    That is very true.

    However, I just meant as far as satisfying tool to use...

    I do enjoy using a torch, never used a plasma cutter though. And I’m not great with a torch, just good enough to get by and be dangerous. :anonymous:

    Idk I think that tool would either be a metal lathe or a nice sharp handplane. Actually nailing bends on the tubing bender is pretty good too

    I think that response says a lot about the person. Your favored tools are ones of precision and the satisfaction that comes with it. I agree, if I can nail something with a precision tool, it's very satisfying but it usually comes after a LOT of frustration and cussing (in my case). So my most satisfying tools to operate are generally those of shear brute force and destruction, demo hammer, sledge, axe, chain saw, sawzall, etc. On my renovation projects around the house, my level of joy is at an all time high during demo day, then decreases throughout the project. I like framing and structural work, even masonry to an extent, I hate installing trim and will do anything to avoid painting.

    :rofl:

    Either my wood burner or the heating element that you drag along the edges of a structural Styrofoam panel to put a joist in there. Cancer smoke, but satisfying tool.

    First deep clean of the truck since I put in the leather Clazzios and the factory rubber floors. WHAT a difference in time/labor, holy smokes.

    I'm glad I got that floor before they dried up, that's for sure.

    Also, that SEM interior dye... Man, I did it by the book and I'm getting chipping/marring in high traffic areas. When I take out the console again to gut the factory inverter, I'll touch it up, but after that, whatever - it will just have to uh acquire a patina until I'm ready to make the new center and overhead consoles. I'm sure it's great for smooth interiors that don't get beat on/lived in, but if your truck does truck stuff and you throw stuff in it through an open door, don't bother.

    Anyone got good tips to keep wasps out of a shed? Every time I go out there lately, they've started on a new nest. I spray it and knock it down every time, but they haven't given up so far.

    I’ve heard taking a brown lunch bag and stuffing it with paper and then wrapping the top so that it mimics a hornet’s nest keeps bees nests away. Never did it myself but know a few that swear by it.

    Make sure that the eaves are ventilated. They hate air flow. I had an old shed and all summer long I'd have to kill nests. When I replaced it with one that had vents in the front and rear eves I stopped having a problem.

    10 round groups @100 yards, 40 seconds each string of 10. The 2nd photo is some Swiss 150grn surplus training ammo. Covering a verification shot to make sure it was close enough to POA from the M80 zero. Given that it's cheaper than new brass, I think I'm going to stack it deep.
