I'm here to do some dusting...
A brutal series of combos has left me off my butt for a long time now. I'm finishing up the 3rd vacancy mentioned above, and there's another eviction in the court system. I happened to be stuck home today, and found some un-posted updates on my camera.
-not much, but it's something.
How does this forum thing work...

-That tube I milled 1/4" holes in was so I could tap this 1/4" purple rod into the holes. The tapered tube to the side is with the mounting plates that attached it to the case MANY MONTHS AGO.

-Here that is sanded down smooth.

-I was still trying to remove the chrome from the faucet tube.

-For that I needed some flap sanding discs. I could buy some God-awful expensive Dremel ones, or... Yeah.

-A little cardboard backing and I'm ready to rock.

-A little side mod I did to a crappy tool design. The battery attachment point disintegrated due to the violent tool vibration. I made an extension cord.

To disgust you, or give you a vague idea of WHY I have been gone so long:

-Check out that sweet paint work! This is vacancy one, somewhere in 2016. They honestly thought they could paint over the filth.

-This is my current project immediately after the scoop-shovel squad finished up. Feral cats, rats, raccoons in the attic, and a hen in the garage. Drugs are bad, M'kay?

-Hoping to do a real update someday. Think of this as a postcard from limbo.

My flat looked like that when I moved in. I've done quite a bit of work to get it reasonably presentable. Still, the rent is £120 less than it is in similar refurbished flats so hey, we'll take it..

Sorry you got screwed though dude. At least they're out now. Good idea on the sanding disc. I will probably nick that at some point got me some alu oxide cloth paper too.

The forum at its best, highlighting the ingenuity of a member to overcome a challenge without going to the store to buy an off the self product.

Cheapskate your sanding disk reminded me of the following video:

-I wonder if that can remove lime scale from tub tile...

Heh, I used some Poly Zag to remove some rust stains out of a shower tub once. The fumes wafted over the copper pipes for the baseboard heat, insta-green!

@Bneg - I would too, but there's things like tub chips, (what the hell do you do in a tub to chip the ceramic anyway?) and that metal thing called the drain fitting. I've had to change out fixtures that had been turned black and peeled the chrome off because someone poured toilet cleaner on the tub and left it.

This is a super cool project. I have been so busy with all my crap that I have basically had no free time to look at the other nice builds. This one is really interesting! 5 out of 5.

Love the milling action you got going also

Thanks, guys.
My milling is mediocre and you know it. I'm glad you had a look and like the rig, though.
-Bill, get back to the mill. :P
