          Surprised you're not already on the way to pick it up.

            What would I do with this damn IV in my arm that goes to 1/2" of my heart, diesl stop, antibiotic stop, blood draw stop, h*ll I'd never get there! But I hope to get released by next week, onlt problem from sittlng 24/7 with my foot up it will take a bit to get my stamina back. Better than dying like my 1/2 brother did last Thursday. If I'd have waited 1/2 a day longer I would have beat him they say. I didn;t tell Tony but when he left I made it inside, put the foot up & collapsed LOL! If I die I'll be the easiest man on earth to ID, 9 soes 28 head stitched, scars all over & fugly to boot!

              My 10ee is less than a year newer and it has a serial number 4000 higher, they really were putting them out back then! (Monarchs are sequential, regardless of model)

                  I figured you did. Glad you made it back inside beforehand!

                    That's a monster for most of us. Not far from me, and would be fun to own but requires way more space than I have! I have come across several instances of this around here, there are a pretty limited number of people that can accommodate a machine that large among the hobbyist crowd. I'd suspect than most working shops that could make use of such a thing either already have one or can't be bothered with an older machine of unknown pedigree. Be a bit unfortunate to see it scrapped though.

                      I'd take if in a heartbeat if it wasn't worn out. Hope someone puts it to use besides the scapper.

                        Yea, it could not have been easier or smoother but I was beat. Hope I wasn't cranky, pain will do that.I'm usually a lot more fun, but I was happy the sun came out!

                          Having a pick line in the arm is no fun especially when your teaching welding, machining, etc. Had one when I was given MRSA by the hospital in Kearney, NE.

                          Get well soon.
