    I almost ordered two new sets of strings; I guess they were on sale last time.

    Hi Leon, I use carnauba wax , a very hard wax. I touch the buffing wheel with it for a second and then buff the wood.
    I buy mine at Lee Valley in Canada

    However, they sell soft formulations for wood turnes of carnauba wax, bees wax and mineral oil that you can apply by hand with a rag. I made my own my melting a bit of these waxes and mixing with oil and it worked very well.

    Good morning Guardians :)

    Thank you. I'll have to take a new updated photo of the whole flock soon.
    Well, in that case, my point (;)) is:
    Sometimes the tip of a wharncliffe is too delicate, and a sheepfoot is too beefy and awkward. Then the Lambsfoot is the blade that Goldilocks liked: "Just right." :cool::thumbsup:

    I'm off to try some of this precious stuff on my eggs. I hope everyone has a fun, safe weekend.

    I think they must have heard me coming Ron :rolleyes: Got a lot round here recently, because of some local idiot feeding them on an almost industrial scale o_O When I was out in the back garden the other day, there must have been at least a dozen on my roof. Obviously, I don't want to wreck my own roof, so I only armed myself with some clay balls as ammunition, but when I went out today, there was only one up there, and he soon flew off. Think I might have to make a few trips :rolleyes: While I was out there, I took this pic for Jer @scrteened porch ! :D I certainly wouldn't trust one of the local Greys with a Lambsfoot though, they'd either chew the scales off or run off with it! :eek:

    Hope you two rustle up some good grub Ron! :D :) :thumbsup:

    Nice choice Jer :) :thumbsup:

    Looks like some wind has passed through there Dan, nice pics :) :thumbsup:

    Definitely Rachel :) Enjoy your eggs :) :thumbsup:

    That sounds like they were tipped off Jack! ;) I definitely wouldn’t trust that big Grey with a Lambsfoot. With my luck that thing would run off and bury it for a later day. Every flower pot or plant bed we have has small oaks coming up from the squirrels burying acorns! :rolleyes: If they did decide to chew it would be a disaster! :eek: If they can chew up a hickory nut they would demolish some Stag, Horn or Ebony! :eek: ;) :D

    Something people don't realize is that when there is a group of squirrels around your house, they can undermine the slab of your house if built on a slab or your foundation if built on a foundation. We've had a few issues with that in my area with Belding Ground Squirrels. In one instance, they undermined a slab and the house had to be raised on jacks and have cement pumped in to stabilize the house. Very, very, costly to the owner.

    Hope everyone is having a good Friday :) I'm off out for a hike tomorrow, and there's actually a country pub and restaurant halfway (fancy that :rolleyes:). I've booked in for 3 courses, so I just hope I can waddle the rest of the way afterwards :D Have a great weekend Guardians :thumbsup:

    Thanks, very helpful. Made dad always said, if you want to learn or know about something, ask someone who knows what they're talking about. Have a good weekend.:)

    Just another reason I always say, the only good squirrel is a fried squirrel.
