Yep 2 posts 1 day. How lucky are you? 😉
I have to share a story.
Last week the motor died on my Dremel and I don’t have a scroll saw. I’ve been working on cutting out some reindeer for a neighbor and @crystals_journey_4_health. Not something you can do with just any tool. I tried my jigsaw and it refused to take the small curves twists and turns.
So the local @habitatforhumanity has a ReStore that sells donated items. Saturday they got in a bunch of tools including a band saw. Crystal and I discussed it several times. She didn’t think it was a good idea for me to get it because well let’s be honest I am the definition of “luck of the Irish.” I went back and forth many times in my head about it and finally decided to buy it today. After all it was about $100 to $150 cheaper than I was going to get 1 anywhere else.
Crystal was right. Got it home and plugged it in. It sounded as though a portal to hell was ripping open inside the casing and that demons would be spewing out at any moment.
I took the saw out to the garage and Crystal went to work. Few hours later I was sitting here grumbling to myself and trying to figure out a way to get those deer cut out. I went out to the garage and took the casing off the bandsaw figured out what was wrong fixed it cleaned it up as much as I could lubed it up with some wd40 put it back together and fired her up. Guess who has a “new” working bandsaw. 😁
Ever since I was a young child I’ve been able to take things apart and fix them even when I had/have never seen the thing before.
