One that got away

Well here's a tough one that got designed, got mostly built, but never got used.

It's an octagonal window frame that some of you might find interesting. Here is a link to the pictures, with descriptions on how this thing came about. It was too much of a project to try to put up here.

I know Tom R. will get a kick out of it. It has Tom written all over it.


regards,
jim

WOW. That is really neat. I can see alot of thought and time went into that.

Do one thing at a time, do it well, then move on.

Thanks for that, Jim, - - WOW is right!!, - - great pics and great narrating . . .

That's not only awesome as all hell, - - it's out-'n-out INSPIRING . . .

What did you mean about the 'overseas' part?? Maybe I missed something . . .

I have a project, - - kind of an invention (not quite as elaborate as that one, though) that I'd like you to check out, - - but I'm '7-days-a-week' busy right now for at least the next several months, - - so it might have to be a while 'til I can find some time to dig it out (I think it's in my attic) and get some pics 'n all.

This 'project-invention' is from over 20 years ago, - - and there's still 'no-such-thing' (as far as I know).

Good or bad, - - I think you'd find it interesting.

Clamp,
Thats one Bad Azz window. You ought to put into production or sell it to one of the big window companies.

Yup, still here. Haven't seen anything posted lately that I know anything about. But I still check. What ever happened to Tom R? I sent him a message a while back but never heard anything.

Regards,
Jimc

We never let that stop us from answering a question.

Couldn't say. He was active less than a month and hasn't checked in since November of last year.
Try digging up an old post he was a part of and respond to it like I did with you. If he has email notification it usually brings members back out of the, ahem, woodwork.
