So, took my truck in last week to get ready for a road trip. Told the Service Manager to give it the once over and let me know what it needed. Got it back last Friday, but didn't drive it again until today. Took it for a trip to the mail box. Total round trip of about 4 miles.
Just about got to the mail box when I heard a loud "PING" from the front left wheel, and then something that sounded like a chain dragging (Maybe something rattling around in the wheel) and then a loud grinding and the truck pulling to the left.
Just glad it happend today and not when I am 200 miles from the nearest service station...
Anywhoo, to get this woodworking related, My UPS driver saw me on the side of the road, and thought he would save himself a drive up to my house as he had a package for me. I told him about my predicament and asked if he could just deliver the package to my house and let Sharon know what was wrong, as I had left my cell phone at home. He's a nice guy and said sure. We usually have a bit of a chat everytime he delivers things and I just thought I'd make him a pen. I know it's his job to deliver things, but he saved me a long walk. So I figure I'll make him a pen.
I'm trying to decide between a generic dark wood, or a brown woodland camo polyester pen... What do you think?
