Okay so here’s the deal. I’ve been looking for my hole saws pretty much everywhere, for the better part of 2 weeks. I am building a custom light for photography / videography, and I need to bore some holes for light sockets.
So I’ve been tearing through the shop, under workbenches, behind the lathe, in the toolbox drawers, in totes, on top of cabinets, in cabinets, you name it, I’ve looked, with one exception, but those drawers aren’t done yet, how can they be there?
Sure enough, I was napping yesterday afternoon and woke up with a sudden A ha! moment… I went out to the shop and pulled the unfinished drawers from the miter saw cabinet…
Lo and behold! My hole saws!
This proves 2 things to me without a doubt.
#1. I need to get up off my butt and finish those drawers. And… #2. Just because a drawer isn’t finished, doesn’t mean I didn’t stash stuff there.
So in my cleaning, / purging stuff from car trunks, digging through drawers etc… I have found in the last week…
#1. Harbor Freight BiMetal hole saw sets, small, and large. #2. Harbor Freight HSS hole saw sets, small and large. about 75% trashed, but they were $5.00 a set when I bought them and I was able to cut 5” holes in Hardi Panel with them, so I am NOT complaining. #3. Tin Snips #4. 3 pairs is slip joint pliers. #5. C clamps. #6. My Stanley screwdriver set. The noce once with the ergonomic grip handles. #7. My Crafstman 1/4” drive SAE socket set. #8. My Blue Point multimeter. #9. My Blue Point 1/2” breaker bar.
I spent a little bit of time last night cleaning off the lathe, rolling up my anti fatigue mats, cleaning them off, and putting them on the lathe to keep them out of the way for now.
I still need to get that Hardi Panel OUT of my shop. But that will come later.
More to come!
