    Last night I drew this picture that expresses my feelings about the world right now, and then stabbed it many times with my pen. I also stabbed myself in the arm with my pen, but it was somewhat painful and caused bleeding so I *probably* won't do it again. Scan2020-01-24_135618.jpg

    One type of vegetarian dim sum as there are no restaurants that make or serve it where I live now. It's mashed tofu with green onion/garlic/shredded carrot/sesame oil/mirin wrapped in a rice paper wrapper and steamed. With a diluted white miso dipping sauce with ginger in it. They looked like the ones on the left:

    I made an edible beach using Berry Blue Jello, vanilla cookie crumbs, two towels cut out from a striped fruit roll-up, two licorice babies to sunbathe on the towels, whipped cream for the surf, and a paper beach umbrella. 20200315_165217.jpg

    Recently I bought two of these at a bulk store:

    [​IMG]

    Two of the same size, to replace plastic wrap. Also bought cakes of beeswax so I could make them myself. As all they consist of is cotton fabric coated in a layer of wax.

    It was relatively easy to make them, melting the wax and adding a little vegetable oil to make the wax more pliable you brush it on to cut pieces of fabric as I coated both sides lightly. And let them dry.

    They require some work to keep clean, washing in cold water with a little soap. And last for about a year and then can be cut up and recycled. Although they likely could simply be re-coated over and over with wax.

    They don't seal containers or bowls perfectly for storage in the fridge but as long as you use the food in two to three days they function adequately. They work well with fruit and vegetables as they allow some air through the waxed fabric.

    Chainsaw clutch removal wrench.
    A special tool is required to pull the clutch assembly from a Poulan chainsaw in order to replace the automatic bar oiling pump.
    No sense in ordering one and waiting for it when I can just make my own in my shop, so that is how my day began.
    20200403_121122.jpg Split pins were used for the drivers, and were adjusted for proper length after installation.
    The bore in the wrench was slip fitted with a .002" clearance over the crankshaft end that pilots the tool.
    The pin centers were held at .005" clearance spacing over the engagement areas on the clutch.

    Tool in place on the clutch:
    20200403_120230.jpg
    A junk socket was press fitted in place to provide a square drive for a wrench.
    I used a 3/8" to hex adapter on my cordless screw impact tool to spin the clutch assembly off the crankshaft end.

    Removal tool, blue arrow
    Bar oil pump removed from saw, red arrow

    Pump with stripped driven gear:

    The new pump was just $26 and I have about an hour wrapped up in making the tool, which in turn saved the saw that was otherwise useless as it was.

    Those look delicious. I found an ancient ebleskiver cast iron pan in my mother's kitchen when she passed away. She never used it and I have no idea which ancestor owned it but you inspire me to try using it. There's little else to do these days but cook! And get fat if I don't watch it! :)

    I'm making a birthday card for my partner. Really going all out this year with thoughtful gifts etc.

    Been a while since I used MS Paint. I really enjoy the programme. Simple but very effective.

    You're a handy person to have around. Can we please borrow you for a couple of days to fix things on our farm? Like the big old Massey Ferguson tractor a/k/a "the MF tractor", the lose piece of metal on the bush hog pasture mower, install the new gate I want in the horse barn, weld together an old metal pipe gate in one of the pastures that is falling apart, etc. etc. etc. It never ends.
