  • I went out to the shop and stood there, looking at the new and as yet un-rebuilt surface grinder (1911 is the only date I can find on it), the 3'x4' surface plate on the floor, the 2'x3' surface plate on it's roll about cart, the unused wood stove, the 1908 Battle Shaper, the horizontal and vertical mills, the lathe, the mini-lathe, the die-filer and the work bench. Then I thought about how to make it all fit.

      Thanks for the suggestion, but you really don't need to reply with a quote of the entire post. An air chisel might be a good idea. Might be time to make another trip to Harbor Freight:

      But my air compressor is only a twin tank, probably 5 gallon, so it would probably run the tool for 10 seconds and take a couple minutes to recharge. I wonder if an electric hammer drill would work?

      Perhaps an electric demolition hammer, $177 at Home Depot:

      Or from Harbor Freight, for $279:

        This is a test. It is only a test. I passed it. It's the first time this week that I've been able to broach** the subject. No comments or condolences needed. It's just the first time I've been able to vent.

        ** broach is the machinist content that makes this on topic.
        Now that is worth a rant.
        Condolences.

        • Paul, how would you reply to a post without adding the photos? I know it can be done just don’t know how to break it apart.

              Delete/erase the image links/code from the quoted part (IMG inside brackets[])

              For example here delete brackets and everything between "[IMG]...[/IMG]"

                    Worked almost right. No image but the quote got broken, you probably deleted accidentally the [/QUOT E] from the end of Paul's quote

                      I'm glad to see Paul is at least using a decent set of hammers and chisels. Not like some YouTube vids where buddy is using a cheap claw hammer and a screwdriver. LOL

                      Another option I use when replying with a quote is to right click the image you don't need and then select cut. This works great when you only want to save one image for the reply instead of all of them, although you can select all of them to cut if you only want to quote the text portion.

                      • Did some attic yoga to replace the bathroom fan, and add a soffit vent for it instead of a roof vent (redid the roof 2 weeks ago and ditched all the pop up vents). A 4/12 was nice to work on, but sure sucks to work under. I have bruises all over my chest and arms from how I had to lay down and work over the plumbing vent pipes. Looks (and feels) like someone beat me with a baseball bat lol.

                        When that was done I tried to track down the source of a new vibration in my truck. What I thought (and was hoping for) was a u-joint looks to be a front output shaft bearing on the transfer case. There's a bit of play in the shaft. I've been saving up money all summer for a plasma cutter, and now all that money will probably go towards fixing the truck.

                        I was just thinking about selling it a couple weeks ago, and buying an older squarebody chev to restore, and getting a small daily driver car. It's getting old enough (2010-240,000km) that it's going to start costing me money again, and I'd rather put that money into an older truck. It must have read my mind.

                            Did you spot the OSHA violation? Chisel with the hammer end spalled over. When I was a kid I hit a chisel like that and felt a sharp pain in my upper arm. A week or so later it festered up and the chunk of metal that had embedded came to the surface!

                                You might make it work but it's not likely to be great. That'll be a percussion hammer rather then a pneumatic hammer so it'll be far weaker than any of the other options. It's also unlikely to do hammer without rotation so you wouldn't be able to use a spade type chisel, just a drill bit.
                                The breakers would certainly do the job (obviously you get what you pay for to a certain extent with make and model) if you have enough use for something fairly dedicated to that job. If you want something somewhere between, have a look at SDS drills. You can usually stop the rotation and just use the pneumatic hammer on them for the brickwork you're doing. The benefit is that you can also use them for holes in stubborn masonry. I had to have one to hang any pictures in my last flat! Where the percussion drill really struggles, they go through it like butter. The cordless ones aren't that bad now either - the cordless Bosch I have is at least as good as the corded Ryobi I had before (but was too lazy to plug in for the 5 seconds it would be used for). Only issue is battery life if you're going for really heavy demolition - and I'm talking large edifices of concrete here with more flint than seems fair.
