This is a historical post from Jan 2018 I’m catching up on. Not only is the build slow. So is my blogging. I’ve managed to get in some decent weekend hours in the garage but it’s the sort of slow and steady progress that doesn’t make for interesting blog posts. One thing I have definitely […]Read More Always wear protection
Welcome to any new readers or people have come across from my old blog site. This blog used to be hosted at https://davessr2roadrunnerbuild.wordpress.com/ (probably dead by now) and I’ve recently decided to stump for a small server and a domain name.

As I said in my previous post, I know that I’ve underestimated how much this is going to cost me. When I’m finished I’d like to know how much I’ve spent (to the penny). I’d also like to know how much money I think I have left to spend at all times. With this goal […]Read More Keeping Track of Costs
