    I did something like that back in the day in my rebuilt cars. But it was pure analog: Protractor with a pivoting arm and weight.

    I kicked the idea of carbon fiber around, too, but I keep coming back to flammability. It seems really hard to find fire-resistant epoxy.

    I once gave a burning burial to a 16 foot boat I had built...

    I like that! (Well not really, but I'm willing to try).

    I had a cystoscopy without anesthesia. Talk about embarrassing.

    Shrug on the perforations. I lost a childhood best friend at 55, and three other good friends in 2019 through 2020 to this. None of them liked doctors. They fought hard after the fact and lost.

    That is astounding. I'm over here marking out plywood.

    I've done quite a bit of fiberglass/composite work on boats, but carbon fiber just seemed one step too far. Maybe I'll rethink that.

    Thanks Ken. I suppose it is a "fools rush where angels fear to tread" question, but I've kicked around the idea too.

    LOL. I always wanted a Heathkit of any kind, but I never could afford them when I was a kid. Even then I was a scratch builder.

    LOL

    In my younger years I'd put out 30 100-pound square bales each morning for our small herd. Now if you could drop that from a cub, that would be something.
