Hi Kobus

Right out of the blocks another nice woodworking piece so nice to hear from you again. Love your work.
The trip pics looked very interesting especially the shot with the mountains in the background.
Looks like you could use some rain though !!

Regards
Ross

Hi there all my MechMate friends, just to shout every now and then to say I am still alive and well.

My MechMate (# 6) is still going strong and since the first day never ever given me any problems.

I only wish we could have a 5 day weekend and work the rest....so much to do and so little time.

Well I had another one of those 1.8 meter x 900 mm tree trunk slices and some friend of a friend asked for a table in the same color, but with better looking legs, not as rough as the first one.
So I scratched in the pile of off-cuts and found something I could use.
Mortises were cut with old Big Blue and the table flattened with the machine.
This piece also had more cracks and in total 5 butterfly's were cut into it to keep it from falling apart.
Now to do 4 smaller tables to put next to chairs.

Again I had to import a 3kW spindle for a friend.
Again used Ebay
Again good price and FREE SHIPPING to South Africa and worldwide.

Previously had the same problem from Ebay seller.... SORRY SIR, South Africa is not part of the WORLD and please pay extra for shipping.

Again I made screenshots from Ebay to keep in my records.
Again seller say ... you not pay, we refund money PLUS $5.00 extra.

Again I say... keep your $5.00... you not speak proper English, you make mistake you PAY. I WANT spindle.

Reported matter to ebay.

Today message from seller:

spindle shipping.jpg

Again I am happy...
Again LOVEHAPPYSHOPPING not HAPPY

Nearly 8 years of PURE BLISS. And it never stopped working.
Still putting a smile on my face every time I make dust.
