You’ll be happy to know I used my 17 inch Grizzly Extreme Bandsaw for the first time yesterday…just to saw some sections of 2×6 into squares for plates upon which to mount casters. Nothing fancy. It was electrified in October and I hadn’t used it yet. Now I have. I know, nice saw and he doesn’t use it? Well, things happen slowly here. I read once where lots of woodworkers use their bandsaws almost all the time. I can see why. Small kerf, smooth cuts. I also turned on the Craftsman Suck-o-Lux Dust Collector for the first time at the same time as my bandsaw. Oh, the humanity! Everything worked the way I wanted it to work and I’m headed in the right direction…towards real projects. Imagine, real projects…made of wood, no less.
So I glued up these plates on the bottom of an already built table-thingy that my mom had built for her 20 plus years ago…it held electronics for the 11 foot satellite dish when that was the only TV available in this deep canyon. Now this unit will hold my sharpening systems of one sort or another. It should be done later today. A very strange thing happened by the way…while sawing the wood I heard what sounded like screaming…like someone screaming…very freaky. I looked about the shop and nothing. I checked on my mom in the living room. Nope, not her. And then I thought about it awhile…no, I’m not calling the Ghost Hunters…yeah, one of the joints on the Craftsman Suck-o-Lux tubing attached to my jointer was making this weird sound…pulling air in and sounding like a banshee. At least that’s what I think now….maybe I should call the Ghost Hunters….
