    If only trouble was limited to kitchen supplies.

    Yvan queried the machine I use for sharpening all my blades.I posted this thread a while back, which will give some idea of my description of a bench grinder on wheels.

    Regards
    Paul

    PS: A good meeting, but I forgot to ask Lance what timber he made his pine trees from.

    PPS: Enlarge the pix in the other thread to get a half way reasonable view and it seems I have a mental block with the size of the motor in that it looks to be 1KW despite two previous incorrect assessments!!

    Paul, it was of course pine [emoji846].

    By the way, I found a second hand copy of the biodynamics book you recommended, which my wife will find under the Christmas tree on the 25th.

    Thanks for the pics Paul. They bring fond memories!!!

    I spent some time in Germany to learn the language and was employed for a while as a gofer in a commercial joinery.
    The business was large enough to import timber from behind the Iron Curtain, mainly Poland and the Baltic States, straight from their mills.

    Having no idea what a joinery was at first, I was fascinated by watching a length of rough sawn piece of timber being devoured by a long, whining machine and come out all smooth, shaped and ready to be assembled into big window frames, doors etc. !!

    The joinery had a dedicated sharpening workshop where I would sometimes have to bring a blade or a spindle molding bit to be sharpen.
    I recall the blade sharpening machine: a 4-5 foot wide, chest-height contraption with horizontal rails, with stops holding blades being lubricated and sharpened by a travelling grinder...with German precision of course! Your machine would be a mini version of what was in that workshop!

    I wish I had paid more attention to all the activity but, at 19, I was more inclined to watch the clock for knock-off time

    Cheers Yvan

    We are going away for the weekend so at 12:00pm tomorrow if all is going to schedule I will be on the Hume Highway somewhere North of Benalla.

    Have a great meeting. Maybe see you all the following Friday.

    Interesting meeting where we did not get to discuss the topic of the day until the last ten minutes.

    So just a little pictorial (click on them to see properly) backup to support my ramblings. The fish pond, which is now in it's second summer and at last we have established some plants bordering the water. Quite a few plants in the water too:

    P1060739 (Medium).JPG

    It is nearly six metres long and 1.5m wide at the bridge, which is the narrowest section up to 1.9m at the widest. The bridge was inspired by Monet's wonderful bridge over his lake, but that is where the resemblance ends. Also I can't paint or draw to save myself, but I can do the occasional impression.

    P1060742 (Medium).JPG

    There are fish in there. We started with ten or so. Now around two hundred. The little blighters are performing unspeakable acts in full view!

    P1060741 (Medium).JPG

    Remember we spoke of slab subsidence. This was my experience.

    P1060743 (Medium).JPG There is a considerable degree of list, but it is not cactus yet:


    P1060744 (Medium).JPG

    The cactus is interesting. It flowers prolifically, but they only open at night and are spent by the morning. It has just finished another flower spurt, but looks like this when in bloom (This is a Friday lunchtime exclusive as it normally goes to the gardening section) :

    P1040562 (Small).JPGP1040567 (Small).JPG


    I had a little think on Lance's birdbath problem. I understand the birdbath is supported by a nude man. I think we have to go back to Michelangelo's "David" for the answer. He made David's feet large and out of proportion to spread the load so he did not sink without trace. My birdbath sits on a piece of cut up concrete path. Not too much is wasted around here, much to the consternation of SWMBO.

    P1060746 (Medium).JPG Some fish in there too for mossie control P1060747 (Medium).JPG

    This is the tank shed to provide gravity fed water to the house and for the garden together with a little bit of interior design: Some big metal pipes and chunky timbers

    P1060748 (Medium).JPGP1060752 (Medium).JPGP1060749 (Medium).JPG

    Some of the other tanks. The last two were sunk into the ground as the pipework has to travel sixty meters plus underground from the house and the head differential in the first tank, placed above ground, would not allow the water to get to the tanks during heavy falls (only something I remember from the distant past) quickly enough to prevent the gutters overflowing. I think I have finally got it sorted.

    P1060753 (Medium).JPG

    There was a lot of digging involved with the fishpond and and a lot of backfilling with the tanks (about ten tons of sand), but done now. We are in the process of disguising the tanks with some vegetation in the form of a hedge.

    Hi All,

    I only just realised that tomorrow is Friday, so sorry for the late posting.

    The topic this week will be "My favourite project from 2020". Either show your project if you have it and it's small enough, or photos will do too.

    This will also be my final prattle until February next year as I won't be around. Having said that though, the meeting details won't change so others are more than welcome to keep using this recurring meeting's details.

    I will probably be there but no guarantees.

    Don't wait for me.

    Can't make this one as I will be back at the "bakery." Pity that as I did have some things that were small enough to bring into the house.

    I can't remember how many meetings ago I mentioned I had purchased the wrong replacement pad for my 125mm orbital sander. I placed the old pad over the new one and drilled holes. The new holes go through the plastic section and not the metal centre plate but I inserted a washer so the screws are bearing on metal.

    I don't remember which of you suggested something along these lines but thank you.

    So far so good.



    Have a good meeting tomorrow and all the best for the festive season to all of you who have participated. The hook ups have been most enjoyable. Thanks Lance for dreaming up the meet.

    Regards
    Paul
