I have packed up all my Christmas decorations
and have moved on to valentines. My first new
item is a Paisley Heart plaque and I am really
thrilled with it. It actually was my husband's
idea and a good one at that. And he says he
isn't artistic. Hopefully I can come up with
a couple more for this year's holiday.


  1. Thanks, Gayle. I have had more responses to this carving than any I have ever done! What
    a surprise.

  2. Self-excited vibrations happen throughout roughing and finishing operations. This doesn't mean that if much less chip is eliminated, self-excited vibrations are averted. For example, self-excited vibrations might happen when removing a chip of small depth on a vertical lathe (0.three mm) with a large load travel underwear of the ram on the tool tip . Undesirable and dangerous aspect effects} of time-varying loading may be vibrations, and thus additionally the accompanying phenomenon of these vibrations—noise of the machine or its parts. Vibrations deteriorate the working conditions of the working course of, deteriorate the standard of machined floor, and cut back the tool edge life.
