  A --  Don't know how you missed it either Shawn. You want that book bad. LOL

  B -- The 60 days is for you to think more. Only the name of the project is required at this time. No prints or anything else is required. Just your name and the name of the project.

  C -- Just a YES is required to answer that one.

  "Billy G"


For C: I already asked that, the entry must be during the first 30 days...  you must have both projects submitted initially.


That's what Billy G told me previously , right Bill?

 Yes, but no at the same time. Here's why. I extended the time frame of the design phase to 60 days to help those who were having problems. You can enter as many times as you like but all entries must be in the 60 day period.

 "Billy G"


 Design Phase -- Sept. 1,2019 to Oct. 30, 2019 --- 60 Days.

 Build Phase -- Oct.31, 2019 to Dec. 14, 2019. --- 45 days.

 Winner announced Jan. 1, 2020

Don't sweat getting old, you'll still do dumb shit, just slower.

An Optimist will tell you the glass is half full, the pessimist half empty, the engineer will say the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

I see a problem with your math, Bill.  The build phase is only 32 days, not 45.

I'm still hoping to take part in this... Im not sure what's expected with showing a design? I should be slowing down on the shop build in the next couple weeks and should be able to afford some shop time.

I know what you mean concerning the "Design".
I have a general idea in my head, but I'm definitely no artist. I can fumble around with the eMachineShop 2D CAD program to a degree, but not sure I can do a complete drawing.

You have 60 days to come up with the design. It will be posted here before you start. Terry, Ken or myself will OK the design. No one else can use it after that. It's yours alone.
 "Billy G"
Not sure, but the above from the rules seems to imply so or it might be what we already did by entering the challenge with our stated project.
Might need a little clarification from Billy G.

 You enter the challenge  any time in the 60 day design period by entering your name and project name. Sept. 1 to Oct. 30. is the time frame for everyone. You can start building anytime after you enter. The quicker you enter the more time you have to build.

 The actual build time is 45 days ( Oct. 31 to Dec. 14 ) As said, you may start any time after you post your entry. Can't make it any plainer than that.

Got a start on the dies for my press over the last couple days or should I say material prep.
Went to a local scrapyard yesterday to find some steel for it. Ended up finding a chunk of 1-1/4" thick plate that was left over from some CNC gas or plasma torch operation.
It's been quite the ordeal trying to square it up and cut it down to size with my little HF metal bandsaw and saws-all.
