    As I know that these kind of opportunities only come up every so often I will just mention that we have 3200 sq ft, loading docks and concrete...….

    With so many available for adoption, including myself, we need to apply for funds to start a CPK foster home for wayward children, which includes a 5000 square foot “arts and crafts” shop. But, can it be on a deserted tropical island with perfect waves?

    I was going to say that uncle Matty would have to pretend to be the adult to keep it all together, but I think Jo is really the only one with the proven skills to manage this “herding cats” project. Mike

    ^ A/C....it’s so hot here today, I about got heat stroke cutting the grass on a riding mower. I come inside:

    Wife: “Are you going to weed eat now? It really needs it!”

    Me: “I can’t. I could die.”

    Wife: “ I want the weed eating done!”

    You know how the rest went.

    Happy 4th!

    I don’t think I like you any more Bob? Maybe you can post a picture of one of your collection for the 4th?

    No no no. If there's a potato knife available out there to grossly overpay for, *I'm* the one who'll be doing the overpaying. o_O

    There will be no HDMC here. The HDMC is a Medium Chopper IMHO. The "true" Heavy Chopper (HC - that is the actual CPK model name) is a model few of which were made (almost all were protos) but which, much earlier, preceded the HDMC in being referred to as the Heavy Chopper (HC). It is third down from the top.

    And it is the model name used on Nathan's website that describes those few Heavy Choppers that were made some time ago, not the HDMC.
