    He's just lifting the shipping container off. No problem. I made an extension for my cherry picker for similar light duty lifting.

    Smart phone.... I originally got one so I could test remote video access for customers running DVRs on their network. Before that a phone was for talking to people. Now I have a half dozen specialty calculators on my smart phone along with video surveillance aps, and of course as JRouche pointed out, a regular calculator.

    The pinion and big cam bushings just wonít budge so Iím boring them out. The other 3 were in there with a .0025 interference fit. They donít put in the no-spin pins anymore so I guess they fit things tighter at the factory. I was afraid Iíd damage something with those two being so stubborn. Then Iím trimming the bottom and rear profile to match an EMD ribbed cover.
