Mum Died Today

 My beautiful Mum, Hilary, died this afternoon.

Mercifully it was after she'd got back home to her own place, so it was in a much nicer and more loving environment, and with more loving people.

I had planned to fly up to be with her tomorrow afternoon. Too late.

Diamond Hones


I bought myself some diamond hones via AliExpress, and 3d-printed some double-sided holders for them.

They are about 20x150mm, on 1mm steel sheets.

I got 320, 600, 800, 1200 and 2000 grits.

The 320 holder (in the clips under the lid) is empty on the other side; I'll probably glue a strip of leather in that socket for use as a strop.
