What he said. Except I'm not a programmer haha we do anything from simple manual machining to 5th axis machining. One day I'll probably have to give up machining to work for my dads Granite business.

I am in Army aviation. Currently I am rated in three different aircraft, I predominantly fly the OH-58 Kiowa Warrior. That's all about the change though seeing as how the Army is getting rid of that aircraft. I've done several deployments to Afghanistan and have approximately 1000 combat hours. For now I love my job I love my aircraft and I love serving our country. I hope the new aircraft army sends me two will be just as enjoyable as flying the Kiowa Warrior.

another garage i just built. it is a 30 x 30 with 10 foot side walls and ceilings, a 18 x 8 overhead door and a 30 x 8 foot covered toy parking pad. the customers are very happy in a few weeks here we are going to build them a house to match. i tried really hard to match everything on their wish list and still stay as close to $30,000 as possible. they ended up at right at about $33,000 out of pocket. i hope their atvs appreciate all the rough sawn cedar tongue and groove we used under the covered parking.



























the owners still have to have it stained and painted, which i would have done but i was happy a local painter would do it cheaper.

Damn fine piece of work Leo. I love Wood.
I hope they just use a clear sealer/repellent
and stay away from typical paint.

Yeah I think the only things they are going to paint are the exterior walk in door and the power box. The rest is suppose to be stained and sealed.

i never sold a carb fix or know of anyone that did.

if you have to set your idle real high or it stalls i would suspect the throttle safety contacts in the thumb throttle. that is cured by more slack in the throttle cable. of course this is only if you are using the stock thumb throttle and the wires are connected to it.
