Brazing Planes and an Aircraft Carrier

Hello folks I had a few promises to fulfill and thought I would film it.
Bandit over at Lumberjocks asked me to try to repair a plane for him. I told him I would be happy to. I know I have shown the brazing before but this might help someone else with a little more information.
Gene had give me a Stanley #8. I also told him I would show its restoration. So here we are.
Now before the movie I want you to see I have almost run out of space for my planes. I have them shoved in the rafters and under the bench.

Andersonville GA and a few tools

Hello friends the wife and I took a small vacation and I picked Georgia. I have always wanted to see Andersonville Civil War Prison. The national POW memorial and museum is there to.

This is one of the few pictures that were taken during the prison under operation.

Andersonville, or Camp Sumter as it was known officially, held more prisoners at any given time than any of the other Confederate military prisons. It was built in early 1864 after Confederate officials decided to move the large number of Federal prisoners in and around Richmond to a place of greater security and more abundant food. During the 14 months it existed, more than 45,000 Union soldiers were confined here. Of these, almost 13,000 died from disease, poor sanitation, malnutrition, overcrowding, or exposure to the elements.

You have to see some of the sites and visit some antique store while you are there to.

Tool Gloat

Hello friends and neighbors.
I am sorry I haven’t been around much but if you know me summer is very busy for me.
The one great big thing I have done is meet up with 11 lumberjocks for a crawfish boil.

Ten Lumberjocks
I was the eleventh jock taking the picture. We gathered for a tribute to Roger Clark aka Rex who had just recently past on to the big wood shop in the sky.
Well if you get a whole bunch of wood workers gathered together there will be tools and wood traded, given and bartered for.
