After wasting away an entire weekend without drilling so much as a single hole, I took Wednesday off to get after it. With my vise squared up and plenty of cutting fluid at my disposal, I set my references and set to drilling.
Unfortunately, I immediately starting flinging chips and razor sharp coils of steel all over the garage...where my kids walk around in their bare feet and my dog likes to stroll. I guess this is not exactly your typical machine shop environment.
I stop again to regroup and consider methods to reduce the spread of debris...
The wife's toothbrush isn't going to help this time, but...I wonder if she'll miss some Tupperware
If you're an actual machinist, I apologize wholeheartedly for this. If I were to try this in a real shop, I'd be coated in DYKEM Tool Die and chased out of the shop with a fork truck, but here in the privacy of my garage, it worked perfectly.
I'm ashamed. I wonder how long my wife will go before she notices.
