    Wife wants to do a craft project...adding brass legs to a table...
    I KNOW she wants to do this on her own and if I say anything I face wrath...So I make coffee and breakfast and sit back..
    Hardware that came with the legs has 3/4" wood screws...This will not work with 1/2" wood so I tell her the type of wood screw to get 1/2" steel...I have one laying around, show her the depth with the thickness of the legs and they will be just right..
    She goes to the hardware store and comes back with 1/2" brass because they look nicer and match the legs (that will be attached through the bottom so...)
    I say "Ok, watch out because brass is real soft, and tends to strip so go easy with the driver"
    She's ready to pre-drill the holes for the legs. I say "Probably use the 5/32..." She decides on using the 1/16 quick change hex bit for my Dewalt impact driver...I'm of the opinion that based on the hardware she's pre-drilling for that she'll need at least 5/32 but hey...not my project...
    She's screwing in the brass on the first leg...strips out the first 2 screws...
    "These stupid things are just shredding..."
    sshhhh....
    Now I have to go back to the store and get more
    Mind you hardware store in 5 min away...
    Comes back with more screws...
    Next 4 holes being pre-drilled
    on the 3rd hole she snaps the bit in half...
    "What? The stupid bit broke"
    did you hit any metal or anything...

    So now she goes back to the hardware store to get another 1/16 bit
    "Ok, make sure you get the hex quick change bits..."

    Comes back 15 min later with the new bit set..
    Dewalt...
    She immediately opens the bits...
    WHat the? Where's the adapter for these?
    [​IMG]



    Um...I don't have a bit chuck adapter for that...those are for a regular drill..

    Maybe use the 5/32" for now and figure that out later...

    5/32" works perfect...

    Many moons later she's finally done..ish...
    and now I add a 1/4 keyless chuck to my christmas list to go with my new drill bits...

    there's no better feeling than getting buzzed by some bird unexpectedly and the mood goes from chill to holy fuck wheres my gun. especially when you cant see shit in the early mornming. thats part of the reason people get hooked on duck hunting, the adrenaline rush is like no other.

    i've had a close call with a seagull before, and sand pipers....little shits look just like teal sometimes. and they fuckling looooove to buzz overhead. we used to get flocks by the hundreds in our ponds

    thats a round about way of getting a new set of bits, at least your 5/32" will be nice and sharp for your next project

    Boy,
    AMEX REALLLLY wants me to pay interest...
    upload_2021-12-12_15-9-57.jpg
    Stop paying your balance every month


    Right after I put $3K on it for the car down payment...coincidence???

    I actually think in 9 months 12.49% might beat inflation

    I have a chase sapphire card that I used to love
    I “thought” it has some great perks like the dash pass and Amazn prime for free


    but
    I just ditched it for a navy federal flagship card.
    beat the sapphire in every category plus some

    I typically don’t use a debt card unless I’m at the bank
    Gotta get them points

    For years Discover has been sending me the pre-approved personal loan offers. Every year the amount goes up and the APR goes down. I keep thinking about how another $50K on GTii in the play account might not be a bad thing. lol

    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    It's common practice to use the steel screw first, as if it were a tap. Then the brass screw will also go in easier. Good hardware that comes with brass screws should also include a steel screw for this sole purpose


    Also, use bar soap or candle wax as a lubricant for the screw.

    And finally if the only time you will actually see the screw is when it is installed, (i. e. when the piece is upside down) , then what should it matter what material the screw is made off.

    Well there's always derivatives. lol

    I've had Discover for 20 years now. They are the only company I bank with that I have never had an issue with. Not once have I had to call CS to bitch about something. It's pretty impressive actually.

    I copied this post from the Kentucky thread. One of the members posted some of the devastation.

    Well
    If you really wanna interest your self

    just think….
    China has a way more advanced version of HARP than we do…
    And it’s been theorized that they would weaponize it if we gave them just cause

    200 miles of continuous touch down is extremely uncommon

    Man, Kentucky isn’t exactly tornado alley.
    This is an odd time of year for us to get them, normally it’s earlier in the year.


    Edit: I googled it,
    This hasn’t happened in Kentucky in over 95 years
