    Cool Pics of the plunder

    OK, here are the pics of what I picked up in Philly:

    From left to right: Caliper set, cost me less than one tool at LV; Cup drive centre; cone cup centre for 60º live centre; Chuck set including spigot jaws and various other gimcracks; ½" bowl gouge; 14" chainsaw, unassembled; 60º live centre; wide jaws for chuck; one of two #4 planes I had purchased earlier in the year and had shipped to my brother; and an adapter to fit the chuck onto my Grizzly lathe.

    I couldn't leave out this gorgeous picture I took of my brother's lilies in the front of his house.

    I assembled the chain saw and sawed some pieces of some lumber that I want to try turning. Man, that thing is FUN! I was a chain saw operator for the St. Lawrence Seaway one winter (1972-3). It was a bigger chainsaw then, but I'd forgotten the fun.

    Nice haul, Roger. It looks like your trip was a total success, but I'll bet you're glad to be home.

    Oh, don't you know it! It felt good just to cross the border with all the loot. And to sleep in my own bed. And my son, DIL, and grandson arrived last night! They are nere from Alberta for three weeks.
