Yeah, I've sent the BOC out bulging so badly that I wondered if I'd get turned away, but never before.

My local USPS has given me a hard time about that gap.

Mind the gap!

Tom, looking at your take, what are the bolt things in the upper left of your pic? I have a bunch, but have no idea what they are. Feel like I should know...

They look sorta like cotter wedges, photographed flat side down. But I could be wrong.

Yes they are cotter pins, aka cotters. I still deal with them occasionally.

The Box!

It landed just as I was leaving for the weekend, but I had time to do a quick grab, filled it up, and sent it on its way this morning. Pictures in case these don't show: Box, and Grab




There's a lot of fun stuff in there, but I only took the stuff I have legitimate plans for:



Thanks!

Gonna try to get the box out tomorrow. Wschruba had to back out because of scheduling issues. Waiting on Tricky to get me his address before I can ship it out. Some good stuff in there. There were a bunch of things in ziplock sandwich bags that were falling apart so I rebagged them in heavy duty bags and collected all the little nuts and bolts that shook loose to the bottom of the box and bagged them too.

OK,now pics

Arrived.






My take.



Boxed back up,taped and ready for the Trickys adress.





I added as much as I could from my spare parts bin and it was like a puzzle trying to get it all back in there.

This box is heavy.

Oregon coast, whereabouts?

Answering questions like this is a legitimate way to get your post counts up, and potentially sets you up to meet some other C&Ver's in person.

Folks, good on ya if you're taking the initiative and sending along to the "next available in line", but make sure the Crapmaster knows so the lineup can be edited to avoid confusion.

Thanks! He actually let me know, but I was travelling and unable to do much at the time. Both of them let me know, I asked them to take care of it as I could not get things updated. It happens.

I swear someone asked to be added to the list while I was travelling and I don't see it. (after 2cam16) If you wanted to be added to the list or back to the list, please let me know. Thanks!
