glad you figured out your electrical problem, those can be a real pain if you don’t have things labeled, all the rest looks good, my only comment is that your opening where your AC is, the bottom plate is just one 2×4…with your unite being pretty heavy, it would have been better to have it beefed up some…I’m one to always make sure there is structural strength….just a thought….thanks for the blog update…

Thanks Greg and Grizz, the AC unit will have knee bracing on the outside with between a 1/4 to 3/4 drop toward the back for run off, plus that 2×4 is just under 24” sitting on two jacks and a cripple, it ain’t going anywhere :)

I have to say that retirement has made me soft, I’m not used to this kind of work, my feet and keens are taking a beating. :)

Randy,

LOL! I’m not the only Woosie! I’m actually doing strength training to get into shape for milling with my chainsaw mill.

Pictures of additional space looking good, and now I can see the supports in your trusses.

I checked out LED flood lamps?? Whoa! Pretty expensive. Wanted to improve work lighting. Decided to use my lamps that have a porcelain base ( used for turkey roosts in winter w infrared heating lamps ) with a 100 watt florescent. Does the job

What size ducting are you running for dust collection?

LEDs aren’t that pricy Tom, the cans are $8.00 and the trim kits. Are $19.00, what are you considering to be expensive?

I’m going to be running 4” pipe for the DC plumbing.

Looked at LED floods at Menards ( Like Home Depot only it’s my home away from home.) 27 bucks! that was for a 75 watt LED flood. They are suppose to last longer than we have to live but????

Cans probably not so expensive, didn’t need those.

what size is your Dust collector motor?

I’m using the HF DC so I believe it’s 1HP

Tom, these are the trim kits I am using, not flood.
