Jesse,
You can resize in Paint.

Open the pic in Paint, do a resize.

I usually start with 50%, then do another 50 or 75%.

Then save the image as another file so you don't compromise the original.

Then attach the new image and download.

Download and install this PowerToys clone for Vista of an Image Resizer.

http://sourceforge.net/projects/phototoysclone/

Once installed, all you need do is right-click an image, select "Resize" from the resulting menu, and select a size. Done.

I've taken the Eureka out for a few test runs. I'll post some videos shortly.

So many moons have passed and this project is coming back to life. The goal is to have it finished by December. I have developed a working hydrostatic lubricator for it and working out the bugs. I'll post more photos as work progresses.

The cab deck boards are cut from oak. The rear braces/supports will be finished tomorrow when the material arrives.

The running boards are rough cut. Three boards are biscuit joined and glued together to make the one running board. They are cut from oak.
