Thatís interesting? In Calif, we are shelter in place, but still can do mail, go grocery shopping, take a walk, get meds, order and get take food, go frigging nuts with cabin fever. Sure is quiet around hereÖno traffic noiseÖkinda creepy.

For straight forward fabricating in metal or wood, 20 minutes a part gives an incredibly accurate time estimate. BUT when precision machining enters into it I never give a time quote, only an estimate. All in all you came out on top Shawn. Just have to think of the experience you gained.
Ray, I was happy to help, have to say a bit of a learning experience for me too. Had never cut a thread that coarse before. Found out you couldn't get to full depth in one pass, had to step over and rough the width then finish the bottom of the V

That seems strange. Some people get meds via delivery services.
UPS is open for business in the USA.

But, it's strange.... Huh... Seems, empty.

That gave a chuckle! I havenít seen the top of my work bench either since built. Itís like a magnetic crap collector. About 22 feet long and only 6 sq/inís for a work areaÖjeez :41:

yea, I think we all try to keep it clean. Oh what the hell am I talking about... I fail too.


But I work hard to clean it up, but I never seem to get there... and when I do get it somewhat clean it takes no time at all to become cluttered.


I always seem to work in the clutter.


For WOODWORKING I do clean up and work. I can't build while it's getting all dinged up.  But my other benches are total disasters.


FYI listening to a new Bob Dylan song, saw it on google news.

Lol, all you guys suck then. It bothers me immensely when my bench and floors are a mess. I cant stand walking on crud (hence the mats), and I can't stand spending 25 minutes looking for the tool I JUST HAD instead of working. Every single day I make the guys clean up (after me 😁) on the job sites. I don't like things being a mess for me and I don't like leaving a mess for the home owner.

My bench doesn't always look this tidy... I wanted to work on my tool post riser but the garage was covered in sawdust from the screw machine testing. I don't like sawdust on my benches where I'm trying to work. Same goes for the woodshop. No sawdust on the benches... Air gun or vacuum is always within arm's reach. Frankly, I don't like messes at all... They stress me out. It's not an efficient way to work. Especially if it's a small space. I'm certainly no neat freak, you've all seen pictures of my garage in true form.....

I'm currently redoing a bathroom/shower. It's a fairly small foot print. Just finished framing, electrical, insulated and bagged now. But yesterday Matt (our young guy) was here (wayyy too small a room for two guys) and he had crap alllllllllllll over the place... He's still pretty new. I haven't moulded that clay fully yet...
I spent about 6 minutes tripping over everything conceivable while trying to pull a circuit before I just dropped everything I was holding, left the room, told him to stop what he was doing and tidy up his stuff, and I wasn't coming back until it was tidy.
I left, had a (liquid) lunch to calm my nerves and take a breather and went back. He was struggling with some tricky drywall, I walked him through it and we had a pleasant rest of the day.
Our guys know how I work, know I'm short fused, very direct to the point when I speak to them, they know I expect a lot... But not more than I am capable of, myself. I would never expect something of someone I wouldn't expect of myself. But I'm also the first to buy lunch, buy Friday summer beers (if work site reasonable), first to compliment a good job - but also first to correct or educate when things aren't working... someone people need to struggle for a bit to recognise a problem, but time is important. If the struggling is taking too long, I will interject. No one benefits when someone gets wrapped up in their frustration and goes blind to their situation.

I digress... Off topic.

Ya. I cleaned my bench.
The tool post riser is coming along. Need to make some t-nuts for my crossslide.
(No, nothing is fastened down or tightened yet, dry fit. Hence the floating tool post.) The peg up top is for mounting an indicator. I'll make a clamp that fits there.

 very Renzetti like.
Looks good. You going to pin the toolpost?


Or put an L bracket around it.

I have a serious problem with tidyness, I blame my working career.
I always had numerous flunkies tidying up after me so never learned how to be tidy  :03: At least thats my excuse.
