    I know enacting change around here takes an act of congress, but wouldn't it make sense to just ad a dealer for sale section and let them spam the hell out of it? Maybe charge $5 an ad like...

    I have a bunch of old NOS glow in the dark exit stickers from the Navy. They're pretty bright. Probably radium. It would have to be pretty smokey to miss one in the dark.

    I have owned a fair bit of machinery, but never a 10EE. A 10EE that is all debugged and looks good with a DRO and basic tooling is worth more to sell than to make parts on IMO.

    It's not an opinion. I know they are different people. Different names, different lives, separate individuals. In a factual kind of way, not the opinion kind of way.

    The big bearings have an RPM rating in the thousands of RPM. I'd imagine they'd have a shorter lifespan turning faster, but the difference isn't huge. Pickups have 31-35" tires for the most part....
