    An old movie, but I love this scene, where Jimmy decides he's going to whack Morrie. That wry smile and little head shake, what an evil man. De Niro rips it. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/tOWaHTlq-hI" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    It looked like a white meat type, reminded me of one that is light colored and flaky that we have here. I imagine good in a stew as well.

    Down in southern California, the famous "Wedge". Breaks in very shallow water, lots of carnage when it's big. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/_4sapsFuO3U" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    Nice looking fish, Ray. What's inside, white flesh? How do you normally eat that species?

    Deva, carb thing is a minor repair too basically, if it is the diaphragms that need replacement. You just have to take the carb out of the saw, which gives a good chance to clean the carb too. If you do it once you pretty much have it down, as all carbs are basically the same. Pulling off the carb on some saws can sometimes rattle your brain a bit, but it isn't rocket science. Give it a shot.

    Bob, what kind of glue are you using? Normally with woodworking glue, if you clean off the excess with water, then after everything dries, sand off the raised up grain and whatnot, there will be no stain when a finish is applied after. With an epoxy, pretty much the same, but although you can clean up with hot water (hot water also works better than cold water with white or yellow woodworking glue to remove excess), isopropyl alcohol or acetone works better to remove excess epoxy. There should be no stain to interfere with the finish if you remove excess well. You can finish things first before glue up, but a finish shouldn't be where you will apply glue to join or it can minimize the strength. It seems to me that cleaning off glue over a finish or stain already applied is more likely to cause problems. Not really advisable. If you do want to go that route, after removing the excess glue and it dries, lightly sand after. You may need an additional finish application if the linseed oil or whatever turns whitish or the water or sanding has messed it up in some other way. Fine steel wool made for woodworking (#0000) is good to use to blend and buff out a finish and remove irregularities. Good to use before a finish too, as it buffs up and smooths the wood very nicely. I usually use sandpaper to 380 or 4 something, then steel wool. Wool works magnifico on end grain.

    No doubt the gent there is smart about keeping armament, but is there some risk in keeping all those things laying about that go bang....old and whatnot? My uncle kept his footlocker up in the rafters of our garage in California, gear from his time in the service during WW2. When a kid I'd check it out when nobody was home, all kinds of cool stuff in there. He had his side arm 45 in there and an Italian pistol that he brought back. He also had clips and ammo. The stuff was pretty green moldy looked and smelled. I tried to fire the Italian gun once, but it wouldn't. I was skeered to try the 45, the stubby fat bullets looked powerful and the gun was heavy, I thought with the gun and ammo so old in that state, something could go awry. I called a gun shop to see if the'd look at the Italian pistol so it could fire, it was a cool looking gun. When the guy asked me how old I was and I told him twelve, he said that I better not be touching that gun, then he hung up. :guns: Eventually my uncle turned it into the cops.

    I had a friend from Tasmania, a real independent, creative, and interesting guy, became an artist blacksmith among other things. He sailed his boat all over before I had met him. From knowing him and what he had said about Tasmania, it always seemed like a real cool place. Eventually he moved back there after living in the states and becoming famous for designing and teaching about wood fired bread baking ovens. He went around giving seminars, it became his mission. He put out a book on it. Alan Scott was his name, and I believe his family, the Scotts, are quite well known in Tasmania. Alan passed away a few years back, a great loss for his many friends and a great number of people that he inspired.

    It does sound like it could be an air leak. Just wondering about the condition of the carb, particularly the pump and metering diaphragms, have they become hardened and unable to function properly? I think in addition to looking for a hose leak, pulling apart the carb to clean and check it out could be useful. Diaphragms needing replacement, particularly the metering one, are what I find the most with fuel not moving properly, then hoses that have become old.

    I thought I'd try growing a tea that people used to drink for health purposes in these parts, called Habucha. Mostly found in Asia or India I believe, but I saw someone in Bulgaria selling seeds on line, so I bought some. I think originally from India where he got them. I thought Japan customs might hold them up if they looked suspicious, but they came to my mailbox quick. I've been drinking dokudami tea (get the poison out) for years, no need to plant, it grows in abundance wild around. I just cut it and hang up to dry. Love the taste, and quite soothing. Makes you want to take a leak, probably a good thing.

    Probably so. I don't think the airline industry gives a second thought to sketchy pilots anymore, or ones that show up to fly after having a few drinks. Payout compensation to passenger families can run into big numbers.

    You guys getting your eye pressure checked? I have to go in for surgery soon, the optic nerve in my left eye is getting fried. Glaucoma or what leads to it is no joke, and lots have it without knowing. A quick painless check tells the pressure and if any need for concern. Even infants can have glaucoma. If eye drops can't control the pressure, they be doing some cutting or burning or you can go blind. Better to catch it quick.

    I handle edges all the time sharpening and what not that need to be a lot sharper than chains, maybe that's why I feel little need for gloves.

    I guess it happens, but I don't think I've ever heard of a saw not wanting to run from sitting out in the rain. Me and another guy were cutting some steep banks around some rice fields once with mowers, powerful things that can get away from you. He tipped his over into the river, completely submerged it. No starting the thing after that. I almost did the same thing that day.

    woodworkingboy replied to a thread PPE for filing? in Chainsaws!
    How much do the guys work with their hands? Are they used to handling sharp edges beyond simply chainsaws? Over familiarity can bite you too, but where proper caution is exerted I don't think anything else is needed when doing chains. Safety glasses is a good habit, but I've never used them with chains. Can't hurt....
