Re: Had to evacuate because of forest fire.

The rain came Friday in about 2:30 AM. Some of the people took it upon themselves to try to put out the big fire threatening their homes and the city of Molalla.

Re: Had to evacuate because of forest fire.

Looks like we are in for lightning a day before the rain. The smoke is really bad right now.

Had to evacuate because of forest fire.

We were rated at level 3 for forest fire danger last Tuesday. Today we are still rated a level 3. Tired and praying for rain, which we should get Tuesday sometime. Missed 4 days of work, but the house is still there. I go about once a day to see if the house is still there. This morning I drove from...

Re: Huron #8-13FD/3P soft jaw boring tool

Nice tool. If I hadn't just bought 3 internal 3 point micrometers, I would buy this. As Colonel Sherman T Potter said when they delivered light bulbs instead of underwear to the 4077: "Both useful, but hardly interchangeable". Steve But the internal 3 point internal micrometers are often used with ...

The price from Haas is probably for a new computer and the latest software.

Haas shows an e when running.

1997 Haas will show an e in the lower left corner of the screen. Then will add another moment later and keep doing that until you have a row of e across the bottom of the screen.
