Topic tags/keywords: tip magnet

Yes, I did catch what I was after! :-)

I hate it when I drop something down into the bowels of my table saw. Luckily this time it just so happened that I had a 36 inch piece of flat bar and some magnets. Fished that washer right out of there. :-)

I bought one of those telescopic pens with a strong magnet on the great for when I drop the arbor nut into the sawdust in my saw!

I thought you were gonna tell us you caught a butt load of bass…...I go fishing all the time, but all I can catch is old beer cans, worn out lures, and old rusted washers…...Where’s the bass…..?

“Where’s the bass…..?”

Probably a little sea sick right about now. A storm blew over Lake Livingston, Tx a little while ago. A friend is camping there and they had to scramble to get their stuff put up before it blew through. It has now reached the Houston area – lots of power outages, thunder and lightening.

I guess this is our first “front” of the season.

Note: I think you are fishing too deep! :-)

“you got lucky”

David, in the past, I have had to move stuff around to get the side door open and then dig around in the bottom of the cabinet. It just so happened I had that piece of flat bar from a project I can’t even recall so I stuck a magnet on it…and VOILA! Nothing to it.

Ahh yes. The deep abyss of the table saw bowels. I think we’ve all experienced that at least once..
