    Made a garage stool for the Father in law....

    Since I work in a steel mill I found these parts in a scrap steel pile waiting to be melted. The base is a flywheel with a cam shaft as the post. The seat is a steel tractor seat and there are two brake rotors and two connecting rods with a 3/4" wrench for the foot rest. Strange things come...

    Another dumba$$ comment heard!

    Was driving home from the HRPT and was in Bloomington IL. We pulled in to eat at KFC and a guy in a truck pull in behind in the parking lot and said his brother own #551! So I assume he means a GNX not a GN so I told him they only made 547 GNX's. He said his brother owns #551 GN. I just...
