  • Shop related New Year's resolutions?

    Lets list our New Year's resolutions here and then come back in lets say a month and check off our list.

    My first resolution is to build a comprehensive drill index. I have been putting it off for too long.

      Clean up machines & clear out all the swarf after the last job, and not before the next job.

        If I did this again I'd use brake discs instead of the plastic disc. Holes can be drilled in the first "plate" in the brake disc and the other plate can serve as the bottom rest for the drills. Just a thought. Anyway, I'd like to see what you come up with.

                I resolve not to have resolutions. No failure disappointment that way.

                  I just keep saying i'm thinking about mine, can't make any statements i might regret later by not fullfilling them.
                  Let it go long enough and everyone will forget about it. Lol

                    I've decided to open a business called 'Resolutions'. The first two weeks in January it will be a health and fitness club. The rest of the year it will be a bar. With great snacks at happy hour.
                    I'm here hoping to advancify my smartitude.

                      Even better name the bar "Fitness Center". Charge a monthly membership fee. Then when the wife pays the monthly bills and sends off the money to the "Fitness Center" she will be proud of your dedication!

                          First few weeks in January nobody has any money anyway, so no point in offering bar products. Around March you can sell cleaning supplies, June through August it would be suntan lotion, and for the last three weeks of November and the first three weeks of December you can sell all kinds of junk made in China to the members, at a discount. No need to go anywhere else, and this will help with the resolutions- yep I'm gonna clean my house this spring, I'm going to get a tan this summer whether it kills me or not, and I'm going to get my Christmas shopping done early. Whoohoo
                          I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-
