  1. That's going to be nice Geoff. No shop time for me either. I been sitting on the porch. It's been 13 weeks since my surgery and I still can't hold out to do anything.
  2. My wife wouldn't let that hat in the house. She's ready to sell this house now.
  3. Caught him climbing my chimney.
  4. I'm bumping this one back up as I'm curious also. I'm using wood that's not stabilized and am having other issues. Some wood cut a year ago I'm not having problems with and some cut 10 years ago I am. Why would red cedar cut 10 years ago turn a blade brown? Also, when left in the heat will get a sticky residue on the metal.
  5. I like it. I'll be making one once I get this surgery behind me.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Thanks Joel. That thought is appreciated.
  9. 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.
  10. Nice one. Kiridashi's can be some of the sharpest blades you have. And easy to sharpen. I love mine.
  11. 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.
  12. Conner, at what point did the blade warp? When you quenched or while bringing it up to heat?
  13. Yes. Do a temper first. I snapped the first blade that warped. Lesson learned.
  14. @Conner Michaux I'm watching this one. A yakut is on my list and that one is looking good.
  15. Do a Google search for drilling brass. There's a good video on modifying your bit for drilling softer metals.
