    A friend gave me what he thought was a heater that had broken but still worked and just needed to be put back together, However, I found that it is actually an oscillating tower fan, and might be difficult to fix, although perhaps would be an interesting machining project. Otherwise, maybe I can come up with some way to repurpose it or use some of the parts:







    I found a manual for it:

    A similar unit is $55 at Target:

    I made 1.2 Imperial gallons of delicious beef stew.

    For lunch, I made an open faced turkey sandwich with gravy, but then realized we only have honey ham, so it's actually an open faced ham sandwich with gravy.. It will still good

    I chose the Rage 3DB because the linear slides will allow it to do everything the older saw does and then a lot more. It will be nice for very clean cuts of tubing and rod. And on top of that it's cheap on Amazon. Now all I have to do is to make a nice stand for it.

    Here is a stand I built many years ago I like it because you can quickly take the saw off

    How heavy and how big a diameter is the brake drum?

    I have a bunch of large brake disks, that I wanted to use for stand bases on vises and some other things, but I cannot convince myself they are large/heavy enough to be stable. Maybe if I used two, one over the other just as a weight.

    This looks like a typical HD truck/trailer drum. 60 plus pounds. Working surface, about 16x 7 1/2". I used to buy the heaviest ones I could find for our fleet of garbage wagons. Some were so heavy I could barely handle 'em. Stop by your nearest truck shop/dealership and ask the shop foireman if you can have a couple for grider stands. All truck shop guys have at least 1 grinder on a drum stand.

    It’s plenty heavy for the cutoff saw. I have my 2x72 belt grinder mounted on one too., wish it were a bit heavier once in a while. Guess I could pour it full of concrete.

    Yup. Ought to hold a whole bag of premix. While you're at it drill and tap the rim for 3 leveling screws.
