Lots of seeming bolt cutter jobs are more easily done with an angle grinder.  Cutting multi-strand steel cable is one good example as is cutting hefty padlocks.

No, not a burglar (although I do know how to spell it).  Just a guy who has had to cut open a lot of locks for people too dumb to remember combinations or where they left their keys.  Many cable locks will even yield to a cutting disk in a Dremel although the HF 4.5" brute is faster though much noisier.

At $15 a pop the HF 4.5" is a fantastic bargain.  Cheap enough to have two - one with grinding wheel and another with cutting disk - so I don't have to change wheels.  They last forever but you do need ear protection for extended use.

I am so bad at spelling I finally joined P.U.N.K.  For those not familiar it stands for People Who Can't Spell!

Thanks,

John

Thanks all.

@Kim - yes the lathe will be on the same wall next to the tool chest. But I may rearrange things once I have everything in place and start a routine.

@Pete - you have no idea how hard I tried to convince her to get 'normal' cages. But it was a no go. They don't last and aren't tall enough.

Caged tomatoes what type do you grow over there? They must be real mean if you have to cage them... they are not crossed with chilli are they  ::)

Kellogg's Breakfast
Jaune Flamme
Arkansas Traveler
Federle
Sheboygan
Black Cherry
Blue Beauty
Cream Sausage
Grappoli D'Iverno

I know nothing about them except how to eat them.
I never ate tomatoes before I met T. I still won't eat any tomato that isn't hers.


They are good people.

Better than most of you.  :lolb:
I mean all of you.

I mean all of you put together.  :lolb: :lolb:

 :'(



I'm just saying they're at the top  ;D
This group follows right behind (with you at top).
There is a great world of idiots behind you all.

@Marv - I tried an angle grindre (at least that's what I thought it was) but it took too long and scared T. The wire is pretty thick - not the usual tomato cage wire.
and I can see you with that "look", Frye boots, hair do, mustache, and all.

Who gave you that photo?  ;D

I used to read Mother Earth News too.
And 'The Good Life' (later the 'Good Neighbors' ) was a must see every week.

Never cared for Earth shoes though.
Loved my windbreaker.

And then there was the CPO jacket.

I now leave you with this...

"Does..your....chewing gum lose it's flavor..."

 :lolb:
I know I got a couple of you.

Hi all,

My apologies for being away for so long. Unfortunately this will continue for some time yet.

Firstly, I especially apologize to Jo for having missed the whole thing and not being here in support. I am so glad everything went well.  :wine1:

It's been some summer. Although the house construction is done, there is much yet to do in getting things back in place and filling up new places.
Flew to Missouri and drove my folks here to see the family. They won't fly. Then drove them back and flew home.
I love my folks but two days in the car with them each way...whew.
Dad turns 91 this December and Mom is 88. I hope to see them again in December.

Eldest daughter got engaged. I like the meathead. He's a good meathead. Wedding appears to be Dec of 2018. Why they want to wait so long is beyond me.

Should have the lathe within 2 or 3 weeks. Haven't done anything with the mill.

Remember the tomato cages I made out of livestock panels? 1st picture shows progress so far. The top of the cages are 6' 10" from the ground. Wow.
The bed in the background has cucumbers growing up a panel and squash behind that.

2nd picture shows how busy T has been with the garden produce. And that doesn't take into account all we've been eating.
More to come including tomato sauces, dried tomatoes, etc.

I look forward to catching up with everything.

Happy machining!  :cheers:

It takes a long time to plan a reception that will bankrupt you?

Hey, welcome back Zee. The garden as well as its yield both look amazing. Lots more to come no doubt as the summer progresses too.
