    Center Finder Jig

    Aloha, Its simple and easy . Many should find it very useful . MDF is good , if you have it . The dust from it can be harmful , so watch out . A more lasting model even in MDF could be made with its edges sealed with crazy glue to make the edges more tough or just make it out of Carbon Graphite .But simple is always Good .Aloha from Oahu ,Mark Baker

    11 Unusual Uses for Baby Oil

    Aloha P.J.,That 1 of the things as to why some people don't like to eat smoked 'tongue' ,too . They don't like to taste something that's tasting them right back. Now disabled ,darn vertigo  24/7 ,knocked me off the breadwinners list a year ago . So now , after fighting back and getting back to work , after 6 years of being disabled from a accident , this time it seems I'm home bound for good . The vertigo has made me determined to find or come up with a way to 'do it' with no power tools from home . Going from a shop an acre in size to a back yard garden shed and a nice flat concrete floor to an uneven yard side hill [all that there is], makes you spend more time taking out and putting away tools than working with them .    Some of the items that I focus on the ...

The vertigo has made me determined to find or come up with a way to 'do it' with no power tools from home . Going from a shop an acre in size to a back yard garden shed and a nice flat concrete floor to an uneven yard side hill [all that there is], makes you spend more time taking out and putting away tools than working with them .    Some of the items that I focus on the most are Woodworking and how I can be productive now . When and if my prototypes 'pan out' , I'll send some photos of the tools so that anyone else that been sidelined also by vertigo or some other disabilitating mality , doesn't have to feel so wasted as to want to 'play cards with Elvis' , you don't want that ever ,he cheats [they say].Aloha for now,Mark Baker

    DIY Toolbag Organizer

    Aloha , very well round on tool needs per portability . Having gone from shops you could drive a semi through to just barely working and unplugged due to disability , it makes prefect sense to have just what the job needs ,instead of it and the kitchen sink , too . Keep those fingers , its hard picking someone else's nose for them . [still got all of mine] Aloha,Mark Baker

  • Folding Portable Workbench With Quick Release Vise

    This is the best in the outside world , it having only 3 legs . It can't rock n' roll , its finds its own stable footing . Since my encounter with vertigo 24/7 reduced me to sometimes bedridden and no longer the bread winner , all I can do is work unplugged at home . Gone are the warehouse sized shops I worked in now . Can't safely get around even in a 'production workshop' when you need canes . My boss was great , after my accident [TDI = $ 2.5 million while in a coma]and rehab took over , he held my possession at work for 5 years until rehab approved of my start back to work and things were going great after 10 months and then , wham !! , 24/7 vertigo hit when I was just sitting at a bus stop . That's now over a year . But this bench you made looks like a winner for anyone puttering f...

That's now over a year . But this bench you made looks like a winner for anyone puttering for a quick job at home or out on a job , Great! A second bench to the side of the vise with a set of adjustable legs for leveling the surfaces of both benches to maintain a flat surface over uneven ground would be the next step and yet they could be taken down , to put away . Great shops are how you make them and how useful when you have to use the backyard under a fold-up canopy . Never sweat the big stuff ,when you have a job to do , brake the job down to the smallest useful phase and work all parts to where you can marry them together .Aloha Scott
