Where has the time gone.

Been a slow month here at the OSS as work on the rig has come to a screeching halt in the 20 degree weather. With the cold keeping us from getting things done on the car we have been working with Mrs. OSS on the shack, cleaning out some extra "stuff" that has been laying around (that way when its nice in the spring we will have it done!) and planning our May jaunt to Astoria to see one of our dear friends.

On the automotove front we were able to get a nice BR2, mentioned in an eariler post, and have it rebult by the distributor master Ed Fall at Vintage Werks. This guy does not *F* around when it comes to rebuilds. His units are stripped down to the bones, even the badge is removed and riveted back on. TO top off this extreme service Ed also plates all the bobs and bits... not gona get this kind of service from other out there. Gota remember you get what you pay for.

We also spotted a Judson (36hp) hiding out in a rickety old shop and were able to pick it up for a song and dance. This little darling had suffered some damage in its long life and needed particular work done to get her back in serviceable condition. So the OSS enlisted two of our buddies the "tool maker" and the "machinist" to do a little magic on her. In there dark and dungy laboratory these masters were able to make the little judson as good as new.

That is that as far as the OSS goes here are a few pics of the rebuilt BR2 for your viewing enjoyment.
