Nah, it was f350ca-ed, which is better.
Charlie seems to be enjoying his photography, is he going back for more courses in the fall?

It looks great Greg, but I can't picture how it's used. What type of camera?

Well I don't have anything to add but these are pretty cool! I was looking at that camera thing and realized I might be able to make a pair of rearsets for my motorcycle (fancy streetbike name for footpegs lol).

This is a good thread because while most of us very productive, much of our accomplishments are overlooked because our family sees it all the time and become numb to it, or they just don't understand the effort that we put into it. You guys understand because you've been there.

On Sunday I started my annual purge of the shop by sorting the stock. I removed literally tons of stock, cleaned the area and replaced it in an orderly fashion, sorted by carbon steel, stainless, brass, aluminum and plastic. The pic below represents 10 hours of work, but it sure is nice to have completed and be able to easily find what I need. Next comes a toothbrush cleaning and maintenance of all the machinery and sorting through all the sheet and plate stock. I can't wait.

Hey Jerry,

I won the stock at an auction about 20 years ago. I was the only one bidding on it for what it was, everyone else was bidding on it for the scrap value. It turned out to be over three tons of aluminum, carbon and stainless steel, brass and plastic. I sold the polycarbonate bar stock for what I paid for the lot so the rest was essentially free and I've been using it ever since.

Sometimes you just get lucky.
