I have to tell you guys again, I never heard of anything like this until just a year or two ago. "Oil" reduces friction but this "cutting fluid" helps with tapping, or cutting, or drilling, it's friggin amazing stuff!



I was cutting this 1/4" thick flat stock with my air saw and it was taking a bit, I put a drip of "Tap Magic" on it and wham it started cutting much faster, amazing!

It sure will save a drill bit. I need to try it with my saw.....

Hey John, I wonder if you have any advice for a situation. I need a part time coworker to stop talking to me, for good. Being blunt has had no effect. Suggest termination? Quit?

I think I'll try putting up a curtain or wall of some sort to block his view. Out of sight, out of mind approach. Probably will just cause more disruption. I ain't much of a gentleman but I need a gentle solution. That sticks. So I ask my dignified but always realistic friend.

Can you approach your friend, the owner, and have a conversation with him about how disruptive he is ? Maybe the owner can have a gentle conversation with the co-worker about talking less and not disrupting you. Maybe the other guy would actually get more done himself, as a bonus ...

I'm not a good "people" person myself and understand it's usually better to let a more diplomatic person handle a situation in a calm manner. I tend to just tell someone how much I can't stand all their blather and would they "please" shut the f up !!!!!

I have them here, too, but they are nowhere near as bold as what you describe. I hear them occasionally, and have a few pics from my trailcam.

LOL, Not sure I am the guy to give you advice on this one. I am usually the guy that doesn't know when to shut up!

Work place harmony is so important. Having to work with someone with hurt feelings is usually worse than it was to start with. No easy answer here but don't let your frustration cause you to leave a job working for a man you respect who, more importantly, obviously also respects you.

Good luck.

John

STATE GAME AND FISH released 500 about 8 years ago to help control deer population that was destroying crops and gardens,now the coyote population has gotten out if control,,so the game commission is offering $500 Bounty for the black ones and freehunting and fishing license for a kill of 5 or more ,drawing once a month,

the pups are about 5 or 6 weeks old so they are more aggressive trying to find food for the young.

That gets laughed off. The boss will send a man home for the day at the drop of a hat if he don't like whats going on. Whatever it might be. I made appropriate remarks to him. Loud dude showed up just now so I grabbed my sandwich, sat it on break table, went to wash hands and came to find his elbow parked right next to my food. Dammit. Its like be8ng tailgated but if you pull over they do to. I feel like Dennis Weaver in Duel.

Plinking nuisance coyotes with the M14 for a couple days sounds like fun.

I can count on you to be real, thanks. I am the same way but when I yack its as a break not a default behavior to maintain throughout the day. I guess I remember being excitable. I try not to bug Gary about people stuff.

Seems like somebody here ordered meats a few days ago... here they are, just in time for lunch. 335 wide in back and much work to do.

Just for John

here is the pic of the powered bead roller. I was a HF roller which was reinforced and then the power added using a drill motor and a flex plate and starter gear which I got out of the scrap pile. Works just fine but not pretty..

That is so simple it is super cool. I suspect it would be easy to remove the switch from the drill and add speed control down the road.

If I had not already done mine with the garage door opener, I would be copying you......Good stuff!

The drill motor I used is variable speed and reversible. One it is adjusted to the speed I like I just leave it and fwd or reverse as needed.. I can easily remove the drill motor and use it for a drill if I need to..

I've seen this posted somewhere before. Hows the torque on the cheap drill?

That particular drill motor is a gear reduction 1/2 inch drill motor. that thing will bust your arm if the bit gets stuck while drilling. plenty of torque for a bead roller even when adjusted to dead slow..
