Holy cow!  20 clutch  bearings?  I don't know what you are building with 20 of those, but I'll bet it'll be good!


I might be able to make use of a couple of them, but I am not sure. I had first thought that they were regular bearings.  I'll have to give this a little thought.

Terry,

When do we post our finished project?

Ken



Initially I was going to say that you can post it anytime, but instead I will start a new thread on the 26th specifically for posting projects and for posting the voting poll. That will give everyone two days to get their projects posted with at least 3 photos by the end of the day on Saturday the 27th at which time I will create the poll and voting can begin. It would be best for that thread to contain ONLY the project entries and the poll, and no discussion until after the voting is done on the 30th.


I've been giving this contest a lot of thought over the last few weeks and I intend to get some input from everybody as to how many times per year we should do this as well as how long it should last. I am thinking that we might want to consider just four times per year and it runs for three months. This would make way for more in depth projects without a severe time crunch. It may not be as much of a 'challenge' that way, but that's okay. I think it is most important to set it up and run it the way the majority would like to have it. It might take a little while to get this flying the way we would like it.

 Got 20 cause that's the number he had in the sale. Tell me what you need and I'll get them to you.
