  1. madonna and child

    Looks like that granite cliff, El Capital, in Yosemite National Park in California that those climbers challenge. Or if I took a picture of our , supposed to be, flat grassy yard and put it beside your picture we would have a matching pair. I had to change to hill hugging knobby tires the first week after buying the mower.
  2. I get to start another project

    Starting to put some color here and there. I thought I would see what he looks like with his tongue sticking out. Not impressed!
  3. DeWalt 733 planer died today

    Is that black soot I see? If so, something got way too hot!
  4. I get to start another project

    Well I'm at a stage where I don't know what I'm doing. Actually from the start after seeing another clown picture, it started. Not know what to do first through what ever steps I might be at now. I want to make a happy clown. I remember Emit way back there and he was always sad so I am still trying to learn happy features...and here I am trying to make a bow-tie look presentable!! Wow, one small grind too deep and every thing changes. I told someone the other day in the shop, all I have to do is grind away the un wanted wood and thats it... Only one request so far, Lew is wanting red balloons. Don't worry, still space left for a bunch of them.
  5. the news is talking about CC Cleaner being infected with malware through that credit reporting company, can't remember the name.. but it sounds like who ever is using it might better check and see.
  6. DeWalt 733 planer died today

    I had to go out to the shop and see if my 733 has that breaker. Never noticed it before. Yours is a type 1 and mine a type 2 but they do look the same. Can you get to the wires on the breaker and by pass it just to see if that is what the trouble is. I do that to my riding mower at times just for my way of eliminating things. Too bad you don't have a good Dewalt service center close. This place has a shop full of guys who knows their stuff..never taken the planer but the 788 scroll saw they knew exactly what I was explaining two different times. My breaker wiggles like you say yours does. I did have dirt dobbers fill a cut off saw full of their homes and could not get it to run. I went in the house and told my wife her brother brought back the saw he borrowed months ago and it will not work. And I said he even put a new blade on it I guess to cover the cost of fixing it but that was kind of strange.... Later I tore it down and realized after I cleaned out all the dried mud it ran like a new one.........I never did have the heart to tell her brother what I thought of him for a while.....

    Call the Dewalt service center and see how they feel about it. I have a 733 bought about the same time. Still no problem but I been thinking about putting a new set of brushes in now before they go out. I have better luck changing them before they are needed on any of the motors. The service center I use , Fort Worth, have some very good people at what they do and hopefully there is a service center close to you. You have checked everything I would check
  8. What do you see?

    Gene I only use 1/8" shaft size on all the carving. Totem poles and large bears I don't do so I don't use anything bigger.
  9. What do you see?

    Cut the dark areas about an 1/8 of an inch deeper than the rocks. A flexshaft on a Dremel with a good carbide bit from Wood Carvers Supply I think works the best. The handpiece is small enough to handle easily. www.woodcarverssupply.com Only one bit is needed a kutzall #265051. or maybe a kutzall #265082 depending on how wide the grove needs to be. These Kutzall bits will last a long time. These bits will leave the surface ruff kinda like concrete looks. If you want the surface smooth which in you case no then a diamond covered bit after you use the course bit would do that. It looks great but needs the extra depth to see and feel.
  10. Making maw happy

    Hopefully I hope it gets me a free meal and other things,?? So this time I thought I would add some cattle brands that might add to the importance of the statemen this picture is making or what ever... Well after I added all the brands I could think of and a few that aren't brands that only the well versed would catch the intruders... Then after I finished and sit it in the house awaiting delivery I got to thinking, which is hard to do anymore, Why don't I put only the registered cattle brands of the county we live in the next time I do a frame for her. Might ever make the picture sell quicker. Okay I go and look up, registered cattle brands of Breckenridge, Tx. This caused me another problem for there are many pages of brands registered with the county clerk.... So do I piss off some of the closer more affluent ranchers as not having enough room for all of them on a glass frame just simply leave them off...?? Surly the one cow ranch with a registered brand should be left off but hey I don't want to have to call all the ranchers and ask how many cows are branded on their spread, do I?? I just don't know if all those brands are current or did some quit ranching when the owners got killed in those poker games in the 1780'ies I sure hope yu'all don't mention I don't do as good of a finish for her frames as I do on the stuff I make!! It might do away with the free things in the future.
  11. I get to start another project

    Why not do him? Glued the pattern on about noon and I'm about ready to start grinding. Wife had lots of glass to make frames for and finally got through with her stuff.
  12. New product

    If I leave my key in the car, the doors will not lock.
  13. 5 Walnut plaques

    I use biscuits on all my edge joining only closer together than in the picture. Just lets me sleep better at night. And I am fond of sleep. I also do this from time to time to see if I am applying the right amount of glue in each slot. Its hard when using different applicators on different glue brands to get the same amount. When I have enclosed biscuits in wood I didn't use I like to cut them open and see ... But this is like guys who say they would never buy a joiner for they can do a perfect edge job with their table saw!!! WRONG!! You can see the many years of practice is still not good enough. But I'm learning!
  14. First Christmas ornaments this year and a couple bowls

    Here while back someone said not to brag about anyones work for they might hoop over to that better wood site. Okay I won't but hey they do look great and I can tell he is married to his lathe. I wonder what site he was talking about???
  15. How to fumigate furniture

    I've been using Home Defense for ocasional ants we find in the house. I spray it in out of the way places. Can't remember who make it . If its in a plastic bag you need from time to time open the bag and let some dry air in or else you got more problems. It says its safe to use inside the house???
