    yeah buddy, will do!

    not to let the cat out of the bag but i am trying to do some tube work but the welding rods i bought are not welding rods at all, the counter guy gave me braseing rods and dont have the right tools and due to the size of my project even if i did have a torch i doubt i could pull it off, so now im kinda stuck with 2 lbs of rod i cant do anything with...

    Oh no that's not good, don't you hate that when your asking people questions at those places and try really don't know anything more then you do. Haha well you could look up aluminum and brass brasing on YouTube, since you have a bunch of rods just pick up one of those cheap torches and see if it works.

    well since my post i got in touch with a good buddy of mine that is a welder by trade and he was able to direct me to the right place with the right stuff, so I worked out a deal with some other friends for a custom cat house for her daughters cats. so I will be able to pick up the proper welding rods today!! Yeah!!!
    so hopefully the project is back on!!

    What did you think of dribbles scale shop?

    Yeah man, Im hopeing that studding it out doesnt take too long... and i cant work on it today weekend warriors get together today.
    the hoist will be a little deep into the project but having the basement gives me TONNS of space to be as creative as i want!! he he he...

    Was joking with a buddy and said i shoud do a cutaway on the floor and have it open up and have a illegal moon shine opperation setup down there or make the fake ground around the bottom and make it so the bottom front comes off too, to reveal the opp under the floor

    Which ones??? Some I bought and some I made. There's a bunch of different packs available at rc4wd.com, and I made the booster cables, and wood stove. Also found little things like the garbage can at a convenience store, the cabinet at a craft store. I'm always keeping an eye out for things I can use.

    I can't wait to see wht you come up with, I'm leaning towards using 2 cheap servos and sync them together on a 3 position switch. I seen some small pulleys at the hardware store that I think I could get to work with some winch cable. I will build the 2 sides around the cable an pulley to hide it. Dunno yet lots of ideas still running through my head hahaha.

    cool, I found a Crayola color explosion marker. it has a twist bottom and works like a pit stick...twist the bottom and it moves up and down, I should be able to run a single servo basicly like the sketch up I did.

    can't wait to see them in action!
