That pic of Jack Elam is I believe from Cannonball Run II.

He was a RIOT in "Support Your Local Sheriff" and "Support Your Local Gunfighter" with James Garner

Both Jack Elam and Bruce Dern always played interesting "Characters", often amusing/comical villains.

Eyeballs it is. They haven't failed me yet.

Just thought a guide would be easier.

I used to use eyeballs, but graduated up to a BMIcad fin jig.
All machined aluminum in the various sizes. Works for most of my builds.
Check them out. They have a presence on eBay.
Site is BMIbay at BMIcad dot com.
Really nice ones.

Jack Elam was once a guest on Tim Allen's Tool Time show. He played a retired auto worker. Tim introduced him as the man responsible for aiming all the car headlights as they came down the assembly line. Funny stuff.

Ernest Borgnine played Jack Elam's buddy on that episode of Home Improvement's Tool Time segment. They both supposedly worked in the Ford Rouge plant. Ernest Borgnine's plant job was installing bumpers. They ate "Big Stinky" Limburger/Onion sandwiches at some local dive bar.

Maybe I think too much.

Maybe I just need a Black and Tan.

Maybe "The Vixen" will prepare one for me.

SHE DID!

AHHHHHHHHH! Good night.
