Part 2: a little progress

So wish summer would come back so i could work out there without my fingers freezing. a wood stove would be sweet but…. no job means no money for luxuries. Been trying to get the cross-cut sled done for the new tablesaw. but climbing over things to find or gather what i need is frustrating as hell. http://i1302.photobucket.com/albums/ag132/dgiacchino69/new%20shop/DSCN5708.jpg I’m in dire need of some exterior sheeting to close off the other 2/3 s of this pole barn then i would ...

Part 3: hesitant progress

well a little progress has been made unfortunately i’m hesitant to do too much because i may lose the place with the recent employment termination and lack of resources in new state. <div></div> But anyway i was going to move my 4×8 work bench in as a alt. out-feed table, but instead i added on a 18”x40” removable leaf for now. I did get the base and stationary fence done on my cross cut sled, next is assembling the adjustable miter fence and attaching it. got...

Part 6: shop re start the new RMR #6:

01-28-2018 08:42 AM by DsRMR | 3 comments »

Well today was a Grand day for my shop and my own moral and self worth after the last 3 months of dead-do nothing make nothing, (including money) Days. I’m hurting financially big time and have a couple small projects that fit right in with the Lovers holiday coming up in less then 3 weeks OMG… And my shop was far from usable.. Until today… In addition to added insulation and extended shelves above the workbench on back wall, I also put to use a handful of drawers that were...
