Thanks Robert, I like all your toys

Forgive my ignorance, but what is the orange thing in post # 4? is it some sort of sheet metal cutter or bender? A stupid question I am sure, but I don't know much about metal working tools yet...
01-21-2004, 03:31 PM
gungatim....Its a Brake...that fit's the metal pro....It sure comes in handy a lot.

Robert D: Don't you feel ashamed for having so many "toys" while the rest of us have to scrimp and save and beg our wifes to just barely have the meager "toys" we have.
We see someone like you, and can only dream about what might have been possable!
And to top it all off... you have the <i>SPACE to ADD</i> as many "toys" as you will ever be able to acquire!
OH THE SHAME!!!
Sorry... I get carried away sometimes!
Great Tooyss eeeeerrrrr, "Tools."

01-22-2004, 04:16 PM
I think the batteries drain way to quick for me.
01-22-2004, 04:30 PM
J-MIKE..I am a tool freak...I buy tools like Marcos buy shoes.
01-22-2004, 04:46 PM
I sure like your shop. Looks like a "magic Garage" on steriods:laugh:
Looks you need to belong to one of my twelve step programs.
"toolaholic's" anonymous:confused: :help:
It hasn't worked for me, but maybe there's hope for you.
the high point of my week is Saturday afternoon going to the spanish restaurant with my friend Roy (AKA 1911 man). Then going to Harbor Freight, Tractor Supply, or some other "tool emporium" to see what we can't live without.
I'll guess I'll have to post some more pictures of the contents of the Magic Garage.:dizzy::

Fla jim.......We all like to see tools....Start Fla Jim play toys thread...
01-22-2004, 09:00 PM
I could do that, but those of mine that aren't buried in the snow are on the other side of the snow, and I don't feel like movin any more snow.
01-22-2004, 09:38 PM
I can attest to fl Jim's addiction- he's a sad case. And my failure in his much touted "12 step program" has cost me more money than I want to think about. But we have fun!

My dad had this in his shop back in the 40s back in Dow Ok. Used it until I got my Lift...What a life saver.
01-23-2004, 12:33 AM
That is a Bend pak lift. Blue one in the back. If you ever get one make sure you have at least a15' top or more.
01-23-2004, 12:37 AM
Boat I built..NEVER leave one out in the weather...now I have to redo almost all over...crap...

01-23-2004, 01:21 AM
Quite a place!! Some fancy stone work! Do you have an arial of your hacienda?
01-23-2004, 01:32 AM
No but the TAX MAN does LOL
01-23-2004, 02:33 AM
Since the dang yuppies started movin in around here you gotta keep stone hidden or it runs the assessment up 100 grand. I have a buddy in the assessors office who will let me look at the aireal photos, and what the damn town knows is too much. Fortunately, they don't know what's under the pines, and they ain't allowed to tax anything that isn't ancored to the ground.
They now subscribe to some damn satellite service that gives them color pictures you can see a beachball in.
The good part is they don't have accurate comparison photos that go back more than 2 years.
NY now reassesses every 6 years, and the town loves to pour over the new satellite photos lookin for raw wood, so they can nail people for construction without a building permit. This town even requires a permit to change your friggin water heater.
01-23-2004, 07:57 AM
Franz...I have been here 20 years now...started off with raw land...and from day 1 the BLOOD SUCKERS have been snooping around like DOGS. I will not let them on my land...so now ...I see a plane once a year fly over...Most of the time I just drop my trousers and moon them....lol...Its a damn shame life is short..and they want to make it shorter...Azz Holes all of them.
01-23-2004, 11:53 AM
Robert, is agricultural exemption available to you? i know Texas has it, and from some people I know down there, ag exemption kills the tax man in Texas.
02-24-2004, 08:28 PM
i like the storage compartment for your welding helment

ten years ago I changed the hot water heater to gas and the city made me get three permits, structural, gas and plumbing. talk about attitude!
nice rock work...don't you have a gen set to run all that electric stuff?

If you want a free arial photo go to
put your address in, picture size, res, and hit purchase and view it. In the view it will say terra server in a white pattern(save page for freebee). If you actually order it and pay for it, it won't say terra server on it.
02-25-2004, 11:54 AM
put address in search
02-25-2004, 01:00 PM
nice collection of stuff yout got Robert ! how much land you have and how big is your shop ?
I tried that terra server but the free copy is zoom'd so far out that my measly 2 acres of earth is about the size of a pin head.
edit: I really like that stone work too, did you do that yourself ?
That's a good looking part of Texas there. I used to live up just north of Austin in Round Rock and have relatives that we'd visit quite often down in Wimberly.
02-25-2004, 02:27 PM
When you hit purchase, a yellow box pops up for the close up of what you want. Hit biggest picture size and highest res.. Then hit preview. I can see the lawn mower stripes in the lawn.
02-25-2004, 03:13 PM
ah-ha ... I didn't realize I had to put it my cart to preview it. that was the part I was missing
02-25-2004, 04:31 PM
my home wasn't even there this is a old picture
02-25-2004, 05:31 PM
I can't get past the opening to find the damn search box.
How the hell do I get to the free part?
02-25-2004, 05:52 PM
Look at upper left on brick red bar you see:
home,products,SEARCH,image provider, and so...
Hit search and go down to address.
put address in
hit air photo
Hit purchase (you arn't buying anything, your viewing what you may buy just like on other shopping sites)
Click on image size and res.(make it big) and a yellow box pops up. You can move this box around. this will be your image
add to cart
Image should be loading.
Hit back button and change location or res or anything
02-25-2004, 06:08 PM
I must be so damn far out they didn't take my picture
02-25-2004, 07:00 PM
I was just wondering if you could attach the application for friendship. I live just down the road from you and was thinking with that many tools you really need a friend, say someone like me, to help you use them all. So many of those tools must be gathering dust since it is physically impossible for 1 man to use that many. Now for 2 people, it wouldn't be too hard to keep the cobwebs out of the windings. Let me know!
02-25-2004, 07:17 PM
Hey Franz do the Stelies and Salmon run about town

Thanks to all the scumsuckin yuppies who insist on building right into the creek bottoms, even the spring spawning runs suck.
I think they still have the Salmon derby on Lake Ontario, and every spring a lot of people arrive to fish the lower Genesee river, but I wouldn't eat anything out of either of those sewers.
02-25-2004, 08:37 PM
Thanks for the show Robert, I enjoyed it.
Robert - I'm jealous and now depressed. Just kidding. Thanks for sharing.
Re the sat photos, hey, who is that guy with my wife?
02-26-2004, 10:56 PM
TXTrailerdaddy its not the cobwebs up here its the Dirt dobbers what a pain they are.
02-27-2004, 12:46 AM
Howdy Robert D .... uhhh .... Dallas B
What the heck is happenin' to Boerne? First Taco C. then a TSC next Home Depot now a Whataburger??? Pretty soon y'all won't have to go to S.A.!!
BTW, very nice place. Kinda looks like the area I was in on Wed.:cool2:
02-29-2004, 07:02 PM
They don't know where the Hawaiian Islands are, even. Ha, so much the better. Keeps some prying eyes away from us out here in Paradise.
02-29-2004, 07:05 PM
I used to live west of you in Chautauqua County, a little town named Westfield. It's @ exit 60 on the Thruway.
I don't have snow here, so I feel for you, having to go dig out your stuff from under the frozen white crap. I lived in that for 50 years, then came out here. I love sunshine.
02-29-2004, 08:47 PM
Oldebrush, I'd rather deal with snow than damn tourists and ornery Samoans in traffic. I feel sorry for ya stuck on that dang volcanic rock covered with plastic immitation.
03-01-2004, 04:54 AM
I take it you have been here. I agree. I have a couple more years and I can retire. Moving to the Big Island (Peace & quiet) and plan to open a small welding shop there making gates and railings. Market is beginning to grow there and I have evrything I need to go to work.
03-01-2004, 04:56 AM
Am I the only one from out this way on this board?
03-12-2005, 11:01 AM
Back away from the power tools, very slowly. We are here to help you.
03-12-2005, 01:48 PM
Are those rock stuctures solid, or are they thin rock stuck to plywood and framming?
