Shars 5C collet indexer

Shars 5C collet indexer

This isn't a review, its a complaint. One thing I detest is buying a tool and then having to fix the tool before I can even use it. That's just plain B.S. The tool in question is a 5C collet indexer from Shars. I had been looking at indexers for a while since I need to cut some gears and the rotary table can be a pain to use. Instead I can use the laser cutter to precisely cut whatever tooth count I need and 'spindex' my way around. I bought the one…Read more …
Is it 2017 already?

Is it 2017 already?

Yup, I have been busy and a bit slow posting things. there are too many things in the works to hit all of them but I'll give you the highlights. - I'm back to playing the bagpipes with the band again. Played the Sonora Celtic Faire this last weekend and I need to practice because picking up the pipes again showed how much I haven't retained. - The laser cutter is working well. It's basically stock except for the addition of an ammeter to see what current the tube is running at. -…Read more …
New toy….. I mean tool…..

New toy….. I mean tool…..

I'm still trying to figure out which it is. Maybe it's both... a grown-up toy that's a cool tool. I have to admit I was pretty excited when the delivery guy pulled up out front and rolled up the door on the trailer. I took the day off just to make sure I was there. We got it off the truck and stashed it in the garage and that is when I realized... That this is a lot bigger than I thought it would be. Yeah, 4 feet long and over 2 feet…Read more …

I am not dead…. or lost….

I've just been busy. No property yet, but still in the search mode since I feel like time is getting shorter to get my butt on a parcel and get it set up the way I want it. I will be taking a road trip in the near future, out hunting for new road and places to see, maybe bring back a few new antiques to restore. I won't post anything on here while I'm on the trip since I don't know who¬† is reading this, and I don't want them knowing when…Read more …

WTF Wednesday

I woke up groggy and not feeling well this morning. I don't understand cause I slept like the dead last night, but my Surge watch says I was awake 22 times last night. And then I saw this.... WTF is that on my ankle? I mean sure, I've woke up with some weird marks on me before but it's usually due to the girlfriend of choice at the time. I live alone, have a good camera system around the house, and a good alarm system but occasionally I wake up not feeling well…Read more …

So here it is

Yeah, so why not start a blog? Everyone else has them, kinda like when everyone joined MySpice..or MySpot.. or something. I figure I have a few things to say, some nice and some not. Fuck it, this is my playground, if you dont like what you see then go find another place to spend your time. Don't expect regular updates, I'm not that focused and I dont want to be. I imagine this will be a random place to just show some projects, vent on politics, and whatever else I feel like.  …Read more …
