Lucking into it

A mini spring came over the shop this weekend, and I was able to spend a good amount of time out there. I thought I was going to be able to suspend the Ridgid vac from a ceiling joist, however it’s just simply too big. So, I had to spend a bit of time trying to figure out what to do next. Why? Well, I ‘won’ a refurbished Festool vac that should greatly help out tasks around my house and if I need to take my wares on the road. I’ll tell more about it when it comes tomorrow.

So, I ended up moving things around again. The lathe back next to the table saw, and the old router table finally came off along with the extended rails. I’ll have to go back in and mount a shorter table that fits better. Also, modify the dust collection. I also did a bit of housekeeping on the smaller scrap plywood collection – tossed anything that wasn’t pristine, and the rest got re-stacked or tossed back into the bins, now sitting under the workbench.

This had the added effect of making a bit more room for the systainers. No sysports yet, but they are now stacked against the wall instead of in front of the lathe. I raised the hardware bin up a bit and can now roll the planer underneath. Unfortunately this did temporarily relegate the miter saw to the back wall. I don’t really like this scenario, but will live with it for the time being.

 

So, coming up for the rest of the year: I’ll have my 2014 review/2015 outlook, I’ll chronicle the Christmas build, check out the new Fezzie (or two) and perhaps a couple of other things.
