I was reading OKALBERT’s entry “My Workshop #12: We’re making progress on the work bench now” (nice bench!) and he mentions losing time. I’m sure he’s not the only one who does that, as I find myself in that state almost everyday.
I’ve been thinking about including a clock in my shop, however part of my enjoyment is NOT knowing the time. If it gets too late my loving wife gently reminds me, and if I’m on a schedule I set an alarm on my cell phone.
On the other hand, there are times when I find knowing an AMOUNT of time is necessary (i.e. glue ups). I usually get around this by working some other portion of a project and just assume that an adequate time period has elapsed.
Ok, just rambling, thanks for listening!
