TWW is The Warped Woodturner who is a local artist living in a suburb of Springbrook, WI (pop 87). His mission is to use a wood lathe to make interesting but mostly useless objects from locally-sequestered carbon for tourists to bring back to the city to give to people they had to buy something for but don't like that well. His target market is the senior citizens since their vision is not as good as it used to be so cannot see the defects as well.

Mrs TWW is thankful on Thanksgiving:



Mr. TWW's lathe is broken. Mr. TWW is thankful the Sears Master Protection Agreement covers the parts.

Sears also showed a bit of brilliant customer service in the process that should make its stockholders proud. Sears customer service had a female service rep who talked with TWW who told her what parts were broken and needed replacement. She cheerfully told him the parts are covered by the warranty. Next, she asked if he could fix the lathe himself. (That is the brilliant part). No real man who has ever bought a Craftsman tool is going to admit to a woman he can't fix something so Sears does not have to spend money sending a repairperson out to TWW's to install the parts.

Fortunately, TWW found a Web site with detailed instructions on how to fix this type of lathe (http://aroundthewoods.com). Squishing up the spring in the picture is not easy.

Also, as seen in the picture TWW had his duct tape out in case it was needed.

Mr. BANANA's House still 90% done


TWW volunteered to be on the board of the Friends of the Namekagon Pine Barrens and that is taking up a bunch of his time so 'sorry for the lack of reporting on the house (which is 90% done) and TWW's exciting life.
