Got out there for a little more cleaning. Also studying my "die" for my cowl, I need to make it a little thicker with another sheet of 18 gauge to get the proper thickness.

Feely a little guilty because I didn't get any work done on the truck today. Which is the first day I didn't since November 1st. But I was needed to get some of the items related to our April move to the east coast done. Oh well tomorrow is another day.

Well tonight I got out there and trimmed down a piece of 18 gauge to thicken up my "die". Today at work, it did't start out so well.

You could make quick work of it if you had a router. you could make a wood hammer form, You just need to just make a step, right?

Yeah it sucked, but I did get my box better organized putting back together.

It's a POS Harbor Freight box and way toooo top heavy. I will NOT be pulling it the way I did anymore that's for sure. I learned my lesson with not having more than one drawer open years go, that cost me about $500 when my MAC box fell over and damaged a few drawers.

This POS is doing an ok job for me, what's funny is I can grab ONE combination wrench from the box that cost me more than the box! LOLOL

Yeah I am thinking you are right. But did you see the photos on post number 15120 on this thread? That came out pretty sweet and it was my first try. After seeing all the great metal fab work around here I thought I would give it a try. I could have done what I comfortable with and just hammer it out and file it and get it close and skim coat it with filler and it's a done deal. God knows this is not metal fab art car I am doing. But I thought I would try something new and this is looking pretty good so I will continue.

No kidding, once the box was back on the wheels, half those tools would be on the other side of the shop...

I don't do that sort of thing, they cost too much. Funny story on that, have I ever done it, yeah, and I learned my lesson.

I was buffing a car with an electric buffer in my shop. I had already replaced the switch in it once, and it was almost new. It was a quality tool like a Milwakee or something like that. They had sent me the switch for free and I was using it once more. Well all of a sudden the thing stopped, DAMN, I had to get that car done as the customer was picking it up. I was not happy and in a rage I swung it as hard as I could into the concrete wall that was right beside me. In mid motion with this heavy tool in my hand heading towards certain death I happened to see my heat lamp across the shop was out........I had blown a circuit breaker! The rocket had been shot, there was no turning back and I slammed the buffer into the wall. I went and unplugged the light and flipped the breaker and came back to buff, hit the switch and got a Guuuuuurrruuuuuu sound, I had bent the armature!

Yeah, after stuff like that I suck it up and get on with work when something like that happens.

Brian
