In-DwelleR-EVIL Dis-Ease Follows Me ….i have all-ways been,this dis-ease that eats in-side,gnaws be-low my bark….—by flp ——————————————————————————————————————————————————...
Not much to say. I’ve got some video editing stuff to figure out (upside down footage – camera is currently dangling upside down underneath the rig – and how to play some sappy sailing music in the background), but otherwise it was a success. I’m going to coat all the parts with three coats of Arm-R-Seal to try to keep the saltwater out. Wait until you see the footage from the kitecam!
Here’s the two reels after I strategically removed about half the wood. It’s still strong, but a whole lot lighter to stuff into the luggage. We’ve addressed the canting keel problem of the camera, and we got our camera/enclosure in the mail today, so I think we’re set. I figured out how to invert .avi video, so we’re going to hang the camera upside down from the middle of the parallel linkage. Tomorrow, we’re going to jump on a boat for an hour and...
So today after sailing lessons, we used the boat to “test drive” our contraption. The kite flew very well on just 4 knots under motor, but we had to tweak the lines a bit to get it to fly horizontally. We discussed that the kite can only be flown while we’re going upwind, but that still gives us lots of leeway. The reel performed very well, especially the two speed handles. As you can see, I’m in the process of lightening the reel by drilling holes. We’r...

WoodShop Tales Beyond ….two trees blowing in the wind,a mighty forest surrounds these centennial’s,two loner’s sending out their branching eaves,many sentients come to waunder along the way…. ….i was younger in those days that are behind,one worker of wood leaves his shop for open space,out here i am but the shadow of my own imagination,my sentiments to those who can-not come out to play…. ….two tree’s,two loner’s,many sentient’s,one work...
I was able to squeeze another day in the shop. We started out by finishing up the parallel linkage with the barrel bolts we got from the hardware store. Then we fabricated the Brooxe hanger and the camera enclosure mount. Finally, it was time for the handles. ^ Handles installed on the reel assembly ^ Camera enclosure mounted on the bottom of the parallel linkage ^ Brooxe hanger showing how kite string winds around the “mushrooms” in the top member of the parallel l...
Unorthodox WoodWorking Tools…. ….at some point in my woodworking story,the point was made that i must create beyond,“beyond what” i heard my-self asking again until,“until the dreams you have be-come art” i perceived…. ….so much that i was more at the world’s lost end of my-self,since all my be-ing up until then had be-come as un-perceived,works of art back then all included “other’s” concept for wood,till the responsibility back then was all laid on my shou...

Phantom of My Woodworking Heart ….out of the city i walked one day into a forest of wood,never looking back at those objects that once held me,saving my soul from the plight of the lost and un-redeemed,i came to re-pair my-self from the time zone of asphalt jungles…. ….those ills i took on then back there in that forest of steel,have now cursed me again with a reminder of a jaded past,but I am far better now by the under-standing i gained from wood, i was made for wood and in ...
