Default I Need To Go Back To Work - Soon!!

the title sez it all, I need to go back to work, soon!!, I can't afford to surf the internet all day. Between, Craiglist, sales brochures (MSC/Enco, Shars, Whloesale Tools, etc), the local swap sites, banner ads, forum links and carrier pigeon messages.

I'm severely bored, the only break in the boredom, has been Youtube videos (This Old Tony, Tom's Techniques and some others), that and the pain killing drug induced semi-comatose afternoons, where I wake up from my naps to go to sleep.

Maybe my judgement has been altered, my tool purchasing has escalated to alarming levels. Here is the short list of stuff, I've ordered, acquired and/or somehow arrived

150 - Valenite CCMT 21.51 uncoated inserts ($50)
50 - 16ER A G60 Carballoy threading inserts ($50)
3 - boring bar sets ($100)
2 - 5 hp Inverter VFDs
1 - Schaublin 13 milling horizontal/vertical machine, lots of like new horizontal cutters, 3 mill vises, 3 ER collet x Cat30/ISO30 arbors (ER16, ER 25, ER 32, with scads of collets. ($5500)
1 - Victor 14 x 40 lathe (very similar to the 14 x 40 Jet, I already have) ($3000)
3 - Tons (yes, tons) misc Grade 8 hardware (nuts, bolts, washers, etc) ($500)
9 - 5 gallon pails of drills, end mills, lathe tools, taps, dies, clamps, R-8 collets, carbide inserts and who knows what, (factory closing) ($500 in cash, small bills in a sealed envelope)

Another 3-4 weeks of this, I'll have to sell the wife and the dogs to have food on the table.

I know you are a resourceful guy but were you not complaining about lack of space in the tool room ?

yep, The mill and the lathe will end up in the basement, after I clean 8-10 tons of crap out of it.

Man, I feel sorry for you.
An advanced and possibly fatal infection of toolitis.
Your body may be found crushed between stacks of tools, or buried under tons of bolts if something falls over.
Do you have a will?













Am I in it?

Wow, a Schaublin! Got pics? Some of the Victor lathes were pretty good. I came close to getting a 16 x 40, I think it was.
