Story
Introduction
I'm Patrick Cambria from Middletown New Jersey. I fix things for a living. If I cant fix it chances are it's not broke yet. Give me a minute with it and I will find a way to do both.

Remote control all the things... I needed 2 for my workbench over head lights. I don't know what I'll use the other 3 for.

I keep meaning to set my lathe up for wrapping coils.  Thanks for reminding me.

I can understand not allowing photo comments on other people's posts but I should be allowed to add follow up photos to my own posts.

Harbor Frieght quality. I have to put 1/2 inch shim under a perfectly level bench to level the platform on the drill press.

Earlier I posted asking about the banana jacks on this light meter I picked up off ebay. BK Precision answered my question. They are solely to hold the detachable sensor to the meter and they have no electrical connection .
I feel that's a very strange / poor choice of a design. It looks like something you can plug into a multimeter or power supply. I guess they just have a bazillion banana jacks on hand and saved money using them.

Yeah, using banana jacks is weird.  I think I would have chosen something that doesn't mean 'electrical connection' to every single person who will ever use this.

New LED shop lights for the bench. Oddly the photos with the bench lights on make the garage look dark and the picture with both shop lights off make the shop look lit up but the garage lights were on in all photos.

Yeah, that's a bit annoying. But i found it. Wow. Really delicate stuff, that T1.

So this is the T1 torx that came in my $270 Wiha ESD safe master technician set today. I'm hoping I can just get a new T1 sent and not have to ship back the entire set.

They must have hardened it in this bent form. You can't bend hardened steel that much without breaking it, especially not when it's that thin. Just looked at my smallest Torx, a T3, and i don't think it would survive even half that angle without breaking. Okay, it's cheap China stuff.

Hope you get a replacement without problems or discussions.

More on the fly wood working with scraps and no planning. I created this nice high stand for the drill press. I also upgraded the electronics bench to a peg board back.

Not a bad bench for a days work and about $150 at home depot.

It might be worth soaking the Weller in deionized water a couple of times.
