Archimedes Spiral Drill ( and a fractured rib)
Tony had an appointment at the hospital yesterday and discovered that he does in fact have a broken rib. He was told at both previous hospital visits that he hadn't any sign of a fractured rib. The rib fracture was clearly written in his notes and so we have no idea why he wasn't told this. No wonder he has been in agony with chest pains. He now has two weeks off work so I need to make myself a nurses uniform :-) maybe not..... On a crafting note I have ordered an Archimedes spiral drill from ebay and am waiting for it to arrive. I want to see if it will be strong enough to drill through shells. If it is strong enough I will buy a few more to use when I deliver crafting sessions. I am sure we all have a tin full of pretty seashells that we picked up on the beach..... go on tell me that you do. If the drill is strong enough it would be nice to run some little workshops to use up those shells. My dremel isn't PAT tested and neither is my big drill. I am a little wary of using a an 'egg beater' type of drill in case someone nips their fingers..... can't be too careful in these days of 'blame and sue'. The Archimedes spiral drill will be very useful if it proves strong enough. Hopefully it will arrive today and I will try it out on some of my shell collection.
