I was going down an internet rabbit hole yesterday just surfing around (not to mix metaphors, though). I found this on a new simple pocket hole jig. The guy really liked it I noticed that they sell and use Torx screw heads. We have had a lot of problems with the volunteers at the furniture bank not holding the drivers right and munging up the square drive bits. So I contacted them to see if they sell more than the packs of 100 (we use about 32 screws per table at the furniture bank, and usually order one or two boxes of 5000 at a time). Well, they don't, but they volunteered to research it and come up with a quote. I got a call at the end of the day yesterday and again first thing this morning from the president of the company asking for more details. They are still looking into it from their supplier, but in the meantime are sending out several packs for us to try out. What great customer service from a small company. They are just getting into pocket holes. They seem to have a lot of innovative products. And they seem to be geared to the hobbyist market. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=horaysNGJOk
Another collection of peculiar workshop related items. The stories and pictures you are about to see are real. Call it an obsession, sickness, hoarding, or missing fence rescue, IDK why I do it...I just do... Before you judge me and my madness illness, you should first speak to those voices in my head. Rest assured once you do, you'll be snatching orphan fences from the hands of the weak and infirmed too. With maybe a couple of exceptions, all have been $1 or less. those on the right probably 10-30 cents/ea. The Craftsman on the far left was a buck (maybe less), NIB at a yard sale. Some of the others again were 50 cents or less and maybe in a bucket or box with other "treasures" for a buck or two. Same pic as above, only with the box closed. If I recall, these two were $3...purchased from a Habitat for Humanity Restore in Illinois. Must have come out of a retailer who had a fire since there was soot all the packages and the packages were stained like water damage. The B&D will be assigned to a new old stock B&D 7-1/4" circular saw I bought at a flea market for $20. It was missing the fence. circular saw obsession will be a future post unless good weather comes first. As twisted as it may seem, there at least another 6 or 8 not pictured here. They've actually been assigned to orphan tools. Two of which were identical and perfect for my 5-1/2" cordless 19.2V Craftsman and my 18V Ryobi. Another was assigned to an old Craftsman Jig saw I rescued and re-furbed. I think I gave my ex-SIL a couple too. Well thanks for looking...they tell me it's time for my meds.
