      Thanks Tom. Yeah, all the Kawarthas are so full of perch. Back when my Grandparents had their Cottage on Crowe river in Marmora I would have loved a big perch lure like this, as it would have dominated for pike and muskie. The cottage has long been sold, but I want to go back and throw this in all my old "honey holes" for old times sake.

        Going back to old places after a very long time, sometimes is very strange. Went back myself this summer to places I haven't been in almost 40 years and, although they haven't changed, they don't feel the same as they did back then. I suppose the big change is in us

          Yeah it's a always a strange feeling revisiting old memories. It's only been 15 years, but I know from google earth that the new owners have built a giant addition and huge deck down to the water level. No doubt it would be a well over $1mil dollar place now. We tore down an old shack and built the cottage back in about '87-'88. Would not look the same at all now, but the fishing would still be good. Was always good fishing there .

            Thanks. I haven't done any "intentional" muskie fishing in a long time either. Seems I've always caught more by accident than on purpose lol. Fish of a thousands cast they say....

            Glued it all together tonight, and put the fins in. DONE.

            Really looks great Good luck with catching the big one.

            The only one I ever caught was an accident / surprise while fishing in a lagoon on Erie's Presque isle peninsula. I was a 12 year old kid trying to learn to cast a silver flatfish, and not really expecting to catch anything. It was a small fish, just over the 30" limit, and I didn't know what it was. While I was dragging it onto the shore my dad came running and yelled at me to not get near it's mouth. We didn't know there were any game fish left in lake Erie at that time because of the pollution. Now that I live a thousand miles away, the lake is cleaned up and stocked with some nice fish.

            • Had a total replacement of my left knee (10 weeks after having my right hip replaced). Arrived at hospital a 7 am, on table at 9, in recovery at 10:30, rocked the PT goals at 1:30, walked through the back door of my home at 3 pm.

              Doc said my knee was 16 degrees bow legged (normal is +/- 3 degrees) and the bottom of my femur had worn a trench in the tops of the two lower leg bones. Robotic assist surgery, he was able to correct everything and align my leg to 3 degrees bowed. He is pleased, I am delighted.

              So far the pain is quite tolerable. Am able to walk easily with just a cane for occasional and mild balance issues.

              • DrMike and the machining content?! Come on, what sort of finish did the new knew have?!
                Hope it goes well for you. The one thing I can pass on (2nd hand but seen it both for and against) is that you get out what you put in. You don't do the exercises they give you, you don't get the mobility back. You do and there's a good chance you'll be telling everyone how it was the best thing you ever did. If there's something stopping you doing the exercises, like swelling or something, you go find out what to do about it early or bore us all with the complaining later. Also, just take a stock check while you remember what it was like before you had it done....and remember that as a benchmark for later. You start comparing it to how you were when you were 18 and you'll be disappointed. </20c> Yeah, I know that's more cents than traditional....let's just say I'm invested. Hope you do great.

                  Started prepping for these two surgeries back in February, walking and heavy kettlebell workouts, trashing both hip and knee in the process, hurt a lot. As a result with the hip I was walking around the block in two days, mowing my lawn at 3 weeks and my PT actually signed off on my hip early and spent the last two sessions showing me how to prep for the knee. Followed her suggestions and more heavy kettlebells getting ready for knee, hurt a lot. And this afternoon I walked a 1/4 mile on a knee that was 3 hours old.

                  I’m all about putting in the work, especially since I am the one reaping the benefit. Can’t wait to start official PT for the knee, may be the first time I’ve been able to exercise with decreasing pain in over 20 years.

                  • Last week I replaced both tap cartridges (Emco brand) in my kitchen sink and I noticed the past couple of day that the cold water tap was changing in the way it screwed down to shut the water off and vice versa so I pulled it apart again and found the screw that holds the flat washer was backed out letting the washer float. If I had just left it and kept using it I am sure the screw would have fallen out and/or the washer would have likely jammed and not shut off the water flow. I tried tightening it but there was nothing to tighten it against; screw it in against the washer and the washer just deformed and the screw was still loose so I did some measurements and made a pair of small spacer rods from a piece of brass rod I had laying around that was just the right diameter to drop in the #10 screw holes of both cartridges to give the screws something to actually tighten against while compressing the rubber just a few thou.

                      By popular request of an individual I would like to introduce you to the production of this device.

                      It is expressly desired that others who have built this device also contribute to it.

                      I do not want to create this theme as a solo entertainer. whistle: whistle: :whistle:


                      How it all began.
                      A few years ago I got my hands on the book "WORKSHOP TECHNIQUES" by G.H.Thomas from England.
                      This book contains some useful accessories for the lathe and milling machine.
                      Also the Pillar Tool, which G.H.Thomas had designed.
                      The detailed drawings in this book are drawn in imperial scale.
                      For my machine I have adapted the dimensions to the metric system.

                      I made the machine without the available castings.
                      The material comes from the steel trade and from the scrap yard of a company.

                      The skin column is made of 22mm 115CrV3 steel from the steel trade.
                      The support arms I made from GG25 continuous casting from a steel company.
                      The base plate was assembled from a total of three parts.

                      I milled the support arms out of the solid material. That gave a lot of cast iron shavings and a lot of mess.

                        Beautiful work! I have the same book, I am making my own version of his "Versatile Dividing head". Using old steel scrap and junk parts.

                        • If by "versatile" you mean HV rotary table clamped onto a table far too small for it, I'm right there with you. Gotta make it work!
                          What did I do today? I made 2.98mm x 9mm diameter delrin dowels from 10mm bar....to fill the 3mm holes I'd drilled in the wrong place . I blame the distraction...but it's clearly one of those 'blame something else because the alternative is thst it's my fault' scenarios.

                          Took them in one pass from 10mm to 3. I know it's only plastic but its a fair chunk larger DoC than Im used to and needed it to support the stock in the absence of tailstock support....that I broke.

                              • Well then, from the production of the individual parts I unfortunately have no pictures.
                                When I start something like this, the focus is on the production and not on taking pictures.
                                So there are only pictures of the finished part.

                                The main column is set down to 20mm. To be able to finish it I had to use the fixed Lynette. In my lathe spindle I only get max 20mm in.
                                The clamping screws were made according to a drawing. The clamping nuts are made of brass and are secured against twisting by a small 1,5mm pin. For this purpose a 1,5mm slot is milled into the clamping nuts.
                                The clamping screws themselves were made with a ball turning device, which I had built about 20 years ago.

                                Now I would like to introduce the parts of the drilling unit.
                                The complete spindle is inserted into the drilling unit carrier and is exchangeable.
                                The spindle runs in bronze bearings, which are about 25mm long at the top and bottom. The belt pulley is uncoupled from the drilling spindle and separately mounted in bronze. Therefore the belt tension has no influence on the actual spindle.
                                The power is transmitted by a small 2mm key that engages in the 2mm groove of the drilling spindle.
                                The drill chuck sits on a small Jakobs 0 locating cone and can be replaced if necessary.
