Over the course of the last week, some of you may have noticed a number at the bottom of every post. I've put that there not so much for you but to remind me of the countdown to post 4000.
This is it, and I don't have much to say except thank you to my regular readers and to everyone who stops by. Since Blogger tells us the number of the post, I've known this has been
coming for quite a while, and back over the summer I estimated it would be around now. You regular readers will have noticed I tend to put up one post a day, so a thousand posts takes about three years. By that, 4000 takes about 12 years, and my 12th blogiversary will be in February, so I'm ahead of schedule.
Last Sunday, I said I thought I'd finish the crankshaft for my 1 by 1 engine. I ended up finishing that today. After slowly trimming both sides to their proper lengths, I had to make a single purpose tool to help stabilize it for the last operation, and that added a few hours. That's a story for another day.
