    I realize I'll have to improvise on the day. I just don't want a repeat of my milling machine. The guy who was supposed to help me stopped answering...

    I have a bunch of the old forged-slab type of screwdrivers that I really like. I'd like to get Phillips ones but can't find any. Do they exist?

    The one I mentioned with the Model B engine went for 8900 which I thought was reasonable. It was driveable but needed side and rear glass and had no...
