    Small project day. But first….

    I tried the my new Bosch 18 ga nail gun. It’s about 1/2 the weight of my old one. Has a narrower nose so it’s easy to see where you’re putting the nail and has a bump fire feature. It works nice and does not leave a mark behind from the nose like my old one did. I doubt I will ever use the bump fire mode on it, but it works pretty nice.

    On to the project. I found a piece of walnut out of my scrap bin and drilled a whole bunch of 1/2″ holes part way into it. Then I extended those holes with a 1/4″ bit. A coat of BLO and dark wax and bingo, I have a place that holds all my router bits no matter what the shank size is. In one spot I put a 1/4″ piece of dowel in and sanded down the diameter for the extra bit that exchanges on the shaft.

    I have no car. I brought it into the body shop today. Hoping it’s back by the end of the week.

    What area are you installing them
    I like those New up down windows
    Do you use the same supplier , or do you have a few to choose from.

    @jimdaddyo that’s a nice little stand great idea to use the scrap on

    It’s definitely weird not having a car ,
    I’ll bring mine into the shop next week , just to much work for me to tackle
    Two coil springs , strut bearing top plates
    Two ball joints , table bushings alignment and there was something else just can’t remember it right now
    PS poor bank account is going to take a beating 😭

    Those 2 I installed them on St Denis. It’s a royal PITA to find a parking place with all those road infrastructure work.
    Same supplier, nothing changed. No names, no advertising. I’m not paid to do that.

    I spent the day getting a families to-do list shortened. Patched a couple of holes in their ceiling from light fixtures I had removed or changed, painted their bathroom a slightly darker color, swapped out the light fixture in the same bathroom, out in a couple of towel bars and a toilet paper dispenser bar, and made a small ladder for their shorter kids to use on the zip line I built them earlier this summer.

    Yeah it’s a pain when you have to try to find places to park close to the job site , last thing you want is to be hauling tools and accessories back and forth
    Sounds like you have a good supplier , I might have to Text you when I ready to replace my thermo pains. I assume he can make those , my frame and mechanisms are still in great shape.

    That’s a bummer JDO. Hopefully they will get it fixed and right back to you.

    That is nice idea for router bit holder. Looks like works great. I might have steal this idea. I only have a few loose bits and I have a few router bit sets.

    Wire brushing all the bits I have that fit in the hand brace. Tedious work. I think I may be shopping for a new bench grinder soon. This one is about to let the smoke out of it soon I think.

    Body work. It’s 12 years old.

    Sounds like you are liking your new Bosch nail gun.

    It’s a huge improvement over my old one. Yeah, I like it.

    Steal away my friend. I saw something similar somewhere and stole it too. But that’s why I posted it. Ideas are only good if they are shared.

    Cleaned up the shop today. It’s looking like mostly rain days this week, so I might do some work in the shop for a change, just not sure what. Shop had turned into a dumping ground for all sorts of stuff lately.

    Also unpacked and inspected a new lamp post that we ordered from Costco. One of the shades had a crack, so I called the manufacturer and they’re sending me out a replacement shade. That’s my next concrete job, a new base for this new lamp.

    Yup,, single hungs and double hungs. Then you have your casements and jalousie windows, oh lets not forget the awning windows.

    I finished installing the sheet rock in the ceiling I’m working on today. I only put up 6 sheets in the whole day, but man was it difficult feeling! By myself, up into the rafters and balanced between them was not ideal…I had a kind of make shift platform up there but it was almost in the way as much as it was helpful. My new 3’ Bessey clamps were really helpful though.

    Got my latest bookcase installed yesterday. They are 18’ wide x10’ tall out of white oak. This was my first time doing a ladder.
