    Default Why buy it for $1 when I can make it myself for $100.

    Like many of the members here, I have made items as as way of improving my
    welding skills.

    Recently, some friends came over to the garage for beers and a tig repair job on a snowblower.

    Afterwards, I showed them a few of my projects and the comments were:

    "Too much time on your hands"
    "Need to get a life"
    "Too much money in your wallet"
    "Should get out more - call us, we'll help"

    (Beer loosens the tongue better than truth serum.)

    Ouch ! - and this winter didn't help as I have been snow-bound a bit.
    Took a look around the garage and decided to have a bit of fun.
    April is coming and in keeping with the tradition of April 1, here are some of my projects.

    1 - nut cracker
    All stainless and based on a reloading press mechanism along with a cheap solution and a free solution

    2 - litter box scoop - stainless steel versus plastic

    More to follow as I can only include 5 photos per post.
