Fontstruct

Cool online font creation tool. Long gone are the days of Fontographer.

This is from House Industries, so it’s high quality but looks too retro for most applications in my book. My friend, Raoul, gave me House’s intro set circa 1996 and apart from Neutraface it was all pretty much useless.

I can’t say that I have had a chance to use them that much. I have the “Design for a Decade” poster and a Marilyn Neuhart print but maybe I just have the wrong clients.

I have uploaded a better picture.

Mercedes Belt Tensioner

After battling with my Mercedes (why don’t I pay someone to fix it?) I discovered a PDF online for the Auxiliary Belt Tensioner which was a goldmine since it wasn’t obvious at all. Since my SEO skills are so good, I am reposting it, so that if you need it, it’s here. By the way those Rhett and Link Commercials are hysterical, so check it out below.

Who piled these up and why?
