IMG_1755.JPGHad a great weekend!  Sunday's Indy 500 was a tad toasty at 92 degrees but we survived.  This week is filled with building 3 pistol cases.  I have a friend that is retiring as a state arson investigator and his Barretta and his badges will go in it.

Mowed, then mowed some more; Watched the race. Drank a LOT of ice water & tea with 3 consecutive days @92o or >. Went to one yard sale Saturday...came home with some projects...pics in the Handtools Forum forthcoming.

 

Today started out great until about 1/2 way to H.S.; truck wigged out showing "cam timing/ phaser issues on the left bank; 5.4L gas sounded more like a diesel...dropped girls off for swim; limped it in to town and dropped it off at the shop. I spent ~$2700 2-1/2 years ago having timing chain, phasers, gears, etc. replaced:angry:...MAYBE has 30k miles since.:angry::angry:

 

More mowing and various other projects...remainder TBD pending on trucks ICU/hospital stay.

I am all jacked up, sheesh. You got me again Gramps, first it was pToad mixed with Newman, and now I got the wrong day. Thanks Gramps.

Things will get better once Monday is over unless it's like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day:lol:

made an IDPA Carry Optics box yesterday, for use at an upcoming match where they need to make sure guns with optics fit in the box.  some scraps i had laying around.

 

next week i'll get a mess of pre-finished plywood to make 5 bookcases for my office.

 

the box:

 

didn't have any hinges the right size, so blue tape to the rescue.  only 6 shooters will be shooting that type gun, so it only has to last for 6 test fittings.

 

right side of the front has a 1" dimension from the corner to the opening, and then the opening is 7" long.
