  1. I like it. I'll be making one once I get this surgery behind me.
  2. Thanks guys. I was discharged today. Feels good to be at home but scary also. I have a lot of responsibility taking care of my new bladder. It was touch and go the whole time. The pain is excruciating at times. We'll get there.
  3. Thanks everyone. It went well. I was under from 7am till about 5pm. Doc said it was textbook and almost boring. Last night was terrible. Nausea and vomiting was bad but the pain from midnight till about 6am was worse. Oxycodone nor morphine would help. I gritted my teeth for 6 hours. They gave me to toradol at 6 and I started feeling movement in my bowels. I guess it was pressure. Not had any pain meds since and slept most of the morning. Keep praying. I have a long way to go.
  4. Thanks Joel. That thought is appreciated.
  5. Well, here we are. I'm going into surgery tomorrow morning to have my bladder removed. It's going to be a bad one. Recovery is between 4 and 6 months. I'll be at UAB in Birmingham. One of the best hospitals and one of the best surgeons in the country. Still going to be bad. So if it's not too much trouble, say another prayer for me. I'm going to need it. I'll be in touch when I can.
  6. Nice one. Kiridashi's can be some of the sharpest blades you have. And easy to sharpen. I love mine.
  7. I didn't realize there was a wool mill in Frankenmuth. You ever been there? Neatest little town you ever saw. Several breweries and some of the best German beer and food this side of Germany.
  8. Conner, at what point did the blade warp? When you quenched or while bringing it up to heat?
  9. Yes. Do a temper first. I snapped the first blade that warped. Lesson learned.
  10. @Conner Michaux I'm watching this one. A yakut is on my list and that one is looking good.
  11. Do a Google search for drilling brass. There's a good video on modifying your bit for drilling softer metals.
  12. I didn't plant much due to health issues and upcoming surgery. I picked 6 large heads of broccoli the weekend and 1 cuke. More cukes today. Hopefully in about 2 weeks I'll pull my cabbage. 12 heads 8-10 inches diameter. The plants are huge, 3 1/2 feet diameter and beautiful. That broccoli was delicious.
  13. My youngest daughter wants to learn. We're going tomorrow morning. She wants gold jewelry, coins and valuables. I'm looking for anything rusty.
  14. Time to go panning. Do you have a metal detector now? And have you found any old metal?
  15. What kinda sauce? Looks really good.
