    Yep, an auger on the back of the tractor, as little hard manual labor as possible.

    LOL!!!!
    Why do ya think I practice "Smarter than harder", because I did not practice what I preached. I could not dig two post hole's by hand much less 130. And yes, for thirty years did I preached that to my employees.

    Everything that can be done on the lower wing halves has been done, need the ply and carbon to finish it up. Made a vac box for the back side of the chop saw out of a Savox servo box. It don't look like much but does the job nicely, it is only taped in place and after some use if it continues to work appropriately it will get more permanently attached. It works well enough that very small pieces get sucked away so I will get a small screen to go in front of it.

    Spent the last two days building a chicken pen for the wife. And today she brought home ten chicks, laying hens, so we will have plenty of eggs in a couple months. If by chance a rooster got tossed in some time down the road we'll have some chickens for the freeze.

    The plywood just showed up so I should be able to get those strips on anytime. This morning the tracking for the carbon sheet popped in showing a delivery date of Monday. So all in all a really good day.

    The laying hens, you bet. The Ducks, uh, probably not. That will depend on how attached the wife get's to them.

    Finally got some time to slice up the plywood, then start installing it. I love the new chop saw as much as I love the table saw. I need to clear out a few things to make it a little more roomy with them, but it works great as set up and not a speck of dust. I was going to cut the rib caps down in size about half way but the side to side movement was to much compared to not cut down so they'll go in as is.
