ultra-thin kerf crosscut blade

Instead of the gulping and scratching this morning, BB sat upright in bed and said, "How much do you want to know about the ultra-thin kerf crosscut blade? Do you want anti-kickback, sound-deadening cut-outs or should you be concerned about thermal expansion or excessive wear? What bevel angle do you go for? That's what I can't decide."

What does a girl have to do to get some sleep round here!

With the elections nearly over, BB must now focus his attention on rebuilding the mill next-door (hence his ruminations on circular saws). He has already converted two ateliers (workshops) on the property into a house, and this year work starts on the main building. Which, for me, means months and months of "can you come and hold this for me?"

On the subject of circular saws: we were recently witnesses at the civil wedding of friends of ours in another village, where the mayor conducting the ceremony (who runs a sawmill) had just had his hand sewn back on after picking up a (still spinning) circular saw!

You can tell who the sawmill workers are round here because they have to take off their socks and shoes to count up to 10.

Memo to me: take out extra health insurance.
