I've noticed around here a lot of guy's talk about their wives giving them the go ahead on new equipment, Well
just recently my wife said make sure and get the one you want so PM1440GT 3 phase is on order.
Now I need to get things in my small shop ready to receive a new toy.
It's going to be like Christmas.

Congrats on the new lathe. I'm sure you will like it as much as I do mine. Did Matt have them in stock or are you waiting for a shipment? Be sure to post pictures when you get it. I'll be curious to see if any changes have been made.

Jbolt, It's on the way right now and I'll probably hear from the terminal in a few days.

Ah! I used to fly gliders from Truckee with some of the instructors from the Top Gun school at NAS Fallon, mentoring them at flying cross country in gliders. Very quick learners, and always cool as a cucumber... Is the T-34 still used in the military?

There are a lot of T-34s now at civilian air shows. Retirement job keeping them humming?

Flying sailplanes is the most fun and best adventure we can have with our clothes on. I will tell you more when I see you next...

Just this morning, my wife said, “I’m so happy you are enjoying your shop, you have needed this since you were working in Haiti”.
She is very supportive of my time and the expense involved in this hobby.
I encourage her to travel with her friends, I stay home and develop my skills.
We are planning a trip together to London next Year.
I am leaning toward a PM knee mill and PM1340GT down the road, thanks to you guys.
Oh and Doug, you married a great woman!
