    Not only that, but I should have all of my paperwork done by this weekend. Needless to say, Indie and I will have to find a few excuses to run errands all weekend and I don't plan on touching the truck at all.

    Meh... Vin plate came in today and I was able to install it on the firewall; however, not one of the neighborhood cops were home to sign the form for me. Argh.... The delay continues.

    Little before and after:

    [​IMG]Opinel mod

    Reshaped, burned, and sanded down handle. Drilled lanyard hole. Treated wood with grape seed oil. Stuck blade in potato. Still trying to figure out how to try out some file work on the blade...

    Dremel. Filing hardened steel is misery.
    Nice mods.

    Great little picnic knives. They don't necessarily stay closed very well, so keep an eye out. Or with a bit of inner tube around them. I've had various sizes for years, and though I almost never use them anymore, I won't let 'em go either. And the carbon blades are excellent.

    Dremel it is then. Let’s see if I can’t mark up the blade too much.

    ...and apparently they rejigged the collar on them, so they lock in the closed position as well. Saves me from stabbing my thigh.

    Don't stab your thigh, that's bad!
    Friday, the top of my tool box at work registered 122*f. Perfect welding weather, not!

    The lack of chiggers is the only positive effect I have seen from the South American fire ant invasion.

    Fire ants consume LOTS of "bug eggs", including chigger eggs. Since the fire ants moved in, I seldom encounter chiggers in many places where they used to live. I think I have gotten a "dose of chiggers" only 1 time in the last 0 or 12 years.
