    I'm pulling for you, Weston. And yes, as time and circumstances interfere with life, we all have to slow down.

    As usual. Get rid of the "people" and the environment would be a lot cleaner.

    Around here every municipality has its own waste company and they all do things somewhat differently. In my town we...

    Paul, he has a metric leadscrew. The threading dials I've seen pics of are more complicated - I seem to remember one recently that had three different gears.

    So did they upgrade or not? I don't see any difference, unlike a few years ago when they upgraded and everything fell apart.

    Ahem. Damn right people don't trust PG&E. No, the poor record keeping didn't cause the weld to fail. But the *fact* that PG&E falsified inspection records led to them (the corporation, not the...

    Ummm, it's a South Bend copy. Do we know if it has a metric or Imperial lead screw? If it's Imperial, he can't use the thread dial anyway assuming his threading will be metric.

    Dan, you've been around here long enough to remember the 1999-2000 PG&E power outages - rolling blackouts everywhere. I vividly remember being trapped in an elevator in Walnut Creek (office building)...

    Nah, your first post wasn't a "heavy mistake", just a bit odd. I bet 99% of the members who read it kinda shrugged and moved on.

    I've used automotive clearcoat on a number of bikes and a couple of cars. It's bulletproof, but not (as mentioned) where the subject flexes.

    That's why PPG and other auto paint dealers offer a...

    Simple. Just tell him you can't wait any longer, and he should give you the parts *and* the upfront money so you can find someone else.
