Wayne,
I think we have enough stuff hanging around. I am not sure what use we would have for the Lindsay. I myself would like to see it head down the road, to someone that needs it as a unit or perhaps parts. But that should be a board decision, and we may have to add that to the agenda..

So Big Joe is dumping Lindsay for a younger higher-output model?

Mike,
Do you have a plan for returning the toolbox to Big Joe?

No. There is some storage in the new compressor. A lot of trash was in the old box. If we decide a box is needed, commercial ones are available that would work excellent for us. And be more finger friendly than the old lid..

This is a good time to come up with a new product: The diesel diaper. For those units that are not quite housebroken yet. Fits the model T too.

That's Airman First Class (A1C) Big Joe Tampier.  Of course the paint job will have to change to AF Blue and Silver.  I'll even donate a set of wings for the front!

As a former fly boy, I'll chip in for the proper colors......  I'll even come up with some kind of tail feathers for the pmpennage.

Just remembered, I can also donate some landing gear downlock pins with the "remove before flight" tags still on and a Sidewinder arming key and safety pin.  Probably should have a proper ejection seat, harness, and helmet installed while we're at it.  I'll start working on it ...........

A proper ejection seat is something that Big Joe is missing.  Sometime's it's difficult to get down off that lofty height.
