Got the box today. Lots of cool stuff but not a lot that was useful to me. Still worth the price of admission though! I added some goodies and sealed it back up so it should be on its way to Dag tomorrow.

I hope I don't intrude, but if there is"rattle room left when you are ready to send the box on, pack with pipe cleaners, q-tips, chip brushes, and rags cut from old under-
wear ( the best !)+ old magazines of some interest, etc..........BLJHB.

No intrusion, In fact if nothing else, something useful that you made can be put I the box. I think of it this way, If what I put in the box is still there when it comes back to me, Then I will take it out and put something else in, But from the sounds of it most of the stuff I put in there will be gone, I no longer had a need for it but others did. Even some old off cuts of stock may be useful to others.
Woodrow hope you do join us in this. It is fun, even for people who have not done much in many years.

Exactly. I tossed in stuff that I probably wouldn't get around to using, or that I figured would be useful to someone else. And I took some things that others may have considered piddly, like a piece of soapstone. Saved me from buying some, as little as I need it, that chunk will last me quite awhile. I had some extras of stuff, so that went in too. The chipping hammer has already come in handy, and i'm eyeballing my scrap box for a chunk of steel to make a holder for the inserts. Can't wait for box #2 to find it's way here.

Well the second box has shipped today, $12.65 to ship, postman said , it would have been $53.00 to ship other ways. Gotta love flat rate. I did have to redo two screw holes just moved the an inch from old hole. Hope everyone finds things they need. I found some and Hmann was more then generous thanks sir it arrived and is perfect got my mill. Sure wish I had some friends to help me get a cnc mill a victor , he called it a 2d mill. Wants $750.00 dollars set up and running , I couldn't find anyone to move it or help me move it. . Called a moving company and the wouldn't even do it after they found it ways close to 2,000 lbs. at first they said $350 , then no way. God I mwish I wasn't in this damn wheelchair. Years ago I moved a Bridgeport by my self. I think people are pure lazy. Oh well enjoy the goodie box and pass it on. Silverbullet.

Box 2 arrived today, see why the screws are having to be moved. but do not know where to get the inserts like were used for the screws in box 1. Or I would work it over. May take me a few days to get it out, as spent most of the day at the doctor, Several treatments then an Xray and then the doctor calls and tells me I have Pneumonia and I have to go pick up more meds to take.
I will try and get it out in a couple of days.

Kv there aren't any inserts in box two. At least not in the lid, you better take care of the pneumonia . Your health is more important then a box of junk. Think of it that way it will wait. I pushed and pushed my self back into a wheelchair maybe if I took better care I'd still be walking at least some. Do what your body tells ya , it will tell you if you need to rest , pay attention for a year , yes a year . Bad things can happen we don't want any. I do hope you find some goodies inside have fun. Glad it made it to you ok.

Just got box #1. Wow, heavy! Lots of interesting stuff- LOTS that I had no idea what they were. It's like a bad game of Tetris getting everything to fit back into the box. Kept some items (tap handle, small tap, small monkey wrench, spark plug socket, double ended 4 flute 3/8" end mill) and got rid of a couple if items because they're really bulky, and could be replaced by anyone with a trip to Horror Fright if they really needed a couple of plastic handles.

Adding some items into the box and then shipping to the next person in the next couple of days- most likely Thursday when I have a day off. Catskinner is the next person on the list, sent a PM.

Take your time and get healed up KV. When you get around to securing that lid, mix up some JB Weld or Epoxy and coat your screws and the bottom of the lid with paste wax or some other release agent, fill the holes with the glue and then put the lid on and screw it down. Everything should stay together during shipment and pop right apart when it gets to the next guy. Just a thought from an old acraglass guy.

Ken, I got those inserts at my local Ace hardware store. They were in one of those little boxes of odds and ends and special 'used once in a lifetime' doo dads. The particular box where I found them was marked as 'Furniture Parts and Hardware' or something of that nature. I just remember that it was furniture related.

If you go looking for them at Home Depot you probably will not find them and the guy at my local HD store looked at me like I was from the planet Zorcon (how did he know? :grin:) when I asked about them. I always knew there was a good reason that I like my local small town hardware store!

McMaster-Carr also carries the inserts I used and you can find them here in bags of 50 for about $9 depending on size: http://www.mcmaster.com/#standard-threaded-inserts/=zl1l4o

Terry thanks for the information. Most if not all of the local small shops around here have closed. I hate it. there is one in a town a short distance from SA that I may be able to check with. It will go out as is for now.
