Re: Last thing you bought (no games)

I was on vacation, just logged in a bit to act like I wasn't. ;)

I went into a couple of Book Off stores and came out with 7 manga.

Samurai Shodown, the 3 volume set of Mai the Psychic Girl perfect collection, and then the other 3 were books to finish up a series which were 2 from Samurai Crusader, and the 8th(last) translated volume of 3x3 Eyes.

Anything else is gaming so that's out.

Saw these steel master metal organizers and decided to pick them up for $70. Smaller ones are perfect for my genesis/32x and N64 carts while the larger ones are the perfect height for my Atari 2600 carts. The larger ones can fit about 29-30 atari carts per drawer so that would give me a capacity of around 348 carts which would give me a little breathing room since I'm at 210 Atari games. For the smaller drawers I can get about 112 carts in so I could put my loose genesis and N64 games in those and still have a little room left but I might just put my genesis carts in so I have plenty of space to expand. Will have to keep my eye out for more steel master cabinets and organizers these are pretty nice.

Hey, that is a great idea! I see the metal drawers sometimes at the swap meet.

It is, trust me. It's probably in this thread from last year or the year before but I found an old library antiqued 1 high 2 wide(drawer) old card catalog filer. All wood other than the handle and a metal rod along the bottom with a tab/spacer to slide back as more stuff goes in. Perfect width for anything Gameboy, GBA, and NGPC sized to put games into 2 long columns in there. One of them has all my GB/GBC stuff, the other is GBA and I have a good bit of room to spare as I think it can take around 80~ games per drawer. It looks nice, it's low key, and if no one knows better a nice surprise to dig stuff out of.

Hi, I'd just like to share that we already have a thread for this kind of thing here:

viewtopic.php?f=47&t=27105

It's not a dead thread, either. So mosey on over that way and we'll just leave this one to die.

OK, I'm going to merge those two threads. No reason to have this ongoing duplication.

Kawasaki mule 2000 that had been sitting in a barn for the last 10 years. Its ugly, its beat up, it has rust on the tail gate, but it turns over. Once we clean the carburetor, get a new battery, and new tires. I will be about 1k out of pocket for a new farm vehicle that will be friggin awesome.

So I am very interested. I mean I have a Black Bull floor press - but a benchtop one is far more useful in the long run, and It would be at my house not at the farm.


Hey Fast! I would recommend the Wen drill press. I've used it a few times now since I got it and it's been great. I only have a few minor complaints.

One is very minor, more of an annoyance. The laser sites work off two AAA batteries, which just seems lazy to me. The light comes on/off with the main power switch, but the laser site needs batteries. I already forgot to turn it off and killed the batteries. Now I'll just leave them dead as I don't need laser sites anyway.

You cannot lock the press in a down position. So, when using those drum sanders I have to bring the table up, which isn't so bad I guess. But I can't use it as a clamp, which I was kinda looking forward to. If I would have known you can't lock it down, I probably would have went with another drill press. Now I'll have to buy a little arbor press, I was hoping to save some money there. I was kinda baffled that you can't lock it in the down position, I thought that was a feature all drill presses had. But I looked through the manual and didn't see anything, so I guess not!

The spindle arms leave a little to be desired. I just wish they were a little meatier, if you know what I mean. A tad longer wouldn't be bad either. I would suggest putting a little thread lock on them, they seem to come loose often (even when I use a wrench to tighten them).

So in short... Real men don't use laser sites, but it just seems cheap to have them powered by batteries. If you're not looking to lock the press down for a specific need, then I wouldn't worry about it. The spindle arms are on the small side, but are functional. All in all, I've had no problems drilling holes with this thing. I've drilled quite a few holes in wood and metal now, and I love it!
