  1. Predicted path a little closer to Beaumont right now than Lake Charles. Both are gonna get a big hit from it for sure. My in-laws lost their home to Rita, so we are real concerned that could happen again.

  2. Lake Charles family headed this way. They'll be staying with us until it's safe to return. Really does look like its going where Rita went. I remember that one all too well. Never will forget the mountain of refrigerators I saw after the storm.


    Carl, stay safe buddy.


  3. Those look like good MIG welders. A person could buy the required mig gun off EBay or Amazon. The Lincoln 256 is rated for 250amps / 40% duty cycle which is a good strong welder. I own several Lincoln mig welders at lower amp ratings and they have been dependable workers for years.


    I wonder if the seller might have a mig gun/shielding gas/wire so these could be tested before buying. I imagine the control board in one of those would be very expensive to replace if faulty.


  4. Nah, everything I buy needs a "break in" period from trucks to sewing machines to gasoline outboard motors, to speakers. Just like people, relationships between parts of a mechanism take time to get to know one another. My wife and I had to have a little break in period in our relationship. That was 20 years ago. Who said it wouldn't last? :)

  5. The PC is king of gaming these days it seems. In a world where NVIDIA has created superior G sync technology. It's a system where the PC and the monitor work together to create the fastest video generation possible. I don' think a TV reliant system stands a chance across multi-platform games.  The technology supports real 144 frames a second. Can any TVs even really do that? I know some advertise 240hz, but that's really a lie as I understand it.

    saw a news item that a 37 year old Vet was previously on Facebook saying that he won't buy a F-ing mask ... he just died from Covid. 

    The media seems to be churning those stories up every day now. Just wonder how true some of these are.


    As for Covid, we now know 1/2 a dozen people who have had it. All were/are nearly asymptomatic. No real health problems to report.

  7. Hey Amy, we've missed you. That photograpy thread is still going strong. Do you still take pictures? Post some there if you do.

  8. Hey Coytee, an oxygen lance might be the way to go on this. With that tool you cold cut a hole all the way through the pin. Then let it cool and shrink. Then drive it out. It does require a welder and a bottle of oxygen. Check out this video for how one works.



  9. I know we have some people here that are experts in vision/glasses. My son just left the eye doc. He was told he didn't need glasses, but he did get a prescription for corrective lenses at -0.25 for each eye. So he is slightly near sighted, right? Wouldn't that affect his ability to play baseball at the varsity level? Based on his sporting activities, he think he might need them. What do you think?
