    The trucking company called...

    My Robust is on its way! The guy at the trucking company expects that it will be here on Wednesday. I've got to remake that hole in the shop now...

    More to come when it comes.

    Oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy!

    Does this mean we'll really have a Robust time at the unveiling BBQ?

    On a more positive note, it looks like a dream machine and I am sure you will love it!

    I sorta feel sorry for that poor Robust lathe. I watched Bill abuse a Vega for a couple of days and that Robust better be able to live up to its name because our friend Mr. Grumbine takes no prisoners when it comes to putting chisel to spinning wood.

    By the way, don't ask Bill stupid questions while he is coring. He cored 15 pounds of silver maple at me in Greensboro....and I was just minding my own business.

    Bill missed by the way. He was surprised that I was as agile as I am. Float like a butterfly sting like a bee....
    I may be getting a little older physically but mentally I'm still tarp as a shack.

    Stu beat me to it, but I wanted to toss out a pre-emptive "You Suck!" just for good measure.

    Congrats, Bill.
