After on and off dicking with this drill press table for what, two weeks now, enough is enough.
I put four applications of J.B. Weld on it and sanded it all back down, put a toilet paper roll covered with wax paper in the hole in the middle to fill in a huge gouge and then sanded THAT down, put yet another skin coat on it and sanded that down too, there is still a minor blemish around one edge of the hole and exactly who the fuck cares.
I finished it off yesterday morning before we left for my wife’s parents place and called it good.
Dammit, I thought I got my shoes out of the way, apparently not.
As a commenter so succinctly pointed out, I’m not running air bearings on the damn thing.
Works for me.
I have a couple of new items I got for Christmas that I haven’t even had time to open the boxes on yet that I want to play with that are related so whenever I get a fucking moment to myself, I’ll go out and try them out and let you know what I think.
I don’t know about anyone else but I am quite happy that the Christmas bullshit is done with again.
I have been off since Friday and have had Christmas related shit to do every fucking day since. I was basically gone all damn day yesterday until ten at night.
That means I didn’t get fuck all done except finish that plate.
On the bright side, I only have to work two days and then I am off for five more, without using any vacation time.
Maybe after Thursday I can actually get some shit straightened around finally.
The garage is full of cardboard boxes and Christmas related crap plus a bunch of tooling and shit related to this little project that all needs to be cleaned up and put away so I can get that miserable sonofabitch Sprite back in there.
It never ends.
