1/2" Doweling should make good leaf hangers, I'll post a sort of finished product tomorrow.
Got sidetracked and charged off in a different direction. Anyway it's all rainy and windy here today so I spent it making leaf hanging thingys.

Not very good pics you can get the gist. Found a pile of stainless steel clothes Peg's they should be OK in the kiln. In theory I will be able to get about 5-600 leaves in there.

There ya go.shoud give something to look at. Sleep time for me, now we moved to daylight savings last night. So it'll probably take me a week to get used to it.

Did the chicken inspector find it up to scratch:)
Is it ready for launch?

Good to see other countries besides America torment their citizens with daylight savings time. Us northern hemisphere folk should be getting off daylight savings soon. The weather is getting cooler and mosquitoes are dying back to almost normal. The sun is falling back almost two hours now. My baccy plants that aren't supposed to be photosensitive seem to agree that it's time for a last ditch flowering effort - they know better than me for planting so late:)

I'm putting my chickens to work preparing next years planting bed this winter. Have you ever employed your chickens for manual labor like that or does their union only allow blue collar jobs like kiln inspectors?

Now choose No: 1 as the main electric generator.

Oldfella, I was just joking about you making a flying kiln. Looking at all this I'm starting to think you are going to accomplish it though:)

Update for today, I've decided to rebuild the nuke reactor.aka fan motor. (Clever disguise). This is going increase the power output and give me an incredible speed at warp speed 3.IMG_20201010_121357~2.jpg IMG_20201010_121417~2.jpg IMG_20201010_123329~2.jpgIMG_20201010_123252~2.jpg IMG_20201010_123351~2.jpgIMG_20201010_123329~2.jpg

Dilithium Crystals, while more expensive, are safer and can attain short bursts of warp 10. Highly recommend. (y)
