The arrangement of tools on the peg board is a perpetual work in progress. For the archives this is how it looks after today’s rearrangement. I’ve been trying to make some space for the wire rack and storage bins I’m hoping to purchase soon.
So I had these “drill bit thingos” hanging on the pegboard in my lab, but I wanted to store them in a component drawer instead, but I wasn’t sure what the label should say. I searched “the usual places” to try to find the order in which I purchased them, but couldn’t find such a thing. In a last ditch effort I put the number printed onto the case into my search engine and did an image search on it: 15050090001. And there it was! Turns out the drill bits are called “Step Drill Bits”, as seen here: 1PCS HSS Co 3-12mm 4-22mm 6-24mm Spiral Groove 1/4″ Hex Handle Step Dril Bit Hole Cutter Cone Saw Stepped Drill Power Tools. Problem solved.
Got myself a pair of Scissor Clamps, known as Haemostats.
Some good tools and techniques listed over one Tools for Auditing CSS.
Today I enjoyed reading Build tools around workflows, not workflows around tools. Taken with John Romero’s advice to build your own tools I feel I am on the right path with some of my current projects.
This popped up on r/programming today: HTTP(S) Benchmark Tools.
Today I read (some of) Digital Tools I Wish Existed. I didn’t read the whole thing but I did find myself agreeing with the bits I read. I tried creating a reading database for myself but it quickly got clogged and unmanageable then fell into disuse. I think it’s a good idea but I haven’t found a workable solution to the problem yet… presently my notes and reading are strewn out all over the place.
Today I learned about Fetch as Google. Haven’t used it yet, though.
