    Default Had an awesome day today

    I got up early this morning and went for a nice road ride then after lunch I got to take a little cat nap while my wife took the boys to the pool. So then I went by my LBS and after speaking with the owner for a while he gave me a Campy BB facing tool he had laying around! I've been looking to buy one forever but they've always been too expensive- I'm going to make him some earrings to give to his wife in return.

    My machinist friend also gave me a large (roughly 2ft by 4ft) flat precision ground Mic6 tooling plate to use for an alignment table- he had it as leftover tooling from a job and was going to scrap it so he said I could have it. As soon as I can build a jig I'll be on my way to building my own bikes again. Makes me happy...

    Glad to hear it. I visited with family and spent the day on the beach. What was supposed to be a typical WA beach day (rain and wind) decided to be sunny and not so windy. Not as awesome as your day but nothing to complain about.

    Yeah, with three little boys (my oldest is seven) me kicking back on the couch is a rare thing...

    As it turns out the Campy facing tool is missing the guides (circled in red) but I can probably figure something out.
