Penny Wise and Pound Foolish

Postby sbaddley » Tue Feb 26, 2013 12:00 pm

Was working on a project using my Taurus Ring Saw and the blade broke. After changing the blade, a series of cuts that took a lot of pressure on the blade and about 5 minutes now takes less than a minute and very little pressure on the blade. Who Knew? Guess I should think about changing my grinder head.

Every once in a while I have to call myself out for being too cheap and foolish. :D

I do the same thing, but those blades are so darn expensive ya just hate to not use it till it finally screams and breaks on ya!

When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me." (erma bombeck)
