    So, What Did You DO In Your Shop Today??

    OK, for me mowing and gardening season is over,,, I get to spend some QUALITY time in the shop.

    Those projects that have been nagging me were left on the back burner because the weather was so nice.
    My propane heaters are set up,,, I am ready to start some projects.

    A couple weeks ago, I needed to drill some larger holes, so I finally ran power to the drill press.



    Today, I ran power to the Jet 9x16 saw,, IT IS ALIVE!!
    I really missed the Jet saw, I have been making do with a Milwaukee Porta-Band.

    So,,, what did you do in the shop,,, Today,,, ?

    cadplans; well show us some builds, so we can view them, I like coaltrain like to follow along on them. I have a wonderful bi garage, but the only way to heat it, is by wood and coal, and with 16ft rafters , well u know where all the heat goess too. and since this stupid artihits hit, I depise the cold weather even more. ok-enough of me start building-ha. big jim

    I got the old age aches,,, also,,, but, I just go to the shop, then suffer later,,,

    I picked up this RFM a couple weeks ago,,, it is all in primer,,, now,,,



    Well,, not quite all... that mower had a LOT of parts,,
    one time I dis-assembled an Ariens rear engine mower for tweaking and paint,,
    I swear this mower has more parts,,,

    I was going to build a three point hitch drawbar, and I drilled some 1" holes in a 1x3X20 steel bar,
    but, now I have decided I instead need to simply make a 2" receiver hitch for the drawbar.

    I found a piece of 2 1/2 inch square tube,,, so I needed the saw,,, that should be built tomorrow.

    Yesterday, I also spent some time cleaning off this 6x6 foot workbench,,,


    I am going to put the RFM on it,,, then add 2 outboard front rollers, or wheels, to the mower,
    I have not decided,,, yet,,,I have two rollers,,, I have two 9" pneumatic tires,,,, Hmmmmm,,,

    I'm still organizing my new shop but I picked up a storage cabinet at Habitat for Humanity Restore. Put it in the shop last night and now I have to figure out what to put in it.

    Great thread! While my shop is nothing like most have - 100 year old barn with wood plank floors - it is great for me to go out there to sit and tinker with stuff. I put my kerosene fired torpedo heater in the shop section for this winter which will really help as it will warm it up within 10 minutes or so.

    That cabinet would be perfect for storing the portable power tools. Pick a cube and stuff the circular saw in there along with all the spare blades. Another cube for the drill, another for the belt sander, etc...

    I have all mine in individual storage boxes but a wall of those cabinets would be a beautiful thing!

    I was thinking the same thing. I'd be right at home with that.
