    So I decided to try out a Hunter blank I've had in my sketch book. Tried out my new little Bandsaw on the Swag table adapter and a foot switch. Worked awesome! Couldn't find my file guide so I used the one I made. Finished profiling the blank, cut the inital bevel in, then messed the whole thing up!! LOL!! I don't know where it went wrong but it did!! Then it happened my homade file guide broke. All I could do was laugh and exit the shop area! Done for the day!!

    There are those days where I think "Mr. Murphy" is riding around in my back pocket! :) On days like that, it's best for me just to walk out and lock the door behind me!

    I know those days and frustration well. But you are all right..........laugh it off and leave the shop. It'll be there tomorrow or when the time is right.

    The worst thing you can do is try to force it.

    Some days the stars line up and it's magical and you think you've been possessed by the spirit of an ancient Japanese swordsmith! .....The next day you can't drill a clean hole and you could break a piece of railroad track.

    Commiserations on the off day but pleased that I am not the only one to belong to that club.

    My brother used to call me and say..."Hey....Murphy's over at my place...if you have something risky to work on...you should jump on it right away..."

    Eventually we realized Murphy was a sextuplet...

    I have been blessed with a poor memory...I don't usually remember my mistakes...and I write down my AHHH-Hahhhh moments so I don't forget...lol.

    Y'all need to go to open mic night at the stand-up comic club. Murphy wrote the law, if something can go wrong, it will go wrong for me!! [​IMG]

    One of his other laws is that when a part falls on the floor, the ability to find it in whichever of the many nooks and crannies it might roll into is directly related to its importance and the difficulty of replacing it.

    Hey have y'all been spying on me, I have part that I dropped and has never been found and I moved pretty much everything looking for it!

    I have glasses stashed all over the place.
