    Exactly. Why not ask George directly, before ever posting? Especially on a weekend.

      I'm on a lunch break from trying to stuff a gas engine into an old kids electric gocart. A bit of welding, a bit of wrenching, a little machining, and a great kids project. I might post about it, or I might ask for dinner suggestions. Coin flip.

      I mean all that in the best "taking the piss" way possible. Go build stuff, take pictures, post. ๐Ÿ‘
      If I pre-buy your book will you sign it? That was in-fact a nice read JR

        I get it. But I said NO MONEY!. Barter is that enaine. No money..

          I think that's supposed to be inane. So close to insane.

            Bartering is good if you don't want to spend money... Sometimes what you have can be worth more than the "cash value" too if someone really needs or wants it. It's easier for most to let go of something in trade than to unclench fingers from cash... ๐Ÿ˜

            Plus, you usually get to remove something that's lying around not being used, for something that will be. Something I'm sure MANY of us are familiar with.

              Makes me curious why George hasn't noticed this thread and responded after several days. Hope all is OK with him.

                All is good here. Was just going to wait until JR PM'd me but will toss out my opinion on the matter now. I don't care.

                As long as things don't get carried away and I don't receive a ton of emails and PMs I'm fine with it.

                  Okay, that settles that.

                  Now, to avoid generating excess PM's to George, we probably need some sort of a base exchange rate. How about chickens? How many chickens for each of:

                  HF mini lathe
                  HF mini mill
                  Die filer, non-working, incomplete
                  Die filer, working
                  Power hacksaw
                  Horizontal shaper
                  Bridgeport in fair condition

                    When I get home, I'll be cleaning up shop maybe. This could get interesting

                      Large tub of hex/torx wrenches, mostly Whia and Bondhus.

                      Not really fond of chickens (they tear up the garden too much), but will consider Indian Runner ducks.

                      Oh, whether chickens or ducks, only interested in the live variety.

                          Especially given the issues involved in transport of live poultry.

                            AWS what do you need other than live birds? I'm in NJ, but willing to ship a trade item(s).

                                And this is where bartering devolves into money, as trade items are a royal pain.

                                Hence: money

                                Reggie- I every now and again I put the tub up on Philly CL. Not even sure whatโ€™s in the bucket at this point, as not looked at it in a decade and was mostly making a joke.

                                Slippery slope, George.
