Cabin Fever [Jan. 24th, 2006|04:44 pm]
Doug Ayen
Picked up some good loot at Cabin Fever up in York, PA (http://www.cabinfeverexpo.com): some carbide tooling, some bits-and-pieces (acid brushes, new jeweler's loupe, odds and ends) and the piece d'resistance, a rotary table for the milling machine.

The rotary table should come in very handy for some of the stuff I want to do, including the next generation of pizza cutters. I thought I had an appropriate collet for the center hole, but it turns out what I have is the wrong taper. I'm thinking this table should take a MT#2, but will have to measure and find the specs to confirm.

This upcoming weekend, Celtic_Anya and I are taking an introductory glass blowing course. I don't really need another hobby, but I figure a bit of broadening experience is always a good thing.

Still having some arm problems, though it does seem to be getting better on average. Will try using the workshop again on Friday, got a couple of projects I'd really like to get moving on again.

Next project work day

Doug! Now that I know where you live, let me know when you have your next open project day. I'll come out and show you the swords I started in my garage with no tools to speak of!

I'm not sure how you handle your project days, but I would love to try some Blacksmithing sometime. One of my stone carving books has instructions for making chisels, and I'd like to give it a try. Maybe at the same time I could try to distinguish limestone from basalt again. :-)
