So I'm more productive that I was a few days ago...much more productive especially when designing on CAD software. That is thanks to another blog here;
where I recently purchased a 26" flat monitor that now easily displays four full viewpoints of my projects on one huge screen with all of my toolbars on my laptop. All this for $169.99 including shipping. I'm not usually one for plugging other websites or buying from China, but in the case of a monitor I'm not sure there are any alternatives. Thank you technology and mass production for making tools cheaper, higher quality and more accessible. I may not follow this business model, but there are certainly great advantages to a world of commerce that raises the standard of living for all who participate.
On to aluminum guitars...
Paul is a bass player looking for a new guitar so he posted in his blog that he'd trade a trumpet for a guitar. I offered to build him one (this would be my second) and he asked about aluminum. It is certainly possible and has been done before, but this got me thinking. Once the basics are designed, producing several would be relatively easy. So after the ITG, I will be ordering a massive block of aluminum and making chips.
Other notes...Paul and I spent Sunday rebuilding the drive train on my 1997 Bravada and my back, neck and shoulders are still sore two days later. Maybe I should have bought that vehicle lift that sold at auction last year for $200?
Have a nice Tuesday and remember to enjoy spring if you have it since we're still buried in snow here!
