Still had a little time before I get the Kid up for school, so I hook up the 4 light setup for where I will be doing the work on the building board, I have the hangers that allowed me to raise or lower the light setup as needed. To much work done today. I will be taking a nap after my second coffee ride. Here is a pic of the light. I think I should have enough light.

Reveille at 07-15. SSS then Orange Juice,Muesli and a litre of coffee. Off to the first of my 3 mornings per week Rehab at the Hospital gymnasium. I joined the "zipper club" :D :D :D :D (triple bypass surgery) in October so I must get myself fit again. 7 more weeks to go and I am feeling a deal better but not rockin´ and rollin´ yet B).

 

Certainly is a life changing experience which I don´t recommend unless necessary and I guess smoking for 56 years didn´t help either :(

 

Regards to all,

Hey Wacko Joe, you are a genius!  All that computer stuff is like magic - - - to me anyhow  ;)

I'm still using a drafting table with T square and triangles.

 

Cheers,

That I still do if I have to and drawings are sometimes faster by hand.  But I also use TurboCAD 20 for complicated stuff.

Today Oi Hav mainly been shifting furniture.

Last week I decided I needed to reorganise it all.  But it didn't work.  Today I moved it all back to where it was.  Well, more or less.  I did let a few minor improvements stand though.

Wacko, whyn't send those drawings to Shapeways and have em make the whole ship for you. Or if ya want a nice kit you could cut the frames with a laser. Great work man. Your three hours of work produced all those drwings in different views. Wish Id learned that ten years ago.  Bill

I am going to cut the frames and everything else with the CNC MAchine, that was why I bought it. Wanted to do it with the machine, since the hands are shot to H_LL ( to many surgerys on them so far, 14 total). Some stuff will be done manualy but for the most part I will have the machine work for me. Now I am the BOSS and if I want to yell at the machine I can, always wanted to yell at the machine when it screws up not going to blame myself I am the BOSS remember LOL. Always like the learning, that's why I am going this way. As far as the different views, I can make the software move any way I want. One view I could show in a 100 different ways, that's what nice about 3D drawing, but there is a big learning curve.

Well today I talk to the Wife in China for a few minutes and then decided to take a chance and hook the Sipindel Speed Read out back up into the Mach 3 Software. Dam this is starting to scare me, the dam thing work. Think I will leave things alone for a few days. But here are a few pictures of the Sensor and one of the Spindle off and the others at different speeds. I think I am going to have Nightmares, things are working right. Need a vacation LOL. 47 more days and I will be with the wife in China for Chinese New Year.

Hello everyone,

 

Got up at 0700 hours, washed up, made coffee, talked to our Creator, had breakfast and read the newspaper.  Poured myself a cup of coffee and walked around the yard.  The Admiral was still "sleeping," she calls it dozing.  

Somehow I wound up in the garage aka the shipyard, hmmmm - - -  wonder how - - - and worked some on my sub model.  Made and had lunch, fired up the confuser, read the mail and the news.

Then got my extension ladder and climbed onto the roof of our house to clean the gutters from all the  &%$*@% pine needles from that vacant lot next to us.  Trimmed the Admiral's crape Myrtle and mozied back into the garage to do some more work on the sub model.

Before I knew it it was 1730 and my legs were tired so I went inside and poured myself a nice Belgian ale and back to the confuser to check what's new on some Apple apps I may "need."

 

Then logged on to MSW - - - oh yeah, had dinner (of sorts).  The Admiral ordered a pizza, she also worked hard in the yard, bless her little heart (that's a Southern expression  :)  :)

 

That's it folks, besides an update to by sub model.

 

Cheers,

Hello Anthony,

 

That was a very slow day for me ;)  Hmmmm, wait till I tell you what I really should be doing around the house and yard, rather then working on my models and drawing pictures.  You may then get a heart attack reading it. ;)   Older perhaps, I'm only pushing 80 but my doctor still shakes his head when he checks my vitals.  So maybe I'll have enough time to build all the models I planned and paint and draw all the pictures I have planned  :)  :)

 

You take care now and stay in good health.

 

Cheers,


Piet, The Flying Dutchman.

Same thing as every other M-F for the past, I lost count of how many weeks.

6am wake up

630 drive to work

715-345 work

345 drive home

430 load stove with wood to warm up house, prep for supper, make husband's lunch for next day, let dogs out, feed cats, throw in load of laundry, change into outdoor gear (longjohns, coveralls, insulated boots)

5pm husband arrives to pick me up and we leave to go work in the oilfields

930 arrive home from oilfields, finish cooking dinner, begin doing husband's paperwork, eat

11pm sit down and start grading papers

1am finally crash in bed!

Normal day?

0530 climb out of bed
0535-0630 coffee, read paper
0630 head to office
0631 arrive at office (of course, the commute can be a challenge if the kids are coming downstairs at the same time - I work from home)
0631-1500ish work
1500-1630 look for that perfect sunset photo I can take
1630-1700 Wrap the end of day emails
1700-?? Suppah, work around the house, read, work on boats is I get the chance

Tony, no energy drinks...those things are bad for you, don't do coffee either. Unfortunately, I drink soda all day long...bad for my teeth but the sugar and caffeine keep me going. However, after weeks and weeks of this with no end in sight.....almost looking forward to the day I finally just collapse in a heap from exhaustion....something’s  gotta give....soon!

Today I bought wood dowels and a soldering iron to start making deadeyes and chain plates.  Also bought some cherry strip stock to make fiddle and rams head blocks and some of the other odd shape blocks not generally available from suppliers.
