« Part 1: Building a New Shop - The Beginning. Part 2 of Shop in the Sky series Part 3: Got some work done... »

Well, I haven’t had a chance to work on the wall yet, but I did purchase some new goodies for the shop!

I had to go to Bellingham, Wa today for business, so I stopped in at the Grizzly showroom to take a look around. Good thing for me, bad thing for my wallet. I ended up walking out with the G0555P 14” Polar Bear Series bandsaw with the 6” riser block kit and a G8027 dust collector.

Now I have to assemble them and hopefully get the walls put up this weekend. More to come.

I have that very bandsaw! I love it. I named mine Jeff. Getting it together was a battle and I blogged about the adventure in my blog. I would like to mention that I don’t recommend my ‘building a pyramid’ method of getting him together, but I didn’t have anyone to help me. It is much easier with two people.

Good luck with your new bandsaw.
