Wrench Man

April 25, 2020

I snapped a pic of Jim modeling his new wrench.

It’s his specially dedicated lathe wrench — designed for a particular bolt, I imagine, and will live right there beside said bolt. And he made the wrench himself from some scrap 1/4″ slab o’ metal. I actually didn’t know a person could do such a thing.

I think I’m also noticing that Jim fashioned a drawer beneath the lathe.  The wood (oak) comes from our kitchen cabinets (three remodels ago). You should see his workshop… it’s one customized son of a gun. (He thinks I don’t notice this.) (I do.) (Sometimes, when he’s out, I just walk around in there marveling at all the little touches.)
