    Default In my spare time

    Time challenged Santa dropped this off in my guest bedroom yesterday. Having 2 Desktops separated by 350 miles didn't work out quality of work wise.
    Now just to bring it up to spec and install Z-upgrade, bring it down to wheelchair height for 2 identical machines...in my spare time while keeping up production and training an apprentice.
    T*t
    Another 50 ' of compressor hose and move the Fein.. no prob
    Don't know whether to do Z-upgrade off the extrusions for tramming or redo my spoilboard and then Z-upgrade.
    Be interesting if I can squeeze FeinII and DD and computer and UPS into the MakerCrate in a usable fashion.
    Need to soundproof a little so Crate doesn't boom, not enough of my Fosgate stuff left to do again.
    Toss up to get a 64 bit computer for my proto machine and give the 32 to the production unit.
    B and Moaning about having two excellent machines in the house
    Typical for me

    Scott,

    Sounds like a good and a bad thing, I never gave much thought to a desktop but looks like it could be fun to play with.

    I'll be glad to help you out with your overcrowded issues.
    I'll even pay for crating and shipping.

    G. Why don't you pay a visit and I'll make sure to machine Aluminum,Brass, and Fiberglass the day before for my very first time
    (actually no bed in G BR since I moved GG Gram's pineapple four poster into corner near greenhouse so I can watch stars, guests stay in M BR or on one of the 3 leather LaZboy couches)
    Dave, Appreciate the kind offer, but going to put them in the shop together with some soft lighting,mood music, and a bottle of bubbly.......
    You can have the pick of the litter
