Well..... that's a good philosophy. Too many times I walk away after the day is done.orvet wrote:
Mike, a shop that is used is just controlled chaos! If you get organized from time to time It makes it easier to re-order the chaos when you finish some projects. I don't clean after every project but I do try to straighten things up at least weekly. When I start losing valuable time and energy looking for things in the chaos, I know it is time to clean.
I have used a friend's low-speed Baldor polisher, and it works great. I would far prefer one of those, but I just cannot afford one right now.
I know what you mean about dropping things. When I do it, the object falls and hits the toe of my shoe and goes all the way back to the wall under the bench. The next time I get in to see the orthopedic surgeon, I am going to ask him about having my feet reversed so this does not happen anymore. lolJeffinn wrote: ↑Wed Jan 29, 2020 1:02 amLOL! Well I cleaned up the area a bit for the photo.
Like most of ya’ll I tend to have things laying everywhere when Im working. But it drives me crazy when I have to stop to look for something so Im trying to be neater.
One biggie for me is the gap under the lower shelf, when I drop something it ALWAYS goes under that dang shelf which means I have to get the flashlight out and get down on the floor to see if I can find it.
That is a treasure trove!knifegnome wrote: ↑Sun Mar 22, 2020 1:48 amI just started working on knives ,mainly just replacing handles on old fixed blade knives.I stopped at an estate sale today but they had no knives, the garage was packed with stuff,I was looking through some drawers and they were filled with bronze,brass,copper and nickle silver sheets and other metals,hope to put some to knife use.
