View Full Version : Gotta stop at Woodcraft

. . .on the way home from the day job today. Need a 3/8" tapered plug cutter. I have one somewhere, bought a whole set a while back. Managed to find the 1/4", 2 tapered 1/2", 1 nontapered 1/2" and a 5/8" tapered cutter, but the 3/8" just vanished. I even cleaned out the box I used to store under the TS which has all the little allen wrenches I've ever gotten with tools, a bunch of jig handles and screws and washers and nuts and some stuff I can't even identify. It had also accumulated about a pound of sawdust while sitting there. Found a 1/2", 5/8" and the 1/4" plug cutter in there.
Guess I'll pick up a bottle of thin CA and a can of accelerator. Anyone else need anything while I'm there? :)

Could you pick up some Half&Half on the way back? Also a box of Clementines, if they've got 'em at the Piggly Wiggly. :)

They're a dang sight better'n what passes for "navel oranges" these days, though, huh?

Just like most fruits and vegies, the tendency to pick them early so they ripen in transit has left a large part of a generation not knowing what ripened on the plant fruit and vegies can taste like. We try to get the Texas Oranges when they're in season. Guess they let them ripen a bit longer on the trees since they don't have to go so far. I also like picking up local produce from stands along the highway or farmers' markets when they're in season.

My new job will be a few stones' throw away from Woodcraft, so I think I'll be okay for a while, thanks. :+

So, is this new job one of em you gotta go to, or are they gonna let you stay home and work from there like your old one?
I had a vision problem this morning so called off from work. Just couldn't see being there. Spent the morning putting my resume together. Woulda been simpler if I coulda found the CD I saved the old one on when we got a new computer, but no luck. HAd to start from scratch.
This used to be a great job. Small unit, good supervisor, traveled the entire State. Then they expanded us, opened offices all over and our area has never had much work. On top of that, they have created a huge bureaucracy that has pretty much paralized the entire operation. They're more concerned over the process than the product and I've been goin nuts. Time to get away from government and get out in the world of reality. Maybe Insurance Fraud investigation.

Are they British? ;)
Good luck on the job hunt.

The former to start with. Hopefully a little of the latter after I get up to speed so I'm not commuting 5 days a week.

Nah, not Brits, former FBI folks. You know the bureaucracy that hadn't gotten around to lookin at the 9-11 folks, though they had info on at least one wanting to learn to fly, but not land an airplane.

Cool. Hope that comes around fast.
