Nice job Charles and a nice classic boat. I remember seeing a mast being fabricated at Shepards Wharf about 20 years ago. I was amazed to see that it was fabricated from glued strip and was hollow. It was around 18" diameter at the step.

I didnít realise it was that bad Pete as they have it as a coating on several things. Perhaps itís the heating process and vapours that are bad. :doh:
Well done Norman, bypass Beryllium then. :headbang:

Have a look here:  https://www.ccohs.ca/oshanswers/diseases/beryllium.html 

I chose that one at random from from the Google response to the phrase 'Beryllium health risks?'  There were lots more.

The kitchen is on second floor, hallway, and bedroom across...sort of "duplex" i.e. two family house.

Slight OT?

It is not that funny :lol:

I'm collecting stuff and made some bits to start a belt sander project, but there are some open questions. I want to build a tilting/swinging one with a option of larger solid table, which stays put when the belt sander is swung. Just a challenge of making everything fit.

Am I the only one who finds this odd?
he had to move into other bedroom not to wake up on refrigerator snoring.

Dare I ask why he needed a refrigerator in his bedroom?

PK

and why,indeed, was he asleep on it??????

Definitely worth putting up a few cloves of garlic around the door. Deters even the most persistant mother in law (usually) AND 15 MILES that's preety close :bugeye: :bugeye: :bugeye:
You should take all necessary precautions immediately.  :whip:

Also well worth spying out the local area near the house for broom stick landing areas, then more cloves in the nearest trees.

Course the father in law will need support and might even help in the workshop, which should be encouraged as your " spending time with YOUR father dear, encouraging him to relax". Even better if he comes with you to buy essential supplies, you will not believe what you can get away with using that approach!!! :thumbup: :thumbup:

On a serious note hope all goes well.

Glad someone else enjoyed it. I thought it maybe a bit sparser than last year but still a good show. I especially like the loads of seating outside and in. Plus loads of space for the traction lads to give you a spin on !

Has John posted it on SNNC yet please?

By the way hope your wifes health is improving as well.

Regards Ian
