Default No project today because of Bj

I've spent precious time today cleaning my wood lathe, I've swept, I've sucked, I've blown and I've rubbed all because Bj noticed in a recent photo that happened to show the lathe in the background with a few wood shavings on it.
Without the two Bobs, Bob Noles (senior moderator) and Bob Jurgens (Bj) I would probably be up to my waist in sawdust, it is they who drop the occasional gentle hint!

Man Harry it looks new, does this mean you'll have to start all over learning to use it? Maybe this time it won't take long to get the knack of things!

That's much better Harry, but I would have been happy to loan you my maid that everyone accuses me of having in my shop.

BJ, I tried to find someone to take a $A1000.00 bet with me that by this evening you would have reproduced that shot, I set the bait and you took it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Whilst gazing at my now new looking lathe, I was able to see a simple solution to a problem that I had with the set-up whilst bowl turning, the problem and solution tomorrow.

Harry, I believe you may have just broken the "unwritten" woodworkers code. That is waaay too clean.
