[03/03/21]   TOOLS EXPLAINED

DRILL PRESS : A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the chest and flings your beer across the room, denting the freshly-painted project which you had carefully set in the corner where nothing could get to it.

WIRE WHEEL : Cleans paint off bolts and then throws them somewhere under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes fingerprints and hard-earned calluses from fingers in about the time it takes you to say, 'Oh sh*t'

DROP SAW : A portable cutting tool used to make studs too short.

PLIERS : Used to round off bolt heads. Sometimes used in the creation of blood-blisters.

BELT SANDER : An electric sanding tool commonly used to convert minor touch-up jobs into major refinishing jobs.

HACKSAW : One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board principle... It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more dismal your future becomes.

VISE-GRIPS : Generally used after pliers to completely round off bolt heads. If nothing else is available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to the palm of your hand.

OXYACETYLENE TORCH : Used almost entirely for lighting on fire various flammable objects in your shop. Also handy for igniting the grease inside the wheel hub out of which you want to remove a bearing race..

TABLE SAW : A large stationary power tool commonly used to launch wood projectiles for testing wall integrity.

HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK : Used for lowering an automobile to the ground after you have installed your new brake shoes, trapping the jack handle firmly under the bumper.

BAND SAW : A large stationary power saw primarily used by most shops to cut good aluminum sheet into smaller pieces that more easily fit into the trash can after you cut on the inside of the line instead of the outside edge.

TWO-TON ENGINE HOIST : A tool for testing the maximum tensile strength of everything you forgot to disconnect.

PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER : Normally used to stab the vacuum seals under lids or for opening old-style paper-and-tin oil cans and splashing oil on your shirt; but can also be used, as the name implies, to strip out Phillips screw heads.

STRAIGHT SCREWDRIVER : A tool for opening paint cans. Sometimes used to convert common slotted screws into non-removable screws and butchering your palms.

PRY BAR : A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part.

HOSE CUTTER : A tool used to make hoses too short.

HAMMER : Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays is used as a kind of divining rod to locate the most expensive parts adjacent the object we are trying to hit.

UTILITY KNIFE : Used to open and slice through the contents of cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly well on contents such as seats, vinyl records, liquids in plastic bottles, collector magazines, refund checks, and rubber or plastic parts. Especially useful for slicing work clothes, but only while in use.

ADJUSTABLE WRENCH: aka "Another hammer", aka "the Swedish Nut Lathe", aka "Crescent Wrench". Commonly used as a one size fits all wrench, usually results in rounding off nut heads before the use of pliers. Will randomly adjust size between bolts, resulting in busted buckles, curse words, and multiple threats to any inanimate objects within the immediate vicinity.

Son of a bitch TOOL : Any handy tool that you grab and throw across the garage while yelling 'Son of a b*tch' at the top of your lungs. It is also, most often, the next tool that you will need.

Todd's Deer Processing

Hey everyone! We can’t thank you enough for an AMAZING 2020 Deer Season! We just completed our 10th Deer Season serving our community! We are planning a 10 year Celebration Event at the opening of the 2021 Season in Late September/Early October so keep your eyes open for that!

This year, we introduced to our menu, our very own deer bologna and summer sausage ...and WOW did you guys respond! It was hit! We want to thank you for that support and feedback! We also introduced vacuum sealing in addition to our traditional paper wrap and again, ya’ll responded tremendously with continued support!

We pride ourself on being a family owned and operated business and that is true right down to the brass tacks of the business...I need to thank my family because without them we would be just another run of the mill butcher shop and that isn’t the case...

If it wasn’t for my spouse who does the finances and keeps the lights on...

Or MY DAD Kevin Norris who is my backbone, my go to, my stronghold for 25 years in the meat business....

Or our son Memphis who has worked in the shop since his birth and is now a butcher standing along side me putting in long hours and never missing a beat....

Or our daughter Faye who has 3 sons and a full-time job yet finds time to come and run the cook room making deer jerky and organizing the cook room for us...

Or my cousin Justin who is there at the drop of a hat to help cut, skin, do electrical maintenance, drywall just anything I need to keep this going....

Or my cousin Shaun who comes on a moments notice to cut, wrap, skin and help get me caught up on days I’m buried....

Or my brother James who works all day cooking all of your bologna and summer sausage and doing clean up while I work my day job...

Or my nephew Marshall who jumps in to lend a hand skinning, cutting, and wrapping....

Or the plethora or friends who stop in, tell stories, grab a knife and skin a deer or check a customer out....

I am not a one man show....WE are TODD’S DEER PROCESSING and I am grateful for my family for keeping this business real, keeping it family oriented and keeping it alive....

If we’ve learned anything in 2020 WE have learned GOD first, then family...then Deer! The rest just works itself out!

Here’s to a Blessed 2021 and we will see you next season!!!🦌
