Got a new thing to play with in my office. I think this is now the coolest thing I own.
Ok, not car related, but definitely “playing with power tools and exotic materials”, which is still fairly oppo. I’ve been married for 20 years now, and somehow along the way lost the body of a 20somthing and ended up with the somewhat expanded body of s 40something. As a result of this, my wedding ring doesn’t…
Earlier this year I came into some various aircraft gauges and asked Oppo for some advice on what to do with them. Besides an altimeter currently sitting on my desk as a conversation piece, I still haven’t gotten around to doing anything cool with them. Now another bit of aircraft has come to me and is currently on my…
I was looking for my 10 mil ratcheting wrench today when I remembered these guys were way in the back of the wrench drawer. I had assumed they were from my father’s beloved ‘79 300D, but it looks like it’s probably a combination of several kits due to size overlap and different manufacturers. This is a real…
...twxt this guy about his inpack wrench.
Why must you show me things I really want (but have no real use for) when I DON’T have disposable cash! Just booked flights, hotel and theme park tickets for a week in Orlando next month, so the fun fund is empty. Yeah, yeah, the memories will last a lifetime, but I can’t ride the memories through the mud!
Eventually the ad will come down, so text cap below.
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.
