while being sequestered from my garage i have made some steps in the right direction. most of which has been reading anything i can find to help my motors run faster and stronger but some stuff has been in the skill development department. this week i have managed to get some tools that i have no idea how to use and will most likely land me in the ER while "figgurin it out". through some swaps and jaw-waggin i have managed to acquire a torch outfit and an old Altlas lathe, total cost being $60 and some gas money. for the win.
