thanks to those that run this forum,,, for the spot for petteroids

i have a 2.8 hp single, a 20/2 and a 28/2

so far still in crates waiting for me to get time to put them to use.

plans are for the 2.8 to become a battery charger, and hot water maker

the 28/2 might be put into service to drive a 15 kwatt ST head but not sure yet

the 20/2 hasn't found a place of usefulness yet, but am sure i will find something

Well you know the old saying.  It is better to be called an a**hole than go to jail and become a manhole :)

There is plenty of room for all of Gods creatures... right next to the mashed potatoes...

Good one!!

My guys used to call me "Sergeant Asshole".  Guess it had something to do with being  the maintenance boss on a busy B-52 flightline.  I'm used to working on antiques!!

I used to work at this mine that had management issues. They ran the place like a camp where the rest of the plants in the division ran on more of an open shop concept...

As a lark I got some army surplus combat cloths and had reflective striping sewn in and they started to call me Major Pain or corparelk punishment. I prefered General Specific or Private Personal. All these years later I still were the same thing but I like to be different....

MAN, I've worn out a ton of combat boots!!! 27 years worth!!  I've happily worn sneakers for the last eight years!

Had a pair that I painted red back during the disco era. Sadly I didn't get any luckier!
