    Wow, you've got a good client there then. Most of my clients from my service tech days just tried to feed me :rolleyes:

    This is interesting... I just looked in my SS cabinet and found that someone put about a yard of Theraband Red in there. I have no idea where it came from.

    Wow what line of work are you in? I want to be a guy-who-gets-power-tools-from-clients when I grow up;)
    How do you like those combo belt/disc sanders? I'm looking into getting one myself (a much more modest harbor freight model) and was wondering how much people like them.

    I have a 350 watt belt disc combo, its not going to win any awards but for what I use it for its fine.
    I'd spend a bit more money next time and get a 500 watt so I'm less likely to stall the motor.
    some of them have weird sized belts that are hard to find replacements for (at least hard to find replacements for where I am).

    the disk sander on them is very rarely square, so don't expect perfection unless you pay through the nose for it. and the cheaper ones have an alloy disk plate and self adhesive velcro disk that will become airborne when you need it most.

    I am a lawyer, although I don't think that has a lot of connection with my luck here. The client is a just a really nice guy.

    The other thing about the new sander - I opened it last night. It is actually new and unused. All the plastic still on.

    I have the alloy plate and velcro for both sanders. I will watch out for 80 grit flying saucers.

    Dolomite, it is a good thing she was not asking you "does this dress make me look fat" that could not have turned out well :D you would think that if people ask you what you think, they want to know what you think, but I guess they had rather you lie to them:D I needed a good laugh today. Your the best ;) no lie:)

    "Dolomite, it is a good thing she was not asking you "does this dress make me look fat" that could not have turned out well."

    Possible answer:

    "Not at all, its all the cakes and pies you eat."

    She's hot as hell, I just don't like short hair. Guess it's easier when interacting with the baby. Maybe the Ellen Degeneres comment was a little too far.

    Today I have a broken kettle, this is VERY serious. I almost had to go without a coffee earlier. Thank all the deities I had some fresh coffee left for the percolator.

    Holy crap, that gave me anxiety just thinking about that:eek:
    This is why I have a backup stovetop kettle, and a hiking stove in case the powers out.

    That really is a scary prospect. Zombie apocalypse - okay. Hollywood and all the stars/starlets fall into the ocean - I'm cool with that. No coffee - that's bad news.

    My new camera arrived today!!!!
    Got myself a Nikon D3200 so I can finally stop relying on my iPhone 5.
    Now I need a good camera bag and some more lenses:)
