Christmas was pretty good to the old workshop…. I recieved two retractable cord reels which are great and gave me the needed motivation to finally wire in some new outlets. A dust collection system in the works and have some planned upgrades to my mitersaw station on the table as well…..stay tuned.

Shop upgrades are coming along. Added a storage cabinet, some new overhead lights (those T5 florescent bulbs are sweet, bit pricey though) and tweaked my drillpress/grinder cart. Up comming shop projects on the horizon are getting some sort of organization going on my work bench and mounting the planner, joiner and belt sander on mobile bases. Would also like to build a wall mount cabinet for my hand planes and hand saws…

Thanks Marty… should see it now. Can barely move around around down there for stuff piled in floor… lol I am getting more behind every day and it dont look like its gonna get better any time soon.
Projects would probably be better if I had some of that cool Marty high-end equipment. My shop looks like a HF ad… lol

Hey Buster! Just stopped by for a visit to check out the shop. Looking good buddy! What are the blocks hanging on the bandsaw? Just last week I saw your MAN CAVE saw at a flea market. Let me know and I’ll get the cops after the thief! Did you make the medical symbol. That’s cool too.

Thanks Candy. To answer the first question…. One of the side effects of using those HF casters is that they dont have locking mechanisms. Nothing worse than working on a piece of equipment and having it decide to roll away. Those are stop chocks. They are based on aircraft chocks…basically two 45 degree angle blocks facing each other with a wooden strip holding them together. I placed two on a length of rope to make them easier to keep up with and store. Also a tug of the rope and you can unchock two wheels at once…less bending over that way…lol #2 Now thats embarassing…I am so gullable. My wife gave that to me for our anniversary. She told me she had knitted it out of Barney the shop dogs shed hair she had been collecting…sheesh. #3 One of my coworkers is an intarsia guy. He gave those away for Christmas presents last year. He does some amazing stuff. His webpage is www.tellicointarsia.com if you are interested in seeing his work. He made us a wooden replica of barney the shop dog…he spent like three days shaping the toes for it. It was then I decided I had no interest in trying it. All those little pieces of wood would be laying in the yard when i slipped over edge and chunked them out…lol
Thanks for stopping by buddy

Locking casters are expensive. This is a great solution-saves money for more important things AND uses up scrap. I’m liking your wife more and more! Tell her to keep up the good work. ;-) I did check out your buddy’s website. Wow!!
