I completed another enhancement to the Tooling Tracker and then took a long break. The shop elf and I started to binge watch some spy/mystery/action movies and series on Amazon:
- Jack Ryan - movie and Amazon series
- The Terminal List - Amazon series
- Jason Bourne - all movies
- Reacher - Amazon series (not the movies)
I rested and read 4 books in less than 4 weeks.
AND I to played in the studio again. I have been slowly acquiring tools to use with the hydraulic press (thus the diversion with making the Tooling Tracker) and I spend some of each day making sample pressings of the various impression dies and texture samples using the rolling mill, of the texture plates and practiced making some small dishes with texture and impressions to learn how best to do that. Along the way I also semi-disassembled the rolling mill to clean and recalibrate it.
I am not done as I have to make some boxes, cups and dishes with texture and impressions.
