Some crown moldings and a chandelier would be quite quaint....and a fine Persian
rug would soak up any leaky oil in an upscale fashion.
:lol:

How about any of the unemployed Tavern or Valley Villa girls serving as tool fetchers, light holders, general morale boosters, etc?

A well stocked fridge, being necessary to the enjoyment of a hobby garage, the right of the people to keep and drink beer, shall not be infringed.

Where's the fridge??? :mrgreen:

Well, how about a Beer light, or at least, a Summit flag!

Well the Pièce de résistance has arrived!

This is my Atlas 9K0H lift. With a 9000lb capacity, I should be able to lift just about anything I'll ever own, unless I get a 1-ton diesel dually or something like that. Some assembly required.

A BIG THANKS to GMJohnny and his CCM Chesterland counterpart Sean for unloading it off the truck with their forklift, storing it inside for a couple days, and putting it on a trailer for me. They didn't even charge me for the trailer rental! I hope they enjoyed the donuts. :-) Seriously John, that was a big help, especially with the weather the past couple days.

I'm glad I could help out!!! Now when you go to drill the concrete, give me a call
and CCM can hook you up with a sweet rotary hammer that will drill a hole through
4" concrete in less than 30 seconds..... Keep me posted on your needs!!!

Is anyone available for a few hours next weekend? My buddy Dave Speece said he could help out either Saturday early afternoon or Sunday. Seeing if I can get 1-2 other people to help out. I've got pizza and beverages.

The guys told me $45/day for the drill and $2.50/day for the bit. After the receiving, storage, and free trailer rental, I feel like I kinda owe them. :-)

Saturday is out, but Sunday might be OK. You buy breakfast, I come help (insert Chinese accent).

That's cool. 8:30 or 9?

Can you think of anything I should bring (besides Tony's wheels)?

9 is fine. Yeah, bring Tony's wheels (nice wheels, huh..)

The only tool needed that I don't think I have is a 4-foot level. You have one?
