Glenn and I drove over to Wicks in Highland, IL yesteday to get assorted nuts, bolts, washer and screws. I was afraid it was going to be icy, but that wasn't the case, it was just windy. A quick stop at Aero in pick up the fabric and then downtown St Louis to get some leather for Glenn.
Glenn has a rotary sandblaster to use on small parts that works wonderfully. I call it the rock tumbler. Eight minutes in that and the pieces come out bright and shiny!
