Yup. Except I don't actually rub my own elbows. I have peons that get their elbows dirty so I don't have to.

So nice to see such a carefree thread in a build challange. People tend to get so competitive during these. NTIC.

I don't think anyone cares about any of the builds that much Tony....there haven't been many viewings or postings on most of them, including mine, where 5 of the 7 posts on it are mine idunno
I'm not sure why I'm even posting this on your thread since I only really care about my build, not yours.....meh! :|

L8r,
Dave F.

I managed to wrangle an hour or so of free time tonight to work on my challenge instrument. I mixed up some HHG put it in the pot and waited 1/2. Went to glue. . . oops forgot to plug the pot in. So I figured While I wait, I'd tell you that I still don't care.

I bought a small microwave for the shop and use it almost exclusively to heat water for the glue pot. I can have the HHG ready to go in less than 10 minutes that way.

Who cares? Steve and I are talking about glue!

BTW, I hate you for reminding me about the girls and their cup!

In all honesty, I found myself in an very uncharacteristically caring mood, but then you went on vacation.... and so did my mood.
Good luck with your build, though, Tony. I'm sure there are LOTS who can't wait to see how your double-neck Zither/Banjo turns out.
