I was a fan of the Supermarine float plane racers.

A good investment in one of these for racing is to get the liner chromed and fitted. Bob Oge did 3 for me and they were nicely fit. The nickle plating they come with is my least favorite but will last until you burn a lean run. The pistons are soft as an added benefit so get a few spares if you intend to do some racin.


Repeat: SSR has a stock engine rule. Re-plating an LA to get rid of the nickle plating is technically illegal. OTOH, Come on down, let's race!  Grin

Hey Brother Randy!  Wonderful to hear from you!!  Your caption says it well, a VERY long time.  I've missed ya.
Sorry to learn of your problems, but now maybe I can whup you.(?)  Okay, probably not.
I was blessed to be able to find a hole in the fence at age 60, drew on my 401K for two years, then hit the SS.  I did the math, and I've made more from them by taking it early than if I had waited.  My (advanced) age had everything to do with it.  Getting out in 2000 verses now was a distinct advantage monetarily, at least for me.
Wish I could be up there with you when you start working on the two handed method, might be a way I could help. take good care of you, the wife, and three daughters - that's the main thing right now.  God's best to you, my friend,

Hey Brother Will, good to be here. Life is strange but God is good. I have had the passing thought that had I forgone marriage I could be free as a breeze, But I'm convinced not only was I supposed to marry Robin, but that God has given me the job of raising these girls and loving them as my own. This I am doing with His help.

Now get this, they ALL like the smell of dope!!!! Not only do I get no complaints, they come down to sniff when I start covering!!!!

Actually you max social security at 70. For every year after 66 you get an additional 8%. At 70 you get social security at 132%. If Randy can do it then more power to him. Every penny means something. My brother just retired as a Postmaster officially done on March 30th. He is 76 and believe it or not he still gets a raise in social security every year. Why, because he is still working and contributing to it. There are no limits after 66 retiring  early is a downer, about $14,700 cap on earnings than you lose money from your SS check. if you continue working till you hit 66 no limit.


Yes, 70 is what I'm holding out for, the difference between now and then is almost a G note! Good info on the earnings cap. I am shooting to have the homestead paid off and it that happens I should do quite well with SS and some occasional side work.

Glad to hear you are still with us.  Yes life sucks at times.  Before retiring make sure to get a complete physical.  I was paid a bonus to retire from Ma Bell and had to wait until 6 months after my 65th birthday for my social security.  Also you can work part time as long as you don't make too much money.  Those jokers at the social security office thinks the money is coming out of their pocket.  My wife retired and then with out warning the jerks told her she was making too much.  I mean us on retirement have lost at least two cost of living raises so some one could go play golf and have their multiple vacations.  Now to see how bad the next 4 years will get even though I voted for President Trump.  (Adm. you have my permission to delete any part that up sets you,  DOC Holliday)

Any if you do retire early make sure you have all the nuts and bolts in the proper order.   Hoff

Nothing offensive here!

If you are making a sacrificial copy and want to build more than one on the plans use Glad Press and Seal as it is nearly transparent and nothing sticks to it.

HOWEVER the sticky stuff that seems pretty low tack at first will, after a few weeks, develop an inseparable bond with the paper making the plans unable to be saved long-term in clean condition.

I need to try parchment.  Not all are the same translucency, but I have not compared brands side-by-side.  I use it for *GASP* _baking_ on a fairly regular basis.  So much easier than greased and dusted pans.
