I have some oddities in my shop. I try to be as organized as I can and some of my organizational methods, ehem, are somewhat to be desired to say the least! I have for years stored the chuck key to my Rockwell Delta Drill Press in a location that I know where it always is, and it also serves a secondary purpose as well. Here is the my beloved Delta Rockwell Drill Press. And the place I keep the chuck key, the original chuck key that came with the drill press is here. Please tell me I am not the only one that has an oddity in the shop such as this. This gate keeper, errr I mean chuck key has served it's purpose there for a decade since I have had this particular drill press. The chuck key is stationed right out the side door of my garage and my drill press is right next to the side door of the garage, I literally take two steps out the side door and I have the chuck key to use for my drill press. I always know where it is, it has never rusted from rain, and it keeps the gate latch secured. This is the gate that separates our side yard from strangers off the street. I have fought this feeling of shame for years now, not having a legitimate location to keep my chuck key, yes, I could keep it at the drill press, you know I actually did that once, and I lost it! Just to find it a day later, and I promptly installed it back in the gate latch where it serves double duty to this day. So there, I have confessed, and I feel great! Please tell me I am not the only one!
