Default Howdy from the Land of Oz

Just wanted to say hello from the home of the Yellow Brick Road, the World's Largest Ball of Twine and the first confirmed home of the Jackalope. That's right, we the great people of Kansas decided to cross a deer with a bunny and create the world's best mythical creature next to a unicorn.

I just joined the Stak because I decided to add my 47th "in progree" project in the shape of a '38 F12. Since I sleep a whole 6 hours a day, I figured that was more than enough and I could cut it back by an hour or two to add another project to my life.

All joking aside, I am a professional mechanic, currently working on machine tools. I have spent the rest of my adult life as an aircraft mechanic from upkeep on airliners to restoring '20s era military planes.

I will probably have a lot of questions as classic tractors are new to me. What I have to trade is 20 years knowledge in aircraft and I can help diagnose CNC machines if someone is having problems. If I can be a help on either of these, don't hesitate to contact me.

Look forward to learning new things and meeting some new friends...

Chris

Welkom on board Chris,

I only know the story the Wizzard of Oz.

It’s a story about a little girl and her little dog named Totto.

All kinds of things to see in it like an huge old hay rake, a tin men, lion, a scared bird men, and all kinds of dancing, flowers, plants, etc.......

Welcome.........But as MOST people KNOW, A Jackalope is NOT a cross between a DEER & a Jackrabbit. It IS a cross of a Jackrabbit & a ANTELOPE ......Thus the name "JACKALOPE". Just had to get that bit of trivia straightened out.
