    Funny CL Ad - Overpriced Junk For Sale - Available Anywhere

    I second those motions. Miss-used contractions are my peeve. A well crafted add can improve sales. You have to wonder if some of these folks can suck air without mechanical help!? :oops:

    Sandblasting help

    Sand is the worst thing to use in a sand blaster. I got my abrasives from Harbor Freight, but pick it up, don't have it shipped. I didn't want a barrel full, just 5 - 50 lbs. at a time. I read one needs 7 cu. ft. per minute of air at 90 psi to blast well. Check your compressor output, and adjust...

    Bicycle Porn & Evelyn-my project bike

    Wasn't trying to bait you, Steve. I knew it was Hooch. I've been a fan since I first saw his smiling face (on here). His Wright bicycle inspired my next project: something decent to do with a lightweight. See a lot of them cheap. You think Hooch is listening? :oops:

    Bicycle Porn & Evelyn-my project bike

    I receive Bicycle Porn on Facebook. Nice bike photos several times a week. (I think someone from here has something to do with it) Last photo was a bike made by Huffy. A comment explained how to decode part of the serial number. Evelyn is a 1975 model, same age as my son. At my age it isn't...

    Just received an LED taillight. Only five days in transit. The best three bucks I ever spent. I put in my favorites. Also got a digital veneer caliper (stainless steel) for under $8. Came with battery plus a spare. Hey, my Huffy is from China. At least none of this money is going to...

    Farmall build idea

    Reflective tape would make a functional triangle. You could cut down a real triangle & just add red tape. That would give you a stout backing as well. I didn't think I'd like this project (too many green bikes with yellow wheels), but I'm starting to get into it. Please keep us posted.

    Tell us what ticks you off..

    I am deeply saddened and ticked off by the ignorant, misplaced anger empty-headed wing nuts spout. The poor & disadvantaged are always targets, blamed for society's ills. Does WalMart really need tax breaks to build new stores? Do we need to end Medicare to control spending? Do the rich really...
