      I missed a great opportunity for a big project. An elderly logger was selling off some very worn out heavy equipment. One such item was a log skidder that was shop built on a ww2 tank recovery vehicle. Still ran. The recovery vehicle is essentially an m4 Sherman Tank without a turret. Note: i own a full fabrication and machine shop. Note: i build cannons and have a couple of military rifled barrels. At the time i was raising a 116 year old tug off the bottom. I think i might have missed a stern talking to by the local authorities...

          I find the key to these sort of activities is, don't ask permission.

          I just need one more tool,just one!

                A planer comes pretty close! Its mainly flat surfaces with only a few round bits.

                  Either tea or brewski, but a cigar is best. Or come by with a good story. We will take the wish for the deed and I’ll continue to have fun and post pics along the way. Here are two short videos on you tube on what i am up to lately.

                      Very Cool IBM vids were wonderful to watch, it does not surprise me to see a Native American honoring the "critterz" with some high tech machinery kudos to you.
