    Here's a look at my Snader76 swap box. I got some NICE, BIG, THICK, aluminum plates and a large scrap of micarta that I think was left from his great Mini PFS. I'm thinking I now have what I need for my first board cut, a version of BV's Mamangava.

    I did get something in the move that is way kewl. I arranged for Momma to stay at a friends house Saturday night so that Toni and I could pack up the rest of her place in peace. (Momma is 81 and, being a Depression kid, obsesses over everything). When I picked her up Sunday, Edith, in who's home she stayed, invited us in for a bit. Edith is from Hungary, and is, like Momma, a widow. She showed us her basement, and the tool pegboard from her late husband was still down there. A leather punch was in it's place- a 1950's vintage punch but in perfect condition. She saw me eying it and then took it down and would not let me leave without it. So I now have a leather punch to make my pouches with! Huzzah! And thanks again, Edith.

    I stopped by my local habitat for humanity restore today and picked up 2 pieces of multiplex each about 22 inches by 20 inches for 2 dollars. Some good quality stuff even with a couple corners roughed up pretty good. :D

    Yeah I do a lot of my shopping at the restore. Haven't found multiplex lately but for my PVC stuff... U get the idea lol. Now on topic lol only thing I've managed to get lately is a migraine lol, however tomorrow I get a new hand saw as my other one broke on me and is actually cheaper just to buy new saw than blades for it lol

    You know what? Its the second machine I've got from him! He gave me a Ryobi Scroll saw a few months ago. I already have a 370 watt disc and belt sander. I'm going to leave the 80 Grit on that one and set this one up with fine grit so I can go from one to the other to cut my sanding time down.

    The machines are sort of on permanent loan, but he is a master cabinet maker and just works so much bigger than me that I doubt he will want them back.

    They always act mad, but she'd be a lot more mad if you had let her go out of the house like that. :)

    My wife always asks me what I think of a meal she cooked. She's been mad at me many times for answering honestly, but she has also become a fantastic cook over the years.
