i am starting to get the side panels together for the power strip.  the holes are for outlets, i won’t fill them all, it’s much easier to make the holes now than to try and cut them out later.

i finally got to use the big shop door to lengthen the tables saw ripping capacity. the top and bottom pieces are 10′-2″.  they are salvages from the stairs that used to come off our back porch.

i am designing a low wall to run between the machinery in the shop that is not against a wall. this will give me a place to run power and dust collection.

auction

Filed under: old tools — howarth frank @ 9:40 pm

i went to an auction in seaside Oregon today, i got a few little things.  A big angle grinder, an auxiliary air tank, and two chucks for the big candy-Otto drill press, one of which fits. (yes that’s a popsicle stick)

planing

Filed under: projects — howarth frank @ 8:40 pm

i planed the sides for the garden boxes.  the switch went out on the poermatic 180 planer, i had to break out the powermatic e-16, which worked great.
