What's New In Parts!
It was suggested by Carl Heller ~ partsetal, that we create a new Forum for New Parts. Instead of adding new Forums, after talking it over with some of our Administrators and Moderators, I decided to add this information in the Anything Goes Forum. I will make it a sticky so that it will always stay towards the top of the Forum and be easy to find. There are several people here who make parts or tools and they are welcome to list their parts here also, if they are a PAID Member. You can add them also by doing a "Post Reply." Feel free to add pictures of those parts also. As you talk with our vendors, and find out what new parts that are not on this list that they have coming out, you can add them here by doing a "Post Reply" so we will all know. I would like to leave this list as it is. Below is what I have found out by talking to our major parts vendors the last few days.
