Sometimes, I wake up in the wee hours of the day because I forgot or neglected something important I was supposed to do. After I toss and turn a bit, engage in a few OCD what ifs and figure out how to deal with the issue, I’m awake.
May as well get up, right?
This morning it was a screwed up caption for a project in Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist. Luckily my obsessive brain woke me up and I caught the correction before we went to press. So then, I made a strong pot of coffee and went to the studio. My Tucson rough was there on the bench, bagged and sorted, so I figured, what the heck? Doesn’t everybody work in their PJ’s at some point? I knocked out a few preforms, cleaned up the Genie and took off my rock-cutting-stained wet jammies and socks, took a speedy hot shower and zipped into the office. Life is good.
Todays tip: After you cleanup the lapidary grinder or flat lap, reassemble it and run the motor for a few seconds to dry off your wheels. Dry laps and wheels are less likely to rust on you.
