Nope, still nuthin’.
Sorry for lack of posts, jes not a whole lot to say right now. Spud is still in recovery. K, Soffitrat’s wife is under going chemo then a round of rad therapy for breast cancer, so if’n yah can, send a prayer or well wishes as appropriate.
Myself, same ol’ same ol’. Typical questionable drama at work, not knowing if we are holding water or ready to go under in this economy (despite the fact that people are still dying to get into our products,,,). The sawmill is still in “work in progress” status but coming along. R&D is much easier when money isn’t a deciding variable, LOL. All in all, the project is still on the success road. Cost is still under $300 and the goal was to keep it under $500 so I still have some wiggle room if need be. I have another project in the works as well for a foot powered grinder. Found with the machining of pieces for the saw, I have a real need for a water cooled grinder that is not reliant on AC power. (Never have been comfortable mixing iron laden water with house current. Gee, I wonder why? ;-p ) Yup, HSS bits really hate getting heated up during refacing and I have quite few that need attention. This is one project where I already have all I need, I just need t put it all together.
And all of this while watching the world burn. LOL. We certainly do live in interesting times, no?
More when I actually have something to share or raise Kane about.
