With the advent of the internet and social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter, the world has become a smaller and more connected place. There has even been a substantial decrease in the amount of written correspondence being sent through post offices all over the globe nowadays, due to the proliferation of emailing, texting and online instant messaging. But for those living thousands of miles apart from members of their family, or anyone with friends living in different countries, it's typically a little different. A small handwritten letter or a lovingly assembled care package will instantly make the heart sing and your mood surge with inner contentment while emitting a happy exterior glow.
Long gone are the days when buying something from a different state - let alone a different country - would be an exotic or adventurous concept. It has now become an everyday experience to order something from an online store, wait a few days and then, hey presto, it's arrived as if by magic. You could be buying the latest mass-produced high-tech from Best Buy, a vintage, secondhand product from a seller on either eBay or eCRATER, or a uniquely upcycled handmade item from a creative craft maker located on the other side of the world via Etsy.
I noticed that the board that's mounted to the hand-cranked lead screw that makes the work surface boards function as a built-in vise, was loose, and flopped around as the handles were cranked. To remedy this, I used a wrench to tighten the crank shaft attachment on the moveable work surface so that there was less play as the unit is cranked. Don't over tighten, or the board won't move at all!
Most hardware stores, back in the paint section, have what they call an "oops" area. An oops area is where all the custom coloring is done.......sometimes twice. The quart, gallon, and five gallon containers from the employees first attempts at the customers colors are usually reduced price steals. Where else are you going to find five gallons of black 30 year exterior latex enamel for $15.00? Concrete paints, porch and deck polymers, and the always abundant latex varieties are all victims to colorant errors. This is something I do faithfully every time I enter my Home Depot or Orchard Supply Hardware stores. Always seems to be a gallon black or a shade of gray in there all year long. Beware of the paint Nazi who thinks she can tell you how to paint and with what. PVA primer CAN be pigmented.
Router: 1 1/2 to 2 HP find a good used one, unless it's been dropped and kicked around a lot a good router lasts a long time, two things to look for first brushes that can still be bought and easily changed and two both a 1/4 and 1/2 inch Collete. a router that uses only a 1/4 Collete is of very limited use. if you can a new router of good quality can be bought for $100.00 and you really don't need a plunge router ( but they are nice ).
Forth, "Section the bike off", in your mind's eye. How many times have you seen a friend start on the mirrors and end up 5 minutes later on the exhaust tips and nothing in between done very well? I call this the "hop, skip and jump syndrome". He'll clean from spot to spot for a long time and when he's done the bike isn't. The poor guy tried to clean the whole bike at once, never had focus, never had a muscle routine and ended, after too much time, with a bike that's "ok" but not detailed like yours.
