Hello All... One word sums it up...HOT Other than that, not much going on. Was nice to see the progress on my Wayne 866 at Dad's yesterday. The addition of the deco globe holder turned out really well. It will be nice to see it on there when it's done as it was formerly a non-globe unit. Happy Birthday Loyd! Darin
So I am out of element on this one and would like your input. Cleaning out an old house an saved a dozen or so copies or a magazine called the "Shell News" all from between 1953 and 1958 along with some 1950's copies of the "Wrangler". The Shell News appears to be a corporate magazine for employees but they have fantastic vintage photos and illustrations. The Wrangler appears to be a division newsletter for Shell for the West TX/NM area. I am having trouble finding out how to value. Not finding much in the way of resources for this kind of material. Any ideas?

Afternoon all. Glad you got home Ryan, we got 13 in. in one day 2010 I think and its referred to as the 100 year flood. So we don't have to ever worry about that again--Right??
Same old weather report only difference I don't handle the heat as well, I think about the years I spent in a tire factory curing dept. with 100 plus year round temps and wonder how or better still why. LOL! There wasn't the baking sun which really makes a difference. I guess.
Well paying even a deposit on something that hasn't been produced yet is bad business. I got in early on a drum clip shotgun many years ago that never came to production. I'm still waiting on my money back. But I have faith in Jack and his book ,I would be in also.
Hey Jack, You mentioned having to sell off most of your collection to finance the printing of this book. Have you instead considered doing a pre-sell? Sounds like a bunch of guys on here (myself included) plan to buy the book. If we are all willing to put up the money in advance (and I would), it would help defer your publishing expenses and not create so much up-front financial hardship from having to raise capital. We all want the book and I bet the majority of guys on here would be willing to pony up the funds in advance to make sure the book gets printed. Just a thought....
Morning all. Hot here like most everywhere else in the midwest. I was up early this morning to replace a couple of high bay lights in the shop. Even at seven thirty this morning the heat up in the attic was about more than I wanted. When I built the shop fourteen years ago I installed metal halide high bay lights that I bought cheap from a local high school that had just pulled them out of their gymnasium. Over the years those things have proved to be not so cheap as I was constantly replacing bulbs and ballasts in them, not to mention the 400 watts times 8 that burned when they were on. I finally decided to start replacing them with new high bay LED's but I have to do it a couple at a time to avoid the sticker shock. The big LED replacements are close to $200 each now (which is quite a bit less than they were when they first come out) but they are supposed to last for years and only burn 115 watts each. I'm half way there with replacing the old ones and the new LED's are sure an improvement. Ryan, sounds like the rain was crazy up north. I haven't been paying attention so wonder if they got that much up on Lake of the Woods around our cabin? It's been a few years since we had a flooding rain there but when it happens our road to the cabin is two feet underwater for a while.Got stranded in there for a week once with only boat access to civilization, which really wasn't a bad thing for me.... Have a great week all, stay cool....GB
We too have a hot, hot day ahead of us. Was going to cut the grass but by the time I walked out to the shed I was completely soaked, so I turned around and went back into the shop. The grass has waited a couple of days to be cut an another day or two is no big deal, at least to me.
I see Jim found some cabinets for his auto body collection, I was thinking a two gallon can. Ryan, glad to hear you made it home safely, upper Michigan got slammed also with a lot of serious damage from the rain. This year with the rain is truly troublesome.
We had an eventful trip home yesterday from our cabin in Northern Wisconsin. Areas near us received over 11 inches of rain in 1 day, with lots of rain the day before as well. Roads are all washed out and travel is near impossible. We ended up driving about an hour south in order to head west then back north again. There was one stretch of road where we drove through about 12-15 inches of water covering the road for about a half mile. I was not concerned about the road washing out as it was just a low spot where the swamps overflowed covering the road.
