      • Over the past few days I (with help as needed from John)

        1. Cleared weeds, bushes, trees, and deadfalls from the hill behind the house


        2. Cleaned the gunked up carburetor and got my brush trimmer running


        3. Rewound new nylon rope on the pull starter of my MTD Yard Machine and got it running


        4. Cut some branches that were hanging over the power and cable lines

        5. Cut up the trunk of the large double locust tree that had clipped the corner of the roof of my house


        6. Realized that the bearings in my old corded electric chainsaw are about shot. Repair (again) or replace?

        • Changed oil on the z3, did a general inspection, and fixed a few small issues. My left front strut is leaking, I guess that's on the to-do list.

          • Pulled my hamstring pretty bad last night at ball trying to beat out a poorly hit ground ball. Layed up today on the couch. Got some design work to finish on some personal projects and might make it downstairs later to do some lure work if I start getting stir crazy. Bad time of year to get hurt (playoffs), but it's my own damn fault for not stretching.

                    • Got suckered today. Bought one of those magnetic swarf collecting sticks that I thought would be useful for - well, collecting swarf. Gave it a quick try.....and was surprised to find it just snaps to the chip tray or the ways. Goes to show you; educated doesn't mean not stupid!
                      May at least remove some of the finer splinters from around the mill area that keep getting me; although if I ever complete the move to a steel bench...!

                        Even better after you magnetize the lathe bed and mill table so that the swarf sticks and stands pointy end up..

                          One of these with the long handle is handy for picking up swarf on the floor that's stringy and clings to a broom but no use whatsoever for cleaning off the mill table or lathe chip pan.

                          • I stopped in at the local thrift shop. I usually ignore the glass cases with watches, cameras and jewelry. Today a person was blocking the aisle with a stroller so I checked out the merchandise under glass while waiting for her to move on. I spotted a baggie full of combination wrenches for $8. On closer inspection there were 3 baggies with 8 to 12 Craftsman wrenches per bag. These were the old ones with crisp lettering and nicely ground edges.

                            I'd been thinking of picking up a few more wrenches from Harbor Freight to dedicate to individual machines or to modify to fit odd spaces so I bought all three bags. They were having a 25% off sale, so the price dropped to $6 each. Then they added a Senior citizen discount and it went down to $15 for the whole mess. One bag of SAE and two bags of Metric.

                            Pictures? No Need. You guys have seen wrenches before.
                            At the end of the project, there is a profound difference between spare parts and extra parts.

                              • Replaced the lights in my loft - aka the place I'm crating and storing everything that doesn't need to be taking up the space I don't have in my 'shop.
                                Put in some LED tape a few years back and they've slowly been popping and got to the point where there are more blown than working. Picked up some 20W LED fittings with Samsung LEDs (not for the power saving so much as cutting down heat output!) in them for about ten bucks each. They're supposed to be fitted into existing light grills but the mounting clips screw to a wooden batton just as well. Some Wago connectors in boxes (hey, if you're gonna do something eh?) and the smallest twin & earth available (more than ten time over-rated still) and with four of them up there for the coverage around the stacks of stuff it, like daylight.
                                Joy of a job though. All the timber up there is that rough sawn stuff that seems to be like concentrated splinters. And woe betide you if you should disturb the insulation!
                                A beer, a shower and some time with the tweezers fixed it though
