  • I'm home

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks to all of you for the thoughts and prayers. I'm sure they helped in getting me through like I did.

    The surgery went well, but I did give the surgeon some something to sweat about. He said my stomach is so fatty that the lapband was on very tight, up to a point where he thought the opercule to the rest of the stomach would be closed, and I would have to stay in ICU for a week to be fed intraveinously.

    As you can see by this post, it's not quite the case, but the hole is small I'm very sure, I ate one sugar free fruit juice popsicle and felt nauseated.

    Diane, thanks for the call and updating everyone.

    Evie: it's surgery to get healthy.

    Miamw look at this link it's not a gastric bypass I had.

    Talk to you soon,
    DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

                                In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                                Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

                                of the extension is almost finished apart...

                                Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
