I am beginning to think i should just ship my GW to you to make new again! You and Frank are doing some amazing stuff out there. Also makes me miss being in the great NW. 11 years in Boise, where i originally bought the tired old GW..I miss it every day.

Both kids graduated from U of I in Moscow. God's country for sure.

You better ship it to Frank. Or any of the other guys on this board. They will get it done faster. Yes this IS Gods country here. There are several nervous white tail deer, some mallards in the makeshift pond I dug and the frogs are deafening. All as I write this sitting here. There might be wolves near by. There is one watching while the others eat. Then they switch. They only do that with a predator in the area. My wife and I love this peaceful place. I hope to see Boise and southern ID again soon. Too bad you had to leave. You could always come back some day.

So I have been pretty busy. Mostly fixing stuff and helping prep the garden for planting. Not sure what is up with Photobucket. It says all my photos have been moved or deleted. 15 bucks buys a lot of fun there.
I built a jig for bending the later model sill plates.



Gave it a try. A couple times.



I am not satisfied with it. I know what it needs, but it is better to start from scratch with all new metal.

This is the perfect profile I need to finish with.



Off to the store tomorrow for more steel and some other items. I also need more embossed aluminum. I have run out of scrap for testing. I still have good pieces for a final product. I may need to use them for R&D. I also need to find a source closer than Buffalo NY as a supplier. Too far away.

On the steering wheel. It looks great however, the SEM paint shrinks a lot. It goes on smooth, then shrinks and reveals sanding lines. So the 400 grit final is a good thing. I want the best I can do. I don't care how long it takes. More as soon as I can.

I was looking at a beat up pre 71 wag about two hours away on Craigs list. I did not even finish saying hey Liz, check out this wag before getting a pretty serious look. I too had better finish some of what is here already. At least I know I have a problem.


******

So another day fumbling around in the shop. I finished the new jig for the later door sills. This one works great. I have several things to streamline to make this easier. The new Jig got screwed down. My horrible freight bender has been pretty modified. It is also sprung some and needs replacing. Unless I can figure out how to unbend it. Anyway, the test piece fit the jig well.





Here is the first one of the later style. There are a few flaws. I was sort of in a hurry as Liz called me for dinner. Just one more bend...



Another view.



They fit just great. The shim pack I ordered from Grainger allowed me to really tune the relationship of the two bead roller wheels. I was able to get a very even roll with equal ramps on both sides of the roll. Not a ramp on one side and a steep wall on the other. Before I could not dial it in no matter what I did. Don't ever buy anything from Baileigh. Their stuff is so so but their customer service is beyond bad. My roller showed up incredibly beat up. They ignored me after they asked me to send pictures of all the damage. It took me 6 hours of straightening to make the roller work. I rant about it every chance I get. Baileigh is a terrible company and does not care about the little guy.



I wanted to nail this before painting the column. Plus I am rounding up some extra stuff that needs to be black.
I also sourced a place in Seattle and have ordered enough embossed aluminum for two more complete sets. It beats coming from NY. Shipping was a tad cheaper. And I need a Beverly shear. My tin snips are hard on stuff.

More soon.

Looks like I have found a place for my replacements when I get to that stage.
