I stuck the wheel design up on Thingiverse. MecanumWheel by ceptimus - Thingiverse

I've not actually printed one myself yet - maybe someone on Thingiverse will beat me to it and do the testing & development work so I don't have to. :hammock:

I got a half a yard of topsoil today and started spreading it on some of the flower beds, my wife wants to get tanbark and spread out to control the weeds.

I finished the flower beds and spread some more topsoil, I will spread a little more later. I Finished lining it with stones that I had gathered. My daughter-in-law asked me where I got the stones, I asked her if she had ever been on my property, It's almost all stones. When you dig a hole you get a big pile of rocks and a small pile of soil.

How very biblical of you.

I'm getting good at the gathering together part, but when I try to throw stones away, they just land on other stones.

Right now I'm working on a clamping bench for gluing up model ship hulls. It's 10' by 2' on the working surface but will be a little wider to accommodate the mechanism. The last one had lines down the front and I had to slide the hull in from the end to clamp it, this one will be open along the front and will have the mechanism in the back. I'll use lines and pulleys to pull the clamp bars down and press the parts together.

Just finished my clamping bench, now I'll be able to glue up hulls for model ships, as soon as I get a band saw to cut out the layers. I have used the "bread and butter" method of building hulls before, and it seemed to work out well. I tried to post a photo, but it isn't working for me.
