Sure do this to the foreigners. I googled it.
Dang, just missed it!
LOL, picking on them ferriners , Herb, ya outta be ashamed of yer self. You should be a good host, and give Helmut your best gunny sack, and turn him loose in yer favorite snipe-huntin woods, to make amends! A nice spirited snipe hunt would be just the thing to bring out the inner jaeger in Helmut!
Thanks, everyone for the great new shop suggestions! I was able, with my neighbors help, to pull the thing up and off the tractor just enough to extricate ole Johnny Popper out from under the mess, and without killing any of us in the bargain. He has a nasty dent on the top cowl, and his smokestack now sits a somewhat jaunty angle, but no other damage I can see. I'll probably start him up tomorrow to position him outta the way while I demolish shed debris. We tied ropes around the temporary support beams, so when men and machines were safely out, we pulled out the props, and down she came.
Ratty, I'm sure Mrs. S couldn't have helped but love her shed, after all, it had a 1989 Safari Van with the privacy window tint option, (now unfortunately missing in one side position) AND as a special bonus, the 1953 Model B John Deere, in tasteful green and yellow, barely broken in! What girl wouldn't be thrilled with that?
Rick, have you been hanging out on Farmers Only.com?
Sorry Helmut , don't put too much weight on the henway
You are of course right Rick , gotta love that southern hospitality ! I have a slightly used burlap bag that should be perfect , and the willow switches have had the bark whittled off and are seasoned perfectly , so snipe hunting it is , snipe season just opened too . Nothing like a nice moon lit snipe hunt followed up by a few JeagerMeister's . Its been nearly 50 years since one of my Dad's buddies took me on my first snipe hunt (minus the JaegerMeister's) and the memory still makes me ,, ahhhhh ,,, ummm ,,, er , smile .
...fine appliances, too.
Are making Blutwurst??? Ewwww
Now for a mandolin that is not supposed to look like a mandolin, only a guitar style TOM bridge will do justice. Still plenty of work left - have to bring this down to final height and get some radius on both ends. This prototype is Bolivian Rosewood. This is so hard it I might even get away without making one out if brass. The saddles came out of a donor 12 string bridge.
Need shorter screws. 10.67mm string spacing - saddle center to saddle center with a 12' radius - well not sure if this can be called a radius with just the 4 saddles of which the 2 on the outside are lowered.
That bridge is outstanding!
Looking really good Helmut!!
Totally kicking ash Helmut! Nice work man.
You have four discreet data points there Helmut. That is sufficient to calculate a curve from..... carry on.
It is not ash - it is Bolivian rosewood
Thanks folks. It takes longer to draw a plan without errors than milling it. I need to look into a CAD program - drawing from hand and using a pocket calculator is painful.
That's exactly what I was thinking.
That's actually quite clever.
The bridge is still missing a henway however.
Working on it Rob!!!
It's OK, he can use some snipe-grease instead.
