Thanks David :D
I didn't get anything done last week due to a funeral that was out of state.
Calves are dropping so that's slowing me down as well.
All set up for Alaska, looking forward to the trip in August 8)

Getting older sure seems to come with a lot of funerals :cry: Hate to hear that for anyone.
I did not remember you were a rancher. Hard to think of Florida as cattle country. Just goes to show how wrong perceptions can be.
I will be glad to see you and yours. By then I should have a good handle on where fish are at.

Fuzz, for sure most folks who visit us don't think of Florida as a big cattle producing state. Not the case, we produce about 2 million cattle a year.
Here's a couple of our knuckleheads mugging for a pic earlier this month.

Looking back those look like Kreg Tool screws you used to pull the bow together. If so did you find they worked better than other screws?

Those look like well feed beasts. I know nothing about cattle or horses for that matter. The wife is the horse expert in the family.

Really looks good. None of my builds have looked that neat.

I am familiar with Kreg screws but the ones in photo are a little different. The head is bigger. We probably use 250,000 screws like the one in the photo per year.

John, Michael, Doug, David and Jeff- I sure appreciate the positive comments and support 8)

John, our shop is about 9,000 square feet. I'm going to meet with a developer on Wednesday to review a proposal to build a 15,000-17,000 square foot building. It's a big step, not sure yet what I want to do :doh:
