san jose meet & greet, pot luck, build party combo - Sat 1/28

** The official date is Saturday, Jan 28th. **
Official time is 12 noon until whenever, come earlier if you have a large project.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
since it has been nearly forever since there has been a south bay meet & greet i think it is time to set one up.
so...
it will be at the fun factory (my house / shop) in north east san jose.
15287 penitencia creek rd. san jose 95132
(just across the bridge of death, enter at your own risk!)
i have parking for about 50 rigs or so, so thats not an issue.
bring your own beer / booze / liquid refreshments, & what ever food / snacks / appetizers you want to share. i have a fridge & micro-nuker in the factory.

as always, i will be working in the shop & will probably be doing some type of welding, so this will also be an open build party for anyone who wants to work on their junk.

it sounds like we have at least one guy who wants to do a gear swap & yes, i have a press, dial indicators, gear marking yellow snot, a d-30 case spreader, & everything else needed to do....well, just about anything.
but i hate getting that messy, so you get to do all the dirty work. i'll watch, make fun of you, & do any welding needed.

NOTE: NEW FUN FACTORY RULES!
don't dump your used oil all over the ground & my snap-on floor jack ($$$) like the last bozo i let swap gears at my shop. he almost blew it for everyone, i seriously was considering not letting anyone else but a couple close friends work on their junk in the fun factory ever again.
he didn't even apologize or help clean up. i was pissed but didn't say anything, i just cleaned up his giant mess myself. this will not happen again or you will be perma-banned from my shop! i typically do not charge for my services (but will gladly accept donations for shop supplies) so don't abuse it!

now for the date: vote in the poll to determine the date.

for a time, how about noon till whenever. if you have a longer project in mind (like swapping an axle housing, gears, or a lift kit) you can start as early as 8:00 am as i'll be out there working on my junk, & stay till it is done. i typically close up around 9:00 on saturdays so there is lots of time to get-er-done!

Any weekend is fine so I chose the last option to be difficult.

28th, just to have time to plan.

I don't have any work that wants doing at the moment, but I haven't been to a M&G in a while, and I'd like to correct that oversight (the last one was FarmerMatt's...)

Re: san jose meet & greet, pot luck, build party combo!

I would definitely be down for a meet and greet that's a lot closer to my place than Sac. I accidentally voted for the 28th but would meant to put the 21st down.

Re: san jose meet & greet, pot luck, build party combo!

voted for the 28th. Who has some experience and wants to help me install a set of gears? I think I will have one axle done by then so it would just be one axle. Ill bring your favorite brew (provided I can find it) or something else as a token of my appreciation, since I dont know jack about gearing besides what I learn between now and then

Re: san jose meet & greet, pot luck, build party combo!

so far it is looking good for the 28th.
luckily only 2 bozo's voted for: "never, i don't want to go to the fun factory & meet anyone!"
one was the_weirdo & no one really wants that power wielding moderator bully to show up anyway. he just makes fun of my welds & hurts my feelings causing me to schedule extra sessions with a therapist to work things out.

Re: san jose meet & greet, pot luck, build party combo!

on another note, if i get bored i was thinking it would be fun to build an rti ramp so some of you mall crawlers can flex your junk.

on second thought, that didn't sound quite right.

we could always lift a tire with my forklift attachment on my bobcat & measure the height. or i could flip the_weirdos rig on it's side by accident. yeah, that would be fun!

Re: san jose meet & greet, pot luck, build party combo!

See what I can do about going on the 28th. Not shifting again, so transmission is coming out Saturday for the slave cylinder. If all is good by then, I'll drive on out. Never hurts to learn how to drive a bobcat!

Re: san jose meet & greet, pot luck, build party combo!

I'd love to come visit your fun factory (we are talking about the shop, right? ) If I don't get my truss welded up by then, maybe I could bring my axle/truss and "get'r done". If I do, then maybe I'll bring it down and take advantage of the press to set up my gears. Beats using my "hammer press" that I usually use. I could even bring a couple of nice big Costco pizzas for everyone to munch on. (I know, not the best pizza. But ya get a lot cheep!) Whatever day it is I'll try to make it down. And thanks Tim for offering your fun factory up for us deprived children.
