Hello Everyone!

Just thought I would post my Workshop Tour video here….

Well actually I edited my Workshop and posted the Video there. If you click on my Workshop Section you will be able to see the Video.

Of course, for them that want the easiest Way! Take a Gander Below.

Above, is the Video to my Workshop, Any comments, concerns or What were you thinking comments are welcome also lol.

I Done a booboo apparently with my Bandsaw. I been cleaning it off with WD-40 to keep the Rust down, Well apparently it Dried up during the winter, well needless to say, I have to take some Steel wool to my Castiron top to clean off the rust.

Besides this, Enjoy the Video.

Todd: i hope so… I’ve got lots to learn bout woodworking, and 30 years to learn it in since we are buying the house lol.

I’ve got some Plans for making a Table mobile for my Planer, probably a Wall Mount Mitersaw Station, not sure bout that just yet, And some other mobile bases for some of my other tools.

I found that wd-40 and a scotchbrite pad do a good job at cleaning cast iron. But I remove it after cleaning and paste wax. ( I have recently found that a ROS with 1500 grit does a even better job and isn’t near as messy, but still wax, wax, wax.)

Wax wax wax works after the steel wool and the wd-40. I have restored a couple of tables that way.

@Rustic: Thanks Rustic, It’s just practice. I’ve mastered some of what I thought was advanced Scrolling in less then a Month. not too bad for a Faster Learner.

@RTB: Thanks for the Tip, I will definatly use that method, Right now I will have to stick with the WD and Steel Wool til I can get some Wax… money is Scarce over this way.

@Pete: Thanks to you also for backing up the tip, Always nice to hear the Great comments, then the boot in the butt ones lol, but I like them all, it helps to know these things before it happens.

Being a Beginner… Well I would’ve never known bout wax, What kind of Wax would be good? Like car wax? or Like a Bees Wax?
