I finally healed up after my little shop accident and got back to work. I'm not going to make the September Maxton meet but October will be fine. The tail fairing and battery have been installed. The shifter has been fabricated and installed with the side stand. I have a couple more brackets and chain covers  to make along with a small chin fairing to protect the front of the gas tank. Then, it will all come apart for final welding and gussets...

Typical dumb as* mistake Kent. I was cutting some angle iron in the vise using the angle grinder with a 4 inch cut-off wheel.



The steel moved in the vise and I grabbed it with my left hand to steady it while holding the grinder with the right. When I got to the last 1/8 inch, the blade grabbed the steel and it threw the grinder/cut-off wheel into my left forearm and then into my chest. It wrapped itself up in my t-shirt and I couldn't turn it off. As I reached down to pull the
plug, I saw this on the floor...



A quick trip to the emergency room and 9 stitches in my left forearm solved the problem :|

Well, I wish I could blame this on you and Randy, Kent, but I own this one :cheers: I still remember to never take piece of freshly welded metal for Mr (no working nerves in his hands) Randy Nelson  :-o LOL, I learned that the hard way too!

Us clumsy ones are entertaining, that's for sure!  I was amazed they could find room in the palm of my right hand for 43 stitches....when all I was doing was reaching for an engine that was tipping off the cart.  When the doctor asked "what are these grooves between these two bones?", I told him, "I'm pretty sure 6mm by 1.0 thread pitch."

This reminds me of my "get rich quick plan" for a line of "Tim from Tooltime" tools:
- a hammer with insulated handle and slide in blue ice tube....so you can pop the handle bottom cap and stick your smashed thumb in the ice tube
- a screwdriver with a roll of pull-out butterfly bandages in the handle....nice for puncture wounds
- a box end wrench assortment with velcro loop strips near each end...to splint broken fingers right onto the wrench
- a step ladder with quick detachable back legs....that turn into crutches
- a chainsaw with quick disconnect starter cord...that serves as a tourniquet

...there must be more. 

Good to see your project going again, and nice to see pics of your shop!
Thanks!

Thanks Jim, this is the first time I've had stitches from an accident in my 55 years!
Kent, I do know better than to stand around you when you're flogging a build (SOP) at the last minute LOL. I special ordered that linkage from Speedway Motors in "Airtech" purple, I figured you'd like it  :roll:
