    driving near 33rd st

    I was coming home driving the BQE and saw the 38th st exit sign.
    Should I or shouldnt I?
    Eh, parking is tough, but what the hec. Its raining out, Im not in a rush.
    I got a spot 15 feet from Mr. Moscowitzs' door.
    No elevator though, and my myasthenic legs had to drag my fat body up 5 flights. Junkies dont care about what it takes to get a fix.

    Got my spokeshave. finally. questioned him about drawknife vs spokeshave use.
    Asked him about a flush saw, he didnt have any.
    Then got into the orbital sander by festool.
    He said let me get you one to feel.
    The 6 inch is a comfortable machine, but its hefty weight would be an issue for my hand muscles weakness, so I knew Id be putting it down every 2 minutes to rest.

    Didnt buy it. I used my brain, resisted the temptation.



    ofcourse, I did buy the 5 inch orbital, that one fit in my hand like a glove, and was much lighter.
    then I had to get 200 discs so I can go sanding crazy.

    Oh, yeah, and while Im here, got any norton stones, like a set? a flattening stone?

    Then I was tapped, just had enough money for some blacktop paint left and lunch. Stopped at New park pizzeria in queens, the best pizza on earth, ever, untouchable, maybe thats why theyve been there for 50 years.

    got up today and assembled a chair at 7 am, so overall a nice day.

    A truly great day. You may have even inspired me to get out in the shop and make something!

    This Moscowitz fella sounds like a shady character if you ask me. The man obviously has no scruples, what with selling tool crack to hopeless addicts like you. Taking advantage of poor defenseless middle-aged guys who've lost all self-control. It's a shame, I tell you. A cryin' shame.

    Vaughn you make me man give up the spinny stuff and start a comedy act you would pack the place out.

    Allen you made me hungry. Your post was sort of like reading a Lawrence sanders novel. Detectives/investigators in New York, except you would be a tool investigator.

    Wish you well with the sander. There is no question as to the merits of good tools.
    cheers

    yeah, he is some character. First of all, he has everything out on hooks on the wall, saws, chisels, and if you dont see it, this guy moves fast, and he brings it out, opens it up, says try it out. He has a workbench set up with wood, and then to top it all off, the nerve of this guy, he tells me if Im not happy with anything after using it just bring it back!
    unbelievable.

    Im happy his place is just a bit of a trip for me with all the construction, otherwise it might be dangerous.
