"What I Did While The HAMB Was Down" that is going to be a great return thread. I bought a '32 Heavy axle, and thanks to The Ford Barn got a tip on Okie Joe. He'll be blueprinting my axle and spindles. I worked on the Roadster for the first time in months. I wouldn't go so far as to say not having the HAMB is a good thing, but it did get me into my shop.

"What I Did While The HAMB Was Down"

Quite a bit more than I have since joining The HAMB 12-years ago, I'm ashamed to say.......

Like engine blueprinting, Okie Joe has fixtures to align the kingpin and spring perch holes, set the caster & camber. I never knew things change when you add 39-48 spindles on an early axle. When the axle and spindles come home all I have to do is paint and install. Bob

If the only time you get any work done is when the hamb is down for maintenance maybe they should randomly take it "off air" for a day every month or so, then people will get inspired to do stuff and post about what they did when it goes back "on air" again.
