Re: Trade titanium bolts

And this isn't even aerospace, dealing in 3 axis where shit falls out of the sky! And many more lives are on the line. Well, not that many lives are on the line in my line of work.

Re: New potential products for 510's and Datsun from Mattnde

Does $30.00 sound like a good price with free shipping? Matt D. Yeah, that seems pretty reasonable. To save a lot of effort, I can tell you how all of your future product launches are going to go: MattD: Hey, anybody interested in this new wing-ding? Community: YES!!! MattD: OK, here's my design.
