      • Did some digging and foundation work a while ago.



        Pressure washed the block. Filled the bonds where the block layers did not strike them or parge the block, then blok koted the wall.

          • More work on my stone wall along the shoulder of Warren Road. Finished the course from the stone steps to the driveway:


            Well, actually, there is still a small section that needs some work:


            The steps look pretty good, but could use some improvement. Maybe some mortar mix?


            There is a pretty nice stream on the other side of the road. Now that there is little traffic, especially at night, I can hear the gurgling:

            • Today for the 1st time since my Christmas Eve quadruple Bypass...

              *I went to the range and renewed my membership.
              *Shot my 40 yr old Mini-14 that hasn’t left the safe in 19 years. Got 4” groups at 50 yards with the iron sights.
              *Followed up with my AR and reduced the groups to 3”. The sights on the AR are really that much better.
              *Did a make ready and rode my ‘97 Honda Valkyrie . I started it every 3 weeks and it runs fine.
              *Ordered some pinion wire to make some gears I searched online for 6 hrs yesterday and never found. I’ll slice up the whole length and sell the ones I don’t need on eBay. If I need them, someone else does too.
              *Gave my 2 dogs a bath outside.
              *Watched Puppy Dog Pals and Mickey Mouse with my granddaughter.
              *Did some housekeeping in my workshop.
              *Had some great Chinese Food for dinner.
              *Now I’m watching Knightfall.

              Gotta make the most of my day off.
              Gotta wake up at 3:30 tomorrow.

              I’m back at work again after 16 weeks off, doing 12 hr shifts out in the units and showing the junior set how it’s done. Gonna work the next 3 days.

              • Disassembled and cleaned a boring head:


                Never heard of the brand Magnadyne, can't even find any info on it.

                EDIT:
                I also went out and looked at my other tooling (that I have never been able to use yet), none have these "drive lugs" on them even if they got thread for a draw bar. They got cutouts instead, just like the machines horizontal and vertical spindles have got. I would have thought one side would be "male" and one "female". Is there supposed to be some kind of inbetween adapter plate?

                    • dang, Ridgerunner and Paul, you've been busy!

                      me, I did my quarterly trip to the scrapyard. Took in 85lb of scrap and batteries (made for a slow'n'steady ride on the bike!), came out with 16lb of alu pieces, a right angle reducer (future rotary table I hope!) AND $4.50. Immediately spent $1.35 of that on a chocolate bar to go with my coffee

                        That rang a bell with me. Checked and I have one too, on a 30INT arbor. The dial is marked with 78 divisions. Body is 3.2in diameter. No drive lugs or cutouts - all plain. Interesting to see that it uses a bronze bush.

                        • One division of 78 divisions would correspond to 0.001" radial movement on a 2-mm-pitch screw or 0.001" diametral movement on a 1-mm-pitch screw.

                              Is the motor on the left a 9.9 or 15 HP? If it is a 9.9, can you make it a 15 just by swapping the cover from the other one? Will the buyer be able to tell the difference once it is on a boat?

                                Both are 15's. I've heard that 9.9's are pretty gutless compared to a 15. I've never owned or ridden in a boat with a 9.9.

                                I assume both have the same block, pistons, and all. Is it just a carb that changes it from a 9.9 to a 15?
