    Florida Destruction

    I was just scrolling through Florida pics. And its typical media pics. Only the worst destruction when the house across the street is untouched. If you are in Florida or anywhere else in the path, I hope the best for you. We lived in Charleston and experienced Hugo. Don't want to do that again...

    Select brand Lathe ID information help

    Picked up a lathe cheap enough to be interesting a couple of weeks back. Almost nothing that I can find on the internet about it. I learned that it is supposed to be a Taiwanese copy of a South Bend Model 9. It has a short bed on it. It appears to have lots of gear reduction selection. They were...

    Fuel preservative choices

    What are your opinions and experiences with fuel additives. I have been using Star Tron in all my gas applications for a long time now.

    1936 Chevrolet assembly line film

    If you haven't seen assembly line footage this is well worth watching. My grandfather had an Auto Service Garage in the 40's - 50's that my father grew up working in.

    USPS at its finest again...

    Bought a book on March 17th and it appears to have traveled everywhere but to my house. Why would it leave KY and travel to PA before coming to SC? Kind of out of the way. It has been in Greenville distribution center for the last 3 days. I could drive there to get it and be back home in an...

    Craftsman 6 inch Lathe

    I have been aware of this little lathe for several years. The owner had a sentimental attachment to it and wouldn't part with it. He was a friend of my buddy Bruce with the Blazer. Well he passed this summer and Bruce knew I liked it so one day he showed up at my house with it. I couldn't...
