  1. Turning a bowling ball is a challenge that I won't do. I turn small acrylics and the ribbons of plastic mess up my lathe and whole area. It gets in threads, chucks, etc, not to mention all over me and the shop too. I don't use my Vac, I think it would plug up the hose and hang up on the impeller, etc.
  2. I was in HD last week and potted tomato plants was $16.98 This morning they are $19.98 Lets all rush out and get them while we can

  4. I have a lunch box story also. In the early days of my job, everyone packed a lunch box and all were set in one place in a lunch room. There were many different kinds, from very old hand-me-downs, to the latest with the best stainless thermos bottles. One puzzled me. It was a full sized woven picnic basket. I was anxious to see who had it and what he had in something that large. Soon I got my answer and it was a surprise. He was one of the smallest guys there and his basket was FULL of sandwiches, fruit and desert. To my amazement.......he ate all of it, every day.
  5. I saw a lathe tool that could be used on a lathe up to____ inches of swing. I looked it up and that was confusing too: Many lathes are specified with multiple dimensions for swing, so you might see: Swing over bed: 10" Swing over carriage 8" Swing over compound 6" What does it mean to you?
  6. Kilroy was a weld inspector and left his mark on ship construction welds. The mark ment it was inspected and OK'd. After that, it became popular and everyone was making one. Thats the story I read and it sounds possible.
  7. I made a couple of these for my family and got another request for a couple more. I made them out of Cedar fencing boards and painted with some fence stain/preservative. I made each finger and then joined with glue. After the glue set, I made a cut thru the knuckle and put in a spline. I also drilled all the way thru the fingers and glued in a small dowel to hold the fingers together. The childrens sunglasses came from the Dollar store

  11. We no longer have "A" coon problem. We now have 2 of them and they were fighting last night under my neighbors deck. When we first told them there was a coon in our yard, they didn't take us seriously and kind of chuckled. I guess the coon problem has a new owner. To be continued
