No oversight here, buddy. You simply misunderstood what I was trying to say. And, like I said...that's probably my fault. .
I'm sure I misunderstood as you say. But when you said "Frankly....now that I've seen the list, I'm a little surprised at the extent of the accessories we're gonna install on this thing" it honestly felt like you were suggestinng it was too much. Then you really threw me off when you saud take it easy when I was just tryiing to point out there was more on the last build.
Sorry buddy for misunderstandinng.
No problem, Neal. You and I are both pretty direct in our deliveries I think. So sometimes what we say might be misinterpretted. For the record, I dont now, and never did, think the parts list was too long or extensive. I was just 'surprised' to see how extensive it was and how many separate accessories go into these things compared to what it looks like when one sees the finished product sitting at the curb. Heck, I'm game to see if we can install every available accessory in the catelog!
And I said 'Take is easy' because it sounded to me like you took offense... as if I was questioning your build plan. I doubt I'd ever do that as this is an area in which your talents, knowledge, and experiences are superior to mine. As an aside, I've given some thought to if/when I get a chance to ultimately own one of these Project Rangers. If you don't wind up building it, I might enlist the help of my buddy Gayle who's talents rival yours when it comes to this kind of thing. The problem is that he lives down in my old neck of the woods in southern WI. Gayle is retired now, but sold welding supplies, gases, and 'systems' for shops and plants all over the state. In fact, he has his own company now and installs welding and gas systems on the side (weekends mostly). I frequently marvel at the stuff he comes up with. He just started getting into woodworking, so we've been sharing all sorts of ideas, pics, etc. lately.
