Baby Rattles #2: Finished one set, starting some new ones

08-04-2008 07:22 PM by Alan | 1 comment »

Finally finished up the first two: And just in time as it seems our friends are all having babies at once. So I’m trying some others and practicing on the lathe. The two dumbbell shaped ones below are similar to the above two. Still need to be sanded and finished.

Went To the Doc Yesterday

10-30-2008 03:21 PM by bhack | 8 comments »

Well, yesterday I went to the doctor for my yearly checkup. All the test came out within the parameters of a healthy 64 year old man. I feel a heavy load off my shoulders each year when I get the results. The relief grows proportionally with the advancement in age.

OK – so now the folks on the forum have told me how to paint PVC with success. Now I would like your opinion if painting the PVC is even necessary. Would you paint the PVC tubing between the wheels? I’d really like your opinions. Thanks in advance.
