« Part 4: Which handed saw? Part 5 of Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)... series Part 6: Snow/mud chains. »

Boys and Girls,

We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas of the past (so far)….

Created these ”buffing wheels” out of paint rollers to use on the lathe,

The one at the front has some splattering of wax that took me minutes to distribute in patches. The other 2 have never seen any action.

They were created for a Jet mini-lathe… Hell, with luck they might feature worse on the Nova!

Stupidity was not in buying expensive mohair rollers but in NOT using the lathe as a spray painter!

Those were the days when I was just rich and wanted to be richer. Now I can afford painters and not just the rollers.
