Thank you  :hatsoff:  My OHT is brand new too, so I was treated with the same thing.  Definitely black oxide residue.


Not just coffee... very strong coffee 🥰  It's so strong, it might not be classified as coffee anymore  :rofl:

 :rofl:  My office co-worker a  former Marine would arrive when arrived first, would make coffee!, it was not coffee it was paint remover.

Was so strong, no need to rinse your cup clean when drained!!!

Other staffers, bought a coffee maker with a timer, so it brewed the pot before opening.  So coffee way pot was  ready on arrival.   Our Marine did not concern himself with this strategy, he moved the other coffee maker across the break area, made it his way! Justified this by saying that boss liked his coffee (me😵‍💫)!

He liked me!!!  After a couple weeks that coffee maker broke, was not replaced, may still be in my garage  :whistle:
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Day 2

Before being able to comfortably use the OHT, I had to spend some time rubbing off what was possibly black oxide residue?  :dunno: 
It was a bit greasy, but now it is better.

Totally normal for black oxide treated tools. I usually wipe new BO tools off with some Ballistol  :salute:

Hello to the team. Wishing a great 2024 for all in MTO land.
I  need to apologize profusely for lack of pics. I left on a road trip in bit of a rush ( all good) and only left home with an Arc and a Micra. The OHT is still on the shelf. I  will back home Thurs (EST)  and can post up some missing pics then. In the meantime I will use Arc pics as placeholders. I hope this is acceptable to the team.
I will also set up a GAW for those who contributed to piggy Bank in jan.

 :cheers:

Bonus entry day 2.

A package arrived and I was able to use the blade from the OHT.  I absolutely love how the sharp edge is along the edge of the outside of the tool, not facing in.  :tu:

Interesting McStitchy and FB!  Both opening packages, and select different blades.

I wonder if I've been using the wrong blade to open packages?  :think:

I do not believe there is a wrong answer.

I always select a plain edge blade for cutting tape, it is easier to clean glue residue from the blade edge when done.

If opening a box that has been glued or strapped secured, the serrated blade handles the cardboard easier and same for straps. 

PS:  If second layer not present under flaps, cut with blade up. Do not want to cut the contents. 🙄

It is my view that the strap cutter is two thick to slip easily  between layers that are taped together to always be as effective as either the PE or serrated blade.

Just as some knife blades are good at slicing and others are good at chopping.

Day 3: Put the caster on our sliding screen door back on the track.

A tool use I have perform on my back slider occasionally after my size 13  catches the bottom edge.


:rofl:  Sounds like my kind of guy!!

He was a character.  Gruff yet gentle, a stare that could make your knees tremble, wrong doers wet themselves, and a laugh and smile that would win over a room full of 2 year olds.

A Marine, who was a Drill instructor at Paris Island and promoted after his first session, (he was to tough on the girls he says), then charged with RECON training, endurance development.

AND, he was his communities SECRET SANTA for as long I knew him, providing utility relief, meals, gifts and even funding the elementary dinner/theater, also, 5th grade annual field trip Chicago’s Fields Museum of Science and Industry.

He NEVER accepted a dinner invite, saying he was to busy, yet the office every morning at 6AM as the crews prepared for the days routes.

Yes, he was likeable, only if he wanted you to like him.

If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!

Hope yours is as good!

Cold , hovering at freezing, but DRY this morning.

A walk this morning, sunrise detected only because the cloud cover  turned from a DARK Grey, to. Light grey!

The OHT saw expect to be used for trimming overhanging tree branches I have been avoiding!  But, the city had come through and did a lot of pruning…

So, I took this picture, reminds me of the hay barn on the farm next door to where I grew up and worked  no for many years.   My mom still lives in the house I grew up. But, the barn is gone, and all other structures, as the property was all willed to the Nature Center to be protected from developers.  Was just there last Friday visiting mom.
If I start and end the day above ground, it is a good day!
