Re: I thought this was supposed to be fun.

Hi folks: Thanks for the encouragement. The troublesome part has passed (at least as far as I can see at this point). The cab roof project will be posted in a new thread as soon as I finish writing it up. And I apologize for the dead mouse photos. The forum does not need that. In my glee I didn't re...

He's not dead...he's just resting.....
:mrgreen: But he sure hit the ground with a thud when I deposited the corpse over the back fence. Hope the turkey vultures enjoy it.


BTW, I'm working on the story of the cab roof and will probably not get it posted until tomorrow.

Re: I thought this was supposed to be fun.

Say, folks, I'm going to start a new thread to show you what is happening with my wood cab since this thread has descended into a thread about shop mice, and doesn't have a relevant title anyway. So check there to see how the cab for old #26 1/2 is coming along. In the mean time..... SCOOORE! :twist...

Re: A Long Term Project

Many thanks to all. Greg - the lathe is a George Adams round bed, circa 1902. Details here if you're interested: http://lathes.co.uk/georgeadamsroundbed/ Best regards Steve Ooohh. Is that yours in the lead photo? That early iron is so awesome. I'm so jealous. There is something about the way things...

Re: I thought this was supposed to be fun.

Hickory, dickory, dock. Three mice ran up the clock. The clock struck one...and the other two escaped with minor injuries! Sorry Greg...couldn't resist. ... No soup for you. Go to the end of the line! :!: ... Work smarter...not harder! How does that work when you're a moron? :shock: And remember......

Re: I thought this was supposed to be fun.

Oohhhh... nasty :roll: :twisted: Russ: Thanks for the...

Re: I thought this was supposed to be fun.

Greg, That mouse must be Mighty Mouse. ... You got that. I got one by the front door last week, but this critter is coming in the back. So far he's licked all the peanut butter off all six traps all over the shop without springing the traps. Then he sprung two traps by the back door without getting...

I thought this was supposed to be fun.

Well, Mama said there’d be days like this. Yesterday I spent 5 hours out there and managed to glue two pieces of wood. Long ago I decided I wanted to make my cab from wood, and make it as close to the prototype as humanly possible. I like to do that. Or so I thought. But I’ve picked the hardest, mos...
