Ain't that a beaut!
I got a postcard in the mail from Ron Covell. He's going to be having a metal working workshop in May but it's just a bit too far for me to attend. If I did both Saturday and Sunday, I'd probably have to spend two nights in a hotel or at least get up real early on Saturday morning. That's a bit much right now. Surly and I did his aluminum workshop a few years back and it was time well spent. Workshops are $190/day and you get your money's worth in skill development and inspiration. He also sells round over dies for bead rollers. I'd like to get a couple of different sizes. The dies cost $80/set and bushings to fit the Harbor Freight bead roller like mine are $20.00. You'd be hard pressed to make them for that money. I don't really have any need for them right now but I have in the past. If I ever get going on some of the things I've got planned, they'd be nice to have,
I did get the ram for my press brake cut off the other day at work. I should be able to get it all welded up this weekend. Might be warm enough to get a little paint on it Monday. Going to work on the clamps for the boat project the next few days as well.
Time to get back after it.
