Stripped star bit

Star bit stripping

We decided today was the day to stop ignoring the tangled mess of bent metal that was once our workshop.

The job called for a hex key bit, but the closest thing I could find today was a star bit that seemed to do the job until I stripped out the teeth of the bit.

Taking the main legs apart along with a few sections of the roof was all it took to make it more manageable. The metal pieces have a nice powder coating to them, which might come in handy for a yet unknown future project.
