So, I made a dado (table saw) and needed to clean up the bottom.
Seems like an ideal job for the router plane. Except the dado is ¼” and I only have the ½” blade. Soooo, a chunk of scrap 3/8″ stainless rod (¼” is too small to be clamped in the plane), cut a vee on one side and a slot, then a bit of ¼” O-1 plate welded on the end, grind, heat red hot, dunk in veggie oil (smells dandy, motor oil is incredibly rank), temper in the oven and spend way too much time on the diamonds (gotta learn to draw the temper a bit more) and next morning, voilà, ten minutes to a nice dado.
- Well shit - one of my newly canned tomatoes fermented and blew the lid off (with a bang). I was hoping for hard tomatoe cider or Bloody Mary but alas, just fizzy tomatoe small beer.Tire burn. The front tire slapped both knees I don't know how many times but kept it sorta pointed straight while I body surfed the stem. Very very scary.Yep, that tomato plant is pushing 6'. Must be the water.
