    Little Gloat

    My day is going to heck in a handbasket, so I thought I'd post a little gloat from my trip to LV.

    I bought several casters, but I'm only showing 2. I also bought several pipe clamps, but only showing one. I honestly don't remember why I felt compelled to get those plug cutters....isn't that absurd? Just a quick photo to cheer myself.

    Well, just seeing those cheered my day too. I think you'll find those plug cutters will come in handy sometime and you'll be glad you bought them.

    You never know what will catch your eye when you go tool shopping. In the back of your head you're probably thinking you'll have some screw holes that will need to be covered up, and there you go, you'll have the right tool for the job to complete your project. That is assuming you can find the plug cutters when the need arises...

    I see a measuring tool that is commonly used on spinny projects. Have you fallen into the vortex?

    Tapered plug cutters are really really useful. They are good for covering a variety of misteaks.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.

    Well, in that case, it was a good purchase because misteaks are my strong suit.

    Mohammad, no, I just wanted some decent calipers. No vortex yet....

    Don't worry Cynthia. The Vortex is patient. It just quietly sits there waiting for you to make a little twitch in it's direction. Then it becomes a Venetian Fly Trap and "BAM" you are in the vortex. Sleep well tonight thinking about that.

    Enjoy,
