    Something to keep in mind. Too early to tell for me, but sounds good.

    No problem if you are working Mike; figure out when you need help with your new shop and I'll load my truck up and we can come by you to help out if you like.

    --
    Had to look up where you were going that weekend... wasn't familiar with FOTA. Looks like a good time. Will you be selling any welded goodies or just walking around enjoying yourself?
    --
    CEP> You have no idea how I sooooooooo wished we didn't live in Hellinois and lived out your way so you could come join us!!! There are more good people than not who live out this way though.... I think we're sorta "stuck" for the time being.
    --
    Gamble> You are so right. Poor poor poor BD1.... his "assistant' for the day... that would be me.... totally botched the get-together date. It is on a Sunday but it's not on the 26th.... it's on Sept 25th. Thank you so much for catching my boo boo!!! I'll ask someone to correct that for us right away since I was outside weeding and missed my opportunity to edit the post.
    --
    I'm not the brightest crayon in the box regarding welding machines. Please contact BD1 about machines. I've never tried a plasma machine. You don't by any chance ever have any of those do you? Don't even know if they're portable or not so please ignore me if they're the size of a VW.
    --
    M J D> Sure hoping you'll be able to join us!!! And... of course I'd ride along with BD1 to help with your new shop too.
    --
    N2 Welding> Totally understand. I see you're from California.... it would be a hike out our way.... that's for sure!!!

    Thanks for the offer. Should be done by then. The Sunday thing would work better. Keep us posted as the time gets closer.

    Lots of walking, buying, eating deliciously terrible food.

    Plus the Homeowner's Association annual meeting deliberately coincides. A quorum is needed to authorize the snow plowing contract for the road. Then the bbq!

    '' Should be done by then '' WHAT ??? You'll never be done. Maybe reword to say '' USABLE ''

    There will ALWAYS be more stuff to do.

    Hey, if you would like a hand let me know. I'll toss '' MY ASSISTANT '' in the back of the truck and will come up . Ok, I guess upfront would be safer.

    Upfront would be best. Wisconsin does have a seatbelt law. As far as usable, being able to walk around in it was a huge step.

    mike837go> "Aim Better" Almost missed that slipped in the way you did. Too funny. My aim is getting much better with each and every session of classes I take.
    --
    "deliciously terrible food">>>? Were it not for the little stumbling block that a quorum is needed to authorize a snow plowing contract.... I'd say come on down by us instead and eat well. I'm sure my husband will make some beer bread to send with me or maybe cheese bread. Who knows... he might even toss in a pie depending on what fruit is in season.

    I edited the date and stickied the thread as well as moving it to the Announcements section. Should be a good time for all.

    '' Don't you be talking about me behind my back!!! ''

    I would never say anything behind your back that I wouldn't say face to face..................... as long as there was a brick wall between us.

    Oh, and yes you can even sit in the front seat !!!!!

    DSW> Thanks for editing the date in the title and changing it to 25.... could you please go back and edit the date in the body of the very first post where I repeated the same screw up when typing this, "BD1, and his assistant (me), will be hosting a "Weldorama" on Sept. 26, 2016"?
    --
    Hey!!! You forgot to mention you were coming. Really glad you are!!! I do think it's going to be a good time for all!!!
    --
    BD1> I dunno if I want to sit in the front seat of that HUGE truck again no matter how "comfy" it is. I think the bed of the PU might actually be safer or you could always duct tape me to the hood being as how I keep forgetting how high up the truck is and falling out the door.

    Spoil sport! I was thinking about saying that I'd heard a rumor that a "special guest" was planing to make an appearance. I just hadn't come up with good wording yet before I went and started cooking dinner.

    Yeah as of right now I plan to hit the SOFA Quad States blacksmithing event in Troy Ohio Friday and Saturday, then continue out to see all of you. General plan is for me to bring out my forge as I know several people are interested in some of the stuff I do with that.

    BD1, I told EQ I can bring my Hypertherm plasma out with me if need be. Do you have a decent sized compressor we can use at the same time as a 230v 50 amp plasma? The compressor I keep on the truck is too small to supply air for more than a very brief period of time. With the forge in the truck, the wheel barrow compressor isn't really practical to bring along.

    Well this is sounding like fun and if DSW can make from Philly I ought to be able to make it from southwest lower Michigan.
    Now we just gotta get DynaSteve to pick up Zap in the corporate helicopter and buzz on over it will be a real wang dang doodle!

    Oh yes!!! Would loooove to "play" with a plasma cutter very much!!! Yay!!!
    --
    I'm going to bring some of the things I bought recently.... the little soldering furnace and soldering irons, the flip roller, the bead roller, as well as the few hand tools I bought to use with them making rabbit poop pans and such.
    --
    DSW> you are a "special" guest and even more so considering how far you'll be driving to get to us!!!
    --
    We have a compressor. Don't know if it's big enough but it's about the size of a large hot water heater. Have another neighbor who has a bigger compressor than ours so if BD1 doesn't have one.... I'm sure we can check around and see who has one big enough that will work for you so you don't have to haul one all the way to IL.
    --
    I think setting up a forge is an excellent idea!!!
    --
    vwguy3> You are not going to believe this but I stayed up almost 3 hours after my normal bedtime trying to find a thread where a member who only lived about 2.5 hours away from me had generously offered to let me haul my new/used Lincoln buzzbox over to his house so 7A749 could stop in and give it a once over since it hadn't been used in at least 20 years and had been stored for even longer. I wanted to drop the man a little PM with a link to this thread. I was so tired I gave up looking for him last night and lookie here.... you're posting you're going to come to the "wang dang doodle" and you're the member I was looking for!!! I know it's you because I remember your location as being the city of four flags which is a little north of South Bend!!! Thank you again for your offer and really glad to see you'll be coming!!!
    --
    I know 7A749 would like to come and... actually plans on coming but.... things change and unfortunately I think whether he'll be able to make it or not will end up being a wait and see deal. As far as zapster.... the month we ended up choosing for a get together is really bad for him and if I'm not mistaken... it'd take him about two days to get to us if he didn't have conflicts and who wants to spend 2 days in a car for a day of merry making only to turn around and drive two days back home? That's an awful lot of cross country driving to be doing by one's self even if one didn't have other things on their plate that month.

    Zap, just stay on Alert 5 if Steve comes out. You know what happened to him when he went to visit you last year. We may have to try and undelete him once more just in case he accidentally bans himself again.
