ATM, its a bit cold here to go putzing around although I might get some 
free time later this afternoon to go install this toy ups. I have to 
start by figuring out where I hang it on the overhead frame thats also 
holding a 4000 lumen led light over an 11x54 CNC'd lathe.

I am also the caretaker for my bride of 30 years who is in the later 
stages of COPD. So I can't leave her unattended for too long. One of the 
advantages of outliving all ones enemies. ;-)

I've got another project going that will take some steel cutting and 
welding, outside work IOW, to fix a hoist over a milling machine, to 
pick up an 85kg machining accessory and place it on (or off) the mills 

But todays project is to finish up the laundry.

People keep telling me I should act my age (85). I refuse. But it might 
take me a little longer than it did 60 years ago.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
