Looked up Harbour Freights drill presses Rick and not to surprising there was the one I bought and the price I paid wasn't to a lot more than what H.F. wanted. Curt sent Silverbear a bench top drill press he had and I've put it through some pretty thick steel and it's never slowed down.

I was surprised at what it did. I like the space it takes up as well. We have a floor model drill press in the back workshop but this one will save a lot of foot steps.

More done on the gas/oil tanks but nothing photo worthy as yet. Going to finish out the second tank I made so I can use tank liner on them both. Just easier to mix up the two cans of tank liner and divide it up between the tanks.

Ordered parts are trickling in. Upholstery needles and and thread for Silverbears chair came in today. Six to twelve inches long and a couple of the bigger ones look like the needles they used on my knee.

Steve it seems you are getting there. Adding stuff for final push and future projects as well. I use Eastman's tank seal products and have had excellent results, but I know others have their favorites to swear by. Good thinking on mixing a batch for two tanks at the same time.

I also have been taking care of little stuff that matters, but which don't photograph well. Both bikes I'm taking to Houston are drained, polished & packed for the trip down next week and I've been doing some fine tuning on the bikes I ride most often, plugs and stuff, plus detailing a bit...Spring things.

Rick, it never ceases to amaze me that a person can spend the better part of a day drawing lines on something and drilling a couple of holes. Not to mention hours of creative staring and making sure it's the right thing to do before it's done.

I'm using Caswell tank sealer. It was recommended by Tom/Two Door and it's available in Canada which makes it easy to get without the two governments getting involved at the border. It will be together soon.

Hit the old parts wall for the moment. Going to move on to Silverbears chair for the Hiawatha tri car until the parts get here.
