    Tip for woodworkers...

    As we all know, a good fitting dust filtering respirator is an absolute MUST when sanding.

    Having said that, make sure you take off the respirator before you sneeze...

    Yup, happened to me today. I had to take the whole, disgusting mess apart and give it a bath in the sink.

    On a brighter note, my mask is now sparkling clean and has new filters!

    Some people are like Slinkies. They're really good for nothing, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    Do I have to fumigate it when it gets here?

    You're not a true woodworker if you haven't done that at least once

    Hey Bob,

    nice story...

    My kids were recently sick with a lung infection. After a particularly nasty sneeze in the doctor's office, my wife was about to clean up when the doctor yelled, "I want that!". Well, to each his own.

    I am working on a plan for a much simpler front mount Packard Shutter arrangement. I think I can make it work with 1 board, some black nylon cloth and a surplus laser mount. Should fit any big barreled lens.

    In the process, I found the cheapest and laziest front mount Packard system. I was preparing to sell my Series II Velostigmat and an unrelated Packard. I thought, this is about the right size for the lens. Turns out it is a great press-fit. Yep, the Packard just slips on the front with enough friction to hold it in place.

    Those of us without talent have to depend on luck.

    Matt

    "Do I have to fumigate it when it gets here?" Suzanne - Nope, just figure it was the first coat of noseoil for the finish, a time saver.

    Bob, great tip. Maybe that is what I did wrong for some 20+ years. Might have saved me the two sinus surgeries. Best, tim

    P.S. Another good tip about using tape, sticky side down!

    Hang on though... as you were wearing a dust mask, what made you sneeze in the first place?


    Cheers, Bob.
