A fun story...

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I was reading through a few threads and had a through process that made me recall something that happened about 8 years ago.

I was putting together a Goldberg Ultimate kit while away at school. I had a decent sized appartment, but no workbench. So, I went to Home Hardware to get a sheet of drywall to put on my kitchen table. (Most of you likely know that drywall makes a good working surfaces since it can easily be shimmed flat and holds T-pins nicely.)

Anyway, when the young man helping me at the store asked me what I was up to, I told him that I was building model planes. He looked at me quite concerned and said that drywall would be too heavy for that.

So, I guess it's just a matter of time now before some smart@ss builds and flies a drywall plane just to make a point.

Anybody else have any funny or strange experiences while improvising for parts or tools?

If you're not part of the solution... you may be insoluble!

And that could take a while, knowing drywall.

BTW, MANY years ago, before I knew better, I decided to do something with drywall, and in my ignorance I proceeded to cut it with an old blade in my circular saw.

Now that created dust!

I did something similar with a spin-saw recently ... I forgot to tell the wife how much of a mess it would make, nor did I think to set up any dust barriers.
