Hi I have been watching and learning from your posts for a few weeks now and feel it is time to jump in with those that I already feel as good friends. In December I purchased my dream a woodmizer lt10 and have cut 8 logs so far for some practice. The infection is spreading and I refuse to take the suggested dose of antibiotic.Absolutly love the illness
Thanks guys for the warm welcome. I am a nurse with a killer 12 hour schedual so don't have much time right now to even get any logs out of the woods of my friend, but by April I will be retired and then will have more time even if not more money. Weather is 10 degrees F right now so I'm not too interested in sawing right now anyway. I am refacing the neighbors kitchen while they are in Fla.so will spend the extra time in wood shop instead. Am thinking the process (jig) to resaw some 4/4 oak for beaded panaling on the mill. I has to cause less smoke than resawing on the tablesaw
. . . I am a nurse with a killer 12 hour schedual so don't have much time . . .
My RN wife wants to go back to work just to keep proficient, and although I'm not one to ride roughshod over my woman I did say no to any jobs that require 12's. We're 51 and none of that 12 hour on your feet stuff is good for us unless it's at the mill.
So she'e resigned to either finding a M.D. or D.O. 9 to 5 to work for or she can look forward to more shop time. I just don't have a wife when she works 12's because she's recuperating on her time off.
I know what you mean about the 12s I worked for 16 years of 8s and it wasn't too bad but our hosp was bought out by a giant and this last year hasn't been fun, so since my 1st love is wood and sawdust and nursing is killing me (not physical enough to stay in shape and mental stress too great) I decided it was time to do somthing before I was too old to do it. besides I can't do an honest days work anymore
