  1. Kudos on the bench.
    The threaded adjustment for the planing stop is clever.

  2. FYI - the SMC interface doesn't notify me of messages in this chain. I've migrated to the World's largest portable phone, running Android.

    If my response is delayed, it's only because my memory isn't prompting me... we're dealing with frequent basement flooding and that clears the deck of other concerns.

  3. All good, thanks! My wife thinks I'm better looking, I think I'm thinner and my boys think I'm smarter.

    The chicken seasoning was a hit.

    Things got real quiet at dinner, that night.

    Best regards,
    Jim
  4. Thanks, Malcolm.

    I hope Terry's plane serves, it's a wonder.

  5. I can try to send some patties but they may not let me ship fresh prepared foods. I'll find a way.
  6. I'm fine with treats fron the islands. My wife asked about local Jamaican patties, if you can ship some.

    I'm reducing everything I own, 10% each year.
    Tools, I've got in excess.

    Best regards,
    Jim
  7. Hello Jim,

    I just got the plane, and wow- this is really nice. I have a care package for you, but am still trying to get a few additional items- so far I have a lot of spices from Grenada (the "Spice Isle"), and some from Trinidad. Also some Bay Rum (NOT For drinking- for aftershave), some local hot sauce, and a rum cake (the rum bakes off so it won't make you drunk- don't worry.) Trying to get some locally made coconut oil, and also sending some mahogany. I know you are trying to limit your tool collection, but do you have any use for a Stanley #79 side rabbet plane? Since I got the LN 98 and 99 set, I no longer use the Stanley. This HNT Gordon Plane is really nice, and I can't have a good conscious just trading you some spices and hot sauces!
  8. Good day Jim,

    I have not seen it yet, but did not check the mail yesterday. I need your address- I have been putting together a package for you.
  9. Has your package arrived?

    Snowed in Jim
  10. I don't have need for more tools, I'm on a ten-year plan to reduce what I own, 10% each year.

    I'll need your address, and leave the trade bait to your discretion.

    Jim
