    So, I made a cup of tea and purposefully left it in the kitchen to get cold. When my wife headed into the kitchen I called out to her to please heat up my tea and bring it to me. She microwaved it for a minute and brought it over, and she still didn't notice the very bright light inside the microwave has been fixed. I give up.

    But she'll notice what DOESN'T get done...I got the text at lunch today "really disappointing to come home to the trash not being taken out and no groceries" ...I worked all weekend and no mention of how quiet the furnace is now.

    IMG_2043.jpg 16 years ago I purchased a small table saw from the big box lumber yard. It cost $125.00. 3 Years ago I built it into my work table to make it wider and a long runout. This past weekend the motor died. After only 16 years. I started checking around and found a used motor on ebay for $165.00. Went to the local electric motor shop and they could get me a new motor for $325.00. Went to the local cheap tool store and bought a newer IMG_2043.jpg model of the same one I have for $155.00. It will drop right in the hole and my dust collector should work with only a few modification. Should be back in the noise and sawdust business for New Years.

    Milwaukee M18 angle grinder. Cut up an old metal shelf already...like a hot knife through butter! Really liking the M18/Fuel power tools! First one I bought was a drill to replace my dying 25+ year old Black N Decker. Wow, what an improvement!!

    It'll stay as it is. I'm planning to hopefully get it running nice and put it into regular use.

    Not sure what i bought :coffee: I’m guessing it’s a 1940’s jewelry box. A thrift shop find that goes well with the beach house decor theme. It might become a home for my cufflinks.

    I like to repurpose, like the flea market barbacide jar that now holds all that toothpaste from Costco
