    Quadruple WOW. I am so impressed with the drive movement. Keep the pictures coming Steve. BTW, like the pic with your fingers. They look as if they are from a mechanic's hands.

    That's cool. You don't see square head bolts very often anymore. I think they went out with the Titanic.

    This is so interesting! Remind me, the Howe is dated from when? I'm ready for the next installment of pics.

    Sorry, I'm making a suit of body armor for a person who competes with Team USA in the Battle of Nations (it's on the web) so it slow in the sewing world.

    I did do some painting tests and determined that flat black primer, satin lacquer looked best... (grin...)

    Thanks for your pictures. It is very informative. Looks like quite a job you have started. I am sure you will show pictures when you finish.
