Using one just like that each and every morning to wake up
Yeah, it's a problem. I think I need a 12-step program. I'll drink 2 or 3 double shots out of it back to back. It's enough caffeine to kill a horse.

I use heavy whipping cream. None of that half & half sissy stuff. Gimme that full fat "liquid butter"!
I run it through a Secura automatic milk frother.

OMG! The results are amazing! I didn't know coffee could taste so good.

Yeah, I drink probably a bit too much coffee myself, but hell I love the way it tastes being made with this thing . And I prefer it black

Felt a nagging pain in my index finger... no aparent wounds... pulled out the SwissCard Lite from my wallet to use the mag glass... turns out, there’s a splinter of some sort about the same diameter as a thin hair... pulled it with the tweezers...

I had to make a portable ferret cage, so I got a little tote and ziptied the stuff to it, but what makes that possible is using the awl on the pioneerX or farmer! It’s like turning through butter! Also had to put holes in the top too,

Is a ferret cage meant to hold some small animal?

First days carrying my new to me wenger grip, needed to pull a nail from a wine box with the extra challenge of not damaging the nail or the box, easier than i expected, the blunt nose pliers where a plus for this

I was very glad to have a CT34 in my bag today.
I had a patient for a retinal scan. This had to be a wide field scan, so I had to attach the lens.
Unfortunately the lock was tightened in the wrong direction and left the lens loose on the camera.
I MacGuyvered it loos by wrapping it in medical tape for grip. The CT34 cut the tape when I was done.

The lens in question is big and heavy. When I connected the lens the head of the camera slowly tilted down.
Which makes making a scan impossible as both the patient and the lens need to be kept still.
Luckily the bit driver of the CT34 proved helpful and tightened the slip on the camera and I was able to make some pretty scans.

I really like the bit driver. A very useful tool!

Did a strange thing today with my Forester. See somehow nobody gives a damn about the fact that not one flip chart paper roll in my life had ever been fitting the flip chart I used. The holes are always misplaced. Always no matter what the company, city or country that is. And therefore in order to properly install a paper roll you should drill the holes. Well you got the idea

The "early '60s 4-5 layer Vic" in my recent lot score turned out to be a 1957(8?)-1961 236maU (Ranger) and it's already earning its keep working on an old Marklin HO breakdown crane. I used the tweezers and the partially round awl (great as a marlinspike) to carefully pick a knot in the winch line, and then the tweezers again pull the winch line from the crank, then remove the rubber coating from a paper clip with the scraper on the bottle opener, so that it could be cut and shaped into a new pin to hold a piece.

This is why the pin needed to be replaced. The slots on this part fit into the missing pin, and the other end fits into the boom, so that the boom will remain raised at various positions.  Now to wait until the part arrives to finish the task.

I was oiling a sheath and used my Farmer (Farmer Friday!) to pop the lid of my grease can.



For those of you who can get this stuff (Huberd's Shoe Grease), I highly recommend it. It's a mix of Pine Pitch and Beeswax. It makes a great leather protectant and preservative. Apparently pine pitch resists rot and bugs and water. Bees wax...is just great stuff. The only downside is that the pine pitch smells smokey, like barbecue, and using this stuff always makes me feel hungry. Regardless, it works really well. Git some.

I was picking up some lumber yesterday and noticed a heavy-duty staple sticking out of the side of one of the pieces. Used my deluxe tinker to pull it out before I hauled it down onto my cart, and saved myself from a nasty gash.

For a while I had been thinking about switching to a smaller SAK without pliers, but this reminded me of just how handy they can be.

See, now that's the problem with this place. Always finding something new that I didn't know I need, then having to rush out and buy it!
