Boy, Butler Built was right on the ball, called about an hour ago and parts were ready. Just got back with them and now to buff the slag off and start drilling holes, forming, etc. Mardy will miss out on all the work.

Both sides de-slagged and all brackets broken out of sheet and break out tips ground off. Will be able to make 26 kits out of this batch. Will start drilling the 468 holes and chamfering 936 holes tomorrow.

Gettin' too old for this stuff.

Know that feeling....just got an order for 30 toddler sized picnic tables. Their fun doing, but after the planing, the sawdust disposal is overwhelming, plus having to pack all materials 200 feet, each way. Come on....RACE DAY!

oldcoot and bob, ......

yall need to try "retirement", it'll solve a lot of life's problems,
although it does come with its own, the main one is less money in the bank,
and then there's the "honey-do list"
but it sure is a special time in life,
it just takes so long to get here,
and usually last such a short time,
oh well, "honey-do this" is calling,........
she forgets there just ain't enough money to do that..........................

My thoughts on retirement:
God give me work, till my life shall end
And life, till my work is done.


Others opinions may vary!

Hanging it up for today, got the 468 holes drilled, 956 holes chamfered, lower stow brackets formed, bead blasted, stamped. and the upper brackets stamped. Just have to form the upper pole attaching brackets and bead blast them. Another 2-3 hrs work and then wait until the hardware arrives when TOWTA packages it all. Also have to print the instructions and pole sketch.

OC,
Using my awning poles now and I used them last weekend. At a waterfront campsite on a lake right now and it's a bit breezy. Set them up when I got here (about 2:30) and haven't worried about it one bit. Awesome! Thank you my friend!
