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.

A TV first?

Quote:  "Tim said, “He was bound and determined to try to make a name for himself on live TV because he failed at it so many times. So no, I don’t blame the gun, I blame the guy that was holding the gun.” "

Well it was on right wing Fox News so that may explain it.  Usually you see reporters exploiting the grief of relatives who say the country needs more gun control without having much of an idea what they are talking about.

Another tragedy more dumb comments




The recent shooting of the TV reporters is indeed ironic since they worked for a station that along with others helps to create more shooters who want to feel significant so use violence to become famous.

The solution here is we need TV control. Stations are licensed by the federal government so should be required to never mention the name of the person who kills people or even show the person's picture.  Only the victims get to become famous.  Now if this sounds dumb TWW challenges people to come up with a solution that would actually do anything except make people feel good.  The shooter bought his guns legally.

TWW also predicts the next shooter to become famous will be wearing a body camera to catch all the action so he can put it on Facebook or Youtube.

Latest adventures in freeloading

Be sure your benefactor gets some premiums (the name on the card was not a premium but instead another favor). In addition our benefactor got some zucchini and apples.

You need to be Superman to change a Reeves drive on a lathe

This is how a Reeves drive works.  A lathe with this drive is cheaper to make so can be sold to people like TWW who are cheap. The problem is you need to be Superman to get the lathe apart and back together again when they get dirty and stop working right.
Steve Reeves as Superman


TWW found a gizmo on the Internet to take the thing apart and get it back together again. 


You tighten this nut and it pulls the other end away from the clip holding the cover on. If you mess up the stuff goes flying in directions. 

Back together but runs a little crooked. Oh well .....
