I made a disk sander spin the wrong way ;) imagine when you forget.
Platten sucked (bent) so slack it is.
Someday; I will find a knife sharpener that works.

Should have been my first post, to much detail;
I was paid and turned free with a idea explaining a problem Pacific Power had.
Given a tour with Both companies engineers, and a few extras dressed pretty
I was given a cocktail napkin drawing to work with. Then a few cards when our engineer found another job.
Pacific Power called a few years later,
I declined a multi million dollar deal because the company I worked for was too busy to build
& I didn't want to move :thinking:
Someone else was buying the rest of the parts, equipment, personal, transportation, property & Labor, while I supervised.

No , It does look like one in a Italian machine that kicks out 40,000 capsules per Hour in the Pharmaceutical Industry though, The guys that tune them are a hoot and are pampered like you can't imagine. Some part replacement tuning requires shipping the machine.
I learned a lot about these machines; Their dailey rate was phenomenal, And a klunk in one got you fired :shock:
Ordering parts for these were easy if the part # matched everything / My boss tried to order a part for some place? That only had one, we had 8 I wouldn't.
They Weren't making payments, Wrong # s Got caught :applause: Jackass
We Had Machines the Very large Breweries have and will not touch (Liabilities) only run them; There are few techs, that were Kida a hoot, but very similar story.
Except ordering parts from Germany :roll:

One of my Employes was a R/N & I worked with a DR.
I signed papers and can't say what they feed me. :R

Next guess only for what this is / Does before, I show another picture?

I just finished six more raised bed gardens. I’ve built 18 of these (14 this size) for us, some friends, and our church since May. Building stuff is a good way to keep sane during the pandemic.

These TV trays is what I was making this month in the shop.
The woods in the TV tray tops are quarter sawn Shedua/Ovangkol as the center with 1/4" of figured Maple and the outer edges are Canary wood.
There's a small amount of Purple Heart as part of the mechanism instead of the customary metal used in trays.
The legs are American Walnut and the finish is Conversion Varnish.
The 5th tray is for Jane's sewing room.
We will save the old store bought trays to use with the teardrop if the need arises.
:D Danny
