    Marketplace for scale model spare parts

    Personally, I think that development of a database is cumbersome and quite likely unnecessary. I also dealt with Larry Hawkins on a few occasions; I received much needed parts, and sent my spares in return. I have a pretty good handle on what I have in my stash (upwards of 150 kits), and the mention of a particular kit is often enough to spark the "Aha" - I have that kit (or I built that kit). I'm not a computer guru, but it seems to me that a subtopic in the Vendors and Traders Board might fit nicely and be relatively easy to implement. Instead of listing what parts/kits are available, make it for parts requests only. The rest can be dealt with through PMs. Once a parts quest is successful, it would be the requestors responsibility to remove the thread. Just my two cents.

    Way OT.....Low Back Pain

    I had compression fractures of L4 and L5 35 years ago. The left side of my butt had a "buzz" (like when your foot falls asleep) for over two years. My orthopedic surgeon told me to be thankful I could still walk. Some days are better than others, but I've dealt with lower back pain for much of my life - it sucks!

    Make the others jealous

    Thanks, Kevin. Starrett makes great stuff; I have quite a few of their tools from my machinist days. Getting that pin vise down to "zero" is not as easy as it sounds.

    Make the others jealous

    Kevin, will that pin vise close enough to hold the #80 drill?
