itsme_Bernie, dlane, and woodrowm have all been added to the list again. With just a tiny bit of juggling, there are at least 10 individuals in between your names.

IMG_0528.jpg Hello there everyone. Box 1 arrived on Saturday April 16 in great shape. I must say that rmac898 did a fantastic job on the aluminum box. I will last for a long long time, and be easy to fix should a screw get stripped. This is really a fun Idea, I hope that everyone keeps this box cooking across the country. Next up is Hackley69. Pm was sent for his address, and as soon as I have it the box will be on its way. That said I found some items that I really can use, and the photo is attached

Hi all.
I want to give a formal and public apology for not getting Box 2 out sooner from the old pass around thread. I was doing 6 day weeks of very long days until I got a severe case of diverticulitis. Everything sort of went sideways after that with work piling up, step father got sick, etc. I finally had to take a morning off to take my mom to the doctor, and I slipped over to the post office and mailed the box.
Everybody is fine, but I am still stupidly busy.

All I kept from the old box was a couple of Rex 49 3/8" tool blanks. I took a pic, but the quality is low, they just look like two small rusty pieces of metal...

Hopefully life will calm down in the next month, and I can rejoin the community. I really miss the forum.

I think we all understand. I had the illusion that once I retired I would have all the time in the world to do the things I enjoy most. In reality, there seems to never be enough time.

It's okay, Josh. We've all been in that situation where everything is going wrong and you just wonder when it will all end. It's good to know that you are okay.

1462028608339.jpg Sorry for the picture coming in late I have had some trouble figuring out how to post photos again. Must be the old age! I know these will come in handy and thanks to everyone for sharing their knowledge and extra tools with other members. I don't have a lot of knowledge in this field but I do have a few tools I can pass along to others.

Hey gang, finally surfacing for air. Cleared off my bench the evening it came in (over a week ago) and just this evening got back into my shop.
Came in a week ago - Tuesday, so I'm a bit behind. What a nice aluminum shipping 'container'! Kudos to @rmack898.

One thing I would like to note to all, tape all the edges and corners. When I received it, one cardboard edge was worn off and torn.
I swear that there is a conveyor somewhere on the way to the Knoxville area that likes 'chewing' boxes.
The tape will help with the friction/wear as the box makes the gauntlet through the conveyors.

I've got two suggestions to make:
The first being - we should affix a label on the inside of the lid with someone's name & address just in case the the aluminum box
breaks out of the cardboard shipping box and needs to be 'returned to Sender'.
Send me the info for whom should be 'Homer' for this puppy and I'll take care of that before I ship it back out.
Second, I'm making up some simple stickers that will say 'HEAVY'. I'll do up a few sheets and include them with the box.
Our carrier told me that it took her by surprise because someone else had loaded her trays at the post office.
(It also weakened our large mailbox post, and I had thought I had braced for darn near anything.)
So I'm thinking we can be kind to future handlers and flag the box as being a tad on the heavy side given it size.

I'm going to start rooting and digging tonight and pack this puppy up with items from all the auctions and estate sales we've hit, and
stuff I've got in bins that I will never get around to using. (Get ready for some chuck keys gang <GRIN>)
There's a pair of slit saws stuck together, covered in the 'goo' and I'm trying to separate them so that I can glum onto one.
I'm figuring on sending it out early next week to Fitter Bill.

Got it this AM. Cardboard box in excellent condition. Going to the shop this afternoon to open it up. Christmas in May. I'll be sending a PM to the next recipient for mailing information.

Box left today, just shy of 29 lbs. Took everything out of the box and spread it out on the bench, many thing in there, WOW. Picked what I just could not live without. I already had my "donations" ready to go.
Ed ke6bnl is up next.

Here is a picture of what I took from the box.

Finally found my camera. Was worried for a bit that I'd stuffed it in the Pass-around box.
Here's what I grabbed before sending it off.

Very nice! This Pass Around idea has become "gifts from Santa at any time of the year". Our members are generous both in giving of helpful feedback and gifts wouldn't you agree?
