Not quite a Dozen

Good progress is being made on the saw till. Finished fitting it out for the saws yesterday-managed to get 11 saws in there comfortably. And still be able to lift it ;)
Also been playing with my new Airpress. Very interesting-I am amazed by the amount of pressure the bag is put under! It also makes some scary cracking noises as it comforms to the workpiece. I'll let you know how I get on.

Hmmph, and you're worried about me... Have you left room for the Wenzloff & Son? :~)

Hah! Thanks for your concern-too late, I'm afraid ;)
Yeah, there's room for a Mike Special. Just don't tell the Spear and Jackson that it's keeping the place warm for it......
P.s. Come on Mike, lets have a peek-the waiting is killing me!

Perhaps tomorrow--mine that is. I ran into a snafu with the machine I made for the tapering and needed to order some new bearings.

Seems some idiot didn't use truly sealed bearings. Metal shavings. Stone grit. Bad Mike.

But I can slip it all together and snap a picture. Maybe...unless I just want to have a play [g].

Take care, Mike
