    Man, I really enjoyed getting out of my little shop for a few weeks.........but it's great to be back to work. :)

    I take off a couple of times a year.......once for Bonnaroo, and again for a Sundance. Both of those "vacations" are nothing but hard, non stop work. This get-a-way was different. I worked on my house a lot......but at a leisurely pace. We got a bunch of stuff done.......and rested well too.

    Now........what's on your bench?????? :D

    I've got a few MS261s

    Wow, I would love to see your shop in person, Randy! Maybe I'd learn a few organizational skills, err maybe how to build a bigger shop. Haha! Here's what I'm looking at. Oh and a picture of my shop after a tornado went through.

    Mastermind, what is the bulk of your business? People from all over the country send you there saws to be ported? Or do you buy new saws port and sell or buy used saws port and sell?

    Do all your saws get ported or do you ever just build stock ones?
