Print Stuff You Can Really Use And Have Fun Doing It
« on: October 20, 2016, 01:52:40 AM »
I'm just getting started working my way printing things for all the tooling I have for my machines. I've recently moved and the equipment has come out of retirement as the new (smaller) shop slowly takes shape. The printer's been running all day for several weeks now. Pics attached.

That right there would be a good enough reason for me to buy a 3d printer!  :)

Damn!  Someone with worse OCD than I.

I've often made abortive attempts at making holders for everything (though not 3D printed).  I finally gave up because it makes it unappealing to buy a new tool.  What a lovely chisel!  I need (read want) one of those.  But my chisel rack is already full.  What to do?  Why, keep all the chisels in a big drawer where there's always room for one more.

Regardless, it looks great.  I congratulate you.

If I walk by a table and there's something with straight lines sitting on it but that object is not aligned such that its edges are parallel with the edge of the table, I must adjust it so that it sits properly in relation to the lines of the table. Would that be mild OCD or borderline insanity? If it's insanity then I have an excuse for many of the things I've done and said over the years.

Good to see you're around, Marv - and thanks.

Steamer - I wouldn't want to make holders for all that RC-related stuff you must have. I have a fair share myself and even I wasn't crazy enough to go there...

You're kidding; surely everybody does that, don't they?  It's only when you align the paper clips so they protrude from the magnetic holder the same distance that you have serious OCD.  Not that I do that, you understand.

This thread is becoming a rerun of 'Monk'.  Like the holders anyway.   :cheers:

LMAO!    RC stuff stays in the Pit Bag!     Otherwise I'll never have what I need...the bag is like 100 pounds!

I used to love that show!

However, I did notice on one episode that, although the books on the shelves were correctly ordered by size, within a given size group they weren't alphabetically ordered by author's surname.  Inexcusable!

That is a great job Dennis. I'm a bit OCD myself, but, I also have ADD and that means I never finish what I'm organizing. Well, that's my story anyway  8)

So, you DO sort the grains of salt in the shaker by size, and stack them neatly and evenly, I hope? ...

Are you kidding?  That would be just...weird.  Sheesh!

Besides, it would take up too much time, what with all the pepper sorting.
