That’s what I get for buying an $8 set of assorted countersink bits. First time using that one and SNAP! At least it was on a shop project and not for a client😅. . . Yeah it’s Monday but all that means is it’s another day to learn and accomplish something. I work pretty much 7 days a week, give or take a day here and there, and it’s taught me that everyday is essentially the same just with a new title page. It’s your job to come up with what that title will be , “ughhh Monday?” Or “hell yeah it’s Monday! Let’s get after it!” I could blame Monday for this broken bit but instead I take it as a lesson learned and move on! Monday’s just about over so for all y’all who woke up dreading Monday get ready to kick ass Tuesday and the rest of the week! . . #woodworking#mondaymotivation#shithappens#mindsetiseverything#dontbuycheaptools#learningeveryday
I bought the cheap version of these bits for a new project. “Standard” bits and filing were just taking too long, and made lopsided circles in my steel. These made really good and accurate circles, but are kind of terrible at getting started. #dontbuycheaptools#steel
This is what we call a lesson learned. Been thrashing on this car on my free days for about a month now, had an episode where the @northern_tool transmission jack came apart on me and dumped the transmission over on its side from about 2 feet up. Rather than continuing to bolt it up behind a ridiculously torquey big block Olds, I shouldhave dropped it and made sure that hairline I thought I saw was ok... #now I’m a few muffler hangers from putting her on the road and I noticed this. #dontbuycheaptools#upgradetime#damnitbobby
If anyone is interested I’ve got this #4stanley sweetheart smooth plane for sale or trade just inherited another one It’s really a nice plane but don’t have the need for three of them ! This one is literally brand new probably still have the box .....#dontbuycheaptools #stanleysweetheart
#fuck @pepboysauto impact tools!!! I now have a six inch @kobalt_tools extension I can't use because an adaptor sheared off with a breaker bar today. Before that you can see what the 18mm did on my impact gun, had to finish that job with my @craftsman_tools_collection really sad that every time I need to use something out of that case it breaks. No more, now they are #shittothrow lesson learned #dontbuycheaptools#onlyusedonce#worthless#wonderwhatscrappriceis
#dontbuycheaptools Doing some pipe threading on the hangers of an interior light, needed a new threader, should have driven the extra hour into town and bought #ridgid not #princessauto special. Not even one thread cut and this happens.
