Save an old LVT from being scrapped by the city of Buffalo. There's 3 that appear to be in working condition and another 4 that are used for parts. Unfortunat...ely I don't have space for something like this right now. I know there's a few people in here that would love to grab one of these up.
Here I am, back at it! I am working on a few new things for my shop. Please take a minute to look at my shop on Etsy and honestly let me know what you think could be better. (photographing is on the schedule to fix)
Here is a row counter I think you all will love! No Magnets! here is an instructional video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6aGmGegB_1Y

Please don't tell my Mom, she would kill me!!! (bare with me, there is a CSM connection here) I have not been able to make socks or play with my machine in a wh...ile. I, like most of you, have had a lot of house and work things going on. My latest has been to replace the front wheel bearings on my niece's car. (Side note: I am Jack of all trades and master of none. Woodworking, socks, triathlon, cars, home renovation. You name it, if I needed it done, I taught myself, mostly). I started on this project, cussing the process. This can be as frustrating as ribbing for the first time, by yourself. I get into it and several things go wrong and need more attention (fixing) than I wanted to put into it. I am not going to describe the process but at some point, I have to press the bearings out of the assembly. I got to this point after SEVERAL hours of work. I get one part out, no problem. The next step has a lot larger piece to be pressed out. Now how, in the ever lovin' God, did I do this the last time (The neice and I have the same vehicle so I have done this once (twice) before)? I searched and searched and then it hit me! I thought 'this is wrong' and then I thought about all of you that I have met and witnessed your improvised tools and accessories and figured "no biggie'. Problem: The bearing to be pressed out was bigger than my largest socket (36mm). I don't want to spend more money on a one use tool. BANG! sock weights are perfect! For all the spouse who say your machine and/or gear isn't really useful other than your socks, here ya go. Sock weights are perfect press plates for a 2007 Honda Crv front wheel bearing. (to be honest, I was afraid it would explode under 12 tons of pressure, being cast iron and all)
