Some of us do have regular job...hobby is reserve for when I have free time. I'll make it easy...I don't need the gears...I have plenty of sets. Moving on. All these negativities/vibes. Can't we just be glad something is being done?

My kidney luckily has a perfect gearbox but you never know what could happen.

I never say it is impossible to do things that are hard...if we keep thinking that way...nothing gets done. I have casted preliminary gears...yes...I have done this already but not for Kidney. People have casted gears before machining was possible. First gears were made out of wood and a carving tool? Yes...I will get to the Kidney gears after I am done with the other project...got multiple stuff going on.

You are a credit to fan collectors everywhere in my opinion,

Lets just stop. At the end of the day...it is just a fan. I do it because it is fun and it gives me something to do. No harm...just lockdown frustration...venting. Sorry ALL!
