Boy, T and I are going to have a blast cooking in that kitchen when I come to visit. +1 on the kitchen gathering. I once thought it was because I was so entertaining, then I realized they were just hungry and thirsty  :lolb:. Looking great old boy

Bad day.

Not one thing. Just that kind of day where everything seems to come together and you say 'crap'.

Crown molding not right.
Nails everywhere.
Constant interruptions at work.
Microwave finally gave out.
Spilled my drink.
Stubbed my toe.
Blew a sock.
Got no ice.
Found a zit.
Don't know why I have this bruise.
Ran out of oatmeal.
Poked myself in the eye.
Found out someone is trying to scam my social security.
Stepped on a Dorito chip that had escaped.

Just little crap.
Adds up.

My apologies. Just a little life rant.  :cussing:

At this point I generally look for a silver lining.
Stinking Hoppie!  :pinkelephant:

Crap. Out of ice.

I've been silently following this thread and waiting for the completion to congratulate you.  I saw your bad day post and figured that it is time to break my silence.  Your silver lining is that you are getting a great shop in the end.  I'm envious Zee.  I'll be a basement shop dweller until  the day I die.

Sounds like the kind of day you worry about taking a leak!
Kitchen looks great.  We went through that while thing 20 years ago and I still have the scars (mental scars-never again.)
It will be worth it in the long run.

That kind of day makes you just want to crawl back into bed at noon.

Thanks.

Yes, it will all be worth it.

But the biggie today was being out of ice.  ;D

Well, actually, the biggie is someone trying to scam my social security. I have no patience with certain thieves.

I say 'certain' because I do have some leeway for the desperate - I wouldn't call them thieves.

But these people are not desperate. They are thieves.

Anyone remember D&D?

Great looking kitchen Zee.  I hope you are saving all the leftover granite for your workbenches.

A word of caution about this collet chuck
Quote
If I'm correct, your new lathe has an MT 4 in the headstock. If this is true something like this maybe the answer to a collet chuck.

I installed one on my Grizzly G0602 lathe and actually made a 1 3/4" - 8 nut to screw onto the spindle to allow me to leverage the chuck out of the MT4 spindle taper.  It worked fine for several uses, and then it didn't.  Last week I tried everything to get that taper to release and it was just stuck.  I finally had to bang on the drawbar with a hammer to release it, something I really do not like to do.  I had even tried a pulley remover and ended up breaking the outer pulley casting.  Don't think I'll use it again, especially since I have spindle collet systems for my other lathes.

My lathe when I purchased it included a chunk of aluminum bar that was a sliding fit in the spindle. My collet fits in a taper and one pop with the aluminum bar pops it out. Seems like a waste of aluminum but I haven't found a better use for it yet. :ROFL:

An update and an apology.
I mean an apology and an update.

My apologies to everyone for having had a hand in the locking of 'that' thread.
While these are sensitive times and I have strong feelings when it comes to divisive language and painting a group of people with the same brush...I should have slept on it before possibly jumping to conclusions and pounding away at the keyboard. I forgot my own advice.

I have no real update. No pics anyway as not much has changed in the last several days.

Trim work is up. Caulking and painting started.
Next week will be big. Some of the rooms will be done enough where we can move a bunch of stuff from upstairs to downstairs so they can work on the upstairs.
No biggie on the upstairs. Mainly replacing baseboard and carpet, and finishing the new windows.
Next week is also landscaping. I need that to be done so the fencing can get started and the garden boxes put in.
I mean so the garden boxes can be put in and the fencing started.  ;D

Once I have an idea of when the driveway will be done and usable then I can order the machines.  :pinkelephant:

I've always heard that the last ten percent takes forty percent of the time and that equals half of the time  :shrug:

Pretty much. At work the rule has been the last 10% is 90% of the job.
Getting something to work is pretty easy. Taking care of all the things that can go wrong is the hard part.  :lolb:
