    Armor Stands

    I wanted to get my shirts up off the floor and off of the work bench so I made some armor stands for them. We haven't had 4x4 lumber here of any sort for months so I screwed two 2x4's together, made a modified base where two legs on the x axis were shorter than those on the y axis so that they didn't stick out as far from the wall (of course I screwed one of the up and put the legs on the wrong sides), and I had an 8 foot dowel rod for another project that I cut down to 22" segments to drape the shirts on. All I needed was the 2x4's and the stain/polycrylic, everything else I had. The stands are 4 feet tall and I left plenty of room for a couple of coifs to be added to each one. I've got a ton more room on my work bench for larger projects as these stands keep the shirts up out of the way perfectly, now all I need is for TRL to restock the rings I need to make the coifs and I'm good to go. I have 2 other shirts I'm working on so when I get rings for and finish those I'll probably add another stand or two.

    I thought it was backed up on Onedrive, but it turned out it wasn'tšŸ˜•. I'm now going to be keeping back-ups on an external drive, flashdrive, and email.

    If you're not using something like Scrivener, then Google Docs is your friend. It tracks revisions, does live saves, and can be accessed from any connected computer on multiple platforms. Makes losing that manuscript a lot less likely, next time

    Lately, I've been enjoying my new torch šŸ˜€. Added several more silversmithing pieces into my inventory over the last few months. I'm also trying to write my second novel, or re-write to be more precise. I'd had it nearly finished in December until it met with a fatal laptop malfunction that completely corrupted the file beyond all repair šŸ˜­. On top of all that, I've also been working on my digital painting/sketching skills.

    That looks great. I've been learning to work with leather - still a lot to learn, but a lot of fun. I need to get some pictures. Did some leather armor, a belt for my granddaughter, a knife sheath, and a few other odds and ends. I need to retire so I have more time to play with my hobbies.

    My high school chemistry class had us experiment with a small scale flour bomb. We had a a steel coffee can with a hole cut in the side, a rubber tube fed thru the hole, and a small funnel was inserted into the tube inside the can. A small candle was placed inside the can as well. A spoonful of flour went into the funnel, the candle was lit, plastic lid snapped on to the can, then a quick puff into the hose the aerosolize the flour and BOOM! Off flew the lid. Add a bit more flour, relight the candle (if needed), snap the lid back on, and do again. It must have been a great lesson, seeing as it's stuck with me over 30 years.

    Building a bomb/MacGyver... It was intended to be a cutesy line in a thriller movie, but I think you can "build a bomb out of Bisquick." Maybe not a huge explosive yield per pound, but still combustible. It'd be a flour bomb: aerosolize flour in sufficient concentration inside a closed space, light it with a naked flame, whoomph. They've lost parts of factories (a paper towel factory was one -- dust built up) and whole grain silos this way. It's a matter of the fuel being so finely divided that it burns really fast.

    We currently have 27lbs in stock. You would need to purchase the stock we have and put a note on the order that you want a total of 36lbs. It will be 1 -2 months before more is made, so the order would not be shipped until the extra is ready. Please note on the order that you are aware it will take an additional 1 to 2 months to get the total amt.
