  1. Great job on everything. Not all of us can afford big yellow and red, but we manage anyway!
  2. Most of Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, etc. uses 230 volt 50 Hz with the two pin plug. So if that's what it was designed for, you won't be able to just put a US 120 volt plug on. Hopefully the seller was on the level and it is designed for US specs..
  3. What ever would make them easier to access/identify for you. We all have our quirks, but only you know how you think. So - Visualize them mounted various ways and use the way that feels most satisfactory to you. Personally, I like them separated by tip type and in ascending order of size, but that's just me. Good luck.
  4. Over the years I have used wood and metal. I tend to agree that the wood takes up a lot more valuable space than you would think. Custom wood or metal makes for easier access, but if your needs change, can become a pain to live with or redo. A good flexible metal system would be my choice. $0.02
  5. Glad there were no serious injuries.
  6. Looks good so far. Glad you ran into your friend.
  7. Granted, combat robots save whoever deploys them lives, but any battlefield is about somebody dying. I do not blame the technology. As has been said "Guns don't kill people, people kill people." Guns, nuclear energy, ammonium nitrate and diesel fuel, etc. are just what someone chooses to make them. I just don't understand who these companies are planning on selling to when most people are replaced by automation. Used to work as a CNC tech at Parker-Hannifin (granted at least one machine still used core memory, but most were new) and was familiar with sabotage and paranoia from a few. The new Luddites I guess. Can't put the genie back in the bottle, just hope humanity as a whole is more compassionate than I give it credit for. Hard to believe, but I'm not a bitter old curmudgeon. Blessings to all.
  8. Blinded by the price. Ouch!
  9. Mother Nature can be lovely, but she is always subject to vicissitude. No serious damage I hope.
  10. Wally World (Walmart) has been the undoing of many businesses. It has been ruthlessly efficient, like Rockefeller's Standard Oil, but not always good for the country in the long run. I guess when we are all replaced by robots, they may feel the pinch, but figure they will get in on the robot revolution and by-pass us anyway. C'est la vie!
  11. Clever! (as usual for you)
  12. Guess it is deader than I thought!
  13. Hammer Time! Congrats!
  14. I use various Avery stickers and cover them with good clear packing tape.
  15. Have to agree that it is asking a lot to go from 1/4 to 1/2. May I ask why that is necessary?
