    Excellent. I am almost done with the drawing and assembly instructions for the Walter Star. I will post them soon.

    Walter and I decided that there is one key thing that needs to be custom welded for your particular roof if the ridge line of your roof runs front to back. If it runs side to side then you are fine. This measurement has to be done in place for front to back ridge lines. Unfortunately, you have to have the star in place to make the measurement. So, we may have another session a little later.

    Based on what I saw when Walter assembled or disassembled the star at the last meeting, I'm assuming that the base can be separated from the "star" itself, right?

    I'm trying to decide which vehicle to bring. My pickup would hold more, but my Escape is better on gas...

    I have a pair of bold cutters I will bring, and maybe I'll buy a welding helmet before that weekend.

    I am posting a CAD drawing of the star very soon. The base is in two pieces. The CAD program says 83.5" long for the star and upright braces. Your mileage may vary. The design for the front to back ridge line will be available soon but shouldn't impact the overall length. The base and star/upright brace assembly are welded together.

    Unfortunately, Al won't take PayPal; I'll just have to buy at the "door."

    With the date change, I might be able to make it. Need to see what the boss says first...

    OK, so where's the drawings?

    So the base and star are permanently attached? I was hoping to see something that allowed the star to come "out" of the base and be able to be separately stored.

    I may choose to build the base and star separately and not attach them...

    BTW - I'm definitely coming - planning to come to RTP on Friday night, stay with my son, and then be there at 9.

    I am waiting on a certain person whose name I will not say but whose initials are Walter to measure the steel thickness of the as built prototype. When he does then I can post the drawings which are complete sans the steel thickness. The same person is supposed to be verifying the schematic to the strobe too. Tick tock. If he doesn't give up the info soon then I'm going to tell everybody his name and not his initials. Right now I don't want everybody to know this person's name only his initials.

    Just a reminder that the workshop is this Saturday. I know several people are attending. If you have not gotten the location PM now. If I understood correctly, I need to buy steel for the following people.
    Jack- 3 stars
    Scott- 1 star
    Mark ?
    Mel ?
    Dariusz ?

    Walter and I buy steel tomorrow. In order to get the steel is a real pain in the neck. It requires us to use a 20ft boat trailer and drive half way across the county. If you want a star now is the time to tell me. Wednesday afternoon is too late.
