Well, there has been much shuffling of feets and paws here at the shop since my last post. I won’t go into too many details, just know that there REALLY IS a lot of dust and whatnot involved in this one.
There are those that know what is going on, the where-for’s and the why’s and that is really all that needs said at this stage. Hopefully, this is a better move for me and the furry supervisor (he thinks so with a chew buddy named Jane, pics may come forth as blackmail material on his furry little butt)
Still nada to report on projects other than that they are not forgotten. The materials for them are just in a state of ‘stuffednes’ as they are packed up for travel. That will be shifting out of that state over the next few days, but I have a feeling that even being unpacked, I am not going to be able to get at them for a few. Much to setup and move around and believe me, resetting a lathe and mill is not a “there it is, good enough” project. Even cheepiechineecrap has to be bedded and trammeled if you want any accuracy out of it.
My only complaint,
It’s fricken COLD!!! Kinda got used to the ‘bake your face off ‘ looking out the window, then the ‘broil your hide’ humidity of the areas in Texas I have been in since June. July in the San Antonio area was heavenly for me once I adapted my hide to an angry sun. Last night the Voo even complained about it and wanted to burrow in with me. I relented a tad and let him in bed, ON TOP OF THE COVERS but did throw a small horse blanket over him, which he thoroughly appreciated. Even since he started shedding his summer coat, he still isn’t built for northern climes, at least not in the fur area. That ‘wash an wear’ coat of his is pretty thin on the undersides.
And with that thought, I think my most immediate and pressing project is to build a small wood stove for an RV. Brrrrrrrr.
