Squid Salad Comparison and Pinball Machine Quality There are a couple of brands of squid salad that I have dealt with recently. They both come from Portugal where they know the ins and outs of squid. Sure, there are a lot of other squid processing countries, but I have a tendency to lean towards the...

Thinking alot about what is next. We are moving towards the end of another decade in a few months, as if that meant anything you say. Well, unless you want it to mean something, that is your choice. I personally like dates, I take pleasure in making them mean something in order to trace the evolutio...

Re: Matching parts to members (And you know that notion, just crossed my mind)

I need a leg bracket for a firepower. The part inside the cab that accepts the bolts. Already packed for the parts table as is is a very popular item at the show. I usually bring 50 and they sell out, will bring more this year. Price is 3.00 each I believe, maybe less. http://www.pbresource.com/hho...

Between the preorders to R.A.B. and all the parts that will be there to sift through, the OPGS show is my time to stock up on everything I need for all of my winter projects.
