    That's what I tell my wife all the time!
    I'm in the processes of trying to convince my wife that we need a plasma cutter(I want to build custom bumpers and brush guards for my truck lol)
    Why not zoidberg?

  4. I've got a plasma cutter on my wish list too! My wife is closer to letting me get that than the compressor! Probably cause I said I would make custom lamp shades and such to help it pay for itself. Really just be me playing. Lol!
    What she doesn't know is I would need the new compressor to operate the plasma cutter! I might be screwed on both of em!

    I want something that will at least do 1/4 lol I want to try and reproduce something along the lines of a Iron Bull bumper for my truck I plan on building (that's another thing I haven't told the wife about yet hahaha) that and like Luke said... lampshades and stuff lol
    Why not zoidberg?

  10. That miller would def do the trick. You gota really play up the lampshades and home repair angle to get the ladies in board. They dont get that tools are just cool.

  11. Oh yeah lol...cool thing about my wife is that she will fight me tooth and nail about getting it, but once I get it she wants to know how to use it

    That's how I get a lot of my tools -- home repair or side jobs where "it'll pay for itself in the time it saves me" and "I can use the money from this job to pay for it." That's how I got my new table saw several years ago - she let me get it and I made her a new kitchen! She got the more expensive side of it!

So, after two broken sockets, two broken lug nuts and one broken ratchet, I get the front tires off. Brakes still have a lot of pad left and are NOT bad. Take the new brakes back, exchange them for all new lug nuts and come back home. 10 miles into town mind you. Get all the old rusted lug nuts swapped out and proceed to inspect for the noise my wife was complaining about. Found it. CV joint for front drive shaft. Have to special order it! Send wife on her way. Lifting won't be happening tonight. Gonna go in in the morning.
    At least you know the break pads are good for awhile lol

    Get your lift on today!!

  16. Sorry for the lack of updates this weekend. I was super busy trying to get pantry cabinets made and installed before my wife got back yesterday. Woke up Saturday and got busy working. Around 4 I stopped and got changed and stuff ready to go lift. Drove into town ( takes about 20-25 minutes to get to the gym) only to see the sign saying " new hours" on the front door. They close at 5 on Saturdays!! I got there at 4:56. Well at least I got a really good workout carrying those three big cabinets up the stairs by myself and then setting them. *sigh!!*

    Haha setting cabinets by yourself is truly a workout. Especially holding them up while screwing them to the wall if you don't have anything to support them with, ****s like doing planks...I hate those
    Anywho, how goes the cycle and or cabinets lol

  19. Day 6 & 7

    Off

    Joints in my wrists and elbows have been getting rather achy. Been noticing this for a few days but just tried upping the fish oil. Yesterday when my wife got home, she and my daughter were complaining of their joints hurting in the exact same places. This makes me think it's not caused by the Alpha 90. Not sure though. Right arm joints hurt like a b!tch! Wrist is the worst. Gonna hit the gym today and see how it goes. Took today off from work to just nurse this crap. Ice and icy-hot.

    Lol! I built them, they don't "smash" too easily! Wasn't hanging them but picking them up in a confined space to set them on each other really sucked.

    Just for pantry cabinets I used the less expensive 3/4" plywood. Not the sheathing crap but not the cabinet grade, just sanded ply.

    The wood veneer sheets have their place lol
    But not in cabinets
    I hadn't built a cabinet or countertop for awhile until like 6 months ago... and damn!! Haha for stain grade ply it was around 52 bucks a sheet
    ...we need to start researching steroids for trees damn it, bring the cost of wood down

    Which is why I used the cheaper stuff! Lol! 2 of the cabinets (the top ones!) were 51" t 24" d 30" w. I make cut lists to make the most out of each sheet of ply so I have very minimal waste.

    I'm the same way lol... I couldn't use the cheap stuff on this one hahaha wish I could have though
    I can get 2 lower cabinet sections out of 2 prices of wood lol. But I can't get 1 out of 1
