Not that I am the Wrenchscalibur-cop, but has there been any resolution on this? This was why I had stressed that members have EM parts in-hand before submitting their name in rotation. One solution is for Wilson to ship the wrench to the next party in line while he waits for his additional parts or time to install them, instead of making everyone behind him wait. Wilson- How are you coming? Need some help? What can we do to help your bike and the tools moving again?

Wilson said he broke something, and ordered parts from the local Kwakker dealer... Perhaps they are backordered. Agree he should forward it if there is a long delay anticipated...

Wilson???????????????????????????????????????????? ???????????????

Hogwash! For you are the founder of the lady, the master of her journey! The mighty Wrenchscaliber has been beckoned to answer to the duty of her current holder, but her heart lies ultimately with her creator!

OK, I got that out of my system

I just left a message on Wilson's cell phone. I'll keep you all updated.

He probably just forgot. Maybe everyone who has viewed this thread should send him an e-mail, voice mail and a PM to remind him. All 2,700+ of us.... Boy, THAT would stick a hump in your cell phone bill, wouldn't it?

WILSON !!!!!!!, ther are people here waiting on you, be a sport and at least let all of know what is going on. There are some here who have begun the repair in anticipation of receiving the wrench in a timely manner. You are down because of a error in your work or just bad luck with a part. Don't alienate the whole group, just let us know what is going on.

I kinda got the impression Wilson didn't want to spend the postage and hoped to have someone come to him and pick up the wrench. I'm next in line, but.. if someone in the queue is close and wants to do that, feel free, mail it to me when you are done please.....

Wilson, wherefor art thou, Wilson....

Disappointing that this fell apart so soon..... Kudos to Waldo1 for being a good guy!!

Jan....

I left another message on Wilson's cell phone earlier. No return (yet).

If postage is a concern, then Wilson hasn't spent much time on this forum. If he had, he would know how helpfull everyone on here is towards one another. He would also know how understanding everyone is. All he has to do is let us now what is up?

Wilson- just let me know what the postage is to send Wrenchscaliber to Janfmiller. I will paypal you the $, just to get this thing moving again. We help eachother out on here.

However, I do have to say, I totally disagree with how you are handling this. But, for the sake of the other members in line, PM me with the $ and your paypal ID (sign up if you don't have one). Once I hear from janfmiller that he received the noble wrench (and the actual $ amount), I will send you the money. Just please don't ignore us. If you drag your feet any longer, the deal is off.

What if something bad happened?

What if he got it fixed , to it for a test drive and a cage took him out?

Wrench caliber is in his shop , but the family knows nothing about the traveling wrench.

I hope not!

SORRY GUYS......Yes I was dumb and broke the one way starter clutch, chipped on of the roller bearings installing the flywheel. The part was on back order, but is on route to me by this Monday March 2, according to UPS tracking. I will install it on Monday night, and as JanMiller indicates, we spoke about a week ago and my plan is to ship it out to him next.

Again, sorry for the delay, and for not checking the posting.....just to note I didn't get any pm regarding this so unfortuately I was not aware of this until I started to receive calls from Nick.

Will get this back out to the community pronto.........

So I made my own wrench this morning. 3/4" threaded rod, 3-1/2 x 4" angle iron, a little cuttin' and grindin' and weldin', and whola!


This is the line now (with my name removed), best I can tell. Please let me know if I missed someone. Ahongus, I would contact Racedogs via PM now that I am out of the circle.

If anyone is within striking distance of Lewiston, Maine, and would like to use mine, shoot me a message. I've also ordered a puller from EM.

Good luck!
