    Wow. Impressive. Nice work!

    How did you get that tight radius at each anchor-end of the bar, bend by "heat-and-vise"?!

    Here is a plug for Overland Expo. Had a great time and they did this interview and put it on Youtube.



    Things are a little on the back burner for now. My Wife and I are now taking care of her Mom full time. So not much is getting done. But with GOD's help we will work this out.

    Treasure the time you have with her. Ask as many family history questions you've always wondered about. That time will pass quicker than you want. I was caregiver for my dad for 3 yrs. No regrets other than the stress wore my patience thin at times, I didn't realize how little time with him I was going to have.

    Overall found it to be an honor to care for both my folks in their last years. (about 5 all together). Dad went first...... held his hand as he passed. Mom little over a year later. Way I look at it; I was their "kid" for 18-ish years.... they were my kids for 5.
