I interviewed for job back in 1980 at the Shakopee facility, and was taken on a tour of the facility. Never saw a shark, but I did see a few cool project sleds ( pogo invader, independent frontend invader). I was surprised I got to see them. I am glad I did not take the job. I would have enjoyed the work, but I would have starved.   
It's great to have the newest, biggest, baddest and, most toys in the sandbox.  We need to keep it this way as a deterrent and, to end any fight.

Now this nation that I love has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flyin' in from somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the fourth of July

Hey Uncle Sam, put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty started shakin' her fist
And the eagle will fly man, it's gonna be hell
When you hear mother freedom start ringin' her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you

Thanks Joe, I'll spread the word. Maybe its time for a party at Vollmers
GHenery  you are correct  about the secret handshake . Apparently I have not got that perfected yet. I bet when I get some of these parts replicated  to exact as originals . my handshake would be accepted . That is when I have my own secret handshake ?  ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;) ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Pure BS (Non Vintage Sled Related) / Re: Milwaukee Tools.........

A week ago, I built a frame/stand for a 3 point hitch log splitter. When making the legs, I had to drill through, 1/4" and 3/16" angle iron for the pins to attach the legs. I started with my usual stash of bits, and quickly realized that they just weren't gonna do the job. I broke out my DeWalt drill bit set and they went through the stuff with absolutely no problem.

Interestingly...... I also tried some Harbor Freight bits, and they worked too. Normally, I hate those things, as they are set off center in the hex fitting, the hex fitting cracks, and the others just plain wobble when properly chucked. But this time......... they worked. Go figure!!

I have several Milwaukee tools that I bought when I built my house. I've grown to hate the hammer drill, as the chuck won't hold the drill bit tightly after a few minutes of drilling. Finally went out and bought a Bosch Bull Dog. Love it!!

Truly a gentleman.  I don't know if he ever realized just how many people he touched.  The last picture he texted me was of him and his grandson goofing off eating breakfast.  Loved it!

RIP John
