    A certain box showed up today. I promptly squirreled the WE130 away to its  temporary home until my workshop its finished. Its amazingly well machined, finished, and assembled. I’m likely to simply disappear for a while as I (try to) apply the theory I’ve learned so far. I think MarcH calls it “getting experience”. 😎

    Have fun! In a couple of days you’ll be digging through drawers desperately looking for any remaining bladed objects that you can put a new edge onto.

    OK, Nick!  I give up.  What is the meaning of “Gone boi” and where does it come from?  Sounds like an Aussie idiom.

    I think Nick said he was in Hawaii.  Sounds like its a Hawaiian term?  Or maybe he said he was in Austrailia.

    Thanks for clearing that up.  I assume that “kriol” is the same as “Creole?”
