Get this...the name of the color on the one wall is..."Inventive Orange".
Is that not cool?  ;D

Question is...was she stating or wishing?

The other walls are egg-white.

When you were talking about an orange wall it had me wondering...but that looks really nice.
It's going to be a nice bright and warm feeling room.
I can imagine the excitement starting to build!

The oily swarf flying off the mill will change that color!

That would be me.  ;D

Looks like we're not going to get the storm they had said. We have maybe 3 or 4". Mostly sleet and freezing rain coming down.
Might get another 1" today they 'said'.

Hopefully the freezing rain won't do too much damage............nasty stuff! Rainy with a high of 61 here today. I'll take it gladly.... compared to what you folks are dealing with back East.

PS: I just noticed that this is post 1000 for me.  :cheers: Only 3521 more and I'll be caught up with you, Zee!  :lolb:

Lots of stuff to consider. Paper towel holder, mirror, tools, etc.
...

I realize this is way early but, having just gone through the product search myself, let me pass some information along.

On most towel holders, if you give a pull the roll will rotate and spill paper towels out in a stream onto the floor.  Similarly, if you give a sharp tug to tear off one towel, the thing will vomit towels everywhere. 

Through dedicated research aided by a really good hint, I came across this...

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0024AKCTS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The roller has a built-in light-duty ratchet.  As soon as your pull force stops, it stops the roller from further rotation.  At that point, a sharp tug will remove what you've unrolled without starting another towel vomit.  It's all stainless steel construction so it will outlast any cheap plastic towel rack.

I bought one and installed it in my shop and I'm pleased which, you can imagine, is no easy thing to do.  The only problem is that now my wife wants one.

 :headscratch: Why is it you seem to have some nice looking gadgets over that side of the pond that could be added to the collection but they want twice as much in pounds as they cost in dollars over this side :noidea:.
