Nice work on the woodie iron Al. I spent about an hour working on a Sandusky iron today. And the back STILL isn’t flat…

I like to roll on the full season crack sessions myself. I also like gummy bears .. A lot. Maybe ill hog out a chunk of firewood for grease box. Ive admired them since Mafe blogged it about 2 years ago. Buy it. It wont boost your badass points but youll get there a lot quicker.

Al is that beauty yours? If so you should bring that by so I can dump a hundred or so projectiles through that…. After typing that I realized that it could be taken REALLY wrong-but left it as originally typed because either way it will get a rouse.For the record meant the weapon…..lol….

Dang Al, some of your posted pics can cause nightmares! Nice job on the Butcher, however. That’ll get you a little leeway. Oh and the Porsche doesn’t say gay as much as “chiropractor having a mid-life crisis”. That’ll probably be the only thing that would stop you from buying it. Seriously, it’s a Porsche, if you want one, get it. What real guy hasn’t wanted a Porsche at some time.

Smitty, I’m in on the calendar. I made one through zazzle.com a couple years ago and the process was really easy. Your shop pics are a great combination of real shop work and “I wish I could do that” inspirational. You have a good eye for photo composition.

Back on topic. I got a little shop time in today and finished up a Sargent 418 that was started quite a while back

Before. Check out the wonderful square head bolt (with nut on the back of the frog) that was holding the lever cap.

After. The body was stripped, sandblasted and repainted with Rustoleum Hammered Black—everything else got an Evaporust bath before being wire brushed. Knob and tote were sanded to bare wood and finished with BLO.

Also been working on sharpening. Not quite up to Dan’s standards, but getting there.

Al, I would probably get one if the cost wasn’t crazy. I’m willing to bet there’s websites that will let you upload pictures and then print the calender for you. Maybe we could find who’s interested, and have everyone submit a picture… would only need 12 people… or 6, or 4, or 3, or 2, or just Smitty lol

^That is a fantastic plan, Mos. I know that Snapfish makes calendars b/c my Mom sends me a dog one every year. They’re pretty nice and very cheap, like $20 for only one including setup. If anyone wants to go through the trouble (lol) of finding the best pictures, they get 2 calendars on me. I think at least 11 months will be Smitty, though. I don’t know though, Mauricio and Scott have some bench pictures.

I think a calendar would be epic. We could set it up like those online t-shirt jobs. If you want one, just get it on your own.

No halfsies necessary. If you want 3/4”, tell me the length and I’ll give it to you the hard way (usps flat rate box). How does 10 inches sound; because I’ll only need 2 inches (novice). You want I should give it to you in 2 inch bursts? Because I’ll be ganging them up anyway. This is too easy. I’ll play catcher. When I get the rod, I’ll give you seconds. They may be a bit sloppy, though, rough on both ends and all. You know how to polish a rod, though.

zazzle will let you do both of those. I’m sure there are other websites that have similar progams, as well, but that is the one I have used. You can either order a certain number and that is it, or you can order and then also post the item for sale on their website and they pay you every time someone buys the item you designed. Since they print the product as it is ordered, there is no minimum quantity for a production run. The calendars are good quality and come printed on heavy photo paper. Totally worth the cost, IMHO.

Smitty, the ball is now in your court. Your adoring fans want a calendar and are willing to pay for it.

Smitty’s picture are really excellent, with a fine artistic touch.

2012 calender :

still a little more than 2 month to go.

(Link to Giuliano’s site once found in a Derek Cohen post).

If you make a downloadable version …
Paper standard in North America is not ISO. Although printer setting have generally a “fit to the paper” setting and it should not be an issue.
If you plan to put week numbers on the calendar you should be aware that the system in US is also not ISO. If you use a software like excel for instance, you have to choose the setting which suits you.

Runs on a Detroit Diesel. Might need some help to load though.. The “ProJo” weighs in at about 254 pounds, more or less. One can hit a oil drum at 25, 000 yards.

I was suppose to work this weekend. Big email cut over. The miration team needs a kick in the butt, long story that has nothing to do with woodworking or Sundays. So with the change of plans the wife and I did some rusting. (rusting can be a verb right?)

Got a nice #6 that needs new wood and a couple #4’s. I may go back this morning for a #12. Its maeked $40 but needs a blade.

Andy, I like the fact someone found a good use for an ipad.

34 oz of french pressed Joe is ungodly. Im good for 10 oz (not inches) after that the shakes set in. Now i see why you had to abandon coffee and can certainly see why you would be naked in the airport. The month of May should be titled “Desnudo en el aeropuerto” in the calender.

Smitty,
The composition in the above pic is one of your best. It is a good example of rhythm. Alternating parallel fields of different textured grays. Even though it is a still shot it possesses a quality of motion. It is hard for me to describe the nuances of art but I just drive a pick-up truck.

Al, in contrast, who drives a Porsche and who is well connected with the artsy folks of west virginia, talks about art by the way it makes him feel and how stirs his crumpled sensitive psyche. You know bull shit like that.

Been trying to find a match for a blaock plane the Craftsman sold awhile back. Dead ringer for a Stanley #220, except it is this weird “green” colour….

Maybe a 50s-60s “Aqua” flavour, or maybe a “Teal”?? nah, who would want to paint a plane TEAL?

Locking lever is a chrome thing, with a rusty rivet ( loose too) and the depth setter is also a chromed shiny thing. Iron is thick, and sharp. Trying to take the little guy apart, and got a cut…

Lever cap(????) looks like it was also that greenish tinge. Going out to menards later today ( wiring project) and will take the painted thing along. Teal Plane, imagine that one?

So, I guess that Al is supposed to be hung like a Hamster????
