Hi, this is my first attempt at writing blog. Be kind.

Here is a selection of tools that require only broken hacksaw blades, a nail, and some scraps of wood.

This tool is to enable you to easily chop out a lap dove tail.

the one in the picture hasn’t been sharpened yet as I may want to send it by post as a present

the mouse is the equivalent of a half pencil for scribing over voids. Not to be confused with the little block used for thrading sash cord that goes by the same name.

while refurbing a paramo 10, I tried out the idea of replacing the disposable blade wit a short section of hacksaw blade, suitably reduced and found that it worked quite well as a toothing plane. I’ve not tried the Stanley versions but the idea should work here. Bear in mind that these type of plane are very cheap second hand.

I hope everything is easily understood, if not, then let mr know.

paul.

spelling mistakes are related to the brain still thinking that the body is young and knows what it is doing.
I changed my key board because of all the spelling mistakes but the problem lies with my failing eyesight and the gradual decay of the body as it approaches death.

Its sad really as the brain thinks there is something else wrong besides the physical interface with the outside world, and you know what there is little we can do about it.
We can reduce the problem by recognising it and go back and re read everything a couple of times ensuring we get it right.

So what is the answer? do not use a computer at all ? then its reading measurements and seeing where I left my pencil not only dont I remember where I put it but I cannot see it as well!
But hey thats life and I for one can croak it at any time now knowing I did the best I could at the time during my life span.

Good ideas here. If a tool does what you want it to do and it’s free that’s even better. Thanks for sharing.

JIm,
Thanks for the comment. There’s another aspect to these tools also. they cannot be bought in any shop, as far as I know.

Ronald,
Thank you for your comment. I suppose that young people of today feel that they’re bulletproof, (as we did), and dont realise that, as old age approaches, they will start to lose their faculties.
Anyway, your explanation has given me carte blanche to start another blog without worrying about spelling etc.

regards,
Paul.
