To much time on my hands

Post by russau on Fri Dec 11, 2015 4:30 am

Well sitting here waiting for my knee replacement Ive been thinking ,(that's where I start to get into trouble) about making some equipment that ive thought about for a looooooooooooong time and decided to (what the heck) go ahead and make it , even though I cant get out to use it ! OR my alternative is :when do you pull the plug on dredgeing / prospecting , and give it completely up??? Then what do you do inbetween TV commercials???

Well, when you were younger you knew what to do to answer those questions. HA HA.
Happy Birthday to Joe AK today and Happy Birthday Russ Mon. Now your both in the 69'ers club. Razz
You can have some cake with Wild Turkey icing and a feeewwwwwww candles. Cheer up you'll feel like a new man after you get that new knee.

Good Luck.

Russ,

A knee replacement? Replace the old one with what..............a "new" one? Made of what?

Best of luck, when/if that comes to pass! Very Happy

So, what kinds or types of home made equipment are you thinking of making now? If you do, please put it all under the DIY thread above, so we all can follow along, enjoy, learn... Wink

Don't give up. What else are you going to do???

Randy its already there in the DIY forum under DickBs "Winter Projects". Im working with some guys (over the internet) to design / plan out a effective 5 inch subbie that will save fine gold. I think the new knee will be composed of old beer cans and duct tape. I asked if he could upgrade to gorilla tape instead of the duct tape. we will see what he uses!Smile
