The phrase 'crumpled heap' comes to mind.

Turntable Nail File

Use the strobe marks on the turntable to file your nails.

On the side of the platter of my turntable there are marks that stand still when illuminated with a small orange neon lamp. I modified my turntable to spin at about 180 RPM. Now when I put my nails on the strobe marks, they get filed when the turntable is whirling at 180 RPM.

       So you invented a >$10 nail file? If you'd said it was steam powered I could have voted for it.

       Mabye if I could get a hold of a Makita grinding disk, I could put it on my wind-up gramophone and let the spring do the work. FYI: Makita disks have the same sized hole as a phonograph record.

       Hey [Amishman], you wanna buy an '87 Ford Tempo? There is a little rusty spot on the driver's side door that makes a perfect nail file. And if you stick you hand out there at 65 mph, it gets rid of the shavings too!!
