In the World of the High Tech Redneck, the Graybeard is the old guy who earned his gray by making all the mistakes, and then tries to keep the young 'uns from repeating them. Silicon Graybeard is my term for an old hardware engineer; a circuit designer. Here are mental droppings from a newly retired radio engineer running from tech news to economics; from firearms to the world at large; from radio to home machine shops and making all kinds of stuff.

New Little Sunday Afternoon Project
My weekend woodworking project. Damascus steel with amboyna burl scales on the handles, brass rivet pins. 12 1/2 inches long. Wicked sharp. I didn't make the steel; the blade was my Christmas gift from the lovely Mrs. Graybeard. All I did was the woodworking. Not exactly New Yankee Workshop stuff...
