I'm still here! Honey-Do's, ya know!
I've started burning bits on particleboard now, and the nice Onsrud's (that I still have) are put away for now. Wifey suddenly pictures trim on...everything.
I honestly WISH I never said anything about crown molding. If you're looking for a great reason to end it all, just get ONE room done, and then listen to how much the REST "looks plain now".
The ShopBot IS a joy to own. But it will make you feel like an idiot in danger in the process, like that SMART pretty girl you dated -once.
Bits go "CLINK" and try to take your ear off. Material from a hole center gets lodged on the bit, turning the whole machine into a vibrating meatsaw.
I've learned to save my last chunk of any material, for fear of not having it handy on a whim's notice. I think it's bad luck anyway, like using the "last match".
An old man in a hardware store once told me, "with every honey-do, buy a toy". Seemed like great advice at the time. Try wiggling out of fixing screens NOW. I got every implement for doing so...please don't look at my screens. It's not what I "do".
The scroll saw turned out to be its own sickness. I cut up anything that would go onto it. I cut out over 100, 1919 bodies on it! My right fingertip became dead, like "StoneFinger" himself. Nobody got this joke, especially my doctor.
But he DID write a note to my boss (Wifey!), recommending a "shop robot".
Doctor's Orders, honey.
