I apologize, I didn't see your message until today (I don't send many pm's and don't look at the notification area). I remember asking you some questions about your shaper and I certainly don't want to seem rude by not answering. I live in the Everett area and it is on the way to Anacortes. I'm actually about 7-8 miles east of the interstate.
Unfortunately, there hasn't been much progress on the shaper for several months -- when the sun shines in Everett, you have to work outside. I'm still trying to finish up a project on the house before I move back inside.
Let me know when you come this way again. It will give me an excuse to focus on the shaper.
