For GrooK .....

Allow me translate but you can also "Google" the "Urban Dictionary of Slang" for terms commonly in use but as you will see there are often several meanings"

"Cold Cocked"

1. Striking someones face or head so hard that they are knocked out instantly.

2. During sex (here we go again), the woman punches the man before he cums to prolong the climax. :

3. One is led to believe that there will be a sexual encounter that dissipates. :


"46" is a simple reference to the old US Highway designation for Route 46, a road that feeds much of the ski traffic from New Jersey to Pennsylvania ski areas. I hope you didn't think that "coming up 46" had any other meaning but actually, I erred in the location. The accident happened on Route 31 which is the old New Jersey Route 69 .... but they had to change the designation since the signs kept being stolen. Refer to the town of "Oxford" for the exact location.

"Out like a light" ..... see above, it's one and the same as one of the "cold cocked" selections.

"Fender Strat" ... now this too is incorrect since anyone knows that Leo Fender's signature trademark was a backward "F" and I was also remiss in noting the model of the aforementioned Strat, short for Stratocaster. Now this may indeed factor since "Strats" came from different sources and used a variety of woods and combinations thereof in the manufacturing process. The early (vintage), Strats were made in the US and are heavier and more durable than say the later succession of Strats made in Japan, Korea and now finally in Mexico. Why this may be a factor is that the early castings and and stampings for the metal components were a bit lighter; that is to say that a Mex Strat would not have the "cold cocking" potential of a vintage US Strat.

Glad to clear this up.

Sincerly .... Yuki ....

Got a "Hot Dog Johnny's" coffee cup Route 46 Buttzville, NJ, in front of me right at the moment.

My favorite is the onion, pickle and a tad of mustard ... and the fries with the Birch Beer .... :

Where's your Route 69 Coffee cup?

Dang! Now I'm in the mood for hot dogs.


*FWIW I'd put the skis upside down on the ski rack you made, Phil.

Dude you are my new hero. I'm going to come up with a MacGuyver award for you. Between this and your portable ski tune station, you've got me thinking of a way to combine the two in a travel-friendly package... maybe I'll call it the "Phil-'er-up tuning station"... Dammit I love being a metal fabricator. Now if I just had more spare time! I may PM you periodically to ask opinions/input on construction options... Hope you don't mind!

All you need to do is implement some handy locking drawers for your tuning supplies, and you'll be a hero!
Oh, an don't forget the hot dog cooker:

Phil, where do you put your easy Up?
And, it would be cool if you could make the rack in your Subie versatile enough to be a rack to store them in when you're slopeside under the easy up.

Good thinking.

The Mack Daddy of portable tuning stations!

hahaha I love where this is going! I'm working on the tuning stand right now, and I should have a finished prototype by the end of the week... So far it has the collapsible legs, a diamondplate aluminum work top, two locking drawers on bearings, an adjustable rail system on top for skis/snowboard tuning/grinding/edging for both flat and angled (treated with plasti-dip for no scratches on the skis), a brake retainer system (that also holds the skis in the stand) a rack that goes on the legs for another two sets of skis, a wax iron stand and wheels/handle for easy moving... still working on the hotdog/bun warmer, tho but don't count me out just yet... I'm trying to use alot of aluminum to keep it light, and I almost had to punch myself out (cold-cocking at its finest!) last night because I was just lying in bed just thinking of better and better ways to do it all... Hey how hot does a wax iron get? Hot enough to cook hotdogs : if they were separated by a stainless plate??? I'm dead serious. I'm getting all kinds of monster garage on this I swear to God.

LOL, I like the design, but is didn't make it past the first hard braking . Might be because I didn't glued it...will do that next to see if it holds up.

Cold cocked by a Fender Strat sounds like a Willie Nelson song.

Must be too many skis on it. I'll take the Javelin SL and GS off your hands to make it easier on you.

So, you survived to try another day.

I learned my lesson with two 150lbs benchtop blood analyzers and a bunch of supplies on Ferno Gurneys (the ones they use for corpses - which I almost became) in the back of a station wagon about 25 years ago. We were threatened with firing if we didn't have the gurney lock-downs installed in the bed of the wagon and ALWAYS strap everything down. Did I listen? ... are you kidding, I was 24 and smarter than the old farts!!

Crushed the back seat forward and kept coming until it hammered me in the back when I stopped hard to avoid an accident. Got lucky.

Good luck with your "product development". I know you'll iron out all the kinks.

Show us your best "rack" when you finish.

I have a piece of carpet padding on the bottom and I use a PVC "ladder" to keep the two rows from scraping.

Any photos?

I have some black indoor/outdoor carpet as my liner. It works fantastically!

It is amazing how well the PVC pipe holds together when glued!

10 pair on the rack, worked great!

Don't let him fool you, Grook. What Yuki didn't tell you in his helpful translation is that he's married to a Norwegian, and he does this just to torment any Scandinavians who might happen to read his posts!
