Cat chess or is it checkers?
Sunny and it would be warm today had the wind not blown. I worked on sharpening saw blades today as I found my saw vice. I had bought a new blade for the buck saw and found that it would hardly cut, of course it turned out to be Chinese junk that appeared to be made out of a metal shipping strap that had been punched out in the shape of a saw and then the points had been hardened. It had never been sharpened only stamped out in a sharp shape. I tried to sharpen it but they had the points so hard that it was like trying to sharpen a file so I put an old blade in the vice and it sharpened like a knife. Had I been able to find the vice I wouldn't have bought the new worthless blade, oh well, maybe I can use it to cut something soft.
I came out to buy chicken feed and almost bought a new file but noticed it was made in China so I will look for something else on another trip. Going back home and get ready to feed the animals in awhile.
