We were in sunriver this past weekend, and I found a spindle sander in la pine on Craig’s list. A 10 mile drive south and I have a great working spindle sander.

I won the bid to day on a powermatic no. 72 table saw. I’m excited about having a dedicated ripping was. The 72 has a 5 hp motor and a 12 or 14 inch blade.

Here is a movie of the long spin down time of some of the motors in the shop

The dust collection is set up for the radial arm saws. I have been building the shop over the last few months, and have not worked on any projects. This should change soon as I am inching to build something, with the new shop. The first thing most likely will be a new storage system for the closet in our bed room. Then maybe a bench with shoe storage for our front entryway, and there are always new ideas to turn on the lathe.

The mortiser and disk sander are set up. I need to sharpen and find new bits for the mortiser. The disk sander needs the dust collection hooked up. It takes 15 minutes for the disk to come to a stop. It runs very smoothly without any vibration.
