...Merry bletaed Christmas. This has been a very hard time for me so I figured I'd better not post anything and sound like a depressed moron. Now that Chritsmas is over I guess I can wander back home here. I think I need to catch up on some things so if anybody has anything really important that went on please tell me.

One thing that really got me was today I was out on my lathe and the damn motor fried. It's been running kind of funny...speeding up and slowing down and making some strange noises.. so I figured it was about to go but man...it was acting up and so I shut it off and this little whisp of smoke just POOFED from inside the motor. And the smell....geez I hate that smell it sticks in the nostrils...yuk. So I took the motor off and took it to Sparks Electric Motor and they'll have it all rewound, new bearings and back in A#1 shape either late tomorrow or early Thursday. Big thumbs up to Wayne over there.:wavey:

I just found a killer deal on used motors. There is a shop on Dickerson (between 4th and the river between Keystone and West McCarran) called Western Nevada Electrical Supply. I picked up 2 3horse 3 phase motors for $80 ea. I may ressurect my table saw.
