    JW, you sent me a PM recently and it appears I deleted it by accident before I got a chance to read it.

    BudW...
    No Worries.
    I had a razorstik I was getting rid of and thought your kids might want it; however, it has found a new home with a younger man (8 years old).

    I’d participate. Any spending limits, spend whatever the heart desires, only things from around the house or hand made, gifts for everyone involved or Is this going to work like a, secret Santa. I’m all ears and on board.

    Send me your mailing address.
    I'll pick names from the hat and you send your gift to one person.
    No spending limits but try to keep it reasonable -- say 20 bucks or so?.
    Generally, its a chance to pay forward (and empty some of your garage shelf clutter) to the next person if they need it OR
    regift something you don't need OR
    you can handmake or buy something new.

    its just always nice to get something under the tree thats a wee bit unexpected!

    Please mail your gift by Dec 14 so that the person you are sending it to can get it before Christmas.

    You can send a gift (homemade, purchased, regift an old gift, something for the car, something for the person, gift card, donation, whatever works for you). If you want it more personal, please private message the person to get ideas.

    I received my package from, BudW. Inside was this nifty flashlight with magnetic base and charger, even folds to give you more ways to angle and aim the light.
    I’ll use it every day at work to shine a new light on my projects lol
    Many Thanks to both, JW and Bud. I greatly appreciate it.
    Happy Holidays to all.

    I would ask what you’re working on – but not sure I want to know… (its not FMJ related).

    The magnetic base works well. Hang it from bottom side of hood and angle head is one option.
    Hope you get years of use from it.

    Old Komatsu forklift with a Nissan H-20II engine. It’d been parked for about 5 years in the corner of the warehouse at work (I’ve worked here for 3) Someone had rebuilt the engine, covered both sides of the head gasket with RTV, clogged the oil passages and burnt the top end to all hell. Have been slowly getting it back together with parts off EBay (when it’s in my department budget) the last few months. Extra forklift won’t hurt and cheaper than asking for the company to buy another used one...they always buy used the cheap bastards lol

    your new flashlight and that orange glove kinda give off a 'Star Wars' vibe ... like you have a light saber.

    Your package should be at your house on Saturday.
    You realize you'll need to share with those two munchkins in the house.

    Awesome! I’m so glad you like it, lol arts so personal and subjective, I had gotten a little nervous after mailing it out.

    Merry Christmas, JW.

    you don't need to worry about a thing...
    I'd love to have the ability like you.
    I'm a good mimic just like my grandma was.
    But no means in a class like you.
