I guess being a Pa Paw gives me experience, but lately I have had some problems, about 3 months ago I started loosing control of my hands and my arms legs and back hae been getting weaker. Dropped 25 pounds w/o trying.
I can grip somewhat with my fingers but not thumbs and can't easily open a closed fist so that is why I am calling them Paws... I have had cameras probed in every opening in my body (some not pleasent), CAT scaned, MRIs, 16 blood tests, urine analysis, Xrayed top to bottom, stuck with needles and shocked, a whole alphabet of tests w/o any terrible results or any answers, next week a neuroligist will stat testing anew... I already have learned what I don't have...
I desided this was not going to keep me from my pleasures so (although slow) I am still active. I have always been a Jigs & Fixtures sort of guy so most of my activities are putting together jigs to do what my hands used to do. I'm on hold now waiting till my son comes over and can change the TS blade for me (I tried today but don't have enough strength to loosen the old,
or tighten the new)
Today I turned 48 ft. of 3/4" Hard Maple into 3/8" (0.385") for Model T windows... When I get the blade changed, I can setup for joints.
Oh,well... I'm tired now anyway. (which happens often)
