Stovebolt February Stats

Visit - Woodworking Superstore!

        We got some interesting news from Rockler -- a name many of you who work with wood (as in Making a Stovebolt Bed) are familiar with. This month, they just introduced their Adjustable Clamp-It Assembly Square. (Sounds like a neat Valentine's Present, eh?) They say this product is like their successful original Clamp-It, but can be adjusted to many different angles.  Like the original Clamp-It, the Adjustable Clamp-It acts as a third hand and allows you to set perfect 90º angles for standard assemblies and glue-ups.

        Rockler is the only company to offer a product like this, and they feel it will be very successful. They've got some interesting facts and demonstrations on their web site. And it's cheap -- under $20!

       Shoot, if nothing else, get a free catalog ... got some cool tools in there!

"Glove Box Manual"

        Do we have a surprise for you!! We can tell you all about it, but it would not do it justice. Bill "red58" LePage did a great job of getting all the facts and he put together this informative and very entertaining guide for using the Stovebolt forums. He's covered issues about log in, profiles, navigation, searching, posting, editing, questions (IT Shortbus), adding links and pictures, and your email information. Norselander gave it a going over and was so inspired, he created this neato image for our "delivery man." Thanks for making this happen. Let Bill know if you have any suggestions (especially now that he's the IT Shortbus moderator -- you can easily find him). We eventually will take out the plain, old, dull and boring FAQ listing in the forum and insert this more fun version!

New Saga

Stovebolter to the Bone

        We have a lot of activity on the site - with lots of old time Stovebolters and now: "Stovebolters, The Next Generation" is slowly coming onboard. This kind of motivation and Stovebolt Fever is great to be part of.

        Eric "Beast54" Radak's story is just one that confirms "Where there's Stovebolt Passion, there's a way!" From learning how to do all this restoration stuff (and I do mean ALL) to some creative financing ideas to continue his project, Eric's story is another wonderment to the Power of the Bolt! And Eric must have Stovebolt Radar -- besides what he mentions in his saga, he had the winning It Ran When I Parked It entry for 2005 and The Peoples' Choice in 2004!

        Eric started his saga at age 17 with a a 1954 Chevrolet 3100. Now, two years later, he's 19 with still quite a story to share ... and best yet: HIS TRUCK IS FINISHED and IT LOOKS GREAT!

       Come read this story and puff out your chest a little, too!

         You have a terrific web site. I don`t know how you did it. It sure beats watching TV during the cold South Dakota winters.

         I really cannot thank you enough for hosting such a terrific website. I get so much enjoyment from visiting and communicating with folks on the site … and all the new forums and news updates are wonderful.

         When my truck ('56 Chevy Stepside / Daily Driver) hit the Gallery here recently, my site got 4,446 hits over the next five days .... of course, not all of these were Chevy-related but according to my stats, my Chevy photo page got huge numbers!

         How cool!
