Hear, hear. I'm having my little snort of scotch, raised in your general direction.

I just finished assemblying my grandson's Benelli Supernova, after replacing the hammer spring. I'll test fire it in the morning; hope it works.

This ...


Recently, I donated a complete vintage radio station to the local radio club.
They're going to use it as a fund raiser.

Image

I wasn't using it very often, and most of the stuff had been given to me in the first place. I thought it would make some club member very happy to have it and put some repeater maintenance money in the club coffers.

But mostly, I donated it to make room for this:

Image

Also 1960 vintage! I've always wanted a Britannica. A friend's mom passed away recently (she'd been a librarian at York University in Toronto for many years), he inherited it and neither had the room nor the desire to keep it. He very kindly gave it to me.

I spent the morning refinishing the bookcase.

Better, thanks. But still a couple misfires, due to a soft primer strike. Firing pin spring next perhaps?

Trying to get all the yellow warning lights on the Mini turned off or reset so it doesn't look like a Christmas float when I make a deal to trade it in tomorrow. I have everything pretty much fixed except the ambient temperature readout. The sensor is bad so it defaults to -40°f. New sensor is only $30 but it's behind the front bumper fascia. A real pain to replace. So I'm not.

Finished this up today. Probably my last project before we head back (though I have a little pot belly stove I really want to finish restoring before then)...

Finally doing what I know I should have done long ago and setting up a Password Vault. It involves a lot of figuring out what my current passwords are so I can change them to the new impossible to remember passwords. And just when I think I'm getting close, I suddenly remember several more sites that I haven't gotten to yet.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

I have mine in a notebook. I wouldn't be surprised if there are one hundred accounts and websites on my list. How many do you have?

I moved to a vault a couple of years ago. I'm over 340 profiles between work and personal.

A gentleman at the local Lee Valley gave me a box of stummels a couple years ago. I made an acrylic stem for a Savinelli this week. It's pretty rough but my first hand cut stem so good learning.

He also had a block the he had started on but had not done much except started with a band saw. unfortunately he removed too much from the side of the shank. But I decided would be good practice for shaping on my new belt sander.

Haven't really done anything with pipes in over a year. ImageImageImageImage

If you drilled and shaped that stem from rod stock you did a bang up job...especially for a first.
