While searching for an owners manual on Portercable/Delta.com website, I came accross this notice of a free 1 month All access to Fine Woodworking magazine.com a lot of neat videos, free plans, information just check it out. I also wanted to let everyone know why I have’nt made anything or been on line much besidess the uroligists thing. The first part of August my wife and family went up to my brothers place a Houghton Lake with plans of a few days of walleye fishing and then after the family left on Monday we were heading to Frankfort for some salmon fishing. We arrived Thursday and the Kids were coming up on Friday with their families. We unloaded the boat once we got there, downriggers, poles, salmon fishing gear mostly, and my wife went to town to pick up supplies. I climbed in the boat to hook up the batteries to the charger, it had been rainning and things were slick. Getting out I slipped, I had on flip flops, and my foot slipped off the fender well and down I went scrubbing my shin on the way down, and landed on my already broken tailbone. Well when my wife returned and stopped cussing me out she took me to Urgent Care where I received 27 stiches in a cut 5 and a half long and 1 and one half wide. It took the Doctor about an hour and a half to close me up using mattress stiches. Well I was told to go home and lay with my leg up and change the dressing 3 X daily or go to the hospital, due to my diabetes. Well at least my family had a good time up north. We ended up coming home early, I had to get my stiches out in 12 days. And I was’nt in shape to fight a 30 lb salmon. When we arrived home and were unloading the boat I fell in my wood pile. I tore a hole in my ear, and landed on a 1 inch branch that landed in my groin. So I ended up swollen and bruised from my crotch to my knee, and almost all the way around my leg, the same leg by the way that I had cut. Well I had to get the stiches out anyway so I went to my family Doctor and after a long deridding about being careful I was given another 2 weeks of staying off the leg or go to hospital due to fear of clotting from the diabetes. So I’m not looking for sympathy, I just wanted everyone to know why I have’nt posted anything and where I’ve been. I should have gone to Mark’s girls babtism. Safer maybe. By the way if you need old parts manuals or parts lists for Portercable/Delta, Black/decker, and other companies go to that website and download any of it for free. I also wanted to congratulate Dick Cain on his 1 year, mine is coming up soon to Dick. And let people know I’m still looking at your projects and commenting as long as my poor butt will let me. Looks like a great time at Mark Decous. Wish I’d been there. God Bless All you Lumberjocks. You rock my world. By the way too my 16” variable speed lathe is kaput model #46-765X in case anyone knows a thing about them. I think its the inverter, the power comes on, the fault light blinks and it won’t run. Any suggestions would help. Of course it’ll be a week or so before I’ll get out there so no rush.
