A blogger buddy feels I have been neglecting my mistress. He claims I am distracted by other hotties lurking in the shadows. He is wrong. I am still madly hot for my Anna. Today it was almost 50 degrees and I made some time to spend with my girl. I will be doing as many little thing for her as I can now that the weather feels more temperate.
I pulled out the bench top brake and some 2024 aluminum and commenced to cutting and bending.
Some buck riveting and some drilling and next thing I knew I reproduced the sheet metal gear box for the TV antenna. This one does not need constant priming and painting to keep it from rotting away.
I have been gathering bits and parts of antennas for a year now to get one complete.
Here is my 1958, 61,62, 64 Television antenna. The ironic thing is we do not watch TV while camping. I just like the added bling. I guess I need to send in for one of those converter box coupons or this antenna will be obsolete.
