    A little off topic but a little on. I found an app called engine rpm at the app store if y’all are interested. Be good for tuning.

    If I’d get one made the liability would probably be on me, if it’s OEM then it’s on them. Or so I hope.

    Kyle, the ones we use are euro. Haven’t found any imperial size or “twist” to fit.

    Safe, compact and very trustworthy. Every gang box should have one. The only drawback I’ve seen with the brands I’ve used is the cable is proprietary, not an off the shelf idem. For that reason I suggest using the winch cable on straight pulls only and any other cable for redirects.

    Maybe I can help with your aim. It seems like the dnc is going all in. First they laid out the socialism card with Cortez and Beto. Next the muh Russia and muh prnstar cards. Then the misogyny, rape, sexism (war on women) card against Kavanaugh. Now it is the nationalism/racism card with the illegal immigrant invading hord (migrant caravan my ass) What's next for october? Think of the children? Global warming? Gun control? Might be time for the Dems to play another MK Ultra guinea pig/school shooter. It seems the dnc is pulling it's old bluffs and Trump is sitting on a royal flush by calling them out.

    He said he was going to get a replica made of it. No way you could talk him into killing a fish like that. This is the third largest fish caught on the Chic river this year.

    Just one template Pete. Stig. What I did was glue up a 3/8” thick board of Red Oak over a 3/8” thick board of Honduran Mahogany with the grain of each running perpendicular to each other. That made the blank the project was cut from. The staves are cut from black walnut. I wanted something different. The contrasting colors of the wood turned out ok, I think.
