I don't get here as much as I did. You don't need it that often. You Gentleman are to be commended for a job well done. It could have just as easily failed but thanks to all it did not. Again, Kudos to you all for keeping it together.

EVERYONE have a happy holiday, Of course the people getting the boxes just before the holiday got an little extra to look at as well.
My bad as well but we have to start posting some pictures on here of what we got out of the box. That also lets us see what people are liking in the boxes.

Well I'm on Christmas vacation in Florida but I talked to my son this afternoon and it appears that box #2 arrived at my place. I'll check it out when I get home on the 31st and send it on to the next recipient. Merry Christmas everyone.

I got home fro my Christmas vacation yesterday and found box#2 waiting for me. I took 2 end mills out of the box that I could very much use and added several things. I had to remove much bubble tape and packing to make everything fit back in the box, and it will be along to it's next destination as soon as I get an address to send it to.

My wife and I do live in Tempe most of the year, and drive to Corvallis for the summer. But we also come here from about mid December to mid January, mainly because of a 10+ year tradition I've established of throwing a New Year's Eve party. I've got machine tools at both ends, and it's sometimes a lot of fun to look for a missing tool or widget at the wrong end!

Ahhh. Makes sense now. My mother has a place up in Sedona, and my son's GF's family live outside of Prescott.
Tempe is one of the few places I would happily relocate to. I have always enjoyed bumming around down there - though I have heard it has gone down hill in recent years a bit.

Well, I got Box #1 packed up and ready to ship before dinner tonight. Then after dinner, I checked my stock of flat rate boxes. No joy. Didn't have the one needed. So I drove the 10 miles to the post office. DURN IT!!! The !)(#&$#@#!@%?&* dinky little PO didn't have the right size boxes at their self-service kiosk, either!!!!! And of course, it's the weekend, so they'll be closed until Monday.

And I'll be busy a a one-armed paper hanger Monday, packing up the car for our trip back to AZ (hard deadline in play). Brian, please be patient with me. I'll get it mailed off from the Tempe post office ass soon as I can. We'll be on the road Tuesday thru Thursday, and I plan to get it sent no later than Friday.

Here's the stuff I took - mill vise stop, Starrett indicator mount bar, double ended carbide insert lathe tool, bunch of cemented carbide boring bars, cutoff tool holder, height gauge blade, 3" ruler, swarf rake, and some shim stock. I discarded a soapstone because it had broken into a large number of very short pieces in transit.

No problem, it may work out better now because there is a local online auction on the 12th that I am signed up for, so I may have some additional items to add to the box, wish me luck. LoL

Woodrowm is the next person in line for box #2. Start a conversation with him (send a PM) to get his mailing address. Give him a few days to respond; send it his way when you are able.

Still haven't heard anything from Rafferty. Not sure the status of the box. Hopefully everything is ok and he has just been busy.

In the forum software used here, they are not called Private Messages, but instead are referred to as "Conversations". You can get to them in the upper right corner of your screen by clicking on "Inbox". From there you can read messages that have been sent to you or you can choose to start a new conversation with someone. You can also start a new conversation with someone by clicking on the "Contact" button directly below their avatar over on the left side of the screen.

Andy hasn't logged in to H-M since February 1st. On that very day he told me that he had Woodrowm's address and would send the box out to him in the next few days.
