  • lost week

    We watched Elliott last Friday as he couldn't go to school because he had a "bug." His 24 hour bug lasted 18 hours, I got it Sunday night and I am at 5 days and counting.Mon-Wed were total lost days. Not really sick just zero energy and no appetite. Thursday was my marathon eye doctor appt. which was quite well. He said my eye health was excellent! Go figure.No change in cataracts surgery is my choice, contacts will correct my astigmatism as medicare won't pay for the implants that correct that, just regular implants. I've decided to wait another year and see what happens in January. Didn't get to use my new power carving tool or anything. Bruce got whatever this is on Wednesday. He has no appetite either so I don't have to cook!! Well, I hear my recliner and quilt calling me again. Stay healthy!!

        Ready for this Rolf? It’s a chainsaw wheel for my grinder. Remember that bowl I started last year? I decided I needed something to clean it out faster. We got it from lee valley at the wood show along with a full face shield. But now the weather turned cold again and I do that outside. Right now the only calling me is another cup of hot tea.

          Just be careful with that chainsaw disc! I know a bunch of folks who've gotten torn up with one of them. If you study chainsaw safety, the most dangerous point for kickback is where the chain dips over the rounded nose; a disc is really one rounded nose, so kickback is a real concern. Take light cuts and don't bury the edges in the wood.

          Personally, I prefer the Arbortech disc, or the carbide point discs (Kutzall or SaburrTooth).

            Thanks Bob. Bruce was really hesitant about me getting that. I have the coarse Holey Galahad disc. Before I use the chain saw blade, I need to, or Bruce needs to, figure out a clamping system so I can secure the wood firmly before I do any cutting. If nothing else, I’ll send it back and get more discs. True story - when I was seeing the hand specialist after I cut it on the table saw he told me a story. He was getting ready to use a chainsaw for the first time and was going to see if it was sharp by touching it while it was running. He realized what he almost did, turned the saw off and never picked one up again.
