Re: my journey begins
thanks for the tip crassius, I will probably have to wait until friday to pick up the engine kit. I'll ask them if they have any extra mounts. most of their inventory is out of stock from what I can see on their website.
my wife also reminded me that my good friend just did a career change last year, and is now a certified welder. he has a very meticulous eye for detail in everything, almost ocd like perfectionist. so I think he will probably be fairly competent welder even as green as he is. he's interested, but he lives a ferry ride away so I'll have to do something for now. then when we can get together I'll worry about ascetics.
