  • Beautiful. I reckon you could get my entire mill on either of those tables!
    It looks like that horizontal milling arbor would give good support to a gear cutter if you end up cutting any.

      • fabulous work there Dennis!

        All I've managed today is to get my teeth cleaned at the dentist, put out a load of washing and finish fixing the wife's treadmill. A hand me down from our neighbours (they wanted it out of their garage), it had loose uprights, broken brackets that connect the uprights to the side supports and an uneven base under the belt. Made new brackets for the uprights and tightened everything up last week. Today I flipped the base so that there's smooth board under the belt. Hopefully the next time I touch that thing will be to steal the motor out of it and take the frame to the scrapyard

        • Built the forms and mixed twenty-one 60 pound bags of SakCrete in a wheelbarrow. Actually this was the last two days with some other "Honey-do" jobs interspersed.

          • Did a honey do today. Chris wanted a hand towel holder for our bathroom. It’s made out of aluminum in 3 pieces fastened together with 1/4 x 20 studs. The end ball like sphere is my first attempt at ball turning.

                • Slid a 10mm drill through steel, non-stop to 4D. Like a knife through butter. Piloted first with a 5.5mm (that's what was on hand) and that was much harder going than the TiN-plated 10mm. Thanks to whoever it was that suggested parabolic drills for this!

                  • I moved the cyclone / dust collector setup.





                    Used to stand where the shop crane sits in the background. I have gotten 7 meters of PVC plastic that I will make a "wall" from to separate the wood section from the metal one, it will go just behind the DC across the room.

                    • Now I have also put up a layer of PVC drapes to protect against dust migration.

                      • Sold the oliver oc3 crawler

                        One of my favorite implements is my drag, 8’ x 8’. Weight is around 300 pounds but when it digs in it is quite heavy



                        Flat ground the B16 has pulled it OK but turning was never ideal because the front and was a little bit light



                        I added 75 lbs to the front, 24” out and it still floats the front end but I unbalanced machine a bit. It couldn’t handle going uphill

                        She can dig! Sunk to the frame in 2nd quick!


                        I had to retrieve with a bigger allis

                        • Drove out to get a sandwich, double IPA and some gas with CJ. I was complemented at the gas station by 20 something female. “Nice jeep, I had a cj7”
                          There is hope for this generation in respect to good taste (although I was in the “country”)

                          Drove back and figured I tackle one of the dead oak trees near the new Sawmill site out in the back 40+

                          I prefer an axe for the exercise and I also like to hear the tree as it gives and comes down.

                          Bucking to 10’ or so for hauling and de-limbing , I’m all chainsaw.
                          Using my 4.5’ crosscut saws on the ground or swinging an axe toward myself=done with that

                          I then cut to firewood size with a crosscut, slow but = more double ipa in my future

                              • Gimli glider would be a more fitting example. The 767 that the pilots screwed up the fuel calculation.
