    It is still sitting under my bench:msp_ohmy:

    Before the GTG I will take it apart and maybe see what I am going to need. I know it only has 90psi on compression. That is as far as I got with it. Also have its little brother PM700 next to it. Not sure hwat it need as well.

    I am in deep with a stump grinder refurbish now that i bought last week to try and make some coin with this summer. It never ends. I get started on one thing and something else comes along bigger and better and well I go to that and then some one brings something over to fix and then I start all over again wondering what I worked on last of my own:msp_confused:

    Then the phone will ring and hey can you come cut this tree down and it starts all over again:laugh:

    Chelsea....oh man, lots of memories in that neck of the woods! I'm going to try like hell to make it. I live only an hour away east on Hwy 30. Do you live on the old Upah place? That address looks pretty close to where that might be. I used to work at Froning's in Chelsea during the 80's...I'll see if I can get the Mono to come to life...I need to hear that bark again.

    Don't forget

    to stop and pick me up on your way :msp_thumbsup: I thought the great flood that happens every 5-10yrs wiped Chelsea off the map. Always stopped at Rube's :rock: in Montour on my way to IA City when going to school at ISU.

    The Iowa River put a dent in the population after the last one, however the Silver Dollar is still afloat. Every small town needs a watering hole...Rubes, now that is a slab of steak. :rock:
