Spokeshave restore, refurbishThis is what I do… Ok, here is the old chap ready for some LJ love. Take it apart. (I discovered a defect, but since it’s a manual tool, this is no problem). Remove the rust from the cap iron. Sand it flat, so you will have a good contact to the blade. Here you see it after, the flat area will secure a good contact now. I choose also to work a little on the top of the cap, to round it, and make a nice sharp edge so the shaves will run...
The original Woodcutters Helper is precisely that, it measures the log you are sawing to your exact specifications. Its simple and effective. Firewood the same length stacks tighter and neater saving space. Never struggle with trying to fit a piece of wood that is too long into your stove ever again.

The ruby script is now called ‘cutlist.rb’ and it’s really just a stub with all of the main code...

Mom visited a couple of weeks back for 10 days. She tends to come out once per year in the summer to see me, her only son. She helped me replace some broken things in my continuing “everything’s breaking” period (broke a bit last week on the mill – pricey, too – my computer a week or two before that, and my TV shortly before that, sigh…). Then over dinner for her birthday somewhere nice we talked about woodworking, and my idea for making some things like cu...
