  3. I was on 2000 ml a day of metformin for quite a while. My stomach hurt all the time and I could not make a real stool. I don't miss metformin either!!~!

  6. Thomas This will be my daily driver when done. Thus the need for better power , braking sound deadening and other amenities found in newer vehicles. Thus the term at the beginning of my post Resto-Mod.
  7. I haven't been posting much lately about forging because I have started working on a frame off resto-mod of a 1969 Ford F-250 Crew Cab truck. Here is a picture from when I was still driving it. I have the bed and front clip off and just finished building a 3 inch dual exhaust system with H pipe from the headers back to the bumper. I have a mock up block in it to fab exhaust and do drive train mods. I have replaced the 4 speed standard with a dodge NV4500 5 speed with over drive and a New Process 205 divorced transfer case. power steering and brakes with a disc brake front axle have been installed. Currently I am building 2 new rear cross members and boxing the rear frame to accommodate a 31 gallon rear tank so that the puny 17 gallon tank behind the seat can go away. I found a 1969 428 Cobra Jet motor out of a Torino GT to use in the truck it is at the machine shop now . The motor will be a torque beast when done. I am using a stroker kit for an all new rotating assembly and the heads are getting ported. Going to top it off with a tuned port injection manifold. Next up is removing the cab and getting the entire body blasted and primed. Needless to say my after work time has been taken up. I can post more pics if any want to see them. BTW I miss the cool weather of the pacific northwest where I used to live. Here in Texas it has hovering around 100F YUCK
  8. very cool tool I am nowhere near a point where my skills can justify many of my tools But I still appreciate them and my ability to use them will continue to improve I like the idea of definitively quantifying your results
  9. S and S anvils are very good german anvils. The ones I have seen have all been forged. I have a 462# forged S&S You have acquired an excellent anvil congratulations
  10. Bleu86 I am in Liberty Hill tx just a few miles north of you. I have some very hard steel that would make a good starter anvil. Most of the stuff in the picture is jack hammer bits from large excavators. There is a local shop that lets me have the broken or worn out bits. Pm me and I either give you some or help you get some from my source. David
  11. Yes What Frosty said He better at typing his thoughts than me
  12. Please don't be cranky and show us a close up of the pattern. Thanks
  13. I am definitely liking the low # patterns. Keep up the good work and continue to show us more
  14. If it was it would be sexy ! Probably worth 2 manpower to make. But then there is the using Pattern welded chainsaw Bar ? The chisels are beautiful . BTW
  15. Chris Is it a Herd? I think that he has a whole "flocking" bunch of hammers! If only I had such a large flock
