Yep, doing 3 15x14 matrices, one for each of the middle 3 windows.

Some people never have anything except ideas. Go do it.
Emissions & fuel economy haven't exactly been areas of strength for past rotary power plants, but absolutely no one with a soul has ever cared.

On Thanksgiving day I managed to foolishly catch my sleeve on a spinning shaft at the lathe.
Fortunate that the lathe is an old South Bend 13" and not more powerful. :ack:
Also good that the shirt sleeve was not a stronger material.
Got a heck of a bruise and a big swollen spot the next day.
I iced it immediately when it happened but the swelling was still extremely painful.
Gave in a couple of days ago and went to get it lanced by a doctor.
Must have been delirious to think a modern doctor actually does anything useful. :roll:

Dr. made a big deal of it, wanted to send me for an Ultrasound, then a Surgeon, probably $3K+ total!
Stated that it would probably heal on its own given enough time, not a real issue unless it "Burst".

Bumped it again this morning, I don't need that sort of pain in my life.
So the point of this rant is that I cleaned a syringe needle I keep for emergencies and lanced it myself!
No topical anesthetic but the skin seems to already be numb.
Clear faintly red fluid drained, swelling gone, looks and feels MUCH better.
Can now put pressure on it without significant pain. :)
Might even get a decent nights sleep tonight!

Lesson learned, it does not take the zombie apocalypse to make a few basic medical supplies useful.
Dr's are already essentially useless for minor care unless you are overinsured.
I used to have a good GP, until O'Bummer-Care drove him out of his practice. :evil:
And yes, I did call my reps to demand they enact the O-Care repeal and Tort-Reform necessary to make health care accessible again for "The middle class".

Most doctors are part of a local health care organization. The doctor is not there to treat anybody, but to support the organization financially by feeding patients into the "system" for high tech treatment for anything they think the insurance companies will pay. This was organized in the '90's and has nothing to do with ObamaCare. Try to find a Doctor that is not financially tied to a hospital. They are hard to find.

middle class, isn't that something that died in the 80's but no one noticed till it got too late.

no good bitchin' it is only going to get worse.

soon well be saying "health care, isn't that something that died in the 2010's along with social security, and of course old people who won't get it any more.

sorry for the rant, i have no leaning towards any political party, there all a bunch of ---------.

At the risk of getting flamed, health care is one of the reasons I am glad to be a Canuck. :wink:

Also even little lathes can pack a bite. Glad to hear it wasn't worse.
