Although primarily a wood butcher, manytimes my shop floor shows more plastic/metal/etc shavings and dust than it does sawdust.

My work takes me into many different materials, many different methodologies, technologies, and the weirder it is the more funner it is.

Primarily a cabinetmaker, that oftentimes takes me into realms bizarre. Drywalll, circuit tracing, and to top it off, my hobbies are tool related! Got a hankering for jewellers, machinistss, And that probably means I aloso collect tools, whether practical or not, mostly because I never know when I'll actually have to use them.

I am not only a "user" but a tool junky.I love the higher gizmocity old tools much to my wife's chagrin.

but I also love the modern truly creative tools

Eric, I saw a post where you mentioned Western Polymers for re-coating Makita 2040 rollers. I need to have mine re-coated and just wanted to know how your re-coated rollers are performing? Is there a specific durometer rating I should be requesting -I cannot find any specs on what the original ones were.
Thank you

Have your say...
