Sounds like you are staying busy.


Today, I'm doing odds and ends in the storeroom, and checking out some 20 year old wheat.

Bought some replacement for the storeroom today. Didn't add any though.
Been starting some seeds for the upcoming garden season.  ;D ;D

Fixed the reloading press, installed a new, brighter fiber-optic front sight on my Saiga 12, somewhat improved my new workshop. Got in touch with local chimney-guy who should be able to help me turning one of my basement rooms into a handy little forge shop, which I'll use before I can fix the 19th century forge in one of the old farm buildings back on the property. Bought a bunch of old tools in a pawn shop, some files, shoemaker's hammer and a jointer plane (in excellent condition, which is not very common, most old planes are badly beaten). Continued working on the flintlock stock. Using just handtools and old techniques (smoking the parts over a candle to inlet them and such).
