Things I have learned......(and will forget)

Things I have learned while playing in my garage...

1.) The clock in the shop doesn't work right. Its right when I go out there, but as soon as I come in the house, it never matches. The shop says 9pm, the house say 1 AM. I swear Honey!! 9PM!

2.) Tool Gremlins are mean spirited. I take time to pick all the tools up and put them away, but the Gremlins scatter them throughout the shop every night.

3.) Compressors: The big ole compressor you bought, that overloaded the pickup springs is now too small to handle demands of the cutoff wheel or die grinder.

4.) The airtools that only take 4 cfm, now take 40cfm

5.) The airtools which are designed for 120 psi REALLY RIP at 175 psi. That shouldn't make them do #4, should they?

6.) Even the most detailed plans for your garage in regards to air line piping ,electrical outlet placing, major power runs (compressor, furnace) are WAY TOO inadequate. This forces you to rip sheeting off walls to add more lines (hidden). Only to make you realize that after you buton the walls back up, you'll have to do it again.

7.) All those lights you put in, which make it look like an OR, are now inadequate when you put your heating ducts in.

8.) The shop that would "Never be too big" is way too small, and needs an immediate addition.

9.) You realize, buy looking at the contents of your shop, that you are addicted to hotrodding, and all facets leading to said addiction.

10.) You'd love to put down a new epoxy floorcoating, but can't because there is WAY too much stuff to move to apply it.

11.) HVAC ductwork SUCKS to install by yourself. Or even with help. I look like Edward Scissorhands gave me a massage, after installing the cold air returns. Did I say it sucks? It SUCKS!

12.) Once you install a lift, or get the shop set up good, you suddenly "find" friends. The same guys that were "busy" when you needed help....

Oh man, the garage should be considered an Educational Institution..Can I get a write off for that?

I really like no. 12 installing a lift will get you more "friends" than installing a new swimming pool.
