No wonder you didnt answer the phone,,,,,, working to hard to hear it.

Well......probably just didnt wanna talk to me. LMAO

I flaked out on any extra work on my rig today,,,,,107 and climbing in the driveway.
I get credit at the end of the year for the extra saterdays I work, so I grabbed 5 bids and two jobs that need a meet with locators and off I went.

Left at 10 after the door gasket and got back at 3. Two more to look at 60 miles away, gonna take the wife along and take her out to dinner on the way back. Gotta do the butt kissing thing, ya know.

Tomorrow shall be a rack building kinda day and maybe even fire it up.
Gonna see what the neighbors think about me cutting and grinding at 7 tomorrow morning. HEHEHEHE......would I do that???? YUP sure would.

Tom you need to learn more how not worry about things that are not important...like work

And focus more on things that are important.....like smoker building and bbq...

that retirement thing is overrated....


If you can't fix it by sheer force or cursing......then it can't be fixed.....

Tom - I completely sympathize. I've spent the last 2 weekends throwing crap out of my "office" that has accumulated over the last 9 years. So much crap... so little time.

It will work fine if you use a frame made of tubing. I am using 1-1/2 by 14ga.
BTW, I have 2 door latch kits for ya!

Latches! - Quooole!
Just bring with you to KC and settle up there?

14 gauge tubing or channel?
I'm not using a frame under my stainless - gonna try a full brake design wrapped into a box to keep it light - my machinist guy thinks it will work fine cause he just bent some sterilized cabinets for the hospital the same way ... soooo ... fingers crossed... :D
