Freud, Ray, Thanks for the new post they're Great. I was wondering how they fasten the screen mess to the oil pickups.
Thanks Rick

Rick, I haven't seen the pickups after the screens were attached, if they are attached.

I'll take a look tomorrow and post a reply on Landracing.com even before I do a foto post on target550.com

Thanks for asking.

Rick, I did the fotos of the screens today. I'll include them in the next www.target550.com post.

The screens are held in place by a tiny wire section that pierces the sides of the screen and are welded to both

sides of the oil pickups.

Thanks for asking.

Richard2. The method of retaining the screens in the oil pick up tubes is answered in the most recent

post on www.target550.com

Sorry I hadn't informed u sooner.

Thanks for the question.

Check the NEWS section of www.target550.com for an update on the students from Granite Falls, WA Manufacturing class.

The Everett Herald newspaper did a story relating to their trip to Houston for the Shell Eco Marathon. They left yesterday and

the event starts Friday.

I was thinking after reading this article that when I was in high school (JR & Sr.) were  in the same school. I would say close to 90% of the male students took at least 3 years of auto shop, yep even a couple of girls. I took every shop course they had including drafting and print shop.

I don't think most of these are available in schools today. I also thinking they are missing a great way to learn how to do things instead of paying someone else to fix it. After leaving California and moving to Utah I see a lot of kids that have grown up around farms and were part of the daily life. They had chores and helped to keep it going, they also have school and sports that came first before fun and games. A lot of mechanical things had to be done daily and I see the difference in their attitudes. I really enjoy seeing this over the big city life styles of today.

Whats the general consensus regarding the number of cycles a Cleco is good for?

Freud;

I have never seen one 'worn out". They are usually damaged by mishandling well before that. Some are ruined by epoxy or sealant, they are dropped on the floor and bent, or pulled out without being fully depressed, which wears off the undercut shoulder. Of course they can even be left out to rust-- poor workmanship can ruin an anvil, after all.

Taken care of, a Cleco should last a lifetime.
