    Got into Hesse of course, John!

    Robbins must have been after my time.

    Now I'm studying George Schebler, and I'd have to be a medium to grasp his genius.

    Me neither, Steve!

    Even today, nobody makes an endmill that small that's long enough, and any 'punch' would have been just as phenomenal.

    The only clues we have are the mistakes.

    Your puppy might not have been as sick as most, Chuck!

    They were often an 'entry level' machine, if you know what I mean.

    Well,.. Joe,..

    Let's start where we all agree: Clean oil, changed often.

    And ZDDP is desireable if you can find it. (Some Valvolines still have it, we hope...)
