Sorry that I missed you. Jerrys is only a short way away from my house.
A little story about them: They are the largest privately owned Ace
hardware store in the US. When Home Despot decided to open a store
here, they announced plans to open 3 stores. Although they didn't say
so, the plan was to open more than they needed to run the competition
out of business. Well, Jerrys beat them to the punch, and opened a
second store, and Home Despot only has their one. Hooray for the little
guy. Maybe we can meet the next time you come to town. I grew up in NW
Missery (thats just north of you), and the only thing that I miss from
there are the lightening bugs.
I did run into Richard Rombold (he is a turner also) at a local show,
and he told me that he offered you the use of his shop. You are welcome
at my place too. Hope to see you some time,
If I had access to a store like Jerry's I would never darken the door
of any other Borg anain. Yes Richard did offer his shop if I needed
it. Turned out the only wood cutting I did was saw a scrap piece of
plywood for a cat ramp to a cat door I installed in a wall. Damn cat
is so fat he almost couldn't get through the door. Anyone need an
extra wide push stick?? Thanks for your offer also. Seems I have
better and more tools availabile to me 2200 miles away then I do in my
garage. Just kidding. It will likely be quite a while afore I get
that way again, unfortunately.
