I own 4 different tools that require a drill bit chuck key (large drill press, small drill press, lathe and a hammer drill). Everyone requires its own chuck key and none of them are interchangeable. Couldn’t we have some standardization on chuck keys?

The rush to get projects done for Christmas is finally over, family demands are back to normal, I have a little bit of time to get out into the shop and do some cleanup… But where’s the floor? I know there is a floor in here SOMEWHERE… Let’s see, those long shavings would drop right down into the dust bin instead of going on to the DC right? Sure… You get where I am going with this? I finally had the time to do some cleanup after the mess of projects ...

Pet Peeve - 1

12-30-2009 06:19 PM by richgreer | 16 comments »

Whenever you buy a router, table saw, lathe and some other tools, it is common to get one or more wrenches for changing bits, blades, chucks, ... These tend to be some of the cheapest most poorly made wrenches I have ever seen. The wrenches that came with my lathe literally spread further open when I applied moderate pressure, making them completely worthless. I had to spend over an hour with a Dremel grinder to correct problems with the wrench that removes my arbor nut on my table s...

Ouch! That Smarts, I mean it still Smarts!!!! Even though I had surgery on Monday, my fingers still hurts like helk. Surgery was successful, they had a hard time waking me up, I have sleep apnea, so they were shaking me and hollering at me to wake up every 5 minutes. So I was in Post Op a little longer than normal but thats OK. I eventually got home and had some coffee and I was good to go. Today I get to see the Dr’s handywork, I have not seen my hand since my wife changed the dressing...

boat build #3: starting to take shape

Time to start glassing the inside of the bottom. Called on my wife to help out. She mixed and I poured and spread the epoxy. Sometimes we both had to spread to get it all out before it kicked off. As you can see in that last pic it was getting dark. Spent alot of late nights working under the lights. Time to flip the bottom over and lift it up to start putting in the framing of the hull. Here is the transom already done and ready to be fit on the jig. Here ...
