    Baby Cradel

    Well its been a while and I have been busy.
    First I had a small addition to the shop. The floor was poured on friday and I couldn't wait to see it on Sat. When I got there almost every piece of cast iron was rusted. The concrete man didn't close off the door between the addition and the main shop or open a window and I was in shock when I opened the door. 3 days and a lot of %^&%%^# sanding was on the agenda to clean it up. You can bet I called the contractor and had him out there.
    SOOOOOOOOOOOOO after I got over wanting to kill some one and did what had to be done I started to work on these
    I was real glad I had the Millbury to help with all of those tenons.
    I had running to do and things to set up as far as machines so it took a bit longer to get things done but I loved doing them.
    I didn't get much cam work done because the battries went ded but I did get some of the parts almost finished.
    Hope fully I will be able to be off this weekend and finish the cradel because I don't thing the mother will hold out much longer. Of course this is something that was a last minet Idea so I just hope I can get it done in time

    Better get a move on!!

    Wow, that is one *&^$@% load of M&T's. But I have to agree with you - what a great feeling to get them all done and dry-fit. A real sense of accomplishment.

    Looks like someone (two someones?) are going to be very proud of that cradle!
