I have not started a journal at this point. Kind of wanted to get to know some of you guys without looking like I was trying to just find a place to,toot my horn.

I have followed deads, Brian's, and Dan Two Lakes posts particularly. I like interior work a lot too. (Get to keep my finger nails clean.)

I am going to post a picture of my English Wheel. A neighbor and friend who was a machinist deserves the credit for it. We made it in 1991. That was before there were many around. We didn't know how strong it needed to be so we really over did it. This thing has a 44 inch throat which means in theory it could handle an 88 inch panel. Not going to happen . It is ugly but does the job. You may notice the added pieces. I made a press I could make 1 inch ribs in a 57 olds trunk panel to duplicate the factory.
