So, there you are . . working in the garage . . on projects for “she who must be obeyed”.
It’s Texas. Even in October it’s HOT! You have a couple fans moving the air.
As you pick up the five foot long panel that is to become the three year old granddaughter’s height marking board and swing it around to sand the other end, you collide with and knock over the “Made in China” oscillating air mover.
Bang. Plastic shards skitter across the floor.
What do you do? Shut down progress on the important project list . . . or be creative? Growing up in the 50’s, I heard many times from parents who had lived through the Depression, “use it, re-use it, don’t replace it, wear it out, ”.
So, a couple scraps of oak, thirty minutes and the coolerator is active again.
Since the oscillator mechanism was broken, the fan doesn’t swing side to side but, it does run fine. AND, it’s even quieter!!
Back to work pops!!
QUICK . . pass me another clamp!!
