Re: shop organizing

Both machines work well. I find it is usually not worth the effort to sharpen bits 1/8" or less. I told them at work that anything less than 3/8 was an absolute waste of time and that was iffy. If they were going to waste time then do it on the ones big enough that cost enough to have some merit. I...

Re: Covd Vaccine Shot One Done

Moderna says their vaccine works in the new variants, but also are working on booster to target it and future variants. Messenger RNA is the biggest thing since vaccines came to be as far as vastly faster shift (and the base is safe the variant is safe) That could be good except for two things 1)the...

Re: shop organizing

I have a Drill Doctor. Easy and quick to use and does a decent job. They bought one at work and had me test it. Yes it works but at least the model we had (probably 10 years ago) took some technique and understanding. They thought you just put it in and any of their non tech hires (few to be found ...

Re: DNEPR 650 - PM 302 Flyweight Mystery

Do they all rotate the same direction or were there different directions?

maybe a dumb question but if wrong rotation direction then no advance.

Yea, I remember the days of all that stuff- glad they are gone.

Re: shop organizing

Couldn't stand too long as my legs were hurting pretty good. My back starts to ache, not so much hurt but seriously bothersome. I can take the pills but one of them is Hydrocodine and the doc is death on that (the fact I was on 8 a day of double dose one before the operation and had no problem gett...

Re: shop organizing

I got a 72 inch Husky roller tool storage unit to help solve my problems. I quit work and had two tool sets. Still sorting but I have drawers for the commonly used one and space to just stuff things in while I work through it. The Knack came home from work with me and is not my powder magazine on on...

Re: steep ascents and descents

Colorado differs from Alaska in that the passes are high to start with (5000 feet or more at the base) and they are long. That is a tough slog, my uphill runs might be 2 or 3 minutes and then its over to a flat or downhill and the temps are a lot less. We had friend visit from Colorado and they fina...

Re: New owner 2021 Gear up

As somebody who grew up in AZ, I always liked the Prescott area. If you get the chance, ride the Senator Hwy between Prescott, Crown King, and Bumble Bee.
I spent a winter down in Arizona back in 73, it was great (once you got out of Phoenix!)

Re: 2020 Gear-up up-grades and side-grades

So went to the shock-factory website and ordered from there, ordered Wed, shipped Fri, and at my work before 9am monday, amazing since they shipped from France. 1500CDN all in. Wow, times do change sometimes. Probably 15 years ago, our hanger door started to shuck bearing bits (vertical cable lift ...

Re: 2020 Gear-up up-grades and side-grades

I agree with Berry on this one %10000 I have the 2/3 and its all I know. Worst sore butt after a few hours since the R80GS plywood seat (well it did have vinyl over it!) I don't get it, its a nice seat and decently cushioned. But I won't know unless I buy a bench and see if being able to move around...

Re: Choosing routes for Urals

I do prefer the back roads also but often pull off to permit passing. My ops were slower to start with and the two lane in Washington State I pulled off, but seeing a spot ahead and having time to signal, slow down and off without someone over running me was problematical. Alaska is worse as its al...

Re: Covd Vaccine Shot One Done

Well, I wouldn't take a shot that hasn't been tested for long term side effects at least for two years anyway. If I am tracking this right, the vaccine issues are very near term. If none, they no long term ones. Polio is different but not as a result of the vaccine. Something to do with the attenua...
