I just went out in the garage and in about an hour or less, found the 1 inch angle iron, dug it out and unwrapped the plastic wrap off of it, measured what I needed for length, got lucky and only had to cut it exactly in half for what I needed, measured again, marked, cut, drilled, dug out fasteners and installed it on the band saw to stiffen up the stand.
Under an hour, because, POWER TOOLS!
I LOVE POWER TOOLS!
The actual cutting and drilling part probably only took ten minutes!
It’s a kind of independence and freedom the likes of which driving alone for the very first time comes to mind.
I am so grateful that I have these tools now, it makes doing things so much easier and faster it almost defies belief.
I pretty much have almost every thing I have been wanting now except one little item
That one is going to take some doing but Lord willing, eventually one will be sitting on a stand out there before I get too damn old to use it.
A mini mill.
I hammered the wife about one a couple of years ago, like starting the minute I opened up that mini lathe on Christmas day.
I’m going to start in again too. For once in my adult life I may just have something good to say about Christmas next year.
In the mean time I have plenty enough out there to keep me busy now and I LIKE IT!!
