Thanks for the update Josh

Yes Lonnie had everything there to complete the build, someone will be very lucky to acquire it.

If only I had the time/space/$
Hopefully someone is able to continue it on in Lonnie's honor.

In large part, Lonnie's build kept this forum going, and I fear traffic is going to drop off even more now without him. That said, it does seem likely that someone will pick it up and continue.

If and when Lonnie's estate has a sale, please let us know. The least we can do - short of taking over the project - is turn some of his tools into cash that the family can use.

Sad to hear the news. Lonnie was definitely an asset to this community and will be missed. Hopefully his project finds a new home.

Hi all,

Lonnie's Locost is available and still looking for a home. Please let me know if any of you or know anyone that might be interested.
We are not selling but want to give away to someone that can bring the project to fruition

Thank you,
Josh
