Projects are like life Joe, If I didn't have any I wouldnt have anything to do. IT doesn't matter if many sit idle. Think of it as an endless future of stuff you like to do. If everything was done then what would you do? My Uncle put it well when I asked him about his Woodie Jeep project. I said when will it be done. He said I hope never.

Hey I sold my box of slides to a WWII collector today for 100 bucks. He didn't argue at all which leads me to believe a whole set is rare. He was really excited about them. Some of the color slides of the B-25/29 bombers were really cool. I didn't look at all of them until today when we met.

I sold the little 2 horse outboard for 150 a couple days ago. That was my price for a motor that had not run in 30 years. It needed a full carb rebuild, fuel line ect. The guy loved it, he restores old Alpha Romeo cars and was happy for the project.

I need to re-post a few things, I think my skis and boots would probably do better as a package instead of separate.

I could have resold those 17" tire 3 or 4 times

Looking for a lackey to go down to Brimfield with me and do the show. Aprox dates May 11-15. Help set up, work the show and pack at the end. Will pay 300 plus meals. There are only a few heavy things mostly smalls. Camp in the van or bring tent. You may bring a few things to sell too.

Wife says go so I am your lackey if it works. I would need a little instruction in what sells down there. I dont have a lot of stuff but I probably have some things that are interesting and would move. My Van is running great but I dont really need a whole set up. Lets talk about the best approach. I do have a nice folding table and can get the use of a haul mark trailer. 18027353288

Well this should be an adventure. I will pull together a few items that I bought on speculation. Mr Peanut is worth some money. Do you take checks? IT would seem like Cash is king. People walking around with wads of cash looking for cast iron peanut men? Pricing seems like a learned skill at these type of events.

Eric give me a call 8027353288.

Mr Peanut is one of only 12 in the world. He came from the top of the headquarters of Planters Peanut building.
Can you say super rare?

sounds like a craigslist add, let me guess a dealer offered you $10,000 for it 20 years ago.

DP you should get a Hat cast for it and then Ebay it complete. Its a bigger crowd on Ebay. I bet it would be less then 250 for a hat if you went to the place that made my oven wall for my cook stove. They only charged me 150 for a whole oven wall. Its a much bigger part. Do you have a picture of the original Hat?

I actually like your mr peanut more than this 'restored' sample. What he's asking and what he can get are two different things..... Nothing you don't know. I bet your piece is worth about as much as some peanut head is willing to pay.

That hat looks easy to cast. I have some brake rotors. Let make a forge and melt some Iron. I bet it was done in sand.

Or you could just put on a Boston Red Sox cap and call it a day. Why does everything you do Bob involve so much effort?

Joe it keeps me sharp. DP would double his take if that thing had a hat. All I did was type. I have been thinking of melting metal. A forge would be cool but I will just weld things for now. I need practice so bring me your welding projects so I can ruin I mean fix them

This place would be easier and more palatable to Joe's relaxed life style. DP could make a wooden hat model and just send them that.

Bob, I want to make a foldable boat cart out of bike frames some time. I saw four old bikes set aside at the Rutland transfer/recycling center yesterday. I should go back next weekend and see if they're still there. Having some spares to experiment with would be good. You want to try cutting up and welding a boat cart or two sometime? Beers on me.

Sounds like a good sunny afternoon project. Bike frames always get me thinking about what you could do with those parts. I need some more metal blades for my sawsall. I am fat with welders and short on good cutting tools. I have an older chop saw which I bet would carry an abrasive blade that would dice bike frames nice and square. I have a trailer for moving kayaks and canoes. It came with one of my boats.

I am home a lot and love visitors. It keeps me from talking to the dogs. Speaking of which my dog caught a giant Grey Squirrel this morning. A big male that likely weighed a couple pounds. I didn't see the kill  our Dog Juno returned with it. She dropped it at our feet like she was trained to do that by someone.
