Default 70th birthday

I have not been in the shed for a while as the weather has been bad
and i dont have any current projects on the go.However today is nice and sunny
so i decided to do a little gardening and was drawn to tidying up the shed
For my recent 70th birthday my son in the UK sent me a hamper.Worldwide beers,nuts etc all hosed in a nice wooden tray.As i worked thru the beers
i wondered what i could use the tray for,it has a nice brass engraved plaque
on the front.I put it in the shed and today idally browsing/musing etc
i found the tray was a perfect fit in a recess between the mini lathe and mill
When i say a perfect 2mm smaller on the width,3mm high and perfect on the depth.All it needed was a lid and made an ideal collet drawer with bits of scrap
Fitted a tray and a couple of knurled brass thumbscrews from my stock
All in all a pleasaClick image for larger version

Happy belated birthday greetings--- young man.

Weather in the Newcastle -- upon Tyne variety is dis-buggerable and piss- instantly raining.

Little wonder that I have moved a lathe indoors where the central heating is chugging on. It's supposed to be summer.

Best Wishes

I'm waiting for my shed to be erected-- or is it an ark?

However, the Sieg has got a new 4 jaw independent chuck, a faceplate, a ER25 collet holder and the start( eventually) of a fitment to take Myford stuff as well.

Again, I've got the saddle DRO repaired and working.

Obviously the tee bolts and whatever for the subtable are 'on hold' until the shed is erected and re-furbished.

On another front, there is 'balls up' with the tax people and I have still to finalise my wife's estate despite it being almost 2 years now.

I'm not miserable or whatever, merely trying to see an end to a few things

Lots to come

Patience fleas, the night is long

from Cervantes in Don Quixote by Sancho Panza
