Why do knees not come with zerk fittings so you can lube them up. After two days of moving rock, my knees feel like hell and I swear I can just about hear them crunch. They seem to have gone to hell once I hit 50. Good part is the back yard is just about done. A few extra bags here and there to thicken it up a bit. The front yard, I intend on backing the truck up to each location and offloading what is needed at each spot.

After fussing with the rock this morning, I spent the rest of the day messing about in the garage. I installed digitals to the x and y axis on the mill. I am making a bracket to mount one on the z axis. Just ran out of time for the day. Have a plan for where and how to install. Made a couple of the bracket parts and installed them. Just have to machine a couple more pieces. want to make a small enclosure for the small units as well. Not as accurate as the high end ones, but for home use, they will be more than adequate. Suppose to be accurate to within .002 per six inches of travel.

Not ready to go back to work. It has been great working outdoors for a few days. Could use a few more days off, but that would just lead to wanting a few more.
