    Myrna and the Alien From Space

    I guess I am messing up. This is the 3rd time I have tried this. So if you see in triplicate, it is not your fault. You have not developed a third eye.

    Myrna, the LOML, wondered about the poor alien from space and why he lost his weapon in my shop. How is this poor guy going to conquer the world if he does not have his armament?

    I guess things are just tough all over---except for a couple of our guys who have new jobs.
    First of all you have to be smarter than the machine.

    Space alien, my eye. I can almost hear the "pew-pew-pew" sound you make as you shoot it across the kitchen at your poor, unsuspecting wife.

    Until Larry chimed in, I was with Myrna! I too have never seen anything like that.

    Aviation tools. Often called micro-stops or cages. A bit pricey but many are mar-free and quite precise. example: http://www.browntool.com/Default.asp...cProductNumber

    Wow. I have never seen one of those outside of an aviation environment. My dad used to have them because he used them at North American Aviation/Rockwell.
