I got my check for $6700 for the options that I cashed, and deposited it in the bank today. Most of that will go to pay for my braces. I sent of checks to IRS and NY state for estimated taxes for 2005.*grumble* I am looking at buying a lathe. I am watching one on eBay that I am hoping to get for a reasonable price. I can use it to make some of the martial arts weapons I am working on producing. I have made a handfull, and have materials to make another small quantity. I am working on getting my shop set up better. I installed some new outlets by my work bench, and ran romex to the breaker box, but found breaker bow to be full, even though there are four unused punchouts on the front. So now I have to figure out where I want to wire it to. I am also going to build some shelving, and build a new work bench to replace a very unstable one I have in that spot. Besides the martial arts weapons, I figure I can make decorative bowls and such. I haven’t sued a lathe for years, but it was fun. And I have a backyard (1.6 acres) full of oak and maple trees. Not that I will be cuting them down, but I have branches, and trees fall during the occasional wind storms. I saw a guy selling turned bowls at a craft fair once that I believe were turned from drift wood. But in any case I plan to make money from the lathe.
