Back in the workshop

My summer break has been a little longer this year but now I am back in the workshop. The hand has healed well but instead my drywheel has been giving me trouble bending an axel causing epoxi to end up in the wrong place. Hopefully that is now fixed, we will see tomorrow.

I noticed something interesting weighing the next batch, I have oak that have lower density than the beechwood, usually it is the other way around but 20 year old oak can dry up really well. The top bait in the picture is beechwood, it weighs 32g and carry 13g. The lower bait in the picture is old dry oak, it weighs 24g but carry 14g.
