I've stopped using QDE.

It should be named SDE instead. S for slow. Pwede rin smelly. :lolno:

I'm now using Davies Aqua Gloss-it. After an hour or two pwede na ulit 2nd coat. You only need water for cleanup.

And the best part is its odorless.

Too late for me to change brand/type. Thanks for the recommendation tho, will look up difference between oil and water-based paint.

It is indeed slow :yawn: it tests my patience. Well, as long as it dries, and dries hard, and is glossy.

I want to recoat now but 12+ hours in, some parts are still tacky... so here i am posting instead of painting :eh:

@timb
There's so much surface area that i just might be lazy and live with the orange peel. Going through the grits, then hitting it with a polisher... thinking about that and i feel tired already. More paint, more protection too.

mini update but post-worthy:

rollers are a bit spendy considering i'll be shooting for at least 5 coats @ 80 bucks a pop. A post in a forum said to store rollers in ziploc bag... i stored it in a plastic container and added a bit of thinner and i was able to use the roller again for the second coat... will use it again for the third coat.

I've abandoned making a smooth mirror finish. too much elbow grease and i've sanded through metal again when i sanded through the orange peel in some places.

A ratcheting wrench is a god sent when you need to fasten so many bolts. A ratchet+socket doesn't have the clearance to do the job.

Drawer pulls open with one finger (but has a detent on all, and lock on the bottom 4 drawers), a sample of what it can swallow.

And... the hobby-shop supervisor, definitely no slave-driver he is. Not as spritely as he used to be, he's been with me since around 2004, how old is it in dog years?

Image

Well that's it. Project done, which is good because i have a bad track record in completing stuff... On top of it sits the drill press which i restored to working order around 2007, that was also the time when i first met a few key members here, tipidpc pa nun...

Now i don't have the heart to drill through the parts/toolbox to install a vise >_<.

^Thanks for dropping that Ishitani reference. I only heard it from you and am watching his videos now.

What a drill press! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w_u7k2gcrds

Who wants a (wall) tool cabinet? Who doesn't dream of making one? (Here's a pinnacle of it fwiw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHZWRxHnluw )

So this week i went to my source of palochina and plywood to cobble one... but there's no long, quality boards there as of now.

Went to HMR sta. rosa. (which has better pickings than harrison plaza) and found this:

Image

A 30"X30" by 12" deep "gladiator" garage cabinet.

Image

Not as sexy as a wooden, shop made one but this will be my "temporary" solution that will prolly last for years! lol.

If you guys go to vigan, might as well buy a baul/lakasa which can be repurposed as a wall cabinet...
Will hang it as soon as i get my corded drill from the workers who borrowed it...

...Ano latest HMR finds nyo btw?

Installed the cabinet this lunch! Got no goldenrod https://www.amazon.com/GoldenRod-inch-S ... B005FRGQUG so lamps as anti humidity measure will do. Sayang nga lang yung space.

Anyone care to school me/talk about impact drivers?

There has been lots of new tech (brushless, oil pulse) - but those are above 10K so it's beyond my budget - ... and classes 10.8/12V, 14.4, 18v, that there are so many models to choose from it's very confusing at first.

All i primarily will use it for is drive wood screws, and tanda ko sabi ni doc, mabigat ang 18v (metabo.)

Just came from mayon today and the 18v class, g-series (makita's diy grade) TD127DW which has been around since maybe 2014 costs ~9K. http://www.makitauk.com/products/cordle ... ifications

According to gigatools, the 10.8V TD110D (which is a 2016 model) costs 6.2K

My bosch cordless drill have served me well for more than 5+ years so there's absolutely nothing wrong with the brand. But i just want to have some variety :angel:

For driving screws into wood 18V is too heavy in my opinion.

I use a 12V Bosch and I still have to take care not to overdrive the screw. This model to be exact.
