    FWIW, (call me crazy, it's okay), the LANG in my Speedio has been in there 2.5 years. Countless cycles.
    I don't "ramp" shit. I whack it straight to 11k rpm, and run around @ 390ipm. With a plain...

    He wanted to be in shouting distance when the bomb went off. It was a good show. Not a terrible crash. But, it did crash.

    All so true! I have worked in shops where the programmer (CAM jockey) would not be capable of setting up, and running his own program.
    Because he wouldn't know how! I've never understood how...

    Del, did you know a guy named Tom Paylen? A guy I know that was as serious a fisherman as anybody in AZ. Constantly fishing tourneys.
    He moved out of state about two years ago. I met him the 2nd day...

    This is why I refuse to ride on the street. I will be going way to fast to react when the moron gets in my way.
    I have too much experience/evidence of this already. Imagine trying to crash on...

    My therapy is tinkering. At any given time I have many "manly" projects to tend to.
    Two trucks, a muscle-car, dirt-bike, UTV, car and shop audio, the shop itself (I love working on shop...

    My guy Joe just traded his boat for a Harley, LOL. Nice looking bike too.
    Not my thing either. But, he definitely traded up! Boats are dumb. I will never understand the fun of boating? :confused:...

    I figured (and, was hoping for you) that that was the story. That is the "best case" scenario, with the best chance of success. Good luck with your decision.

    That was the biggest concern I took away from the OP. And, I feel needs a little more elaboration.
    "New ownership" can spell doom. Depending on the dynamics of the situation.

    As wrong as it sounds! I tend to agree. Would you rather get on the freeway with a stoner, or a drunk, at the wheel?
    Yet, any run of the mill drunk can get and hold down a job. But, the stoner (who...

    Being a guy that doesn't like a lot of stuff on my feet, I can relate. When I kneel on one? Stand back! Somebody is gonna get hurt!
    The wife is even worse than me! :fight:

    Last few (maybe several now?) years I have been noticing my allergies (which I never had until about 40) have been pretty bad when everything is full bloom.

    Hard to make a living scrapping these days. I see the numbers and think "shit, I was getting more than that in '94!"
    Barely covers the fuel to get it to the scale.

    Years ago, I was a site utilities company (think big pipes in the ground) equipment tech (glorified mechanic) for a few years.
    One day the lead guy bailed, no warning. They tried to put me in his...

    It is a struggle for me. For two reasons. One, I am wired very weird. If somebody is working for me? I can not, NOT work while they are working.
    Meaning, if they are in the shop, I am in the shop,...

    Getting back on topic, it seems I have finally stumbled on a good one with the quiet kid.
    He is not perfect. He is a little rough. When he closes the doors on the mills, he CLOSES the doors, LOL....
