  1. Reno's Extreme

    That would be a nice return. I hope that will be the case.
  2. Reno's Extreme

    Good to hear from you again! Does it still have tube and knob wiring, or was it ever wired? I assume it was at some point. Plaster and lath is a joy to demo as well. Good luck with all the renovations. Guessing a mask company is benefiting from your efforts.
  3. Baby!

    Best wishes!

    Do not put too much grease in the gearbox. Too much is as bad as not enough. Plowing through quality grease at high speed will put undue stress on things and eat up power. Learned the hard way many years ago.
  5. Butt ugly

    Interesting. Only practical for fairly local work. Would be good on a farm/ranch, etc.

    If you are willing to put in a lot of effort and time, use a hand held tamper. I used to do stonework and the only time we would use a hand tamper is in a small spot that was impossible to use our powered one. Lot of work to do it right. Base is the most important thing!!!
  7. Hello Everyone!

    Used to be simple to get a tour of our local nuclear power plant, but not anymore. Back in the day you could drive in the gate, past the cooling tower, and just look around. Took making prior arrangements to actually get inside, but was not hard. Nowadays it is like a fortress.
  8. Wiha Ultra Driver $20 from KC Tool

    No surprise they are out of stock! Thanks.
  9. My small shop

    Great job on everything. Not all of us can afford big yellow and red, but we manage anyway!
  10. Can I replace EU plugin with USA plugin?

    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..
  11. OCD screwdriver organization question

    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.

    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

    Glad there were no serious injuries.
  14. CNC in The Works

    Looks good so far. Glad you ran into your friend.
  15. Robots

    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.
