It's nuts. 3/4 CDX plywood is over $100 a sheet here. My friend that works for a sawmill and timber company said they're making more a week than they used to a month. No sign of things sowing down either.

Used cars are also through the roof. The owner of a large dealership locally told me to seriously consider selling your car outright if you have a 16-18 nicer used model. Then wait 6-8 mos and buy a 20-21 low mile used for the exact same money when the bottom falls out. He said the flood of new cars is 30-60 days out waiting on computer chips.

You will find the 460's very useful. John, show us a picture.

Prices are skyrocketing on steel, lumber and other durable goods. My neighbor complained about spending $50 for a sheet of 3/8" plywood a couple of days ago and the wife had to pay $75 per sheet for 3/4 ply this week. I also researched some 2" 4-1/2 threaded rod for her yesterday and about fell out of my chair when I saw the prices.

J and J jab yesterday and Iím still alive. I just have to say if you guys are in your fifties or sixties you have been mass vaccinated with the rest of us. Obviously we lived through them and it eradicated many deadly illnesses. The problem with this virus is it was politicized from the start. I suggest anyone that hasnít got it yet reconsider getting it.
worth quoting. I can't agree more. I think fauci is dipshit and I think both parties have done stupid things in the order of politics regarding it but in the end it is about  getting past this and minimizing future outbreaks. Most of us have hundreds of immunizations throughout our lives. This just one  more.

Finally figured out why the parts orders for the D5 undercarriage kept coming wrong. The track frame has been stretched to 8 rollers from 7 somewhere in it life. Joys of finding parts for old junk.  :lol_hitting:

Had a small steel order this week. They're pretty proud of it these days. Not much of a bundle showed up for $500!
