Hey everyone, please forgive the absence. It has bee over 8 months since I have last posted a project on here due to being Deployed overseas since April of last year. Serving onboard USS Fort McHenry out of Little Creek Va. It has been nothing less than exciting. From the 120 degree days in Kuwait to the stormy Atlantic seas, I will have to say I have sorely missed the shop. But nothing compares to serving our great country. Hope to ge in the shop here soon and produce something worth posting. Happy holidays everyone.

Welcome home brother. Hope you get back in that shop soon…. First thing I had to do when I got home from afgahnistan in October was set up the shop. The wife agreed to let me buy everything I need to set it up. You are correct about the feeling of serving you country there is nothing better.
