I spent the better part of my Christmas and New Years vacation running electrical connections and moving tools into the basement. I got everything moved into the mens retreat except my 10 inch Southbend lathe. I have no paved access to the basement, and I have to navigate through the backyard that slopes down and twists 180 degrees to get into the shop doors. I guess I will devise a way to move the lathe one day.
Anyway, what a great feeling to have laid out all the tools right where I want them and have them powered and ready to make wood or metal chips. Of course my first 10 projects or so will be for the shop.
New table for the radial arm saw.
Cart for the plasma cutter
outfeed table for the table saw
various jigs for the table saw
new/better fence for the bandsaw
coolant system and other mods for the metal bandsaw.
whew. I will be busy.
Have a great and safe 2006.
