Looks kinda like a Wankel engine running.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

One very smart person thought this up. Amazing to watch.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Why not just buy the square holes and tack-weld them on?
Coming from a manufacturing background, I find this interesting. I'm going to forward this to my son who is a ME with a major manufacturer.

Watts bit. I heard of them a few years ago, but never found one (would love to try it).

So I've been asking for the wrong bit down at Ace Hardware. I've been looking for a square bit all this time!
