Slacker. It's only got one speed. I would have expected a man with your high standards and skill would have made it with at least 5 or 6 gears and a working clutch with a cork lined pressure plate.

Unfortunately, I tried that but because the design was an open ended vented clutch, if there was too much sawdust in the shop, as soon as I depressed the pedal, the plates would separate and jam up with sawdust. I got tired of being stuck in 4th gear so I removed it and went with a more simple system. Sometimes, you just gotta pick your battles. :good2:

Well, I guess that's understandable. You are planning on installing a world class sound system tho, right?
