This one is also out of the order intended, but I’d like to keep these things together.

I still haven’t completed the workshop reorganization project. There seems to be so many distractions that sidetrack me.

I recently made a combination shield, & dust hood for my lathe. I looked at a lot of them that you can purchase, but I opted to design my own to fit my own lathe better. It slides under my lathe bed.

I guess you can put this into “Getting workshop organized”, category.

I also shopped around the INTERNET for a lathe chuck for my ancient Craftsman Lathe. I found one I liked at Grizzly. http://www.grizzly.com/products/H6264. I just received it a couple of days ago, & haven’t had a chance to try it out yet. It should be a new experience for me, after many years of using a faceplate.

I’ve also been surfing the INTERNET, trying to find Secretary desk plans. I haven’t found any that have satisfied my appetite, so I guess I’m going to haul out my drawing board, & design my own. That’s usually what happens to me on quite a few of my projects.

I was just outside shoveling our sidewalk. We finally got a little 4” snow cover to help insulate the ground this winter.

Sorry Dennis,
At the rate I’m going, I’m going to be an old geezer before I finish my list.

I thought you were already an Old Geezer. Spry though.

Us younger guys get to say that.

Us old Geezers need every bit of respect we can get, & then some. My Father-in-law used to say, “Don’t make fun of an old person, because someday you’ll be old”. LOL
