This is awesome - you're going faster than I am with my dinky trim saw conversion (I have a dinky amount of energy right now) - good on you, can't wait to see your progress. When done you better send it to me so I can make sure it's safe for you to operate 'cause friends gotta have each others backs you know  chuckle   saved7   chuckle

Say have you decided on what kind of feed system you're going to use (weight, worm screw, an inlaw you don't like pushes rocks in manually and closes lid after self) ?

I tell people I always  go to Cape Cod for vacation. Since I live here why not, it's where everyone else wants to go. This is actually a vacation from work. Just wanted to get away from there for a week or so. It was also my birthday on Sunday and I always take my birthday off. Since it landed in the middle of my work week I figured what the hey, take the whole week off. It was fun but have to go back on Friday. But it's payday so not too bad.LOL

Looks good so far.  I have a feeling the hard part is yet to come.  From the looks of things so far I think your up to it.
