    I'v been working on this. I believe it is used to make galvanized sheet metal. It was all in metric and the drawings were somthing called 1st angle projection. Basicaly everything was backwards and upside-down. Right side was on the left,left was on the right the top was on the bottom and the bottom on the top. It's a European thing.

    It's not so much a what you are working on but a more of a what I am finding. Sometimes you can't save them. My 97' 4Runner that most of you have seen me in and what is pictured in my Avatar will no longer be hitting the trails, I will be build my 00' Silver 4Runner from the 97' will start a build thread in a bit for it.

    Besides the rust on the rocker and quarter, the top of the windshield doesn't have any metalleft and rains inside the truck, and with the blow head gasket its just time (I will still be continuing the 5VZ rebuild for the sake of knowing the internals of the engine better). The biggest bummer, I did a frame swap to save this truck....
    Onto the carnage:

    Avi, I have a lift and a forklift here at the shop. We could have a "tech day" and strip this down in one day, load the carcass onto my trailer, and take it to the scrap yard five minutes from the shop. Just a thought...

    I like the way you think and appreciate it! I have to knock out some basic maintenance on the 00' 4Runner and make a list of what I want to keep off the 97' Besides the suspension and the frame (I have an idea for a future project) and then I'll message you and we can make things happen!

    Got a little hairy here and there, but that old 80 was exactly the right tool for the job!

    :cry:
    That's the other thing I've been working on: This White Oak is over 130 years old, IMG_20180328_150417.jpg IMG_20180302_165530.jpg IMG_20180303_144703.jpg came down in the big winds a few months back.

    If anyone knows anyone who would like to mill some of it, please send them my way!
