DIY tools and their true uses

I can personally verify a few of these rarely acknowledged truths. Fortunately, I’ve managed to avoid permanently altering my anatomy…so far. Minor cosmetic damage only. 🙂

SKILLSAW: A portable cutting tool used to make boards too short.

BELT SANDER: An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs.

WIRE WHEEL: Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, ‘Oh shoot’. Will easily wind a tee shirt off your back.

DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it.

What comes next will SHOCK you! (Not really. But it will make you laugh.) Read it at Chris, the Story Reading Ape’s blog.
