I thought this might get your attention. :) A coworker has a few (one nice electric one) and he leant me a book on the subject. If these turn out ok we will have learned a lot and I’ll probably do some with my students.

Right now I’m stuck while I look for something to use for string bushings at the tail end.

Hm, it’s hard to see in that pic, but I’m not seeing how he’s attached the strings at the tail. My boys have the tail piece a few inches out of the body to drill holes to pass the strings through. I need to put a grommet or bushing of some kind in that hole to keep the strings from cutting into the wood. I’m happy enough to be creative, just haven’t come up with a good idea yet...
I think it's a hinge.

I lost the photo sharing site access otherwise I'd take a close up picture of my own. Also.. cbgitty.com has parts galore to consider (a lot of it is low price.... or it may generate an idea)
It is a hinge... two screws on the end of the cigar box and the hinge has 2 on the other side for the strings and the fellow may have drilled a third in the middle (3-string cbg).

Did a photo shoot yesterday of my next door neighbor's leather crafting shop. A periodical found him on InstaGram and contacted him asking if he's like to be featured in an upcoming Veteran's Day Special Edition. I have the best images burned to a CDR for him to send to the publisher. Here is some of his work, belt and holsters for children.....

Why not just e-mail them, or some sort of file share? Nice pic, btw.

Airplanes as a whole. $$$$$. Luckily these were only $7 each and the Lycoming 235 is only a four cylinder.

I looked up the motor on this plane. Looks like a big version of a VW four banger boxer engine. Wonder if that would fit in a '66 Bug?

The house we’re renting was vacant for 6 years. We spent the weekend cleaning up the yard. It’s a half acre and will take some time.

The water supply in the bathroom vanity started leaking. Getting enough clearance to change the valves requires removing the vanity drawer from hell (seriously :twisted: .)
I finally got the drawer out and have to turn off the water to the house, drain the lines, go to ACE to get the parts and reassemble.
But I'll have to wait.

There is no comfortable way to lay under a sink. The freaking handle came off of our bathroom sink faucet in my wife's hand yesterday morning. The darn screw walked out. So I spent an hour under that sink. Hit my head on the drain every time I went back under.

Got her split today, a bit tedious, but easy enough. Now I wait for the parts. The former owner put the wrong seal in last time. Equal OD and ID does not a proper press fit make. I hate redoing someone's bad workmanship.Image

Kitchen sink still has the tiniest leak on the hot water side. The flare nut cracked so now I get to try my hand at cutting and flaring tubing tonight.

Fixing all the things. I crudely fixed the crude bench for my daughter's vanity. The little oscillating fan we have for our big van had a switch crap out. Solution? Remove said crappy switch and butt splice wires together. Done.

The Cub is back in one piece. Mowed the lower sections of grass earlier. After that I trimmed the low hanging pines out back to make push mowing that section of yard less miserable then I got distracted by my pool pump needing some maintenance. After that was sucking water again, I got brave and figured out I could sneak the Cub around the front porch without rolling it down the hill. Even with a wide turn for the trailer I had plenty of extra room. Now to do a 100 point turn to get her back out and up to the burn pile.ImageImage
