    don't worry, the photo has probably been saved by half the members here so we can keep posting it when you're gone. will make a nice motivational poster.



    and i just have to ask: what exactly was that used for in the kitchen?

    ...no vibrators in my house , but if i thought the shop could use one....perhaps i could
    convince the little lady..........

    " No honey, this is for coolant aeration in my Haas mill......... get your own!"

    the ol' lady is still wondering where the toaster-oven went ....

    certainly not to my shop for tempering small parts and baking on paint !


    when i run out of scotch-brite , the pot scrubbers seem to disappear as well.



    not to mention all the serrated knives.

    plastic storage containers and SS pots end up anodizing and acid bath/ plating and such...

    i suppose it's ok, 'cause it gives her an excuse to drive to the Atlanta IKEA to pick me up
    some more supplies

    The innovative engraver is absolutely hilarious!
    I would speculate and assume that it did NOT come from the kitchen but we'll never really know!

    Porschefix, if you want to sell anything on the classified's and mention local pick-up only I'm sure it'll sale!

    I don't know why you think you'd be dead. Your wife looks like a very sweet lady intent on doing her best, to help her man get his project completed. That's a wonderful picture. It belongs in the "I gotta' save these." scrap book.

    In my opinion, a wife like her is a rare find. The picture tells the complete story.

    My best regards to you and her,

    We don't eat 'Creme Brulle' desert any more,
    because the Brulle Torch is in my workshop.!
    Can't believe no-one else has stolen one after 3 pages of admissions .

    Lol had the reverse problem. A seivert torch with roofing size nozzle does at least 10 in one pass :-) A Bridgeport and hand wisk makes a acceptable food mixer too. Just make sure you don't have the spindle drip, ie skip the oil for once!

    Porschefix, you have just redefined the term tool-porn.

    Years ago back when I was building our MiniSubs I "borrowed" the oven to blow mold the bubble windows for the subs. You can even see the results here...

    (MiniSub SSRV photo gallery)

    My wife worked the late shift as a master control technician for a local TV station, so I had the place to myself. I cut a sheet of plywood and radiused the edge and laid a precut sheet of lexan with marguard on top. Toss it in the oven, turn on the heat to around 375 and wait about 20 minutes for it to get soft and start to sag. Open the oven and gently blow with a blow gun to help form the shape as it droops. Slide it out of the oven and cool it to hold the shape. A bit tedious perhaps, but it worked well.

    Until of course the night when the phone rang about 15 minutes into the process. I got sidetracked and completely forgot about the melting plastic for about an hour until the smoke detector went off. Melted plastic was stuck everywhere, and I knew I was in trouble. I turned off the oven, opened all the doors and cranked up some fans. I figured I'd have plenty of time to get up in the morning and fix the mess before my wife was any wiser, so I went to sleep.

    To bad my wife had the urge to bake bread when she came home and turned the oven back on to preheat it...

    She was madder than when she caught me dunking the ATV tires in the hot tub to find the leaks.

    I have been banned from using the oven as a shop tool anymore, even for bearing fits. Ah well, she still keeps me around so I must not be all bad.

    And I still have to clean the hot tub! She refuses to do it any more.

    I'm sorry Davy, but at first I thought the pic was this:

    Amazon.com: Double Power Penis Pump Erection Aids, Erection Aid Kit: Health & Personal Care


    I hope you get a laugh out of it, too. No offense.

    It reminds me of the videos clip:

    Well, like most things borrowed from the kitchen they are not wanted back. So, maybe it was the replacement?

    oven cleaner for tough to clean parts.
    my buddy uses his dishwasher to clean chrome parts for his car projects.
    meat thermometer (still in toolbox beside infra-red thermometer)
    i use rubber bands when boring with my south bend,helps minimize chatter.
    toothbrushes for small parts cleaning-well used ones only.
    still trying to sneak toaster oven out to the shop,may just have to buy momma a new one.

    I feel like an oddball because it's backwards for me. I find an old plastic pitcher or silver butterknife in the shop that's been there for probably 20 years, I think "Hey! I know where this goes!" and it get's washed and put in the lunch area. On several ocasions I've noticed those 'shop tools' have ended up in the kitchen at home. OCD a work, gentlemen.

    On the other hand though, we get plenty of use out of those little black plastic trays that the fancy ramen and frozen dinners come in. Great for parts. We also tend to buy out the local dollar stores supply of oven cleaner on a regular basis.

    My mom used to say:
    "If people knew what had been cooked in our pots, they wouldn't eat here anymore"

    Dad used to do blueing and browning on the stove top, among other activities.

    Porchefix,

    If I had seen my wife with such a tool in the kitchen when we were fixing a surface-mount circuit board in the toaster oven, she'd have said it was something to fluff the muffins or open clams or whatnot. Aside from battery life I wouldn't be concerned. After 33 years of marriage, you tend to let these things slide.

    Cookie pans for chip trays under South Bend. Lard for cutting lube.

    I have appropriated:
    Microwave
    full size oven (bought her a new one) for powdercoating, heating chemicals (stovetop) heat treating (low temp)
    Two crock pots (from before I had a stovetop)
    Dual burner gas range and pair of pots... works great for melting lead and low temp alloys
    numerous broilers, cookie sheets, etc.
    She finally started buying nitrile gloves two boxes at a time, hers for cooking, mine for quick work where I don't want to get filthy.
    several colanders
    randomly disappearing rolls of paper towels, disposable utensils and cups
    hot plate (again, before I had the stove)
    I'm sure there's more but I feel guilty enough to stop typing now...

    I'm trying to figure out how to make a small milling machine out of my wifes Kitchen Aide mixer. The x/y axis is no problem it's the z that's got me hung up. I really like the variable speed control.
