Admin is just a title. I'm helping Rob out with the site. So far that consists of deleting some spam and approving a comment.
Elbow engine was never done more than I showed you. I have about 7 engines/projects going (you know how that goes!), and I have been slowly working on finishing things up. I finally made a ball turner (Steve Bedair's design), and have nearly completed a "jingle bell" engine as well. I also have a highly modified version of the HMEM EZ that I'm working on. I have a screwless vise that needs some attention before I get much further.
In the meantime, I tore down and readjusted the lathe carriage, got a new mill (Grizzly mini mill), and cleaned up the shop considerably. Lots of reorganization and eliminating clutter. I still have to do some wiring for more outlets, but it's looking more like a real shop, and less like a collection of junk.
Probably the biggest improvement was getting some anti-fatigue mats for the floor.
Hey, welcome old man.
Got the new mill in place, and the shop all cleaned up. When you gonna swing by for a visit?
Thanks for the welcome. An Admin huh? Wow.
Probably won't happen till after the holidays. Wifes got me redoing the laundry room and the the walk-in-closet. Plus the basement is a mess. More so than when you were here last. A lot more stuff has followed me home since then.
Ever get that elbow engine finished?

Well after you e-mailed me I decided to register here. Come to find out I had done that 1 year and 3 months ago.
What took me so long to get back on? Probaly a couple of computer upgrades and a senoir mind. I even had you in my favorites folder. I guess one reason could be that I got involved somewhat with MadModder and becoming a modorater, plus I'm a bit unfamilar with this web design. Going to take me a while to get used to this place. Also I'm not one to register with machinist forum. I usally lurk for a while before deciding to join.
I'll be showing up occasionaly to see what going on. Plus I better find my calculator so I can post messages.
