|The now improved, freshly outfitted bandsaw,|
my favorite artist tool (with art associate, Remus)
Below: Queen of Hearts, before and after
There I was on Cindi's blog www.oldblackcatboo.blogspot.com with friend and fellow artist, Sandy Mastroni www.smastroni.blogspot.com
I never would have thought our connection, other than art, was the use of saws, shared by all three of us.
Of course, everyone knows power tools are the tie that bind women together. Just not a Kitchen Aid mixer in this case.
And only yesterday I was getting even more intimate with my bandsaw after a bearing froze. Only knew from a distance what either of those terms meant, but I know better now.
After disassembling much of my saw, I gave up and called the tech department for assistance. Didn't want to strip the screw I was trying to loosen with all my might. The man on the other end of the line confirmed, in a husky southern drawl, that what I was doing was correct. He had to repeat this a couple of times before my ear attuned to his accent. So now I can interpret toolspeak with a southern drawl. You never know what you're going to learn next.
