Going to pick this “project” up on Tuesday. This is not the first, or second, or even third motorized conveyance I have acquired in such a condition. I’m clearly a self loather.
Spotted this sweet Geo Metro today. Must be some head of state in town today.
Got a chuckle out of this on an otherwise dull Tuesday morning.
Someone asked me the other day how long my bearing in a bearing in a bearing in a bearing in a bearing would spin. Turns out, it’s a long time. Don’t worry, most of it is fast forwarded.
I was cleaning out one of my desk drawers, and I found something I had completely forgotten about. I could have totally been the one to start the fidgit spinner craze, LOL. I put this together several years ago out of boredom, and then came to the realization many people have come to recently. It’s entertaining to…
The building next to my office was a furniture store for as long as I can remember. They closed down several years ago, and the building has been vacant ever since. Well, a few weeks ago, there started being a lot of activity over there. Working, painting, all kinds of activity, and we were eagerly awaiting signage to…
Sounds like it could be a fun project, and the price is right. Alas, I have no trailer or anything to tow with (and my wife would skin me alive).
My office was nearly empty before noon today. I was really enjoying the peace and quiet, but my boss finally insisted I go home (I’m not an hourly employee, he was just being nice) around 1:30. A few hours in an empty house meant I could spend some time starting on a project I’ve needed to address for a while.
2 hours away? Under $5k? OMG, it’s taking everything I have to not go get in my car RIGHT NOW!
I like my home workshop. I like tools. I like old stuff. All of those likes have now converged, and I’m the proud new owner of a 60+ year old lathe.
My recently acquired 1973 Honda CT90 shrugged off 42 years of storage over the weekend and coughed back into life. Today, being the first sunny day this week, it carried me successfully to work. We’re talking about a bike that has not been on the road since 1975.
I evidently have a thing for old, small displacement Hondas.
For anyone who saw this post a couple of weeks ago:
Trying to get to the bottom of some of the issues I’ve outlined here:
Ok, let me lay out the situation, and y’all let me know what you think.
A friend of mine used to work for an aircraft repair facility as a parts manager. Over the years, she accumulated a collection of spares, demos and non-functional/not reliably functional items pulled for replacement. Last night, she sent me home with these with orders to do something cool with them. So, what are your…
With a seemingly constant supply of grubby bits that need cleaning for various projects, I sucked it up last week and ordered myself an ultrasonic cleaner. It’s faster, cheaper and less of a hassle than using buckets of Chem-Dip and cans of brake cleaner. I have to say, this is one of my new favorite things. Just look…
In case someone actually buys them and the ad gets taken down...
My daughter is 6 months away from turning 16, and my wife and I are considering getting her a car. We both work, so our cars won’t be available to her, and she goes to a specialty high school for the performing arts, which means her day starts by getting on the bus at 6:45 in the morning and not returning home until…
