    Re: DIY sliding block for C1 Green Monster

    Find another 8x10 and go take pictures with it. Might be nice and pretty, but if it's not ready for work with nothing more than a general clean-up, let the present owner worry his soul over it. I...

    Down here in NC, cotton socks are cheap and do very nicely in most cases. I found that wearing 2 pairs is OK. It's rare to be in a condition where you could get a dangerous frostbite. I should have...
