Thank you all. The whole holiday went well.
Oh ya, I forgot that to become a honourary 'Newfie' we had to also drink a jigger of 'screech'.

I find myself in the same boat as you, Mike. I bought a stalled project that had a front axle welded on, [nicely, but at the wrong angle], so I can't get enough caster. My upper A-frame doesn't look...
