He likes everything still. Lol. Hasn't shown any particular interest past hot wheels, which he now has almost 100...

Wanted to add a set of driving lights to the bike.
Started out as 4x4x1/2 aluminum angle. Not sure why the finish in the  first picture is so shinny, used matt black powder coat.
What a job finding a place to splice into the hi beam circuit to feed the relay on these.

Got my firewood for 2020 delivered yesterday. Kit form, some disassembly required.

From what I remember Greg, you have a beast of a firewood processing machine you made. I don't think the wood has a chance. ;-)

The processor certainly easies the pain of dealing with a load. The one load I cut last summer had some really big oak logs in it, my tractor wouldn't lift them, thankfully we had an excavator there.

Not machining related, but it kept me busy for a little while. That's all I'll say for now.   8)

 It's a little early in the game to see something like that but it sure says a lot.

The picture I want to see is one of that boy, with a giant smile on his face, looking at the posted picture.
Otherwise, not so much.

If  you notice, it appears the papers and head are on the floor, so it adds to the realism and makes you wonder. The problem is the blood trail is not so good. A better ponding of blood would have worked for me.


Nice job though.

Well, the reality is that I cannot claim this photo as my own since I was not even born yet when it was taken. My parents were still 18 months from their wedding and I would not come along until 11 months after that.


No, my part in this is one of preservation. The photo was taken as a 35mm slide in January of 1957 by my dad. The young boy is his youngest brother, my uncle Ed, who is only nine years my senior. He went on to serve in Vietnam and is currently enjoying retirement and spending lots of time with his grandchildren. The photo should give him a story that he can tell them.


This is a thread about what I did, and no, it wasn't machine shop related, but it is a rather daunting activity. My dad was an avid photographer and took about 8000 sllde photos between 1957 and 1990. After that he switched to print film and took Lord knows how many photos since then. I am currently working on scanning first the slides and then the prints so that the entire collection will be in digital format. Scanning goes fast, I did the first 1200 slides in about six hours. The time consuming part is cataloging them and "fixing" the ones that have deteriorated over the years. It is is amazing what you can do with modern photo editing software.


The photo in question was done by moving my grandmother's dining room table over against the wall, then opening it in the middle as though to add another leaf. My uncle then sat on a stool under the table with his head sticking up through the opening while some linoleum flooring scraps and newspaper were strategically placed around his head. A piece of scrap baseboard was placed against the wall and a chair was placed on the table off to one side. Finally, good old tomato ketchup was used for effect, Ed closed his eyes, and the shutter was released.


So, I saved this and many other photos for the enjoyment of family members. I wasn't making chips, but I think it was time that was very well spent.

Thanks for the story Terry.
I will rest easier after reading it (Whew!) and congrats on creating the family digital photo legacy. Priceless.

For that picture was taken in it day and time, it probably look very real to many back then.  I bet today, you could clean it up and really make it look real! :o

I should have realized it was an old photo. I don't even remember the last time I saw anything listed in the newspaper for 19₵.
