Those are my dead-nuts-just-like-each-other blocks. I won't call them 1-2-3 blocks because they're a few thou under. If'n you meant under the wrapper of the cooler, it's a Diet Pepsi can.

******** Better to have your 1-2-3 blocks a bit under, they are always getting in the way when they are to size. The stuff you grind is usually finished right at those sizes, so when you use them to block stuff in you got hitting em on your mind. A few grand under and that goes away.

Pick a box that shows us who you really are. ;-)

******* Shit my toolbox is literally spread out over a 10 mile radius. I really need to get a pickup truck one of these days.

Hmm this one requires some thought & photo shoot prep. I'll work on that.
I've posted these before with those stupid holders all over. There was a discussion on what people across the country & world call their tool box: roll around - roll away- I call mine "junk box". Hell nobody will know what half this shit was for once I'm gone. But I know where everything is. Its scary. Hey buddy is that a Graver in your box? What the hell's that for? Ya just do'in some hand scraping & flowering......... nothin out of the ordinary.

I have taken individual drawer shots for my personal record of inventory. Things seem to disappear over the years....... bastards, taking a liking to unique items. that never happens. Its nice working in a 3man shop now. no 2nd shift, the place is secure, dont have to gather,put away& lock every day. =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D=3D= =3D=3D=3D=3D ______ /_____/\ Best Regards, /____ \\ \ Gil Pawl /_____\ \\ / HOLDZEM=A9=AE /_____/ \/ / / /_____/ / \//\ West Chicago, IL \_____\//\ / / USA \_____/ / /\ / \_____/ \\ \ \_____\ \\ \_____\/

The top box of one of my roll around sets of Kennedys (pretty sure they're USA made, 'cause they're 45 years old) has a family of wrens in it. We kept seeing the mother flying in and out of the shop and finally saw her light on the box. 3 babies in the nest.

So what's that thing with all the tubes aiming every which way?
A mortar for blasting everybody?

No. This is a job I just finished and had sitting there to do some debouring. Part of a satellite. Jerry

Yes I did. That part may look nice on the outside but inside was even more challenging. The whole thing is hollowed out thru all those tubes using 6" long 0.5" lollipop cutter. 0.03" to 0.09" walls with 0.001" to 0.005" tolerance all over. I wish I could post few pictures and videos I took but I think it should not even be on this picture. I will ask my boss today if it would be ok to share few photos. Jerry
Cool looking part Jerry. Did you make it on that DMG in the background of the other pic?
