Wow! that looks much more useful than the 1936 9" South Bend Lathe that I just bought and refurbished.

Work will be limited again this year, I just can't manage to stay home, and when I am home I need to take care of things around the house that went wrong when I was gone.

How well I know your circumstance! The current work that I'm doing on my trailer was deferred for several years because the events of daily life prohibited me from taking on such a huge project. Now that I'm retired, I'm finally getting around to this and many other deferred projects.

My best to you Kip! You're an inspiration to all of us!

Steve

It's a great rally as I have been to every one, giving out small little tips on how to do metal working, riviting etc. I will not be able to make it this year do to my traveling. I also just found out that I have an inch and a half tear in my Lt shoulder rotater cuff and go under the knife 3 April, sling for 6 weeks and no weight for 3 months. I don't know how this will affect my Flight Engineering duties yet. For now going back to Abottsford BC Sunday for 3 weeks as the Herc is going through heavy check. I hate getting old

The only good thing about getting old is that it beats the alternative
Take good care of that shoulder and dont try to rush the rehab-ask me how I know We will miss you at the vintage resto academy

Awww that sucks, but maybe you'll be on medical leave and go to the resto rally for fun!! And those were no little tips and tricks..... Says grasshopper to the master....

Seriously, you rocked the last rally and will be missed, I'm still trying to go but the change in dates messed with my plans....

Kip,
I'm also sorry to hear about your shoulder. Although getting older does beat some of the alternatives, it still isn't for the faint of heart. Now that I'm almost 64, I realize in hindsight that I should have bought the extended warrenty (for me) back when I was eligable! Maybe I was never eligable!

All my best,

Steve
