He's trying to figure out how to get it to the water, Michael.

Fun picture, Laurie. I don't think I've ever seen a buck like that in real life. Last weekend we saw a doe and two fawns outside our hotel room in Aspen. They weren't the least bit afraid of us - we were about 15 feet from them. Gillian was entranced.

I've actually been to Nara, and seen the deer park. But nothing as majestic as Laurie's buck. Those Nara deer are like overgrown bunnies with antlers...

Uhh, yeah. I thought the subliminal message was "too deer"...

The stones are 205 x 75 x 25mm, or 8" x 3" x 1". No dinky little/thin stones. Diamond plates are approximately the same dimension.

Just to add, there's another set in there now. Missing the #13000 and Atoma, replaced with an iWood #300 diamond plate instead.

The little(r) set is enough for most sharpening, but you miss out on getting an edge that's completely OTT for most things.

But even mere jack planing with that nuts #13000 edge is something special.

Stu.

How did that happen? Videos popped up, and I didn't do it.

Must be because of one of them moderator types.



Thank you!!!


I think the videos are ok, and they seem to get the message across. At least the sound is reasonable this time.

I hope they'll improve with practise, and a script...

Stu.
