I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves - such an ethical basis I call more proper for a herd of swine. The ideals which have lighted me on my way and time after time given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Truth, Goodness, and Beauty.
-Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

post hole drill

#1: 18″ auger bit for my post hole drill proved too much for the shaft.
#2: Teeth were spinning and breaking off.

#1: Weld it up as good as new. Add a collar to double the strength in the working area.
#2: Add plate to mounting area and matching lip to every tooth.

Never had a stitch of trouble with it after that.
