    I have the day off today, had cataract surgery on my right eye. Left eye was done in Apr. I've been ordered out of the shop for at least 5 weeks, Ya 5 weeks, When I had my first eye done I went to the shop too early and got sawdust in my eye, not a good thing.

    So eveybody post lost of posts so I at least have some reading to do.

      Good luck with the surgery. At least there is surgery available for that particular problem and I have heard it is very successful. .
      I have macular degeneration happening and for that there is no surgerey that can help. I have had several trips to an opthamologist ( 250km round trip) and now I am scheduled for a trip to the hospital on the 13th for more extensive tests.
      Got a new 19" LCD monitor so it's no problem computing with nice big print but reading magazines is becoming a difficulty.

        OH Marsha, drats. at least you can still come in here. can't believe the great work you have done so far with blurry eyes. Wow guess we better watch out now. when your all healed. follow the doctors advice or orders. LOL.
        like i do that. Its a bummer to get old huh.

        and you too Bill. get well for sure. scrollers sure need are eyes. so does every one, I know. I could lose my hearing or maybe my voice would be better, if I got to choos. No I need my hearing too. I love to hear the birds in the morning, and water flowing. that heals my spirit.
        my hubby wouldn't mind if i lost my voice. LOL

          At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

          The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....
