Leaving Saturday at 7am.
I will be in one of my grey Honda shop shirts, with my name on it.
If you can spot me I might buy you a beer.

Could have went today, but have too much to do now that I can drive.

Next year, things should be way different.

Connections???

When I signed up to go a while back, I had to come up with a business name, how I settled on BoneSpec Transmissions, listed myself as a buyer...now I get invited back every year...and all the spam email that goes with it.

That said, I might be buying "part" of a big ultrasonic cleaner.

Yea man. Connections with a vendor maybe. Hang out in a booth and with other vendors after show hours. Lots of after hour bar conversations ended up in business adventures. Plus if you went with a vendor, the trip could be on their dime, which could allow you to go or do things you might not be able to do by yourself.

Ultrasonic cleaning of car parts? I work with some high energy ultrasonic welders. Not welding metal though.

I know enough to worm my way in if needed, but I just want to meet fellow internet "heroes" who really are just common folks.

Cleaning transmission cases. While the current setup I'm using at local shop, they have been talking about getting something "modern" that would use less electricity and be easier to take care of. Also they would be looking for someone (ME!) to run it part time and clean it out.

The old beast works great....but this case was cleaned nicely by last rebuilder, can't say much about his assembly skills though.



Old bench I used to help on teardowns....



The tank of tranny tears and ATF fears....aka mineral spirits and clean drained ATF

That case is clean as hell. I would love for my current engine bay to look that clean. I had a buddy that worked at a detailing shop one time have some form of cleaning solution with acid that would make parts look like that without eating into them. Cleaned a engine bay 100 times better than engine gunk/degreaser. A lot faster too. Good luck on the ultrasonic thing. It should definitely help you save some time. Hopefully you can see a quick return on investment.

That case was likely bead blasted by previous builder. It did have all new case bolts as well. Cleaning it up was really easy due to that.

Normally I spend 2-3 hours scrubbing cases in my little tank of mineral spirits, or pay $20 to use the above washer. I prefer to let the machines do the work!
