Got out on the town today, and picked up some small tools I need. Chisels, files, a 2 ft. level, a bevel. And I finally got around to taking the old blade off the circular saw my FIL gave me. I clamped the blade into the machinists vice I’ve got, gave the bolt a jolt of wd-40, and then went at it with a wrench. I’ll get some new blades later this month.
I also found a nice local sawmill that will do small lot surfacing and carries local hardwoods; they’ll also do milling from my raw logs if I bring them. The in-laws have an old black walnut tree they’ve been talking about taking down for years now— I’ll let them know that when they do I want it! The guy at the mill said that there might be waste if it’s got nails in it, though.
