I bought a Starfrit digital scale for my builds and my wife wants to steal it! I haven't "borrowed" anything from the kitchen except for bamboo BBQ skewers and toothpicks. We don't have any interesting tools in our kitchen, well except for me!

Re: Caught Taking House Items For The Shop

Canadian Tire had the Starfrit scale on sale Saturday for $9.99 door crasher, I took back some unwanted Christmas present and got this instead! Good deal, measures up to 5kg at 1 gm intervals.
Also had a long look at a slow cooker, supposed to work great for using glycol antifreeze to boil engines/mufflers to remove goo as mentioned..

I thought I'd try my luck building a Mousse can muffler for an engine. Soo, I took can from the wash room not thinking it was a big deal. Who would miss one can of maybe ten. Apperently, "I took the best and most expensive can. That you have to buy from a hair salon". She would never noticed except, I dumped the product in the garbage and tipped her off. I tried to blame the kids but to no avail. Then the fight started!!! I hope this Mousse can doesn't work for me because I would hate to go through that episode again.

I found out that the fancy rotary cutters my better half uses work really really good on Monocoat and any other covering material.............too bad she caught me....the blades are pricey...........

Re: Caught Taking House Items For The Shop

Yep learned rather quickly in the early days about the wrath of she who must be obeyed when you borrow her favorite pair of panty hose to use as an emergency paint strainer. Wont do that again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She was pissed no only did I use the darn things to strain paint of all things but I cut off the legs to make it easier to work with. DUUUUUHHHHH as if she was going to use them after I strained the paint with them. How was I to know they were her favorite they all look the same bunched up in the drawer. Now if there was a tag or something that said “Favorite Do Not Use To Strain Paint" I could understand her being so upset.

Re: Caught Taking House Items For The Shop

My wife (and I) have and breed Golden Retreavers, and she has a wonderful supply of sissors for grooming the hounds for dog shows and such, I was informed one day that the sissors I had chosen to cut some fiberglass cloth cost over a hundred skins...yikes, she was not impressed.

Re: Caught Taking House Items For The Shop

Hmmm, I guess the crock pot is the biggie in this thread. I too have had to replace one of those. We had two so I took the smallest, oldest looking one. It had to be that someone dear to her had given it to her years ago and of all damn things, it has some kind of sentamental value to her....ouch!

Knives, spoons, forks, a spaggetti strainer, a pair of tongs, sissors, all available for the taking, at least I thought, until she lowered the boom on me.

The worse one though was I borrowed her matt cutting board she uses for sewing, to cut some fabric for a project I was working on and inadvertantly set my covering iron on the end, hot of course, melting it somewhat. The argument that most of it was still good/uesable didn't fly an inch! She really freaked on me with that one. Went to the fabric store the next day and bought her a new one. Damn those things are expensive!

NOW the onus is on me to prove my innocense whenever she finds the slightest mark on a piece of furniture, to prove it wasn't me!!

Moddling is a wonderful hobby but boy, it can sure have its downside at times!

They certainly are, out in the garage or back yard. Hot coolant stinks.
It will also take the paint off OS LA blue engines.
