The cylinder already has the typical Chinese chrome plating. I dunno how long it will last, but for $25 Amazon will have another one here tomorrow. Why worry? :)

Hey Tom, I got these doo-dads in a box of mis-matched gauge blocks.

Hard to see in the pic but they got the Ford logo on them. I don't know about anybody else but I never saw one of those in a Ford! But I did finally find a use for one. I mounted it up on my tool post, used it to find center first, and then backed the cross out the radius I needed to match the OD of my squish cut, and scribed a line. Worked good!

Combustion chamber's next.

You mentioned 1-2-3 blocks the other day and I have a pair that appear to be shop made by a man named Mel.

I never met the man but he made some damn fine blocks!
FOG, I am sure your parents named you well. Alot of us are just plain transparent. Any way another totally unrelated forum jogged my memory.
Last blue window on right side. Look familiar?

I keep my home shop even in Winter at 60F. So far just go in and split kindling and think about what I needs to the Flyer and my first build a Huffy-Davidson need get done while sipping on a Leiny. Huffy was a BBR kit, the Huffy didn't kill me but needs proper good wheels. Then with clean conscience, sell it .

Saturday January 9, My sister Debra passed away due to long term complications of type 1 diabetes. She was 65.
Take a pass on condolences.
No one gets out of here alive.
The man she married in 2015 was one of her better decisions, and he loved her greatly. As you all know with a virus raging through our nation, a gathering of the Clan is out of the realm of possibility.
Take care of your families and don't take chances. Especially with the older family members.
