    • Been in Hong Kong the past four days. 13 hours ahead of East coast time, so my day is starting as I type this. Going for a walk, a few mile walk, looking to explore some place new.

      • So, 3PL, do you have a road map to guide you through all your Meg-a-bins, so you can find what you want or need or is all this for show?

          No road map needed now. I can now easily find any hardware, any taps, and any drill bits <= 1/2". I still have to sort/label my endmills, reamers, large drill bits, and Helicoils. It's also forcing me to go through everything I have. I learned a lot about the different types of taps.

            That was soooooo bad of a no-call. Even my mom wondered why they didn't call interference. And she is not a fan of football.
            I think you were watching the wrong type of football game. I'm not sure what soccer gave you guys were watching.

            We will grab the superbowl again. Got an issue? Get yourself a tissue.

                        Not snarky at all...... why would you think that? (Not that being a little snarky would be a problem in this particular case....)

                        Some folks shop hobby is almost more about building it just the way they want it, and don't start really using it until then....sometimes completion leaves them at a loss for the moment. Others use shops many of us might consider to be dingy holes, because they do not want to bother setting up a better one and would rather get down to business.

                        I fall in between, I sorta let mine set itself up anyhow it happened to go as I got more machines, but have got to the point now that some re-arrangement and expansion is needed. I guess I am more in the "get down to business" camp. I'd stiill have hardware mixed in tubs if my wife had not gotten bored some years ago and sorted it all out (very competently) into a set of drawers. Everything from #6 up to 1/2".

                            eh, it was a bit, but deserved. How many bin photos can you see before lashing out?
