The photos I posted were shot by Ted Sutton when he was visiting with Bill Denbeste. I just pulled them from Teds camera to post here.

Below is a link that will give more insight to the Denbeste orginazation.


Here are a few pix I shot while Ted and I were visiting with Peter Brock last week in Henderson that your friend might enjoy seeing.

Guy going for a ride with Tony looks like a not real thrilled Tom Hanks :p
That would be the owner of the boat, Stevie. I think he just woke up. ;)

Tony was giving Stevie a lesson by showing what the boat could do and how much plate he needed for launch. Stevie had recently purchased this boat when the photo was taken.

Exactly how I would look riding in mine, I suck as a passenger.

Did he get rid of Problem Child or does he have both now?

Got it. Can't keep up with these v-drive ballers.......... that Coor's boat is cool!!!
I figured you would like it.
I had a friend way back when that flew one of the two Coors Light Jets. She was an exceptional pilot.

Here's the boat one more time and if you want to see it again you'll need to show up at Sundance. That is unless he needs to do a test and tune and brings it the the Manor first. 😃

Wheeler... Obviously I don't know you, but I want to know if I can just give a "blanket" like to all your pics instead of each one individually?
There's a photo a few pages back that you'll really like! You'll know it when you see it.

Thanks for the compliment. 👍

True. That said, one is what is put out on the floor for the masses to use and the other is used in the tool room.
My 10EE just celebrated it's 75th Birthday.
75th didn't happen without pics.

I grew up in my parents machine shop. First lathe I ever ran was a Hardinge chucker, simple second op stuff at 50 cents an hour. I was probably 11 years old. Later in life, met my first 10EE at a big defense contractor's tool room, had to be 15 of them lined up in a row.
