    Joe, I'm in the small shop boat as well. I never refer to my tools as "toys" in the presence of a female. Although they are absolutely toys. My wife is pretty understanding of my primal need to build. Occasionally, she may balk a bit. I usually counter that I understand her not being used to a man's primal need build and have quality equipment to do so due to her ex having a vagina. Yes this a dangerous game I play, but accurate as I see it. As far as the "verbal ping-pong".....I think Ryan may be in the lead at this time. I enjoy this forum and the banter between some cool cats here.

    Old Jupitor, Like my wife says if every something happens to me there is going to be one big yard sale, I made that one to put in my Mini Machine Shop (MMS) is what my wife calls it, it is a storage room that is connected to the carport that is connected to the house, kinda nice only have to walk through the carport and into the shop, its only 8'X24' only have small machines in it, so space is at a premium, in the big shop is where the big toys are, won't even admit how many toys are in there.
    If you go by a Lawn Mower shop and if they sell Scags that is what that material comes from, they are really nice, I think the shop has to pay $15.00 if they don't return the pallet, I get them for free but if you would ask in your local area could probably get one at that cost of they might give you several if you beg, bark, role over and if all fails cry.
    Now you fellow need to get along, this verbal ping pong is fun to read and I am keeping track of who has the verbal advantage, will announce the winner later.

    Yeah Jupiter, go finish that shear stand and quit giving us other slackers a hard time. You too Joe! Go build some more stuff so as I can get ideas and claim them as my own and impress my buddies. Chop chop, boys!

    Joe, it looks like Ryan and Ken got dibs on your tools already, so what I want to know is where you got that "steal tubing" so I can steal a bunch for myself!! (Doh, sorry, that was pretty bad, LOL).

    Hey, you know, what might go well with your portable bandsaw that can be mounted to a bench is one of those little old fixtures that you clip a big drillmotor into to make it into a drillpress. For that matter, there are those little folding tables with an open slot in the middle so you can fix a skilsaw up underneath it to make a table saw. Maybe we could figure out an entire shop-full of such stuff.

    Or maybe I could quit making stupid posts like this one and get my butt in gear and do something productive.

    Joe....that's some funny stuff. My Dad has said that my Mom was the smartest of the litter too. Sadly her sisters set the bar pretty low.


    Ryan....the Man Card is not to be taken for granted, and can be suspended by any card carrying man. With valid proof, the Man Card may be revoked by said card carrying man (upon revocation, the card must be destroyed) and replaced with (2) pairs of skinny jeans and a Honda Civic.

    Mancards...a cherished commodity that, somehow, young men today think very little of. I'd like to go on record of saying that I have officially suspended one of my neighbor's mancard (been three years now he's been without one) and permanently REVOKED my other neighbor's mancard. The kicker, neither one understands why...we're doomed boys, doomed I say!

    Ironken, had to ask a woman for direction a few years ago, after she told me I said to her please don't tell anyone that a man asked you for directions, though she would never stop laughing, finally got her to stop, said see why men don't ask, no need to ask my wife she still can't tell anyone how to get to our house and she was the smartest in the litter ?

    Hey Joe, men don't ask for driving directions and we tend to fly by the seat of our pants when we are younger. Its all part of having a "man card". Sometimes the end result is good, sometimes not so much.

    Ironken, It was nice to be young and dumb with some good ideas, you can really build things fast when one skips the planning stage, always get interesting results.

    Yes Ryan, that would have been a good one, it kept eating and shooting peas while I was trying to hide behind the five gallon bucket, it finally wrapped the 50 foot card around it self until it un plugged it self from the wall, know a little more about gear reduction that I did 45 years ago, I think ?
