more cuttin'

Had enough time off and the eyeball feels back to normal. Built a jig so I could finish cutting the rest of my cross braces for the two truss halves. Strapped on the new safety goggles and chopped 40 more 6" pieces so I am ready to mate it all up tomorrow. My eyes felt safe and sound. The one chunk of shade cloth I hung up came in pretty handy today as I worked out in only 20% of the typical blazing UV.

I am really happy to hear that you're on the mend, and feeling better now. Just wanted to let you know that your fans are still out here rooting for you! I also still plan to drive out someday to see how you're doing - in person.

Take care.

Glad to hear you are doing better and specially that you are wearing your safety goggles.

just be certain when you drive out that if you have locking lugs on your wheels that you have the key. If not, a slightly undersized socket will do with a hammer and a ratchet. Wish we'd have known this. I t was mentioned by JW and his friend Ryan, but we were scared it would damage or break the stud. Turns out the stud is stronger than anything you can do manually. Makes us wish we'd taken the risk.
