When I did kitchen floor, I hunted for floor squeaks and drove in wood screws into subfloor - it eliminated squeaks and made me enjoy new floor even more!

i've been staring at corel paintshop pro and corel draw for 3 days straight now, but it's definitely turned into "what i'm working on"

i'm turning the wall on the top, into the wall on the bottom



im scratching my head as to why on earth i picked such an elaborate ampersand. i'm going to have an interesting time cutting that out on my antique scroll saw.



AND ALSO...

turning this wall:


into this wall:


I got both designs approved today and i have 10 calendar days to complete both. the rock will go end to end, but they will do that themselves at a later date. i actually just need to make it look like this for now:


either way, i have a lot of materials to order and a lot letters and stuff to cut out.

the most ornate ampersand i've ever had the pleasure of cutting out. it took 3 and a half hours and i still have some filing to do. i had to take the blade out 20 times to cut the ten holes



it's "MaxMetal" with a brushed gold finish. 25" x 30". I got lucky. If it was 1/4" bigger, i would have needed to modify the throat of my vintage scroll saw. i like old tools. it's even got the original belt. kinda flaps and wiggles as it goes around.

anyways... 46 more letters to go..

Today it was time to do a tune up on my baby. As usual, I went for all US made parts.




I needed new plug wires. So I got some Packard 440 with braided copper core straight off the roll. And of course, you ain't no real man if you don't make your own "sparkler plug" wires.




Next was a high resistance 3.0 ohm ignition coil. I got the Pertronix "Flame Thrower". The spark from these babies resembles lightning. Never use these with resister wires or plugs. They'll be glowing red if you do.




And of course, what tune up with be complete without new points, condenser, rotor and cap from the good folks at Colt Firearms? Yes, Colt makes distributors and ignition parts. The original Colt distributor caps were said to be white milk glass. Nowadays, they are white nylon. But you can still see the fire whiling around inside once the sun goes down. If you want an engine to last a 100 years, you need a Colt distributor. I always make sure my baby is firing with a Colt.




Also, I know how a lot of folks like to run Champion plugs in their PT's. But for my baby, I decided to try a set of Autolite 3136 plugs. On these flat head engines, I've always liked the Autolites better than the standard Champion D16 plugs. But that's just my preference. And remember, I don't drag race.




PS: If you decide to run a Colt distributor on your machine, remember to gap the points at 0.18 to 0.22. A lot of folks mistakenly use a 0.15 gap. But that's the gap for the engines that use a magneto. These Colt distributor are "new style" and run off a 6 or even 12 volt battery. So the gap is different.

I salute you for the USA parts. I'm the same way. Nothing wrong with auto lite plugs. Check out the AR series plugs when you get a chance.
