    If you're handy with tools just a little bit , you can build one yourself , I used an old projector screen tv cabinet I saw put out in the trash , gutted it , sealed the bottom of it , put in a false floor of peg board and added an old bank vacuum blower as an exhaust fan , the exhaust is ducted outside ,  mounted a light and a turn table in it and it's worked out great .

    I'm driving a 94 2500 Suburban I bought from the original owner , it has 375,000 miles on it (still has the original engine and trans) and I'm happy to have it . I only paid $2000 for it and she had taken very good care of the truck (gave me a binder full of every receipt for anything done on the truck since new) . I've spent probably $1500 in the last 3 years on what I call maintenance (I've also put 40,000 miles on it) , tires , brakes , exhaust , power steering pump , shocks , door switches and headlight housings . I think it's a good deal , it looks good for it's age , gets me where I want to go , will haul anything I need to haul , pulls my little trailer effortlessly and there's no payment (that's the big thing , I hate payments) . But I'm prone to driving my vehicles till the wheels fall off .

    That's for the thoughts guys , I'm just working through daily life without putting any pressure on the thumb . It's amazing the things we do without thinking about how much the loss of an appendage will affect them . Opening jars , holding my 1 yr old grandson (who accidentally kicked my hand this morning) , any kind of yard work , it's all a new adventure in pain management .

    Yep , beautiful weather , lows in the high 50s , highs in the mid 70s , if it weren't for the fire in the swamp ( Okefenokee ) it would be really nice.

    well , sliced the end of my thumb off on the table saw yesterday morning , lost about a half inch below the thumbnail . That's what I get for wearing cloth gloves working around power tools , a spiral of metal caught in the glove when I tried to pull it free and yanked my hand into the blade . Now I get to go to the orthopedic surgeon and have him tell me there's nothing he can do , nothing left to sew up , might have to work on the bone , it splintered a little on the tip . Should make vacation at the beach next week fun  , was looking forward to doing a little deep sea fishing , not so sure now . All in all it could have been a lot worse , just have to adjust to thumb bandaged hand now.
    " Keep moving forward "

    I think these are the ones you're looking for ?

    probably have to bend them out of solder to get the best match.
