Default "What is it?" #33

I have had a few people send comments and I want to thank them for the ideas!

Remember this is your forum and any way we make improve things is going to make it a better place for all of us.

For this "What is it?" we are going to try something different in how we get the winner...... So read this..........

The winner will not be announced for at least a day. When I do return to announce the winner I will see how many posts we have then ask my wife for a number between 1 and the total number of posts. I will then go to that number and see if the answer is correct, if it is then that will be the winner. If the answer is not correct or complete enough I will ask for another number and so on until the winner is found. So if you post first or last that will not count.... it will be a random pick by someone who has not see your posts or know your names/handles.......

OK I hope that is clear.

Remember not just the name.... give details as to how you use it or what it does and this time it might not be the first write answer it might be the 10th or "nnn" depending on the number of answers posted...... I will check sometime after 24 hours so you have at least that amount of time to do your entry.

Good luck.... and for this one the winner will get 100 points!

Ed

For use with your mortise machine to cut square holes for various mortise and tenon joints.

Mortise bit used also in drill press for achieving "square or rectangular" holes. Drill bit leads the way and "chisle" squares up the sides of the "hole". Of course it can also be used in a dedicated mortise jig or machine.

A Mortise Chisel. This part of the mortise bit creates the square edges of the mortise. The drill bit that would hog out the centre of the mortise seems to be missing in this photo or is simply withdrawn into the centre of the chisel portion.

The mortise bit would be used in a drill press (with a mortise attachment) or in a dedicated mortising machine.

Hi Ed: It's a mortice chisel and bit. It can be used in a drill press with a morticeing
attachment or dedicated mortice machine. The drill bit in the picture is withdrawn and does not show except for the end that is normally locked into the chuck. A an aside from this I once was in a Woodworkers Wharehouse Store, and someone was complaining that he bought a chisle an bit set and could'nt get it to work, it turned out that he tried to lock the chisel portion into his drill press chuck. He did 'nt have
a mortice attachment,so the chisel would cut a pecuiliar hole and then break. It was
very hard to keep a straight face at that point.

Did they person at the Woodworkers Warehouse Store actually replace it, or send him packing?

This is an email I got yesterday that reminds me of this story.....

Ed

Supposedly this is a true story from the WordPerfect helpline. Needless to say, the help desk employee was fired; however, he/she is currently suing the Word Perfect organization for "Termination without Cause."
Actual dialogue of a former WordPerfect Customer Support employee with a caller:
Customer Support (CS): "Ridge Hall computer assistant; may I help you?"

Caller (C): "Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect."

CS: "What sort of trouble?"

C: "Well, I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away."

CS: "Went away?"

C: "They disappeared."

CS: "Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?"

C: "Nothing."

CS: "Nothing?"

C: "It's blank; it won't accept anything when I type."

CS: "Are you still in WordPerfect, or did you get out?"

C: "How do I tell?"

CS: "Can you see the C: prompt on the screen?"

C: "What's a sea-prompt?"

CS: "Never mind. Can you move the cursor around on the screen?"

C: "There isn't any cursor, I told you, it won't accept anything I type."

CS: "Does your monitor have a power indicator?"

C: "What's a monitor?"

CS: "It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV. Does it have a little light that tells you when it's on?"

C: "I don't know."

CS: "Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord goes into it. Can you see that?"

C: "Yes, I think so."

CS: "Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's plugged into the wall."

C: ".......Yes, it is."

CS: "When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two cables plugged into the back of it, not just one?"

C: "No."

CS: "Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other cable."

C: ".......Okay, here it is."

CS: "Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into the back of your computer."

"I can't reach"

CS: "Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?"

C: "No."

CS: "Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?"

C: "Oh, it's not because I don't have the right angle - it's because it's dark."

CS: "Dark?"

C: "Yes - the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in from the window."

CS: "Well, turn on the office light then."

C: "I can't."

CS: "No? Why not?"

C: "Because there's a power outage."

CS: "A power... A power outage? Ah, Okay, we've got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your computer came in?"

C: "Well, yes, I keep them in the closet."

CS: "Good. Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it up just like it was when you got it. Then take it back to the store you bought it from."

C: "Really? Is it that bad?"

CS: "Yes, I'm afraid it is."

C: "Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?"

CS: "Tell them you're too stupid to own a computer."

#5 was the chosen number and your answer will do for the 100 points!

As a side light I took a intro woodworking class in HS and I had never seen anyone drill a square hole..... After that I always wanted to be able to do that soooooooo
