6 hours in.....and a gunfight at the CNC machine
Feeling a bit chatty so yet another post. Just wanted to show the amount of time it takes to mill these things out. This pic is taken after about 6 hours of hard cutting. Still got a very long way to go, but it will get there.
So I am in the shed minding my own business and this guy runs right past my foot.
This is the most brazen mouse I have ever seen. He keeps strolling back and forth right in front of me. I am pretty cool with nature, but mice tend to build nests in stuff so I decide to get rid of him. I pull out the CO2 pistol and fire 2 complete reloads at him. That $14 walmart special is so inaccurate it is absurd. (I was rolling very bad to-hit dice). No wonder it took me a month to hit that gigantic snake last summer.
So I break out this broadsword. I know, you are wondering why I keep a Frazetta broadsword around. Well clearly for situations like this. This darn mouse still refused to leave, and I am hacking at him as he runs around. He eventually left after I managed to nip his tail. That is the toughest mouse I ever saw. He was fearless. I would take my cat out to battle him but the cat becomes frightened upon leaving the house and has no claws. Why do I even keep him around?
So while you might think running a little model shop is all fun and games- it is not. There is some grim work at times.
