Never try to tell me it can't be done
When I have to paint I use http://kbs.justoldtrucks.com/
Brilliant. And especially the lock washers. Basically, you just made a Desmond-style dresser, there, so cool! (I googled a little, and saw another video where someone used a piece of thread-rod with a couple of nuts on either end to retain the lock-washers, rather than just put them on a spade-bit, but whatever.) And love the little 'joggly drill-bit' test-for-true, on both face and sides. This SO demonstrates so many ways of clear, smart, simple thinking -- triumphing over Buying New Stuff. :-)
As tennis pioneer Arthur Ashe said, in a totally different domain, but I love this: "Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can." Good advice for life, but also for the shop. :-) I just love "hacks", and especially when they make me sit back and appreciate good clear thinking. This was just full of them - as well as really good, thoughtful presentation! - so thank you.
And definitely want to reinforce the wearing a face shield (cute how you "put it on" (over the camera)). If you're dressing an old, out-of-true wheel, the risk is significantly higher of it actually having let's say "integrity failure", "mitosis" -- i.e. "experiencing transformation from one to more-than-one piece rapidly" -- at 1725 rpms, towards you.... I supposed I could calculate the rim speed of that for a 6" Ø wheel if I really tried to remember high school geometry, then add in momentum or something for a given weight hunk from physics class, but let's just go with "fast" and "bad", respectively. >;-) Wear yer shield (not just goggles; shield) - unless you think facial scars are "colorful".
