE park and spend some quiet time relaxing, kayaking and fishing. We made reservations almost a month ago and got incredibly lucky with the weather.

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Cool! It sounds like a nice get away weekend.
Too bad, with the cooler weather you won't get a chance to try out the new air cond. Oh well maybe the next trip.



Hope it's all "good fun" as my cousin in Hawaii used to say.


Yeah, That Old Tony does some neat things in his shop.
He's always coming up with new ways to cut steel.
Karate chops and pruning shears amongst them. LOL!!

Re: My latest Project - Part Two

Thanks Don!

What Don is talking about is I recently had another article published on the Sears ST/10X tractors in the Lawn & Garden Tractor Magazine. It was a 4 page article and was the 1st Sears article to be published. They have now asked me to do a series on Sears tractor basics for them, so I am starting to pick away at that. I also start a new job Monday as a CAD designer at a small sheet metal company. It is not what I planned, but it seemed like a nice little company and it can add to some of my experience. I will be the 11th employee currently there and it has been in business for 111 years (they have pictures of the company name painted on model T's driving to jobs). Other than that I have not been up to a lot. I still pop in here at least once a day, just haven't had much to add

Hope everyone is well!

Mikey.

Actually, it's getting some workout. If you put a dark colored box in the sun, it will get warm. We've been having temps in the high 50's at night, but it is getting into the low to mid 80's during the days. We keep the camper about 73.

Hope it's all "good fun" as my cousin in Hawaii used to say.

As always, great job Mikey! Congrats!

It is absolutely beautiful here! If I can figure out how to get pics from my phone to my computer without WiFi, I'll post some.
