I think I'm pretty much done till September now.
It was 30 degrees on my way in to work this morning. It'll probably top out at 75 today, but beginning next week will be back into the 90's. Goofy weather so far this year, matches up with all the rest of the goofy things going on in 2020!

You mean HSS doesn't mean go as fast as the drill will spin?

I have been trying to pound that into my kids heads for years. I finally bought a nice set in 1/64th increments and keep them locked away from the boys. My oldest boy (24 ay the time) got ahold of my Silver & Deming set once and used one to waller out a large slotted hole. He quickly found out why I keep my bits locked away from them!
