That big drill bit doesn't look all that heavy in your hands.

Out at the Strawberry Cup tonight (winged 410 sprint cars). Tonight also had 360 non-winged sprints and the Old Timers and dwarf cars (1000cc engines). My buddy's Trevor Montgomery #17 and Ryan Wade #94w ran tonight who both also run in Alberta, Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho and Nevada. Unfortunately they both didn't do so well. This is the last Strawberry Cup and the last season for our historic race track as it has been sold and will be bulldozed to make way for a production studio. Yep. More of our local history is being wiped out instead of preserved. Unreal. Drivers such as: Kevin Harvick, Chad Little, Dick Trickle, Billy Foster and I think either Morgan Sheppard or Dave Marcus, I forget, have all raced here a time or two. Our track used to be on the NASCAR Winston Cup West schedule for years and was founded in '56 or '57 and has been filling the 5000 seats every weekend and they sell it and now being demolished. A once good friend of mine owned our track up until he sold it. He comes from a very wealthy dad that owned a Chrysler dealership in town among a good portion of the city but he told me years ago when his dad died that the racetrack will never go anywhere as long as he is alive but 30 years later changes his mind. Now we have nowhere to race next year. Sweet. I'll be at the track every weekend this year as I won't be able do it any more after this season. 😭😭😭😭
Reminds me of the old tracks roadkill finds that only have a few patches of concrete left. But, a production studio? Nobody needs Hollyweird. They have done enough damage to this world. Now they are all moving to Texas to ruin that great state.

2" drills and endmills are the biggest in my collection, after that I have to go to boring heads, or other means.

That's just because of where I was sitting. The handicap gimp section is on ground level and cant see shat. If you sit up higher in the grandstands you can see the hole track.
Ya know, two things about the track. Need better handicap seating & why do people bring babies? I watched a funny car series last year and they had babies everywhere screaming. I was sitting closer to the tree.

It was on my to do list as well. With society tanking and socialism rising... it rose up on the to do list very quickly. lol
I was going to buy some 80% a few years back, then when I went back and looked, the prices were crazy. Somewhere I have the complete plans for starting with a 0%. Just have had too many other pressing projects.

Not sure why, but I always enjoyed cutting down trees. Now the cleanup not so much.

Washington is in ban everything mode but you can keep what you have. July 1 they ban mags over 10 rounds, but we can keep what we have. So I went on a shopping spree. WA also banned ghost guns, but I figure even if I have to register them, they are sooo much cheaper to build than to buy. I saved literally thousands. I'm still money ahead after buying the milling jigs and a safe.

Yup. Love the "TIMBERRRRRR", The CRASH, and the warmth of the wood stove. Everything between the crash and the wood stove is just more work. LOL

Last tree I cut down was a smaller pine. T shirt and shorts. Those little pine needles sure do give you a rash. Fortunately they don’t have much clean up.

i don't mind cutting down smaller stuff but i don't have the confidence or know how to do the bigger stuff safely. i also hate the cleanup. i don't mind dragging or cutting up brush as needed. dragging brush to the chipper is most of the work i do but it really isn't that bad.

here is a cool pic from the weather wee had the other day. couldn't tell what mother nature wanted to do.

Same here in Canada. I strongly believe that they - the government - are planning something big against the masses and they don't want ANY resistance for when it goes down in the next couple of years. Stay armed!!!💪

Get this, I'm at the steel recycling yard today unloading a ton of wrecked hoods, fenders, doors, etc from my buddy's body shop (i take all his scrap metal away), anyways this guy backs up next to me and starts tossing old Mopar parts in the recycling bin, things like steering columns, grilles, front valances and so I said "hey woah!" what are you doing!, he says - I'm getting rid of junk! and I said wait a minute, do you know what you are throwing away?!? He said yep, nobody answered any of my ads so out it goes he says. I said let me give you a couple of bucks for what you have left and he said, "you can have it all, take it" and so I picked through and got: 340 exhaust tips (one missing the mount), A body wiring harness, two E body wiper motors, 440 power steering pump, 440 "purple shaft" cam, B body brake booster, big block points distributor, big block motor mounts, B body wiper transmission, alternator brackets, wheel covers, and kick down linkages and more. It's all actually in good shape, just dirty. So crazy. The guy threw a ton of 440 stuff in the bin before I realized what he was throwing away. So crazy and sad at the same time. Talk about timing, how this guy shows up on the day at the time I was there. Again, crazy timing. What's crazier is that I didn't know who this guy was. I thought I knew every Mopar guy in town.
