Those look impressive!  I'd better get back to work :)

Hopefully I'm done with knee milling exercises, the biopsy went well and the bugs have moved out, and the final revision knee was installed three weeks ago in a 4 hour surgery.  Didn't watch, although they did let me get to the OR before giving me the amnesia juice.  23cm incision so it grew about 75mm/3" over the previous one, they like to keep using the same spot (has to do with preserving blood vessels) so only one scar despite 5 visits inside.  This recovery is my best so far

While I still can't sit in the desk chair long enough to do anything useful I'm looking forward to getting back to the router and programming project.  I'm not sure the inexpensive dinky router, or my rusty programming skills, are up to the quality of Hessel's work.

Thanks to all of you!  The last 6+ months have been rough at times, although lots of other people have been through lots worse.

I try to think of it as a interesting experience, lots of high technology, exotic (non-recreational) pharmaceuticals, and advanced medical techniques that are very interesting to watch and read about.  The engineer and medic coming out, I guess.  A one in a million type of infection, not the everyday 1 in 100 (per joint replacement) type.  I admit it would be just as interesting to watch it in somebody else :) , without all the discomfort and physical therapy.  Although maybe I'd still be distracted by all the work that somehow decided to show up as I eased into retirement rather than getting back to the important stuff like CNC and gear making.  Anybody know of a good deal on a smaller fellows gear shaper?

As an incentive to get back in the desk chair, plus an inability to resist the black friday sales, an Ender 3 Pro 3D printer will arrive today and be taking up residence next to the 3018 router.  Not an i3 Mk3, alas, but fits the available space better.  Time to see if I can 3D print a club foot escapement, making it actually tick could be another show.  Then there's the getting back to the guilloche software project, need to decide if it's time to move on to Visual C++ or keep fiddling with Processing.  All this image stuff, graphics, math, clipping (how do I fit a round pattern in a square hole?), etc is outside my embedded system/OS/realtime comfort zone

Well, 90% of people wish they would have had their knee replacements sooner :)  I wish I could have held out until the 3D printed cartilage got out of the lab and past it's perpetual 10 years from being usable stage.  Might arrive about the same time practical fusion power does.

I suggest an ice pack, a good TV show,  and maybe some adult beverages

Resurrecting this topic a previously owned MDF V1.0 Rose Engine has arrived at the southern Mooselake Manor! It still needs an X-Y table (they recommend one from the Little Machine Shop), a cutting frame motor (Penn State's 3/4hp variable speed mini-lathe conversion), a paper chuck (think notepad on a 1-8 lathe faceplate, I plan a steel plate for magnets instead of taping) some belting, and undoubtedly miscellaneous bits and bobs. It was converted from a hand crank to a NEMA 23 stepper. Somewhat disassembled for travel, the reassembly time went into dealing with hurricane Ian yard cleanup instead

Will do, need to order the missing parts instead of working on new muscle aches :) . This one was used for some youtube videos a few years back. The control system is different now, a single stepper and rotary knob instead of the multi-stepper control in the videos but the base machine is the same.
