Do You know what this is??
Posted by Tanker-Builder on Tuesday, June 16, 2020 5:12 PM

 Hi There;

      I am Round. My bottom is Polished Black, My top is Clear. My bottom also has Three levels. One level has little yellow markings on it. The other level is a wee bit higher. Now, the lowest level is almost about a 1/16 thick. The Clear top sits on top of that edge. I show NO signs of wear But between the two of us we are three times as old as the number of holes we have in a ring next to the Markings I mentioned.

      Although I am showing No Stress Cracks on either surface both the Bottom where I contact and the inside of the Top require a layer of Clear Packing tape to now keep us together. The objects that reside in those holes have had only three of our brethren replaced over the years. Oh, last Clue, My last name rhymes with an underdog baseball team. What and Who am I ?

It kinda sounds like you should have taken better care of yourself.  Your mother wasn't kidding when she told you to wear your galoshes in the rain. 

And now, here we are.

Not so much, but it's getting late and more likely by the minute I'll be tossing and turning trying to figure this out tonight. (I figured somebody would have it by now).

Great !!!!!

Now I'm going to be up all night ..... trying to figure this out.

Do you mean "round" as in sphere, like a ball ?

Or, round like a tire, or coin ? 

Thought it was a compas..... but the hole's confuse me....

Custom Bowling Ball ????

EDIT: A drill bit container !!

( As you can see,  .... mine is held together with tape too. )

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage"

Hello!

I would never get it - where I live the drill bit containers look differently! Plus the bits sold in sets are usually crappy and need to be replaced pretty soon after the first use...

And yes, sometimes when I read a post like that, I kind of wonder: WHY? Or "How in the world did he get inspired to do just that"?

But since I'm posting here too, I guess there must be something to it...

Have a nice  day

All comments and critique welcomed. Thanks for your honest opinions!

I can't believe anyone figured this out. I have one just like it, wouldn't have guessed it, ever.

I don't know if you deserve an award or a white jacket with the snaps in back, Timmy.

I don't need an award ...... just let me out of the "jacket" once in a while.

As to its name, it says right on it "DrillStand". But, I have always called it a "Drill Caddy".

 Dont worry about the thumbprint, paint it Rust , and call it "Battle Damage"
