It's a mystery!

Post by drpeej » Fri 15 Sep, 2017 2:15 pm

I cut my mouldings on a Morso in my garage.

The garage measures 2.8metres wide x 6 metres long.

When I take delivery of mouldings they are stored in racks in the ceiling.

So far so good - however when I take down a piece of moulding it is almost always the wrong way round to go into the Morso. As I can't fit a full 3m length sideways it is a bit of a performance to turn it round before I can feed it into the Morso.

I would expect it to be correct about 50% of the time but it isn't.

I will have to think about it more carefully when taking it off the Wessex van and putting it in my garage :head:

Cut a little gap about waist height around the whole garage, hang the top bit from a nearby tree or high hedging.

I have recently built a 5 x 3m log cabin as a workshop after having a large garage to frame in.
I've found this is an issue now, so I sort out the moulding and make sure it faces the correct way before taking it in and storing it, then when I lift it down to cut it is the correct way round.

If you do decide to go this route, I would also teather the top part of the shed to prevent it swinging.

Alternatively I could let the whole shed rotate and keep the moulding the same way round

There's too much of this going on. :evil:

It's not only moulding. I recently got a box of nails and at least 50% of them had the points on the wrong end.
But I managed to save the situation. I set them aside in a separate box and used them on the left sides of frames.

:lol:

At 1.23am Prospero was worrying about which way round his nails sit...

It gets worse.....

Just started a new box of screws and the points are OK but the heads are at the wrong end.

Aliens!!! :shock:

Ever had a box of Pozidriv screws where the screw-heads are at 45 degrees to normal - so they're like the St Andrew's Cross, rather than the St George's?

It's San Andreas' fault. It usually is. :Slap:

I once worked in tech support - call center stuff. We had a guy that, every time he was stumped, told the customer that their issue was due to the current heavy load of solar wave reflection. They were advised to leave things for a bit and try again later :)
