Dave – all I had for years in college was a bike too. In the winter I had a duffle bag (big Army style) that held all my cold weather clothing when I got OFF the bike on campus.

Yep – below 50 degrees on the bike gets real bone chilling…....Randy – what do (or did?) you ride?

Dave – question…....I picked up a set of DMT diamond paste – you think I can use an MDF disc on the worksharp and make that work? Or do you need the special DMT disc?

Mornin guys,

I will have to record something and post it with my new guitar. I got a Martin D-16GTE last night. She sings like a bird, now I wish I was worthy of playing it.

remodelling has to wait a bit while I play with my new toy.

Jeff the dmt kit provides a disk that has a thin denim material adhered to it. I would get a mdf disk and 3m some bed sheet to the top of it.
I will get you a picture of the disk this afternoon
Ham I hope you enjoy that new toy.

Good morning everyone.
Ham, you deserve a little musical interlude with your new Martin, enjoy.
Well, I have been “off” for several reasons over the past week. I have been playing nurse to Sandra, who is now almost back up to speed, the great washing machine requiem, and falling over twice at the weekend. Got lots of bruises and lots of aches which I am dealing with and a lot of chores which I can’t get to.
Following the demise of the washer, which served us well for over 20 years, we have a replacement coming today with some high hopes that it may last as long as the old Monkey Ward’s Admiral – yeah right. We got this new machine on a 6 month interest free deal, so we will be making snacks and dog treats to get it paid for, hopefully in record time.
I did manage to completely dismantle that huge garment rack (20 ft) that I constructed earlier this year when the infamous garage sale took place, and I have installed a new Internet W/L router that I have had for about 6 months, the old one suffered from getting “stuffed up” too much and required resetting every day, sometimes more.
Shop time is earmarked for Thursday after I have gone and got my drivers license renewed – yeah it’s THAT time.

So I hope everyone has a great day and does something really remarkable and gratifying. Be Safe.

Admiral? I wouldn’t want a washer from a company that also makes TVs. So, we bought an LG. Is there anything LG doesn’t sell?
Seriously, some of that Monkey Wards stuff was good stuff. I had a Wards 4” belt sander that just wouldn’t die. Finally gave it away. MIL had a kitchen full of appliances she bought at Wards. Don’t know if they were all made for/by them, but they were old when I was dating her daughter and she still had them when she passed, 9 years ago.

Gene, actually the new washer is an Electrolux, and LG used to make, a while back, really really crappy monitors under their real name Lucky Goldstar….better to use LG as a disguise to Lucky Goldstar. That said, they do now produce pretty decent goods.
A while ago I was offered an old Ward’s shaper – an exclusive brand sold by them, and for $25 with 6 sets of cutters it was a steal, made in the USA. I used to love Ward’s scratch and dent sales, great bargains, in fact the surviving dryer to the old washer is still in use and the dent in the front panel has never bothered anyone. I also have an upright freezer from Ward’s I purchased in 1991, and it still works like a champ.

For those interested parties, here’s a shot of the lamp after the final coat of finish was on. I will have more photos and a project post in the next day or so.
What else have I been up to besides general shop maintenance and cleanup?

Cypress blocks.

I said I would not buy anymore #4 planes. How can you pass up a $1 deal though?

I also said a shelf was all I would ever need for my puny little plane collection. It started taking up more shelf space than originally anticipated though.
Also, I’ve been to a family reunion this past weekend I may talk about.

I will eventually post on all this and more. I’m sorry, since a recent doctor’s visit, I haven’t actually been in a very talkative mood. I’ll recover, accept, and overcome. Till then, I thought ya’ll might like an update.

Before I go though, I think some of you may like to see the top of the lamp body with light shining down on it. I found it one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in a long time. I’m a little biased though.

Added to the existing inventory…..

Anyone have an Erector set growing up? I had one….then years later, got my Dad’s set…this stuff reminds me of that…....except the holes are not pre-drilled and requires a bit of planning before creating cool stuff…..

Now – what to build…....hmmmmm

It is morning again already.

I got quite a bit of cleaning up and additional demo of the kitchen done preparing to move some more cabinets.

I also spent a bit of time practicing. Funny, how I can find time to practice after I bought a new quitar. I think I am going to devise a storage case/music stand/amp case for it so I don’t have to fight with the case to practice, but it will have a protected place to live while I am not playing it. I think that project needs to wait until the kitchen is done though or Miss J might have a few words to say that preachers normally do not use.

Jeff,

WHy do they call that 80/20? That looks like the legs that go into the riser/platform system for the stage at the theatre I perform in. I have often been covetous of that as I have many times considered raising the floor of my shop so that the duct collection pipes are not in the way of walking and sweeping. Those would be the perfect supports for a floor. It also looks like they would make killer supports for lumber storage and the like.

William,

That lamp is just incredible. I was a little unsure of the proportions when I first saw it, but it has really grown on me and I like it a lot.

The first cup is gone and time to fetch the second. Have a great day everyone.

Mornin’ all,

Ham – congrats on the new guitar! 80/20 is really the company name usually associated with this stuff (8020.net). The stuff I have is actually made by Parker IPS. They do call out the profiles based on cross section. The stuff I have is 40mm, so 40-40 for the square stuff and 40-80 for the rectangular stuff.

The stuff can be used for lots of things, including your floor, but it’s really spendy!! I got mine for the cost of cleaning it up….I’ve used this stuff to build my router table and also my workbench base…......very sturdy for sure…..

Have a great day!

Good morning, morning people.
Ham, looks like your new instrument has inspired another project. Hope you get a lot of pleasure with the ax.

Jeff, those extrusions are really nice and are ideal material for all manners of construction and project ideas.

Well Dave,.....there you are. The early morning Ebay shopper, what will you find today?

William, I can only echo the other comments on the lamp, it is just exceptional.

The washer problem is solved with the installation of a new one which I hope will last a long time like it’s predecessor. Sandra spent hours trying out all the different settings and got a ton of backlog washing done, so now I have clean underwear on. lol
Today I have more work to do in the garage and I’ll also be taking the lumber from the clothes rack I took apart to the shop and hopefully be able to spent some time there, I’ll just have to see how everything goes. Whatever I get to do, I will be content with as at last I am up on my feet and able to do more.

Everyone have a great day and be safe.

As far as the shop goes, it will be continuing the great refurb, and I’ll make sure I don’t go over the top as I have before which led to more down time. Knowing when to quit is a new virtue I have to master. lol
