drill press

the candy-otto drill press is finally upright. it was harder than i had thought as i had to get the lifting chain in just the right spot so it would hang vertical to bolt the foot on.

there is heat in the shop! i had to put in a new 30 amp circuit.  it is a small electrical heater, i really only want to get the shop up to a comfortable 55f, which it manages to do.  the removable plywood panels that make up the walls of the shop came in handy.

now that the dust collector is running i have been working on the system.  the tables saws and the big band saw are hooked up. it’s not the prettiest system but maybe this is just the prototype
