Rex I am so happy you are feeling a lot better and have the gumption to get her done. Are there any young boys around you that would help in the moving of the heavy shop items?

I’m back after feeding and sitting down with some great coffee, and reading through all the posts to catch up.

First of all, Happy Birthday DIY -Randy, maybe you won’t be sober enough to read this right now, so don’t forget to check the posts on Sunday when the headaches are finished. Also, sorry I have no pics. :-( I did take the camera in to take them, and asked for a group shot, and they said OK, when they have their next break The sad news is, when they started the main chemo IV (I have 2 other bags of “stuff” before that), I nodded off and when they came around at the start of their break, I was sound asleep, so the went off for their very late lunch break. I woke up as I was being unhooked, there was a different crew on that I did not know and I had to vacate the treatment cubicle, so I went home. Next time !!!!!

After reading the the Stumpy related posts, I reckon he’s gotta be our next Roast victim..:-)

William, I’ll get to see your lamp a bit later.

Bags, my son is an OTR driver and he is very busy, not seen him since July 4th.

Yes Virginia, there IS a Santa Claus, in form of JL7 – Jeff and he does live where there is a lot of snow and ice.
Well, I didn’t leave any milk and cookies out, but Santa sent me some absolutely fabulous wood to build a Christmas tree with.:-) I promise I will only use it for firewood when (or if I ever) a have people quality people of means standing on rungs high up on the ladder of wealth and successes. :-)
Now for the serious part: I am absolutely thrilled, grateful and inspired to make some worthwhile project to show. I have been utterly fortunate to have had now 4 LJs who have given me wonderful pieces, which up until now, I have kept in a safe place. So after some practicing on pine first, I will bite the bullet and actually use these appreciated gifts. Thank you so much.

Shop time start tomorrow, and I’ll give it all I’ve got, the revolution has begun.

You go git-r-dun there Rex! Let the chips & saw dust fly. I think you need to come up with a project, access the process and get the shop ready for those processes. I say; TO HELL with getting the shop perfect, as that is an impossible task (an insane one too!!!).

Besides the more time you spend gettin’ the shop ready, is less time for you to “ramble” here on LJs.

Randy, I understand what you say about getting the shop done first and I’m sure many will agree with you, so let me explain better.
The shop was set up almost 4 years ago when I was a “normal” person, but after 4 surgeries and cancer I’m no longer a “normal” person ( I hear the back row tittering), so I must have to get it done so that I can work unimpeded. I have to be able to do a fair amount of sitting doing things, can’t bend over much and can’t lift or move things very much. So my first job is to get everything where I can reach it, lift it, move it and I throughway for my wheelchair when I need it. When you are not normal, there is a lot of things you have to find a way around. BTW, when I’m in the shop for more time, the laptop goes with me.

Happy Thanksgiving y’all from the great white north.
Sun is just coming up and I just heard a volley from the duck hunters up the lake.
Had the best sleep I’ve had in months last night.
Little cloudy out. Hope it doesn’t rain. Rain really affects the smoking process. At least it does for me.
Looking forward to a turkey dinner with my son and his wife and my granddaughter.
Afterwards there’ll be bowling on the WIi.
Gotta go walk the dog.

Good Morning friends,

Coffee is already drunk and there is a fire in the shop stove. I have a shop tip that I offer up free of charge to everyone and even give up my copyright to it. It is always a wise policy to check to see that the cap is on tightly on the stove polish bottle before you start shaking vigorously as the label instructs. The consequences of failing to heed this warning are funny black spots in interesting spray patterns all over your walls, benches and miscellaneous tools etc. in the way.

It is good to be back in the shop.

Good morning all misfits and wannabe’s.
God, it’s 54 degrees here, with a high of 60 forecast.
Sandra has a temperature over 101 degrees, so I have to keep away from her today, and what place better is for me to go to the shop. :-( lol. If I stay in the house with her I will have to wear a mask because my resistance is very low due to the chemo.

Ham, sounds like you are on one of my meds. lol

Bags, hope you have a great time, sounds like a nice get together, enjoy.

Hi William, how are you feeling today?

Marty, donuts sound just right, send me a couple.

Evening all.
I was going to sound nutty and crazy with something to give you all a laugh.
Then I got on here and seen that helix head that Jeff got.
I have to comment on that with no jokes.

I, for one, will be anxiously awaiting your analysis on the performance of it.
You see, I have a serious plan on how to afford one of those one day.
My plan is that one day my wife is going to do something real serious.
She’s gonna wreck my truck or have an affair maybe.
I’m gonna forgive her.
And she’s gonna buy me a helix head for my planer.
Now, my wife doesn’t have anymore money than me.
So she may have to sell her kidney,
Or her soul to the devil.
She’ll do whatever it take though to hang on to a hunk like me.

See?
I do come up with serious plans.
This one can’t fail.
I will have me a helix head for my planer too.

I have them in both my Grizzly machines that the VA bought me. I have both a 15” planer and a 6” jointer and there is nothing better. I never have to change blades or sharpen them just replace th carbide cutters.

I have done quite abit of both of them and the carbide still has not dulled yet and I have not turned the bits yet either which is another good savings.

Today, Vicksburg had their annual courthouse square fall festival flea market thingy.
We started the day with the wife and kids at Shipleys for donuts and chocolate milk (coffee for me of course).
Then we were off to the flea market.
I didn’t have much money, but I knew what I was looking for.
This year, I have gotten more into hand tools and that’s what I had on my mind.
I seen about ten different planes in ten different booths.
This was when I realized that the sellers at this annual flea market are crazy as hell.
If I hear, “but it’s an antique” one more freakin’ time, I’m gonna scream.

I’m no hand plane expert like some of you here, but:
A small wooden plane, I believe Dave called it a coffin plane, is not worth $80 when it is cracked down one side so badly that I wasn’t even sure I could repair it to be useable.
A #5 Bailey is not worth $150 when a huge chunk is broken out of the side of the body. No ma’am, it was not made that way. You can see the grinder marks where someone crudely rounded over the edges so they wouldn’t be sharp.
A wooden transistional plane about 18” long is not worth $300 with no kind of markings on it. No sir, these are not rare just because you tell they were made as a combined effort between a local carpenter and a blacksmith. And yes, they were at one time mass produced. They are not, in my opinion, rare, hard to find antiques.
And a slender wooden bodied router plane with what looks like a roundover bit in it (I don’t know what they’re called, they’re the kind Stumpy sometimes has hanging behind him in the videos that hold a narrow profiled blade. Each one has it’s own dedicated blade though) is definately NOT a Stanley #45 worth $200.

I did hear some interesting stories about WHY some of these people thought these planes were worth so much. I, unfortunately, came home with no new toys though.
I did figure out how to get rich though. I just need to do like one guy there, cut various sizes of the same patterned cross out of MDF, attached cut nails at three point of it, call it art, and go around the country to flea markets selling them for $49 a piece. I could make a killing at that.
Better yet, I could do like another lady, use doorknobs for the perches on badly built birdhouses and get $100 for them.
Either way, I can’t go wrong.
Oh I forgot.
This won’t make me money.
Even I can’t bullshit as good as these salesman were.

Bags, I was completely serious.

Arlin, everything I’ve read on them tells me I want one.
My bill to cash flow ratio tells me I’ll never have one.

Jeff, I’m a little concerned about the affair part of the plan.
Since she married me, we know she’s not a very good judge of men.
