    Camp Lejeune NC help $$

    I made the mistake of bidding on a M1101 where there are only loadouts on Thursday 9-12:30. Might explain why trailer went for reasonable price that it did.

    Was digging around in my junk looking for a 24vdc power supply and ran across some NOS PLC stuff. Need to see where my software and license is but might be time to make a custom MEP-802B.
