    the checking is really dependent on the speed of drying. That’s why ends are sealed to slow the process. I have seen checks run the entire length and be seen from the outside, but I don’t remember any checks that ran the length on the inside and couldn’t be seen externally. I have seen overlapping short checks that did go the length i appreciate the flat rate offe! Thank you

    Man I wish I lived closer. I’d love to get some of that olive wood to carve some spoons and other things from.

  7. Prayers needed for Dad please

    Charles, method of praying doesn’t matter as long as it is done. And thank you all - he’s feeling good enough now to complain about his intubeation. They only have monitors like heart, pulse, oxygen on him - no assistance for anything is needed. He’s a tough old bird - turns out that a hole had opened up in the membrane supporting the intestines and a short section had fallen into it. They pulled it out, stitched the hole, and did not find any necrosis- they are going back in tomorrow just to be sure as these kinds of issues are not too be taken lightly. Prayers have definitely helped - thank you again.

    Chirpy is a laboratory test that requires one independent variable for the scientific method -in this case, amount of energy lost in striking the sample is the independent variable. I once read a master's thesis for a metallurgist wherein more than 800 samples were tested. As you know, toughness is the resistance to tearing. Thomas is right - hardness is only one thing to consider. When selecting blade steels, how the blade is to be used should drive the steel choice using hardness, toughness, strength, ductility, corrosion resistances , etc should be part of the steel selection process. Put simply: Strength measures the resistance of a material to failure, given by the applied stress (or load per unit area) Toughness measures the energy required to crack a material; it is important for things which suffer impact Increasing strength usually leads to decreased toughness Tempered steel is tougher but less strong than after quenching.

    Thank s for the prayers. They are working. He’s out of surgery and he did great. Fixed the issue in time before cells had started to die from loss of blood. They had been talking ICU because of his age, but he did so well, they are putting him in progressive care. Keep the prayers coming for the quick recovery and release from the hospital. He’s already tilled his garden and started his cool weather plants, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and has some lettuce and spinach in a hot bed. So, he needs to get out and take care of it. Also, he still heats with wood, so my brother and I will be tending his wood fired boiler for a bit He wIll be in recovery room until early this morning, so everyone is going to bed now. So, thanks again and keep ‘em coming. Thanks Lionel H and glad to hear it wasn’t cancer. Sent a prayer out for his recovery. Psalm 41:3. “The Lord sustains them on their sickbed and restores them from their bed of illness.”

    Thanks. He’s in surgery now, so it’s a waiting game now.

    Father is 86. Went into hospital with lots of abdominal pain. Has twisted bowel. Surgery in about an hour. While everything else is good, heart, blood, etc, surgery at 86 is never easy. I would appreciate a quick prayer for Dad.

    All kinds of ways to get 3 phase running on single phase Knew a fellow that pull started like a lawn mower the motor to get it spinning and then used a bank of capacitators to keep it going until it started creating its own third phase Also phase converters, and other methods Google is your friend

    Won’t have to nibble your nails now.
  15. Yes, in a boat, with a goat. Not with a Fox in Sox. Haven’t you ever heard of people speaking of how good the anvil didd? Where do you think the term “I didd it” comes from? lastly, from Marvin K. Mooney,would you please go now”? - “Go I said, and go I meant. The time had come, so Marvin went.”
