I travel for a living so walking out of the AC for 10 min and having it set up already really is nice... plus a ice cold Tito's and lemonade or jack honey ice cold!!!!Too bad you dont have any cool or nice stuff.
Im a bit of a junk collector, so if you ever upgrade and need to offload, happy to do you a favor and take some of that away for ya........

Was wandering through the local small town hardware store looking for same packing tape. Went down a aisle that dead ended, and as I turned around these were spotted hidden on a low shelf among some other items. Each box was open with a hand written sale price. After a quick examination they, along with two rolls pf tape, made it to the ash register. One of the owners said they'd had them for years. When asked if they had any more Starrett items he said no.
Just finished testing with check gages and a machinist square. Dead nuts on. Retail as marked, $199. My cost, $80. Not bad says I.
Some day when the kids clean out my junk, they are going to shake their heads. Does anybody really need that many micrometers?
I give ya 25 bucks and a moon pie for the top left one.
You guys almost had me with the moon pie. Vanilla, right?What a coincidence! I was going to make the same offer for the bottom left!
Thanks for the generous offers, but I think I'll hang onto them for show and tell, and in the future walk through these small stores a little slower.
I told him they make a tool that’ll pack the bearing for ya’ but I don’t have oneGet that boy a proper bearing packer!
It’s better they learn on the rusty hard ones. That way the shiny new ones are a walk in the park. 9 times out of 10, I have to replace the calipers too on these rust belt trucks.
I bet you do and it's conveniently packed away.I told him they make a tool that’ll pack the bearing for ya’ but I don’t have one
I had a 16 year old kid come help me shovel out 15y of stone and spread and seed 12y of topsoil with shovels and wheelbarrows on Saturday when the heat index was 103F. I asked his Dad before we left if I should break him or bring him home tired.I teach during the hottest part of the day so they will have some appreciation for folks that do hard shit for a living.
I hate any work during that time but I get a kick out of watching the kids suffer...
I say put them on the razors edge and see what they are made of.I had a 16 year old kid come help me shovel out 15y of stone and spread and seed 12y of topsoil with shovels and wheelbarrows on Saturday when the heat index was 103F.

On a serious note. Gonna be a helluva Berry Season. That's a win, win. Berry food for us, and Berry food for da Bears. Buddy just got his back the other day from last year. It's a "Cheesy Set Up", but it's a Pole Building we call "Elk Camp" and 3 of us share it. We hang stuff in there we ain't got room to hang at home.
7 Footer. That ain't a bad Bear for up here. Buddy needs to get the skull scored. Got no doubt it'll make the Book. 448 yrds I believe, he said he held for 450 with his 300WM with the 210gr Bergers I loaded up for him. We had a great load for his Thompson, but it ended up with some issues, so he picked up a bit older R700 Sendero. Damn thing shoots pretty good so far. Anyhow, he thumped it.
I'm the Banana for reference. No smart ass comments!
