Default Just Touching Basees...

In that so many member were kind enough to be interested in me after not posting to the forum for so long, I need to give you an update.

I'm not sure that an update is the correct word. I have not continued to post due to the fact that I had still not been in the shop and nothing much to talk about.

Well, the good news is that did get out to the shop today, the weather has warmed up and I have been feeling better.

What a mess it was that greeted me when opened the shop doors, as many of you know, my shop is relatively large one and so the mess is also large.

All of cast iron had surface rust on it along with dirt and grim. I started with the table saw, the router table and the Incra LS positioner for the router table.

After about two hours I was very tired but I had all of the items mentioned above all sanitary and waxed. Sure felt good to be able to get back out there and get started on the clean up. Hopefully, I will be able continue and have the shop ready to use in a few weeks. The weather will have a lot to do with that.

One of the side issues is that the yard between the shop and the house has all be rooted up by the ferrel hogs. Our entire yard clear around hous ihas been rooted up by these hogs. I need to find person with a good blade to come in and work on the mess. The hogs did all the damage in a period of about a week and have not been back.

It is estimated that there are over five million of the hogs in the state, I may have mentioned this earlierk, I just don't recall.

Any way, that's what is goig on with mee.

I purchased an Incra 1000HD miter gaubge for my brother for Christmas. It got lost in the shipping and a second one had to be sent. Twelve ldays later the first one finally arrived. We are sending it back of course. Bob, my brother, is turning bowlss, as I may have told you earlier, I'm waiting to see if the miter gauge will work for cutting segments instead of using a sled.

If anyone wants to clklen up my spelling, he or she is sure welcome to do so, as I can barely see to type this. The letters all run into each other and keep jumping around, but I am grateful that I am not completely blind. So if you can put up with my typing, I'lll keep trying to post from time to time.

Keep up the tappitapin'. Always happy to hear how you're doing. Good thing you caught the rust early.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Jerry it sounds like you need a few rifles to boot. We don't have those hogs around here but I can imagine the mess they create. What state are you in? I'm in the early stages of shoulder replacement recovery and have some use at this point but limited to weight and range of motion. Heck sometimes just tying with the left hand is tight especially early in the morning but it does feel good when I can at least go down to the shop and piddle. The shop is my sanctuary, a place that I can relax and just try to be creative. I think of it as my therapy room and if you ask some people I need plenty of time in that room.

Sorry to hear about the hogs but glad you're feeling like getting back in the shop.

I also haven't had much time to check on Router Forums, lately. I am glad to see you on here.
I'm sorry to learn of the hogs and their destruction to your property. I hope you can soon get a resolution to that problem.
The State of Texas probably has a wildlife expert they can point you toward.
My brother hunts wild hogs here in Georgia and says they're pretty good to eat.

Some people visit Barber Shops to get human hair to put-out on their property to scare-off wild animals.

I get angry about the skunks digging up grubs in my lawn. Glad we don't have those hogs around here!

Good to hear from you, Jerry, and thanks for reminding me... I better go clean and wax my cast iron soon.

Jerry its nice to see you are doing OK, I was also thinking that Incra miter jig would be handy for segmenting so tell everyone how it goes. N

Jerry, Glad to hear that you're able to get out of the house and into the shop. I hope Vesta is doing better too. In terms of he hogs, that sounds like a lot of bacon, ham and ribs on the hoof. You might try putting out some eggs. That may attract the bacon in them then Steve's rifle idea might work.

If you have an open mind, youíll generally find that youíll learn the most from the people who say the things you least want to hear.
