I’ve been out of my shop for over 2 yrs.

Forum: Woodworking

I had to have a total hip replacement and I’m still using a Cane. I sure miss not being able to get back in the shop. I don’t feel steady enough to feed lumber through My machinery. So I’m in the process of building a remote controlled lawnmower. I can sit on a chair and cut my grass using an rc transmitter. I have a friend who can lift my lawnmower up on my assembly table. It’s been fun figuring out the electronics. I miss you guys and gals, stay safe billp

Good to hear from you, I hope your new hip gives you a new lease on life. My Wife had hip replacement 3+ years back did wonders for her no pain no limp a real Blessing.

Your lawn mower project sounds like an interesting endeavor (way beyond my abilities). Let us know how it works.

Best wishes on a full recovery from the hip replacement. Don’t be afraid to get a second opinion if you don’t get better soon. My mom’s was misaligned and only after a second surgery (by a surgeon at Mayo who specialized in correcting botched hip replacements) did she recover fully.

I sure hope you get your health issues straightened our soon Bill. I read you interview again and I know you have such a passion for woodworking. Good luck.
