This is more about shooting some hydrogen particles with 192 lasers and trying to put enough energy into them to fuse them together (hopefully generating more energy that gets put in; i.e. the ultimate power source?).

Either way.. if either is successful the world could change!

STEP BY STEP EASY INSTRUCTIONS:

For those too lazy to read:

Click this link:

http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/re...wnloadAgain.do

make an account.

download the software and tell it to run (it'll automatically give you the right version.. you don't have to figure anything out).

Once it is running go to the Team Adventure Rider page:
http://www.worldcommunitygrid.org/ms/team/viewMyTeam.do

Half way down that page is a button that says "JOIN THIS TEAM" (its a teal colored button).

Click it.

Sleep better knowing you are doing some good in the world

Footnote day?

As for the Mayan day of doom... The Maya were building rock piles in the jungle at the same time the Greeks were building coliseums and cathedrals. Not exactly the sharpest hominids on the planet.

Here's my $40 find from earlier in the summer. Bought it from a guy who was in at least his 60's, if not his 70's and he got it from his father. Looks worse now than when I picked it up...

Anybody else have an old Wilton machinist vise? Restored both of these recently.

Really nice 9400 Brian! A *great* deal for $40! Looks like it has been barely used!

There is a guy from GarageJournal.com that sells new jaw pads much cheaper than anywhere else if you want a set of hardened serrated pads to go with your smooth ($45). He also has copper jaw liners for the delicate stuff ($25). Yup, more than you paid for your vise. But considering that a new Wilton 400S (the current version of your vise) would cost over $500 delivered, and that yours will likely last another 45 years without issues, not a bad investment when you have a few extra bucks to put towards tools. I can PM you his email if you want...

If you unscrew the moveable jaw all the way and pull it out of the fixed jaw, you will see a date stamped into the bottom. My guess is mid to late sixties or so.

My 9450 was born June 1970:

Just down at Fay Myers picking up some Motorex for the 525 and some gearbox/final drive goo for the Guzzi.... and caught a glimpse of the outstanding ISDE Mexico graphics on the new ISDE models.

Internet photo, not from their sales floor btw...
