Nice job on the paint! I like the hammertone! Did you mask off the black or hand paint it?

Thanks! I masked the black, but me being me I did it backwards and painted the black, then masked the black and painted the gray. Still turned out good, and the gray was a really close match to the original gray even! If I were to do it again I would probably hand paint it but it looks good like it is. Smile

Nice box! Smile

My folks went and bought me this craftsman cart a while ago and it is fantastic. Went ahead and stuffed all my tools into it and looks like I don’t need to be buying anymore tools for a while or I’m gonna run out of room lol

That craftsman drill is one my dad passed on to me since he has a cordless dewalt now, its a real American made tool, and all it needed was a cleaning and the cord shortened to fix an exposed wire. I still use it regularly!

Long post so I hope y’all don’t mind heh

Nice! I always like looking at what tools other people use and have. Sometimes you find something you dont have that you need!  Tools/Garage Stuff - Page 3 2731072446

Same here! Very Happy And I just realized that I don’t have a set of combination wrenches, so I suppose I’d better get a set lol. That and it’s also nice to see how other folks organize their stuff, you can often find a trick to do it better.

I use the kitchen cabinet liner stuff. It works well and is easy to cut to fit.

Well, I decided to make a cart for the plasma cutter. I have a good junkyard and I think this will work. Need a bit of sheet metal from a snowblower yet for the shelves. Made from a bicycle carrier, two wheel cart and a couple of big casters so far.
I did confirm that I can weld as badly as ever, wearing shorts, tee shirt and sneakers. I did use gloves and a hood, but that didn’t improve the pitiful mud dauber welds. My little inverter TIG will work as a stick welder and did well, but the operator is an idiot and too lazy to clean paint and rust before daubing.

The plasma cutter arrived yesterday. It looks quite nice. The stinger lead is about 12’ long! Excellent.

I worked some more on the cart for the cutter. It is all ready to clean up and weld. It is just tacked together now. I made plywood shelves and got the top shelf ‘upholstered’ with aluminum flashing. Tomorrow I might get the bottom shelf done and grind the paint and rust and dirt in preparation for the final welding and painting.
