Yes fans, even after a love's one passed away, the Honey do list is still in effect :-)
One of these resulted in a bureaucratic catch 22.
We had everything listed as co-owner, so I had to changed the car's title.
But as soon as I declared her dead, I now have to change the plate on my car, if I want to drive away from here..... So I figure if I must changed plates may as well get veteran plates, but hold on sport fans, that require being vetted by the Royal Canadian Legion (of which I am a member) but that won't happen right now, so I got regular plates on, to be replaced by my vet plates once authorized, and getting a refund for the unused portion of the old plate I shared with Heather ..... Allright, what I thought would be a short visit at my local Provincial government office took a bit more time than I thought... Then a few more hours at the local Federal government office
After checking on Rudy, who was spending time with his doggy friends at a friend's place, it was time to start my shift at the wood shop. A quick stop home to gather my dimensions, off I went to the base woodshop. In no time I had the pieces machined to make my till frame.
The four side pieces machined and the remainder of the board I bought.
That of course would be dovetailed by hand.
NO I did not took Rudy in the shop, way too noisy and dangerous for him.
Back home, with Rudy, I tried two pieces on the wall for sizing, it fit, just, above the pegboard in place, but I am pretty sure that area under the window is going to be modified shortly... :-)
This is how a 32 in piece fit.
And that is as big as I wanna get.
I may still shave off an inch or two,,,
More stuff picked away at my list, mostly stuff I could not do at the local Federal government office, they apparently don't talk to the tax dept and passport office etc ???
These you do on line or via old fashion phone with muzak on hold for eons............your call is important to us, please stay on the line in order not to loose your priority in the cue... Zzzzzzzzzz
After tweaking my pieces to my final, final, final dimensions. Who me keep changing my mind !??
It was quick work dovetailing a 6 in wide box.
Then come the fun part...
Finalize my holders. That of course would imply that I settled down which ones are going where.
Hummm, still don't want to customized the holders too much to specific tools, but regardless these holders are to be simply screw in from the back, so I can further customize down the road :-)
Had the car in for tire changes, 2 new ones, somehow they got the wrong sizes in ?? They will called me back tomorrow when the right size comes in...
Then Monday back to the dealership to have my suspension rebuilt. That darn pot hole from hell I hit in Boston last year sure took its toll on the car, so far I replaced two tires, both front spring, now replacing the last two tires and the shock absorbers. They say they still OK, but they are getting long in the tooth, so may as well replace them and see if there is anymore damages, four wheels alignments and check my AC, it doesn't seems to be very cold anymore, recharge?
All that to get the car ship shape for travelling this summer, with Rudy
There goes a big hole in my tool budget :-(
Bob, making small progress on many fronts
