    I made a quick swing into the PS area just a few minutes ago to see what the Private Stock guys were up to. Some really amazing instruments under construction.

    I'm going to try to make this a weekly event, so look for more PS in the future!

    Eric does most of the PS assemblies, but sometimes Len and Scott from PTC chip in and give him a hand. Just as the PS team helps out the PTC when we need a hand.

    Eric G? Wait, that's me, but that doesn't look like me. My alterego living out my inner dream?

    Ask that one if he wants to work for CU for a few weeks. :)
