  1. scarebird brake conversion

    Me too. Combination of many ailments non of which are any fun. Much more fun to run a drill press than to clean up **** that missed the targeted crapper. Getting old is no fun. George Carlin nailed it in his reverse aging skit. Better to go out as a giant orgasm.
  2. scarebird brake conversion

    Drilling and tapping was a breeze. I used my large drill press and a hand tap. A few months ago I had a good friend in need of a drill press so I gave my big drill press to him as I can no longer use it. Then last month my son was here and had a use for my small drill press so I sent it home with him. Gives me a good feeling knowing that my tools will go to folks who will use them.
  3. Who Is Actually Driving Their Vintage Mopars?

    How do you know what size you need? You might find it best to let the machine shop source the the requirements to meet there machine work. Most shops charge a fair price but you get the correct size you need.

  19. light bulb sockets

    Volts times amps equals watts and watts are consumption. So do the math. 6 volt wire gauge is twice that of 12 volt wire gauge. Do the math.

  21. Age Demographics Please Take The Poll...
