2000. New this month is Gerry Vinci, who is offering
his wood carving talent to casting pattern projecteers.
One of the most enjoyable aspects of putting
together the VI magazine is getting in touch with all those enthusiastic
folks all over the place, who are actually getting off their butt to MAKE
new Indian parts.
Here's the basic idea of the VI Exchange:
Anyone with services or parts to offer can get an entry here, stating what they need and what they have. This isn't limited to the VI Projecteers, so if you have an idea to make new Linkert bodies or something, but lack the facilities to do it, drop me a note, and we'll see if someone can't come up with something!
Those of us, with little or no Indian related skills to offer, sometimes feel left somewhat out of this. Happily we often have SOME skill we can cash in on, and it just might happen that tax accountancy or home made icecream could be traded for new Sport Scout cam covers or machining work on your wheel hubs (I probably shouldn't have mentioned the "T" word, but we'll just assume that everybody does what it takes to keep the IRS happy...). So whatever you want and whatever you've got, this may be the ticket for making the best of it.
I put in some links to pages with more info in the table below. Some of these pages don't have links back to here, so you may need to use your browser's "back" button to get back to where you left off.
We'll see where this leads, and adjust accordingly. Please let me know what you think!
One project, where services are already being traded: Duff's Moto Valve. Lyle's doing the castings for the production versions. More about the Moto Valve here!
