Brad, this topic is dedicated to you, Buddy. Since you called my invention a contraption, and then likened my definition of Contraption to an IBM an acronym, “goldberg” to it in another post, I’ve racked my brain, what’s of it, to finding an acronym for the word, CONTRAPTION. I spent all day today working on it. At 5 pm, while doing the daily ritual of having 2 beers daily, I mentioned my predicament to my son. In less than 2 minutes time, he shows me this; Cuz Only Nearsighted Turners Reject All Problems This Invention Offsets Now

So, what do you think????? ................ Jerry (in Tucson)

Oh man… I should have just kept silent :)

Cheers,
Brad

:-)

And here is the obligatory advertisement for everyone else: Jerry's Tail Stock Contraption

Shucks, Brad, you got me searching the vast empty void of my brain to try to find something else that might work. I escaped a black hole, so I’m still here. Give me a day or two, and I might come up with something.

Thanks for the plug, but this invention will come of age in about 20 years, just like the chucks did. Too bad I won’t be around then…... ........ Jerry (in Tucson)
