The doctor dug into my shoulder a couple weeks ago... had to go back today so he could freeze all the surrounding area. Yuck! Talk about intimations of mortality! He says defrosted bits of frozen flesh will fall off for a while, like a really bad frostbite, then it'll be an oozing open wound, then... well, you get the picture. Bleck!
So, to console myself, I just ordered the monster lathe tool 4 piece set. I figure that'll be better than trying to make my own... and If I get *really* ambitious, I can always make new tips for it, like, say, a hook, etc. I know some of you guys have them... have you ever tried to make accessories?
