In good news, I have been tossing around ideas for a set of body modification and ritual themed rings, with the first couple that I’ll probably get finished being a pair of suspension themed rings, one with a classic Mustad-style hook, and the other with a Gilson-style safety hook. Pretty happy with how both of them are going. The only major design element I see changing still is that I haven’t put any effort yet into making sure the knots are correct… probably shouldn’t skimp on that since it’s not really any harder to do it right than to fake it. Other than that it’s just a matter of cleaning it up, making it all look nice and perfect, and then the normal steps of making a mold and casting them in metal.
The other good news is that I got a new throttle in the mail today for my electric trike project and now the motors are turning, so I can finally get to putting that “super wheelchair” together. Should be a lot of fun. My good/bad news is that after several engine swaps my truck isn’t missing any of the AC components — because goddamn is this looking to be one hell of a hot summer — but a lot of them are rusted out and dead, so it’s going to have air conditioning shortly, but it won’t be as cheap as simply charging up the system. My bad news is that my daughter’s health is not improving with medication so I think she’s going to miss the remainder of the school year and come back up here sooner than expected (at least that part of it is good, in a way) for medical care.
