Hey everybody I got another refurbish to do. William has brought me a very brown #5 craftsman. She is fluted on the bottom and flat as my head its also old enough to have made in the USA stamped on it. I have got to get that plane tote built. I might do it tonight had a little to much coffee. And yes I did enjoy our visit William.
William is not telling everything. When I paid him a visit he gave me a project. I now have a dust collector to mount in the ceiling and figure out a cyclone system.
Off the subject. William and I were doing a lot of that. Has anyone noticed that about 150 days ago there were 50 new lj’s created, every state in the union. I had made Mississippi my buddy to watch the activity. If they could make it where every on in there state could connect in some kind of way, we could get together and swap saw dust.
I think William there are some shots of the bench on my shop page. It was some thing I put together for necessity. And I kinda like dove tails. It was good practice.
I think we need to have some kind of local lumber jocks guild. We could work with special needs kids, swap skill sets and just have a good time.
William you missed your calling. You should have been a writer. It was a very good day. And the o2 sensor did the trick. She purrs like a scroll saw. ha ;)

What a cool day, William! During my travels in the next weeks, I am hoping to hook up and meet Rivergirl (Kelly). We are driving through Pennsylvania where she lives and she is going to possibly drive up to meet us where the highway crosses. This is contingent on everyone’s schedule, but if it works it will be wonderful to meet her face to face. I am really looking forward to it!

Thanks for the nice story. It is great to read about everyone’s shop and travels!

Sheila ;)

It’s a small world and Pigs can fly. I found out last week that a new co-worker knows superdav, who I’ve never actually met in person. Also, William came by my house yesterday with a piece of wood I saw in an “antique” store about four blocks from my house here in Clinton, MS. I have a hell of a woodturner for a neighbor, guess what, his son is a woodcarver and he’s in the same woodcarving guild as Chips, who I’ve never actually met in person. The woodcarving guild was started by the previous pastor of the church I go to. There’s a fellow on here, jasonjonesis , I think he’s the guy that joined after buying a jointer from me. I met another Clinton local, Tubmanslim, after I found him looking for some plane parts on another woodworking site, think of creeks and sawmills. Somewhere in my old posts is one of me complaining about missing out on some free wood. A couple weeks later a guy bought a lathe from me, a little talking and I found out that he was the one who had offered the free wood. That guys name is William, and very shortly thereafter I got a new friend.

And William, Superdave and the lot, I agree, we need to have a get together. How about this Saturday at the Ag museum for the Pearl River Woodcarvers 2011 Championship.

I’ll be there, guess I need to get a KTMM nametag….....

I hope we can all get togehter at the same place and at the same time one of these days. I wish I could make it next Saturday. Unfortunately, I blew my fuel budget for the month straight to #@%& yesterday. If something comes up where I see I can afford it though, I will be sure to let you all know. I’d love to go if it becomes possible.

Oh, by the way Dave, we talked about the other things I bought at that sale. I wound up with 23 CDs that were still good. I paid $2 for the whole lot. Among them are bands I hadn’t thought of in a while.
Metallica
Def Leppard
Motley Crue
Megadeath
Iron Maiden
I had a few CDs from some of these bands, but some of these are songs from when I was a young man hanging in local bars around Atlanta. Man do they bring back memories.

I’ve been talking to the ruler of all rulers (the wife). If a little something I have in the works goes like I want it to, I will be there next Saturday. If (remember I said if) I make it, I don’t need a name tag. You all have met me and I don’t think there will be anyone else there as big and ugly as me. Just look for the big ugly guy with the gimp leg with plenty of tattoos and a bald head.

Hey I’m Bald , listen to big hair bands and other stuff. We need you there or we could be standing right next to one another and never know it. Wait lets all wear 2/4’s on our heads. The woodpeckers will love it.
Good deal on the music.

It’s not bald, it’s folically challenged.
Since it’s my own thread I’m highjacking, it sounds like the perfect opportunity for another good story.
About fifteen year ago I was doing industrial mechanic work in a plant here in Vicksburg. Since the rules said no hair, I kept my waist length long hair rolled into a bun and tucked under my hat. I was welding on a shaker when I removed my hood to wipe all the sweat off my forehead that was starting to run into my eyes. When I did, my welding cap fell off too and landing about fifty yards lower on the floor. Since I only had one pass to go and I was in an area that noone would notice my hair out, I figured I’d finish the pass before making the long climb down.
What I did’nt account for was the guy welding above me. Before long, a piece of hot slag hit the top of my head and caught my hair on fire. By the time I made it too the mirror to check out the damage, I looked like Bozo the clown on a bad hair day. This just wouldn’t do. I had the bright idea of shaving it all off so it all would grow back evenly.
I got it all off and couldn’t believe how much I liked it. I had been taking thirty minutes on my hair every morning for years and was having to tie all that mess up every night to avoid tangles. Now I could just wash and go. I haven’t been able to allow my hair to get longer than about an inch ever since.
Of course, the landing strip, as my kids call it, that goes down the middle sort of helps with that ongoing decision.
