The Shaving Horse

Good info on the shaving horse.  Guess I will try building one of the dumbhead type sometime soon.  The one I have now is the English two post type but limits the size of the stock I can shave or work.

Wallpaper Paste
* 1 cup flour (wheat, corn, or rice)
* 3 teaspoons alum
* water
* 10 drops oil of cloves (natural preservative)

Combine the flour and alum in a double boiler. (If you don’t have a double boiler, set a smaller pan inside a bigger one that contains enough water that can be brought to a boil without overflowing). Add enough water to make a consistency of heavy cream; stir until blended. Heat, stirring constantly, until the mixture has thickened to a gravy texture. Let cool. Stir in the clove oil. Pour into a glass jar with a screw top. Apply with a glue brush.
Makes 1 cup
Shelf Life: 2 weeks refrigerated

Have made and used it before.  Long time ago.

As he describes it, from a user’s point of view, Parakey is “a Web operating system that can do everything an OS can do.” Translation: it makes it really easy to store your stuff and share it with the world. Most or all of Parakey will be open source, under a license similar to Firefox’s.

Could change a lot of things.  Quite a lot of things.
