    Hello MBers,

    I have been lurking for a while learning and getting ideas and having them shot down almost as quickly as I came up with them thanks to this excellent forum.

    My background in machine shop, mechanical engineering and machine design says that I should know which end of a hammer to use to tighten a bolt, but I am not practiced at bikes and the maint. necessary to run them. I am sure that this will come along nicely as I walk my soon to be ordered MB home a couple of times.

    I make biodiesel, (this will be my 4th year), to supplement the home heating oil at 25% with no furnace mods and for my car. I learned everything about making BioD from another forum so I do have alittle practice at typing.

    You have excellent organization to this forum and I hope that all will help to keep it so.

    Thank you for the welcomes,
    I like you guys, your tool boxes have the same tools as mine. Metrinch wrenches, calibrated hammers, prop-wash brushes and smoke shifters!!!! :lol:

    Since our fearless leader has been kind enough to supply us with some money, I feel that I should do what he asks to help stimulate the economy. I think that a dax 70 and a Schwinn Pt Beach Cruiser should fit the bill. I will let you know when it gets ordered and how things progress.:rolleyes:

    The forum from which I learned how to make BioD has grown exponentially this last year. When I joined 4 years ago, the archives were huge. Now, new members get on and just start asking questions, the same ones over and over.
    I wish to urge members and newbies alike to help keep this forum organized, Great job Augi and moderators. Keep up the good work.

    Well, time to do more research on tires, lights, tools etc. so that I can help our economy.
