Default I Got a New Toy!!



I finally got my Dremel! The whining paid off. The wife said it'd be good to help keep me busy while I quit smoking.

I also got a list of things to do with it, but hey, I got it!!

Not to worry, I've been through that and worse. I drilled a ole in my kneecap with one once while working on an RC car.

I'm sure the missus will be all over me about wearing safety glasses and such.

I hope so! The first project is removing rust from the wheelof of the wifes van. I just happen to have a can of rust preventive chrome paint handy, so it oughta be a breeze. And the wife don't care how it looks, making it even easier!

Then I get to do Jack o' Lanterns from big giant dried gourds the wife grew. She'* got some neat designs, so that should be okay.

So, in about a month, I should get to do what I wanna do!! The price you gotta pay to get the toys you want, huh?

My ex-wife wanted a seat built into our bay window. I got an Arc Welder out of the deal for that wood seat, and she never got the seat. An even better deal

Hey, that'* a nice set. That wand attachment is the best!

Do the corners with a hacksaw or hot water. But lemme practice some, and bring 'em over! I just did one wheel (the worst one) on the wife'* van. On a lrge enough area that chrome paint (PlatiKote Bumper Crome) is pretty sweet stuff! Won't win any car shows, but it'* good enough for an astro van
