    Funny we had the maintenance guy repair the one on the big drill press , some guys just smack it closed or off if you will
    , They aren’t made for that.

    Yeah E-stops are not made to be smack off all the time. Some people just don’t care.

She had a little trouble using the ratchet. But manage to get the bolts tight with my help. This makes me happy to see want be interested in doing things like this.

    OLD THREAD WARNING

    My wife has asked my advice alot this week on sanding and finishing wood. She is making home decor and signs and other stuff. She had some finishes that had failed and other issues that she didn’t know how to deal with. I tried my best to share what I have learnt over the years to help her make a better product.

    She didn’t really like the idea that some of what I was telling was adding time to her projects. I had to remind her that if you don’t it right. You might have a customer return a product that has failed and this could give you a bad name. He has been hustling her butt this week to go to her first craft show. So we will see how well she does. The Craft show might not be too busy due Covid. I sure it still be a learning experience.

    I agree… doing it right the first time is the way to go. Plus it gets easier and faster the more often you do it the right way

    What types of things is your wife building for the craft show?

    Very true!

    She uses reusable transfers chalk paste and chalk paint to make different types of with signs, pillows etc. She also sells the chalk transfers and chalk supplies. She has started to do online courses and has done few in person classes.
    You can chalk on something and after say month you cam remove it and put something in same place. It is quite interesting process. She just tried the craft show for something different.

    There was man that stopped and looked a items yesterday. He was totally surprised that my wife made these items. He ended up buying 2 or 3 items from her. The man said everything you buy now days is from China.

    That’s awesome, teach them early to be able to take care of a lot of the ‘daily stuff’ in life.

    Thanks! I try as much as I can. It seemed easier when they were younger. LOL!! My girls still take a interest in doing stuff. They both want to help paint the house when were painting it before we moved it. They did pretty good job.
