Someone once said, "Time Heals All Wounds."

Although if you get something chopped off and it falls into a blender..  time's not very good with that one!


I once caught a thumb in a circular saw - took a 'V' shape out the end of it and the nail.  And another time I caught the end of two fingers in the bed planer.  Took about 3mm off the end of one finger, and the other was like a flip top bin lid with the skin still just attached!

Luckily neither caught bones, so things are fine now.

Hopefully we'll all manage to keep our fingers out of the way of 'Spinning Blades Of Death' in the future!

I got some of the rub and buff in both gold and silver as well as found some blue spray paint for glass.

unfortunately I didn't take a picture of the work I did
but I used little tiny amount of the silver rub and buff and it made the gray piece of plastic looks silver. I should probably find a polyurethane spray to seal the image.

Surgery is not today. But will be mostlikly tomorrow. Just had an examination today.

why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

Had the operation today - everyone says good things. Sounds like I'm going to be fine - in time.  ;)

Wishing you a speedy recovery. :o

In the cities in the streets there's a tension you can feel,
The breaking strain is fast approaching, guns and riots.
Politicians gamble and lie to save their skins,
And the press get fed the scapegoats,
Public Enema Number One.

Ask if you can borrow those lights for your console room!

Did they use a general anesthetic on you?  I decided I don't like general anesthetic.  I've only had it used on my once and it is like someone just edited out an hour (more? I don't even know) of your life.  Got a knee fixed and I remember going into the operating room.  Then I blinked and I was back where they did the preop.

I had that, back in March. It's definitely a bit freaky but I'm ok with it as my knee is much better.

They said they were going to apply a local anesthetic but I demanded the imported stuff.  :P I remained conscious for the operation but my head was under a tent so I didn't get to see that.

I have a few of these round boxes I found at Michael's arts and crafts store.
I initially thought these would be excellent meter housings for a Hartnell/Troughton console.

Then I had to dump my collection of Dematerialiseation Circuit parts out of it.

Now I just need to find another top to a circular box and cut a hole to see the light inside.

Took the time to read a card from a friend;

We sent them a card & got one from them as well. Hope they're doing OK as there wasn't any info in it either.

I'm taking the card as a good sign.

I never noticed before but look at the picture with Romana's hand in it...

...now look at the black dummy switches...

...now look at the black block under the silver rectangle at the top of the panel...

...do you thing they used the same thing to make the rocker switches as they did the lower edge of the block?
I speak to you from the final days of Gallifrey. I am the past you have forgotten. You are the future I will not live to see...

warmcanofcoke

You talking about the Cove moulding that was used as switches?
