Re: WHAT DID YOU DO IN YOUR SHOP TODAY

My little shop project, today, is facing and drilling some aluminum spacers for my daughter. Her lathe is temporarily out of service.
I would like to unload my new to me steel cabinet. I will wait for my son to get home. This is a two person job.

The electric drive motor in my wife's paper shredder let the smokie out. I kept the waste bin and took the shredder head to the shop. It took about 15 minutes to make a drive adapter for the shredder. I mounted it in my Myford Super 7 lathe and ran the shredder head at 3250 rpm. It made a droning sound like a jet engine powering up. After amusing myself with turning a few sheets paper into dust, I got out my Shop Vac and cleaned up the area. 93384
At 3250 rpm, the shredder started to come apart on the aluminum foil. :t3717:

That sounds like fun! I had a paper shredder a while back that started arcing. Never thought to experiment around with it. Just got rid of it quick before it set the house on fire.

Re: WHAT DID YOU DO IN YOUR SHOP TODAY

Several Years ago, I bought all of the small parts bins from a warehouse. They were making "big" changes. There were hundreds of bins. I bought enough bins to fill the canopy and box of my truck , the back seat and the passenger side. My son counted over 400 parts bins.
I sold a bunch of the odd bins and kept the others. Today, I decided to try the in storage bins in my cabinet. I bought it a week ago. It is always a good thing when there is a good fit.
I found some perfect fit ACRO MILLS bins on Amazon this afternoon. These bins will be here in the next few days.
It will be transfer time from the old bins to this unit.
I can get 20 of the 6X4 inch bins in the five spaces in each drawer. I have some ACRO MILLS 12X4 inch bins coming.
