Nigel, Pano, Mr Zenith,
I was off the radar for the last few days, drove up to NE Philly to the router bit store:

MLCS Router Bits and Woodworking Products

Router Bits, Woodworking Supplies, Woodworking Tools - EagleAmerica.com

Picked up a selection of router bits, cutters and a lot of other cool stuff.
Great bunch of guys there, all very helpful -- highly recommended.

To add to the list below, keep the pitch off of the cutters also and If you do sharpen them, go easy, no need to grind them down to a stub, but that said replacement cutters are easy to find these days.

There are tons of used drill press machines out there, Craigs or other places.

The keys to success - and safety - are to:
  1. Only use these in a drill press, and make certain the blade is sharp.
  2. Clamp the workpiece securely to the press table, using a sacrificial surface underneath.
  3. Make certain that all adjustment screws are secure before tightening the chuck.
  4. Use a press speed (rpm) appropriate to the material you're cutting.
  5. Feed the cutting blade slooooooowly into the workpiece. Let the blade do all the cutting.
It does take skill, but with a little practice you can achieve excellent results - and without sawing your arm off (it happens)....

Yesterday and today, Amazon baits us with "Prime Day" where there are some deals and a lot of junk.

After filling up an empty 480 GB SSD with over 50,000 pictures on my recent Florida trip, I took the bait on a 1TB Sandisk SSD for $149 last night. I plug them into a USB adapter and use them as fast USB flash drives.

I have a 200 GB SD card in the camera which needs to be emptied every couple of days. I am taking long sequences of images spaced every second for assembly into time lapse videos for Youtube.

A can of dark blue paint for my speaker cabinets. Odd names the different hues have: "dystropic doghairs", or "dying prophet" or just "do it harder than yesterday".
Anyway this a warm darkblue color with a satin finish. Pictures to come in the the fullrange speaker thread. (Soon )

I don't know Swedish. In American, paint often has food-theme names.

A new bean to cup coffee machine.
The old one gave up the ghost yesterday morning just before our long-time friends arrived.

It had been in almost constant use for over 5 years so not so bad.
