Some of my tools have gone missing. This is not likely a recent development, but it is a PITA. For instance, I needed my router yesterday, and it along with a set of router bits was gone from its perch in the basement. I did a mad search for it, thinking that perhaps I had used it in a time of not remembering and had left it somewhere different, but 'twas not to be.

I don't discount the possibility that it may turn up sometime in the future, as it's possible I may have overlooked a cunning hiding place in the basement or somesuch. In the meantime, I had to purchase another plunge router and set of bits. Now it looks as if at least one drill is missing, too. That's not as harsh, as I do have more than one, but it's annoying and paranoia-inducing.

Yes, but it was in the basement. It would have been during the last break-in, which was when I was living in the Gulag, and it would mean that I hadn't used it for a couple of years.

That is possible. I don't remember needing it for the past couple of years.

hot ass!

do you have a miter saw i can borrow? i need to cut some trim for a room and i have a hand saw and miter box, but OMG did that get old after a few days of trim cutting. anyway, i thought i'd ask. i would probably need it for 3-4 hours at most, it is only one room i have to do but a lot of cuts, like 50, there are lots of corners! ugh!

My miter saw isn't exactly portable and it's pretty much in constant use (I use it for straight cuts on wood joins as well as miters). If you know the measurements and can cut the wood at my place you're welcome to use it, or if you can wait until after I get the porch framed I can part with it for a day-- but that's still a few weeks away.
