I had intended to go to site to bolt down the latest stud frame.
However, with Linda being in hospital for almost two weeks (she's back home, fine now) I had dropped a number of working days.
I felt I really needed to make some progress for one of my clients so I allocated Saturday to working on their project.
Sunday was spent preparing to mill another 30 pieces of stud frame.
I was down to 3 sets of planer blades all needing sharpening, one with a nick in it from hitting a nail.
I spent a few hours sharpening these on a wet stone grinder.
This is definitely an acquired skill but I am getting better each time and it is almost a pleasure to sharpen them now.
There is a real benefit in being able to change over blades when the become even paritally blunt and then touch them up quickly on the grind stone.
Each working day I manage to perform the planer step on about 6 lengths during work breaks.
I am hoping by next Saturday to have all the finished milled studs to build the two last frames on Ross's side of the house.
PS - the bruising on my thumb is taking forever to grow out.
