Joes cheap ars tip for the day .lol

When i buy gas at speedway they are always offering me a rewards card so i take them all. These are great for spreading epoxy with or taking it away when fiberglassing. . I build with foam too like alot of you and i make control horns and tail skids from these and old credit cards . You can glue these inside wheel pants then run a screw them to hold your pants on.lol For the last 3 years a dumb insurance company got my name and address and sends me 2 insurance cards . I never activate them so the dumb arses keep sending me 2 new ones every couple months for my building collection. They work great for applying spackel or scrapimg it smooth. So from joes cheap ars shop Goodday ! BTW for a extra kick in life you can cut up your girlfriends or wifes credit cards and use them to build your planes . You know the rc ones she is always complaining about. Every time you fly that plane it will put a big smile on your face. joe

I used to get the "example" credit cards several times a month. Now for some reason they have tapered off. Maybe they finally realized I wasn't going to use them. Problem now is that my supply is running a bit low as I had so many I used them once and threw them away when they could have been cleaned. Hmmm, maybe I should apply for a store credit card so every creditor in the world will start sending solicitations again and I can get a new supply.

There are two kinds of people, those that use them and those
that lie!

These give a way note pads are great for mixing small amounts
of epoxy. Just tear it off and toss it. The epoxy doesn't
soak thru them if you get the heavier ones. Ours came
from Auto Zone, they are free if you ask.

On the Credit card issue. Gift cards...... From Walmart, McDonalds, to every resturant in the world, they usually have a stack somewhere tempting you to liberate a few for your collection.

On the mixing pads. I use all the 'free' junk mail advertising post cards that always show up in the mail. The shiny surface allows almost every last trace of glue to be used with my toothpick applicator. On buddy uses old magazines and tears the paper off for a fresh one, same shiny surface to work from.

And Joe, I have seen some of your big old monster planes. Your girl Friend must have lots of credit cards! LOL, JK.

I know how ya feel Freddie i have not worked on a plane in 8 days .I went to my shop and cleaned up the tops of all my tables . I did see a junk man driving down the street yesterday with a nice rubbermaid tuff cart in the back of his truck ,i guess it was for big resturant food trays. I caught him at a light and asked how much and he said 3 bucks but i felt bad and gave him 5 . I should have just gave him 3 because it took 1 1/2 hours to get all the resturant grease off of it. Put all my tools / glue ,squares ,levels on it today so i can roll it around my shop now. joe

Nice cart Joe. It's a bit late but a tip for your future use is that the $1.00 a bottle spray cleaner from Dollar Tree Store, called Totaly Awsome (Yellow color) is your friend for removing cooking grease. I used it on some Melamine that had 10 year old yellow goo that even a putty knive didn't stand a chance. T.A. wait a minute, warm water on a paper towel. gone.......... Wish I knew about it back when the slimmy Ex could have been cleaned up before she shipped off......

My shop looks like a war zone, and I lost.......

LOL. When you finally give in and give her a ride on the cart, Video please....... Better yet, Joe riding on cart, girlfriend watching, video please........ Sure to be a YouTube hit I'm sure.

I told mine yesterday all I ever hear is complaining. Told her she should be happy to live in a big old house, not needing to work a job, having everything paid for by someone else , etc, etc...... Just one positive comment once in a while, geeeeze. I need a biker chick or something, LMAO
