I drove from London to Scotland and back south of London over 6 days and had no problems (well, except for pulling out in front of a semi at one of the few rural intersections I found with no roundabout... and almost dying in a roundabout going to see Stonehenge which I never got to see....but I digress...) until I came home. Was home about a week and caught myself driving up the wrong side of main street in our hometown. Lucky for me, it's population is about 60 with an average age of 103 so we survived...

    Yes. What started out as a personal love for coffee and espresso, has now gotten out of control. I've seen your artwork. You know what I'm talking about.

    For harnessing I just drop a ball and see how high in bounce.

    My original plan included another piece on the back of the shank toward the bottom, and plates on either side. Also some sort of sharpened cutter bit on the front edge.

    The good thing is, this is a project for my own use, not for a customer. I will enjoy fixing and upgrading it, and hopefully improve my welding skills as well.



    Thanks for the offer. I'll try to see if I can make this strong enough to hold up to my abuse

    Trade you a few degrees.........was in the low 40's here, with 20-30mph winds. I'll even give ya a discount

    A guy I used to like, WyoRoy, although I knew him by his real name.............used to hate Oklahoma. Said the worst Winter he ever spent was up near Ponca City, working on a generating plant. And he came from Kansas, and later Wyoming. Said the Winters there were child,s play compared to cold humid Winters here. Humidity will kill ya when it's hot, and bury ya when it's cold.

    I reckon if we swapped a few degrees we'd both be happy. Great idea, let's do it.

    PFFT! Two towns away they do that in summer.

    Our Yetis are a whole lot bigger.

    Vacation home owners close to me have described Bigfoot tracks as 30" long. I confess, they have melted before I actually see them.


    We once had a series of Bigfoot sightings 40 miles away. If you look at a map of Vermont, the hook is the epicenter of animals that don't exist. One of those National TV shows once did a series of shows there.

    Bigfoot (it turns out) responds to goofy women (BIG glasses) with backpack selfie mounts, enlisting someone to bang a tree with a stick. The responding bangs on something, (maybe a tree), proves the presence of Bigfoot.

    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    Re: Show us what you welded today

    No one has ever proved big fit, yeti, swamp ape, snow man etc etc exist to date. It is probably an inter dimensional time traveling skin walker and perhaps come and go as they please. Could even be shape shifters that have been seen in a Texas as huge bird man etc. There are way too many urban legends and crazy myths of the ever elusive big foot.
    Lincoln, ESAB, Thermal Dynamics, Victor, Miller, Dewalt, Makita, Kalamzoo. Hand tools, power tools, welding and cutting tools.

    Bigfoot lives on West coast and moves around from Canada to California.

    Bigfoot size would be great for construction work. Would not need a forklift just Bigfoot.
