Aye. I just realised that the kana in the clue, むいてうなって = 剥いて唸って = bear (its) teeth and growl
This freaking よょ thing is driving me mad.
Come to think of it, I might have come across that word recently
One letter left. And you’d think the fact that it’s also the last letter in the magic secret word would give it away, but I’ve not nothing there either.
Edit: Ok, I think I’ve got it. ひとくぎり is a word, so the answer is クギリ
Makes the secret magic word ダイクドウグ = carpentry tools
Well, I was going to say.
得 as in profit, in case you’re selling and they pay you more the more you sell.
Also saw 大工道具
Had seen 一区切り before, but since it seems that it’s not break as in 休み, but end; break as in:
I thought it wouldn’t be it.
Yeah, but when I stuck ようやく仕事 into Google, I got a whole bunch of results that ended with が終わりました and other similar verbs.
And done. Answers concur. It’s amazing how the rest just fell into place once we had 1-across…
Pondering uploading the next puzzle, though we’d have to finish it by Monday if we want the answers before I go on holidays.
Sounds good to me.
So, 6➝ is the sound of a steam engine, but steam engine doesn’t fit.
24➝ could be カリ 借り debt.
28➝ could be キュウカ 休暇 holiday.

12-down - タテガミ
35 across? .-.
It’s 35-down, but why タケ?
35 down is 3 syllables. It’s probably 30 across.
If you write on it, you can’t eat it?
Oh, right. I knew that.
I feel like it’s more likely to be 36 than 30. Much easier to mistype a 6 for a 5. Still not too sure why it’s タケ, though.
Apparently, bamboo traps are a thing.
That one is already answered.
25-down マツノキ (?)
29-down ノリモノ (?)
Oh, hey. Didn’t notice you’d added more to this post.
キカンシャ. To use the technical terms, it’s a steam locomotive.
Yeah, I see why you’re not too confident on those.
Gah, I was trying to find a word that fitted on the front of the ones in the clue…
I’m down with ノリモノ, but if マツノキ is also correct, then 23-across becomes ？ノノムシ…
Actually, come to think of it, I think 25-across is ナマアセ
Edit: Ah. 23-across is ハラノムシ
Change of plans: 25-across is ヒヤアセ
Which means 25-down is ヒイラギ
Which makes 13-across テンサイ, which I only kinda sorta get
Pretty sure 18-down is ジメン, which makes 19-across メジ, which does work.
Think 3-across is シボ
Edit: And now that I’ve finished uploading, 4-across is ヨウテン. Uh… or ユウテン. And I kinda want to say 15-down is テッパン, because that’s the name of the Asadora I’ve been translating, but I really don’t think those are musical instruments, so it’s probably not that. It’ll be something similar, mind.
