When I awoke yestermorrow, a busy day in the basement Dungeon awaited me. A full day of drudgery was ahead of me. It was time to do a “preliminary setup” of my basement shop. I have to say, until the shop is properly equipt & set up; It will drive me INSANE!
Here is the closet that will house my 2HP HF DC, air compressor, wall mounted shop vac and other stuff as time will dictate.
This temporary setup will allow me to get some dire needed shop projects done (as I’m sure you’d agree).
Some of the Projects/Tasks that lie ahead for me include (but not limited to):
Build Thein Baffle “Top Hat” seperator
Run DC ducting through out shop
Build Air Cleaner (repurposed furnace squirrle cage blower)
Build quick, usable “Down & Dirty” jigs, fixtures & sleds
Install two wall mounted benches/counters
Build “suitable” workbench/assembly table/outfeed table
Build base units/storage under two wall mounted benches/counters
Build mobile bases for Jointer, TS, RAS
Rehab “Vintage” DeWalt Power Shop RAS
And the list goes on and on and on….
Thanks, in no part, to the ingenious & talented members here on LJs! It seems that eveytime I get on the LJ site someone is showcasing a shop project that makes my “To-Do List” even longer (yeah, you know who you are!). I tell ya, there just is NOT enough time in a day!
I must confess! I have not been doing ALL of the work in this transformation. My housemate has played a HUGE roll in this. I would not be this far along if it wasn’t for his efforts. By the way his name is Randy. I’m Randy 1, he’s Randy 2 (too), I’m an original and he’s a cheap imitation! So,when I say Randy did ALL this work, I’m not lying!
Just because I took today off (from the shop), doesn’t mean I’ll be taking this evening/night off. I do need to eat and then “Take my Meds” (you know, that insanity bug is going around)! We’ll see! I’m hoping that the immediate shop projects will help to reveal the true needs of the shop. ie: tool placement, jigs, storage and the like. Well, that’s the plan at least!
-- Randy-- I may not be good...but I am slow!
