I knew I would need an 1/8 gas blanking cap for when I removed a gas fire in my flat. This was going to be some time in the future. I found one in a box and then put it aside "safely". When I needed it 18 months later it was nowhere to be found, surprisingly. It was only when I stripped out my kitchen that I found it, on a small corner shelf on a kitchen cupboard, by the sink, and clearly on display. I must have looked at it hundreds of times whilst standing at the sink but did it register? Of course not  :Doh:

Ha ha, reading these posts was fun. The key words seem to be "Safe Place". In my experience a dangerous place to put anything you want to find later   :lol:

   In my case I bought 10 or 12 30mm diameter diamond coated cutting /grinding disks. They arrived in a nice blue plastic envelope with clear plastic front. "Don't need em just yet", says I so put them away safely.
     So, I bought another lot because I couldn't find them when i did need em. Thought that I would find the first lot when putting the new arrival away. Nope, stuck the new lot on the door of my rotary tool cupboard and they are in plain view.  First lot? Still looking.

  Alas the video seems too close for comfort.

I am a Seenager. (Senior teenager)

I have everything that I wanted as a teenager, only 60 years later.

I don't have to go to school or work.

I get an allowance every month.

I have my own pad.

I don't have a curfew.

I have a driver's license and my own car.

I have ID that gets me into bars and the wine store.  I like the wine store
best.

The people I hang around with are not scared of getting pregnant, they
aren't scared of anything, they have been blessed to live this long, why be
scared

And I don't have acne.

Life is Good! Also, you will feel much more intelligent after reading this,
if you are a Seenager.

Brains of older people are slow because they know so much. People do not
decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall facts because
they have more information in their brains, scientists believe this also
makes you hard of hearing as it puts pressure on your inner ear.

Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full, so too, do
humans take longer to access information when their brains are full.

Also, older people often go to another room to get something and when they
get there, they stand there wondering what they came for.  It is NOT a
memory problem, it is nature's way of making older people do more exercise.

SO THERE!!

I have more friends I should send this to, but right now I can't remember
their names.  So, please forward this to your friends; they may be my
friends, too.

Well they've had it away with my stash of V engraving cutters  :bang:

I KNOW I had some tucked away somewhere - they a 1/8" shank carbide 90 degree V cutters - individual blue plastic caps to protect them - I've a feeling that they were TiN coated . . . where the heck are they  :scratch: :scratch: :scratch:

... I suppose I'm going to have to fork out for some more, but a quick google hasn't found a supplier, never mind a fairy with full pockets  :med:

Hi All

Does anyone else have workshop fairies?

Yup  :palm: So many things have dissapeared in my workshop its unbelievable  :doh:

About 5 years ago a chrome oil tank cap rolled off the saddle of its bike onto the floor
Since then I have cleared out the entire floor area to move lathes around but the oil cap is still missing ????

Last week I went to use a piece of steel plate to make a jig so an awkward shaped bike cylinder head could be mounted on a  head machine so it could have new valve seats fitted
Now I'm positive that I  had made such a jig plate before as I know that I had prevoiusly gotten the same job done ??
No sign of the steel plate ????  I persuaded myself that I must have given it away to someone???
Off to the local scrap recyclers place and got a piece of 20mm thick ally about 200 x 350mm
There were a couple of skips full of really handy looking pieces there, but I resisted stocking up  :drool:

Today as I was cleaning off the workbench I suddenly realised that I had used the steel plate to add load area underneath the "new" vice I got a while ago :doh:

They strike again.

Some time back I bought front wheel  bearings for my car as the old ones were starting to whine a bit.

The whining has developed into a steady drone. Quite frightening.

So, today being dry and not too cold I decided to change at least one side.

And I can't find the bearings.

Just spent two hours looking in my sheds.

I know they are in there somewhere.

But, as the consequences of a front wheel bearing collapse can be catastrophic I am going to have to go by some more, at 20 each.

And I know that as soon as I get beck home with the new ones the first lot will appear in a place I have already looked.

Damned gremlings.

Dave.

Not Windows fault (at least on this occasion) but the application / app designer's fault.

The App might default to saving there - if so that's rather bad design; you should never actually ever save anything you want there - that's in Windows volatile "Temp" storage - and well-behaved apps are meant to clean up anything they park in Temp when the application exits (and Windows will periodically clean-out any detritus that apps leave behind in Temp).  No user should ever have to go and do anything in Temp - and that's one of the reasons its hidden.  The reason you couldn't find it is possibly because the app had done as it was supposed to and deleted it when it exited!

I found old carpet stops stuff rolling too far and minimizes damage to tools.

I also got one of these extending magnet gadgets with a built in torch for $2 and that at least gives me a chance! If that fails the Cree torches with zoom function give LOADS OF LIGHT to allow you to curse in comfort when you can't reach it.

Spent ages once looking for v small screw which dropped onto floor. Magnets, torch, small children all deployed to no avail. Then looked in trouser turn up - bingo.

A little aside on the bearings I 'lost'.

On Sunday I set about fitting one side.

I don't have a press so I was committed to driving out the old bearing with a drift.

It was tight. So I was really laying into it when there was a sharp pain and blood was squirting everywhere.

And I do mean spurting. It was apparently coming from the little finger of my right hand; the one holding the hammer.
Problem was my hands were really black and oily. so first job is to clean them.
The sink was soon a bloody, oily mess as I had to wring my hands together to get the dirt away.
Got the hands clean and began looking for a huge laceration.
Blood still running, but can't find a cut.
Then found a tiny pin hole in the finger less than a millimeter wide.
Nothing in the hole. I couldn't believe so much blood could come from so small a wound.

Anyway my daughter taped it up and we went back out to finish the job.

I never found out where the shrapnel came from.

David, could it be that the head of your drift was mushroomed? Though how it flew from there to your little finger on the hammer handle I am at a loss as the forces should be downward. BUT, swarf and chips do amazing gymnastics at times.

Tape up and keep going sounds like a commitment to the project at hand.

John,

The drift head was the thing I suspected.  But it was ok, I'm careful to remove any mushrooming.

I think the bit must have bounced back from somewhere.

Do you remember the inimical Daniels from The Salvager ?

His motto was 'the only way to get a job done is to do it'.  And the bearing had to be changed. So, tape it up and think of England.

Years ago - decades ago - I used to walk from the Tube station to the Polytechnic where I was studying my 'A' levels, and it took me past a tool dealer - not absolutely sure but I think that it was a Buck & Hickman's. In the window they had a display of Moore & Wright measuring tools, and nestled in the middle was a No. 800 Thread Pitch gauge - the sort that folds out with lots of blades like a pen knife.

I coveted that gauge. I looked daily, and kept saying that I couldn't afford it - I was 16 at the time and funds were practically non existent  :(

Well one day I bought it - can't remember how I managed it, but I had it in my pocket for days  :clap:

Now that was 50 years ago, and I've used that gauge regularly measuring Imperial threads ever since - more recently (probably 15 years ago) I got a Metric version, but it's only Draper and nothing like the quality but it does the job.

On Monday I was using the M&W 800 - used it several times - I know EXACTLY where I was using it (at the lathe and at my bench) - went to get it out of the drawer on Tuesday - gone, vanished not a trace or even a note to say goodbye  :bang:

Since then I've turned the workshop upside down, the bench has never been more tidy, the lathe and it's surroundings have been given a spring clean, but no, not a trace, not a sign, nothing.

So rather reluctantly I've ordered another identical one on eBay, but I have an odd feeling of being disloyal  :med:

... so how long before the original comes back from it's travels, and settles back into it's comfortable lined drawer        :scratch:

Well that didn't take too long  :ddb:

I keep my measuring tools in an office type 5 drawer Bisley A4 unit. It occurred to me that it was entirely possible that when I closed the top drawer where they are kept, the gauge had been pushed 'over the top' and fallen behind the other drawers.

So, take the top drawer out, then the next etc and lo and behold 'down the back' were all sorts of lost goodies including a brand new 'Zeus' reference booklet that I'd not seen for weeks - BUT NO THREAD Gauge  :bang:

As I put the drawers back and got to the top one, hey, what's THAT jammed up in the fold that forms the side of the drawer? Yes, my poor innocent thread gauge - it hadn't been out on the town partying, it was where is should have been all the time. Ironic - I'd completely emptied the drawer searching previously, but as I'd not removed it I'd not seen it at the angle that revealed the stuck thread gauge  :lol:

are you sure SWMBO had not ,as part of a diabolic plan, carefully relocated it temporarily? "workbench never looked so clean" - always a bad move to let 'em see that. Gives them as sorts of ideas about tidiness being next top godliness ( see the irish dictionary for relevant entries ).

Glad it turned up eventually.

As a first aid  aside - always useful to have some 'steri-strips"in the workshop first aid kit . Pressure stops the bleeding and the steri strip binds the skin flap down.

Ian,

25 mm masking tape works pretty well as a temporary blood stop  :clap:

Managed to gash a knuckle with a Stanley knife this morning - got a first aid kit in the workshop, but no way can you get those silly modern sealed elastoplasts open with blood all over the place  :bang:

A turn of masking tape round the affected digit stemmed the flow, and when clotting started a more conventional fix could be applied  :lol:

I just hold a cigaette paper on it the bleeding stops and dries and forms a second skin that washes away later

Well I don't smoke, but I keep cigarette papers in the workshop for 'touching off' on the surface grinder. A small piece is moistened with saliva and stuck on the work. Then bring the wheel down gently until the paper is wiped off and you know exactly how close you are to the work.

Trouble is the wife steals them to clean the reeds of her Oboe mouthpiece  :lol:
