Re: MTF's Machine of the Month for January 2017

Congratulations!! It is one very impressive implement that I'm sure took some real ingenuity and design to build.

Thanks for being a member and posting here.

Congrats Mark! I enjoy seeing and following your work as well as chatting with you in Don's thread. I think all of us wished you lived a little closer to teach us some of your ways!

Re: MTF's Machine of the Month for January 2017

Congratulations,and well deserved !..

There isn't much in life more satisfying than building something from scratch (or recycled parts off something else!)--and assembling it all,after "designing" it in your mind,and having it actually work ,and work better than expected,without too many setbacks or start-overs..

I think I've "almost" experienced that feeling a few times...

I'm always in awe of others who can build things with no blueprints and have them turn out well--it is a gift only few of us have,and your example is just one of those ..

Re: MTF's Machine of the Month for January 2017

Just got a registered letter from Portuguese customs up in Lisbon; I have to submit the sales invoice for my tee shirt so they can asses the customs duty!

I've sent them a link to this website instead. Let's hope they'll let it pass.

Re: MTF's Machine of the Month for January 2017

Unreal! It's probably already cost them more for processing and data entry time to send the letter then the shirt would have been worth if you bought it.
