Hi guys and gals, some weeks, the sh*t quite literally hits the fan, and suddenly it is friday afternoon, and you wonder where it all went, and all you want is to go home and forget it ever happened, I call this video, "stress poop and a diatribe" you will learn why when you watch it! Normal service will be resumed next week! I was back in the shop today, and got at least the morning to work on my own stuff! Thanks all for watching, commenting and subscribing!

Nup - 63 last time i checked ! If it keeps growing at that rate he will have 100 by the end of the week and 1000 by the end of the month 🤩.

Phil i have 4 days out of every 7 that go like that !
It’s bad enough when you have to unblock your own sewer pipes - at least you know what is in there is your own doing ! Not a hope in hell of getting me to do anything like that even for a relative !

Yes YES ALRIGHT!! you can consider my bad English corrected! Actually it is a modern stereo ghetto blaster, which shows a few scars, having been present during my entire workshop rebuild, and got knocked down, collapsed onto, and covered in render etc, but amazingly, it still works quite well, I was , as well you all know, referring to my dancing!

Had a fun day today, lit the forge for the first time, filled the workshop with smoke, set the CO alarm off, and suddenly the flue warmed, and off it went! First thing I learned was that I need some more coke, but finding a reliable dealer is always hard..............................Second thing is that the stuff I have needs riddling to get the slack out of it, cough cough! Had a job to do on a set of victorian fire irons, and when I tried to saw the handle end off the poker, the rapidor just skidded across the metal, so I needed the forge to anneal it, it was through hard, but much better after a trip to red heat and a slow cool. I can see that the future holds some needed mods to my flue extraction system, MORE POWER EGOR!!

Phil.
