Racerhog,
Now is actually a good time of year for a printer (and any other home electronics) to crap out.
Check Best Buy for returns (or "new, open box"). You can find stuff from a little scuffed to perfectly new for big discounts.
All in all, you shouldn't lay down any more than $60 on a home printer, and that would be for a good one that has WiFi and a scanner.

Good luck.
Just like car parts, research and comparing prices can save you a good amount of money for home electronics.

The thing with Best Buy open boxes is they are discounted but often sale prices are better for the same thing new in the store.

Iowan,
That can be true, especially during big sales events.
But when stuff breaks and you don't want to wait for a sale, open box items are a good option.
Back in the day, I got a new 4k smart tv (when they were the new hotness) for about half price.

It's a great day in north Iowa today in the mid to upper 30s, that's about 55 degrees warmer than most January 6 that we have.
I watched the grandson get second place in wrestling this afternoon, he pined his second opponent and all he had to say was that kid was tough......I told him I'm sure he's thinking the same thing.
At seven years old there are a lot of girls in wrestling, and what they lack in skill they make up for in tenacity, the girls just don't quit. Theres a lot of tears at seven from boys and the girls. No body wants to lose. All in all I think it's good for the kids, if they want it they have to work for it, that's what life is.
Have a great day in mopar land, I can't even afford to think about mine.

Wrestling is a great sport for kids.
You can't blame anyone else when you get slammed and pinned, lots of good life lessons can be learned.

Racerhog,
Seems like much of my time is wasted chasing after money companies owe to me. I have actually had to resort to a spreadsheet to prioritize which debts I chase down, based on dollar amount. It's maddening to see the total sum rising rather than falling, no matter how many phone calls I make.
You'd think -I- had done something wrong.
​​​​​​Seems like contracts and handshakes only apply to my end of the deal!

Not to get all fired up.
At least my employer seems happy to pay me. So, the roof won't fall in on me.

Hope all works out for you soon.
Damn shame to have skilled wrenches sitting on the bench over something as trivial as money.

It's all about being persistent.
I'll get my life sorted out eventually... Haha! Been saying that since I was 16!

Anyway, Racerhog, insurance claims feel like they take a long time to get settled. It can be months.Thing sare actually happening behind the curtains, even when it feels like you're just sitting on your hands.

It would be nice to see you tackle a Plymouth, though. Hope that you get the opportunity to pick up a big project soon!

The motor Gods are hungry this time of year.
Humidity and temperature coming down (for most of us who are wearing more than a t shirt!) means wide open is a little wider open than when it was warmer.

The local performance shop (where yours truely has a ride waiting it's turn for the dyno) just posted a PSA with some carnage.
A snapped driveshaft and a blown up transmission housing!
That sort of thing happens when the owner of the car is standing over the shoulder of the tuner and saying, "I want to run 10s! I don't care if it breaks!"
​​​​​Haha!

Anyway,
Glad at least someone is enjoying sun and fun!

We're cloudy and cold in SC.
Makes tolerating being tied to a desk indoors a little easier, though. I'd be loosing my mind like a dog in heat if it were nice weather.

Cleaned up and rearranged the shop, I can get at the chassis soon and Shawn wants to get at the Coronet, Going on snowmobile trip in a couple of weeks.

I got asked about 5/16" studs for 1.7 rockers in a Magnum kit, plan on new iron heads OEM roller cam brings lift up to a decent amount to support the 408, not planning on revving past 5500 rpm. I thought of using Magnum 3/8" studs that are out there with Chevrolet rockers.

What do you think, 5/16" studs big enough? Don't know who's kit he's looked at but it's reasonable, available with excellent reviews.

You can go with the 5/16 stud. But you just have to be a little more conservative on the Spring Pressure and lift of the cam, Especially if you have to move the geometry for valve stem to rocker centering.... So I'm with you on taking the safe road with the 3/8...
Keep an Eye open on the Valve Retainer to Rocker Clearance on the Hartland Sharp's. Some guys like to use the Beehive Springs and retainers for clearance at the Rocker. I always hated grinding on my rockers...
