    Well congrats Ken, that sure was a little time in coming, but well worth the wait.

    BTW, I have to admit, I'm shocked, SHOCKED I tell you, utterly flabbergasted .................

    You did not have any WD-40 in the workshop

    Naah....I'm not buying it, (no curlies) 'cause I KNOW how ingenious some of you 'puter whizzes can get with "Photoshop", building pictures, Especially if you need to get some of these Deep Vortex guys to quit Pressuring you to Quit workin' on finishing your shop and fall into the Vortex instead.

    Ken, that IS a beautiful machine, (even to this not too VORTEXED kind of guy), and I know you are Really going to have plenty of FUN making a lot of beautiful items with it, (especially with the "HEAT" in the shop this winter). I guess you might as well go ahead and post all your "Flatwork Tools" for sale NOW, before they start collecting Rust.

    I think they describe that tool "The Cat's Meow", Right? Have Fun with it.
