SELF INTRODUCTION: I was on the last board as bonustoolkit. I have changed that to my given name.
I started a project build there " File and Fit." I paln to continue that when I go back home in Dec. 2011. I first joined the board when Gary W had it in the year 2005. That was the time I really gained an interest in building chops. I have a long way to go, compared to some here.

Thanx, guys.

Just wait 'till the driveline comes together. I'll have lots of simple questions, but I'm buildin' that open chain primary. I'll post that soon and will need help on some issues.

Looks can be decieving, Jeff. I have an idea for a quard that doesn't hide the chain...only covers the pinch points. I'll post what I got tonight.

Well, this current ice storm is kicking my ass. Had to climb on the roof yesterday to drain the water trapped under the ice. When I climbed down to get the claw hammer, the wind blew the ladder over. Caution is starting to be important to me, particularly now that I'm working in a foundry.

Yona, advise me. Should I hold off on the primary with caution and move on to the front end, or, bite-the-bullet and start cutting up my clutch pack?

I'm goona start something this spring. Now that I'm employed again, I've got the cash flow to finish it.

I always try to get the top things off my mind first, so that fretting with them, does not cloud my judgment.... prep, mock up, and fit, if it looks good , go for it! You will know when it is right !
