I have done a lot of different jobs in my short 66 years, The last time I worked a job , I drove bus for 15 yrs. Little over a year ago had a stroke and had to stop working outside the home. Lost most all sight in my right eye and about 30% in the left eye. Just can't understand why they do not want me to drive. LOL. Have a great wife (silly her) , she has stayed by my side for 40 yrs. We have raised 13 kids. We have lost 3 of our boys, have 26 grande kids, and 6 great grande kids. My toy tester.lol
I love making my wooden toys and am trying to sell some to build a real work shop. I now have a space in the basement about 9X17 feet ,not a lot of room to work or store supplies . My wife looks over my work and tells me what is wrong. Some times she helps with the cutting, something about she wants wants me to keep the 9 and 3/4 Fingers I have left..lol. My dad was a toy maker until he passed at 72 yr. and always told us "if you real like doing something you will always find a way no matter what." I try to live my life that way.

Hey guys I need some help. I have an 80 yr old man that want me to build him a 1950s model Kenworth Bullnose truck. I have looked all over the web and can not find a diagram, good drawing, or blueprint of one. Do any of you know of a place to fine one. There are lots of photos of them but I was trying to find a line drawing so I could convert it to a plan. Thanks to anyone that can think of a way to find what I need. Bud
