blowing a fuse
I finally got up the courage to use the table saw and instead, it blew a fuse. Of course all of the other outlets in the garage work after re-tripping everything but not the one closest to where all my power tools plug in. So I got an extension cord out and blew that fuse. Re tripped that one and it works but not the one I need. Wonder why when the welder dude turned it on and showed me how to cut things it was fine? It is one of those days I feel like I will never have anything ever just work normally. This is how it goes, this is life...everything works just enough to keep me from exploding. So I have a table saw that doesn't work without blowing fuses. A huge radial arm saw that has nowhere to sit and needs adjusted but no clue how to do that. A drill press that is always getting stuck and having the chunk where the drill bit attaches fall out when I'm drilling something. A wobbly scroll saw. A sparky skil saw. A stereo that has speakers that tune in and out and drives me insane. I think I am realizing a little too late that while it is nice to have used materials for my art assemblages, having used tools isn't such a good idea. I can't stand that I've wasted valuable time and $$ on less than stellar tools.
