Well this morning I decided to finally set-up a cut some lock-miter joints on my router table. Eventually, I plan to use the joint on a small box, but today I just wanted to make a successful joint! [reasonable goal, no?]
So I move the router table out from the corner, raise the casters to position the table securely. [step one accomplished]
Then I run my finger across the table, and then a piece of wood. Sure enough the router plate needs to be adjusted. Go to get the Allen wrench.
Aaaaaaaa (buzzer sound) - where the heck are they! A while back, in a similar situation I went to HD and bought two nice sets (English and Metric) of allen wrenches. Now I can not find those or the myriad other ones I own. Obviously I gathered them ALL together and stored them safely!
In looking I rediscovered:
- 20+ slotted screwdrivers
- 20+ Phillips head drivers
- Five!!! Stud sensors
- 9 hammers
- 5 small (< 14") levels)
- Wrenches (open end, didn't even count them)
- So many type and size of pliers, diagonal cutters etc.
Well you get the idea!
RESOLVED: I will NOT go buy more Allen wrenches!
Am I alone in this constant time WASTE of looking for tools, supplies etc? Of accumulating multiples of things I don't need multiples of?
