Quoted from Freeplay40:

Machine is still a while out and already have a long list of ramps I need to do, so can't really say if or when I will get to that one.

Add me to list if you are planning on doing demolition man. My skill shot ramp is the worst of my three, but I'd replace them all if I could!

Quoted from Freeplay40:

The plastic I use and the temperatures I form at do not really release much in the way of fumes. The more obvious causes are my High Cholesterol and smoking for 40+ years. Doctors immediately put me back on a much higher dose cholesterol med that I used to be on and I also tossed the smokes. Will be making better food choices as well. I consider myself very lucky.

My father-in-law passed away last week from his second stroke. Who knows if taking the first one more seriously would have made a difference, but why take the chance? Hope you fully recover, and as hard as the lifestyle changes might be, they are worth it!

Quoted from Freeplay40:

So...coloring ramps is a new process for me and it invariably takes a while to work out the bugs. Took me all day today to get the process right and that netted 5 "R" ramps that are now ready for final machining. Today...5 successful...10 failures. I want to get a rack of at least 12 of both ramps before I start finishing them for this first round. Will form some more R ramps tonight and tomorrow morning then finish coloring them tomorrow as well before I move on to the G ramp.
Whew! I guess if it was easy, everyone would do it! Late in the day when I took this photo and as usual, the red looks much richer in person.

Ouch, that's a tough failure rate. Too bad you can't color them before you do the forming, but I imagine that the heat and stretching would ruin any color you applied. Are the ones that didn't work ruined, or just the wrong color?
