It has been a couple of weeks since my last post. Mostly that is because I have not had time to do anything substantive at all. Too busy at the library, and desperately trying to complete abstracting microfilmed correspondence for the biography on which I have been working (or telling people I am working) for a quarter-century now.
I did some other things. Took back the Evercraft SAE combination wrenches (Society of American Engineers or imperial standard; i.e., inches and fractions) and instead bought a set of Craftsman with both SAE and metric wrenches, having got a terrific deal on them. That means with the snippets of time at hand I’ve begun to reset the top drawer of the tool chest. Pictures later, right now I have to find time to get the drawer lining reconfigured so the wrenches go neatly into place. Yes, OCD (just a bit).
This week I also bought a bore hone for the brake master cylinder and wheel cylinders (if they need it). Tried to borrow one but couldn’t. Have not taken it out of the package, however, because I cannot use it without someone else to take photographs. Not only don’t I have time but I don’t have three hands.
Probably won’t get the brake cylinder honed this week because I am on the road for state consortium meetings and development work. No rest for the wicked–or for a dean, for that matter. Maybe that’s the same thing?
