All;
I had a slight situation here, I was working on PT 596, specically, that weak toe rail, the port side, well while clipping it from the sprue, it broke in half(the longer part), then when I clipped the broken part, here comes my Japanese double agent Yorkie! Princess!!! While I am grabbing for the part, she snatches up the part, retreats to her bed and basically eats it!!!!!!! Needless to say I subdued my immediate emotions and decided to let her live! SOOO! I will have to employ some basic Shepard Paine 101 "create a part-ism". Don't worry, I already replaced it, the plan is in motion.
Goodnight all,
TED

Frank;
Well by now you now the ideological tendencies that existed then, who knows maybe Yorkshire and all Yorkies are really World War Two Japanese sympathizers! I don't know, but she came really close to meet her maker, especially since we are basically dealing with $150 models here. The only thing that saved her was her microchip(yes Yorkies with chips are 1500-3000, unfortunatly, I am stuck with two of these flea bags! I am a Lab, or Cheasapeake Bay retriever fan, I have no use for small dogs.......the wife!). I am out.
Take care,
TED

That's awesome Ted. Glad you were able to recover. I have a cat that doesn't eat parts but God knows where those parts go sometimes. Not to mention some of my tools.
