Ya, it is messy. But that is my shop. Sorta looks like half a garage doesn’t it? Heated, but not cooled. When the weather gets warm, I let my tools alone. All Summer the mess piles up in the shop, then I spend half the Fall and Winter picking up, cleaning up and putting things away. Actually, it looks a little better today, late January, the more I do out there the better it gets.

A clean/orderly shop is a sign of an insane mind!
You might be crazy, but you are not insane!
Is that an old school DeWalt Powershop RAS that I see??? I have one, of a slightly newer vintage, that I need to rehab.
BTW: Welcome to LJs and thanks for the tour.

Sharp eye, DIY, yes, I think that saw is about as old, or older, than I am (54). It …. sorta runs. I have the motor running, finally, it needed a capacitor and all wiring from there back. The table is my work, kind of following the big book I bought (for more than I gave for the saw.)

I was working on that this afternoon, matter of fact, I could not get the table horizon to agree with the saw. It was off a ton. So I took the table back off, hey, I had a broken weld!

Tonight I will be varnishing, tomorrow I will go look for someone who knows how to weld. And I might go look at another ‘boat anchor’, there is one for sale about a 45 min. drive from here. I think I can turn a modest profit.
