60 degrees on the Yukon today, I don't envy you down there in that oppressive weather!

Kansas is also in drought...

99 and 100 for the next couple of days.  I start work early in the morning and retreat to cooler space mid day.  The heat is good for accelerating the curing of paint.  I am trying to take advantage of that.

Thanks for the offers.  I'll keep you posted on the progress.

I wanted to paint the edge of the flywheels.  Then possibly a pinstripe.  I was puzzling how to make a clean accurate mask.  I woke up at 5AM with this idea.  Worked out perfect.

The wheels roll on the rim and there is a razor blade that cuts the tape.  Different adjustments for inner and outer cut.

Back together and running.  So far all is checking out OK.  Still much to do. 

Looks like I'll make it to Oblong!  Butch already on the road.

I have been so rushed to get things together that I have not taken any.  First time all together on the trailer this afternoon!  Pictures coming soon.  Promise.

Butch has been here all day helping and we have had a wonderful time.  James is joining us tomorrow morning and we're all heading to Oblong.

Butch came over Thursday and brought his two beautiful Bamfords.  I cannot thank him enough for his help in rigging and getting everything ready for the show.  We had a good time and Paula prepared a wonderful meal for us at the end of the day.  James was here at 6AM and we were off to Oblong.

Thank you Butch and James.  Doug, We missed you.

Simply beautiful Bob! That can only be called art.  Love the slow puffing sound of the big horizontal!
