Brian,

I think I'm going to have to get a cart like that with the jack and wood offsets. I actually already have 2 jacks like that for ATVs, I just have to get the cart from Harbor Freight. I imagine the PIII is about to get pretty heavy and I just put my deposit down on the King Tiger so I'm probably going to need it for that too.

Brian,

Your photo of your shop area is a great comment on keeping a clean, tidy work area.

BTW, are those anti-static electric discharge matts? I don't hear enough about how important those are when working with the electronics to prevent wiping the memory chips and micro-processors in the audio and motion control modules.

Tom, it’s easier to find 2.5mm hardware with a clean floor!

The mats are rubber floor mats from Home Depot and a floor traffic rug they are good for protecting the floor and pad my knees when I’m crawling around on the floor.

How about a 1.6mm nut? I've lost too many to count. :oops:
