    Reminds me of Whammerdyne Heavy Industries: http://whammerdyne.com/

    Which reminds me of Bottlehead's long-ago Whamodyne loudspeaker concepts -- back when the company itself was still called Electronic Tonalities.

    I can see some verbal malfunctions with that name, especial when excited. LOL toughsheets

    They'll have great cheers.

    When I was in college there was an intramural :| softball team called the Nads.
    Folks would cheer 'em on:
    "Go Nads! GO NADS!"

    In other news -- our son tipped me off last week on a very good sale price from Home Despot on a Milwaukee M18 7-1/4" circular saw with a 5 amp-hour battery (less than half 'list price')... so I ordered one. Got it today.

    (I am heavily invested in the M18 ecosystem already B) )

    I have a beautiful old Craftsman circular saw that belonged to my father-in-law. The saw still works perfectly, but... The only problem with it is that will only take up to a 7-inch blade -- a 7-1/4" blade won't fit. :# 7 inch blades are essentially now extinct as far as I can tell.

    I like the M-18 the smaller scale M-12 (IIRC)gear. I like that C-saw Doc, those 5amp hour bat'rees are not inexpensive!

    But worth it. At least for my DeWalt stuff. It lasts much longer on a single charge. Like, much longer. They aren't cheap though....you are definitely right about that.

    My son, son-in-law, and I have built up an ecosystem of Milwaukee tools. The former, of course, lives too far away for hot swapping ;) but we co-mingle resources when we're together projecting. The latter and I pool batteries and tools when duty calls; it's a win-win.

    'Twas our son-in-law who started it by picking up a Milwaukee 18V cordless drill at a pawnshop in Keene, NH years ago. That drill (and its original battery) live at my house now, and still work fine.

    Indeed, our son-in-law managed to get a very short screwdriver bit caught in a 1/4" impact driver. He and I tried to extract it, to no avail. He took it to various resources, including a machinist who advised him to send it back to the mfgr for repair :o Our S-i-L kind of gave up at that point and bought another one ;) (and also a larger Milwaukee impact driver, which is a force of nature, BTW). He passed the 1/4 incher along to me.

    So... yeah...I put it in the basement. I'd look at it sometimes, thinking there's gotta be a way to extract that $@# bit. The challenge was purchase -- it was hard to get a grip on the little bit B) of the bit that protruded from the chuck.

    June 2020. COVID-times. I was gonna cut the grass, but the weather was bad, so I was in full-on puttering mode. I was in the basement and I looked at the small impact tool -- and I had a thought.
    (see below)
    The power of a (small) Vice Grip comes through! :)
    The trick was... finding my pair of small Vice Grips. I had been been looking for them... and that day (28 June, according to the email I sent to my S-i-L) I managed to locate them... in (of course) my tool chest! :blush:

    The Power of Positive Puttering. The impact tool is alive and well. :)

    Gulf Shores And Orange Beach
    Dubbed Redneck Riviera by Alabama & Oakland Raiders QB Kenny Stabler.

    Setting the Record Straight
    I have noticed several references in the media lately where the entire Gulf Coast beach stretching from Panama City Florida to Gulf Shores Alabama was referred to as the Redneck Riviera.

    Wrong! I know this area quite well venturing from Panama City Beach Florida to Gulf Shores Beach Alabama and beyond to Dauphin Island Alabama where I saw the ocean (Gulf of Mexico really) and discovered an ocean beach for the first time at age 10-12.

    Vacationed with family on beaches of Panama City Florida year after year. Went to Destin Florida, the fishing village, many times with my father and other family members to go deep sea fishing when there were only 2-3 motels exclusively for "fisherman". Still going to all these places after all the years but now with droves of people and massive density of beach properties.

    In the past, this bar on the Florida and Alabama state lines always separated the more upscale Florida part of the Gulf Coast beaches from the down home Alabama beaches. The Alabama beaches are the most fun now.

    saw this at hifihaven -- pretty much no matter how you look at it, it's kind of troubling...

    Well, today (10 June) Google's splash graphic honors scones. I thought it was to hono(u)r National Scone Day. There is a National Scone Day, of course (at least in the UK) -- but it was on 30 May! Perhaps (???) this explains why these two scones are eyeing each other so warily...

    They're kind of funny looking scones, too... no wonder they look so suspicious...

    They certainly are strange looking scones (pr. scones or scons, you decide) as they do not look to be cut
    in half. The wary looks are probably because the guy on the left us a Devon scone (cream then jam) and the guy on the right is a Cornwall scone (jam then cream).

    That's a pimped out mower that will never see a day of actual duty.

    I got the same impression, but it needs to lose the candy@ss blue paint and add in some flames & skulls. B)
