We've settled on a design and are making last minute preparations for next week's event. I've had a cold for the last few days, so my first priority has been to get healthy; I don't want to head to Fairbanks feeling less than 100%.
Lars has been very busy working on tools. He welded up a new drill press table (the "Drill Press Table X-2007 HD") and has done some ice axle testing. He is also trying to put together a hot tubing ice cutter to try out.
The high temperature in Fairbanks is supposed to be -20°F from today through Sunday, but they say it should be warmer (lows near 0°F) next week.
