    Re: Shop help, trade for lessons,Wood,or tools

    Mike, I'll check my calendar and see what Saturday or Sunday I can free up, but it'll most likely be several weeks down the road. Three weeks ago we lost two of our experienced Electrical Maintenance people and we're terribly short handed at the moment. I've mostly been taking breakdown calls recently instead of getting the time to do my engineering work. Plus one of those two was in my group for on-call weekend duty. Right now there are only two of us so I essentially get every other weekend. I believe I can do either June 23 or June 24! Let me know and I'll add this to my calendar so I don't add something that will prevent my presence.

    Wish I lived closer. I'd work for lessons...
    Wishing you an amazing day, but may it pale in comparison to tomorrow.

    Why do you need help to rearrange your shop. Strong backs to move things around, etc? Hope that you're fit and fine!

    Re: Shop help, trade for lessons,Wood,or tools

    No, Jeff. Iím not fit and fine. I can work for about 15-20 minutes then I have to sit down and rest for an hour.
    Itís hard to get much done like that. So I work like a mad man, leaving a trail of tools and piles of sawdust, scrap wood, and trash all around me. Then when I finish a project I take a day or two to clean up in 15-20 minute increments.

    I need clear out out and make space to set up the dust collector so it is easier to use. I need to get rid of things that are in the way, things I have to work around.

    I need organize all the hardware and small tools in my shop so I can go in and work efficiency to get the most done in the least time.

    And i I need help with that.

    I'd like to help you with that, I'm just not sure as to when I could. That part I'm still working out.

    Re: Shop help, trade for lessons,Wood,or tools

    All of you guys are great friends and it is nice to see you offer to help. I know you all have issues and concerns of your own.

    Graywolf especially has tons of work to clear out his dads shop. I wish I could help with that. Reality says otherwise and I really can’t expect you to put me ahead of your dad.

    I was was hoping some of the younger guys that could use some help with hand tools, lumber, and a little extra cash would step up.

    Thanks Mike, we're always interested in the health of our friends and your rapid exhaustion is worrisome. Medical diagnosis, COPD, heart disease, etc?

    Re: Shop help, trade for lessons,Wood,or tools

    In 2005 I had pneumonia and was prescribed levaquin sp?

    I had a very bad reaction resulting in permanent nerve damage and continuing episodes of random swelling, pain, and rashes.

    Also so have scars in my lungs from the pneumonia that makes it hard to breath sometimes.

    Nothing terrible serious or lethal but quite annoying and painful.

    Re: Shop help, trade for lessons,Wood,or tools

    Weekends are tough for me- especially through early July, but I can run up and meet you after work an evening or two and put a dent in it.
    Let me know if that'll work

    I have also had a negative reaction to the Quinaline antibiotics - caused an Achilles tendon tear - so I know these "miracle" drugs can cause really severe side affects. I now list them as an allergy on my medical records.

    Once you set a date for the cleanup activities, I may be able to join in on the effort as well. Once the date is set, if I can be there, then I will.
