Anyone up for another?? I know it's been some time since we've done one.

I've been in a modeling funk for sometime, but have been working on other projects (building a Air compressor for the garage shop) But I have a hinkering to build some more modeling tools again.

What say We?????

Hi Matt,

You must have received some of my thought waves from a few days ago!! Last week I was thinking about sending you a message to see if you would be interested in running another of your Build-A-Tool campaigns!! I would be all for another one!! The first two definitely wet my whistle!! So you can definitely count me in!!

For anyone that isn't sure about enlisting..........take my word.....they are a lot of fun and a lot of cool ideas come to life.

Thank you Matt!!

Randy

(well for building anyway... just to fix the stupid furnace) And have had many other projects going on. it just kinda hit me that I hadn't done much other modelbuilding retalted stuff in some time. I also found bits from a started one from the last one.... go figure...LOL

I have a mill and a lathe. I think I could come up with a bending mandrel or grabhandle forming jig.

Matt,

I'm in the same boat as you. I have Sherlines and I made a table for the mill and then a Vise to screw right to the table....LOL

I was kinda hoping for more interest.... but maybe the spring weather has people tied up...

I hope that you don't mind Matt, but I posted a link on each of the sister sites promoting your campaign proposal. Maybe that will generate some interest.

I had completely forgot about this campaign. Life has not been too kind to me, either. I'll check into Network 54's policies and see if I can post this over there.

I plan on milling a jig for slat armor. I don't plan on starting any time soon, but hope that this campaign gets kicked off soon.

I'd be into this but not this time. Dec 31 dead line is too soon. Wish I had seen this earlier
