Building Skills to work through problems – My E-mail Problem.

I decided to post this one as an audio podcast. The story is long and detailed to tell all of it, but it is still superficial in a way because I did not talk about the details of the programs. In other words this is mostly an overview. My main reason for sharing it is

Making a Clamp into a Spreader.

The clamp being used as a spreader

As I said in the last post I took a little time off to zoom out and think about the direction of this blog. Also as I stated I worked on some maintenance both on this site as well as at home and my vehicles. Some of

It has been a little while since I have posted anything and especially a long time since I posted anything about CAD. I helped a viewer with some CAD problems and decided it might be helpful to others. This new video was posted tonight.
