I unboxed the saw an with help from my father on Sunday got the saw body attached and the riser block installed. My wife’s birthday was Tuesday, so my family took us out to dinner then did the cake and presents thing at my Wife and my house. (hence how I got my father to come help me).
The saw sat mostly together on Monday night as friends of our recently became parents and they wanted a night out with the baby “McLovin” ( I love my friends) and we are the most laid back of all thier friends soo little Mclovin had his first trip to Beel O’Gradys and Marble Slab Icecream.
Tuesday had the Saw sitting in it’s sad state while I took the wife to dinner and treated her to a bottle of 12yr Jamesson’s ( I married a Wiskey drinkin woman ) then some Tv shows she likes to watch.
So that leaves tonight…. Riser block parts are now all on the saw, blower hose is set up, Blade is on tensioned and tracking properly ….... and this bring me to my first lesson in not hurring in the shop and pushing to do more once you are tired…. not a big thing just a small cut… I was setting up the roller barring guides and instead of using the hex wrench away from the saw blade I was tuning the wrech in front of the blade in a downward motion….slipped cut myself on the outside of my thumb… hurt like helck bled some… I felt like an idiot because it hit me how dumb I was being and how I was just pushing to get a little bit more done before bed….. Lession Learned…..
The worse part was having to tell my wife what I had done and how dumb I knew it was…. She got upset at first.. she is kind of scared of this new hobby of mine. I showed her it was a little cut and that my fingers were still there… Then she looked at me and said well… you wont do that again will you??
I said nope.
Be safe everyone….. and Goodnite
