My Imaginary Shop Helper.......

Barry Irby
>has invented a new chuck for me. It looks pretty much like a regular four jaw chuck, but it is motorized and takes voice commands. You just speak to it and it will "tighten" and "Loosen" the jaws.

I am stunned, because my Imaginary Shop Helper usually just hides my tools from me and makes a mess. Hmmm! Maybe that's what he did with it durring my nap. I have not seen either of them since.

I've asked him to apply the same technology to the tailstock, but I have little hope. He never does anything I expect. What has your Imaginary Helper invented for you lately?
