Haven’t posted any updates to the old blog for awhile, so shot a quick video…....Sorry – it’s really shakey and was done in one un-edited take…...I had just finished the morning pot of coffee before filming….....if you are prone to seizures don’t watch!

but have never seen a live video

and at 11+ minuets can’t even see this one

glad you got it with one shot though
must be some good shooting

glad you made it out alive
being scared and shaking like that

Nice tour, but I think the tour bus needs some maintenance work….
I think one of the wheels, that are suppossed to go round & round, is square!!!

FYI: I did not suffer a seizure!!!

The 1/4 sheet sander with inner tube??? Can you show/explain that?

Also the ROS was that a pad it rests on when not in use or something else???

-- Randy-- I may not be good...but I am slow! If good things come to those who wait.... Why is procratination a bad thing?

Holey smokes! Awesome shop Jeff. You got some cool stuff and set ups. How many router tables you got in there? Definitely a nice place to spend some time.

Nice shop! Looks like you have it set up very efficient. I thought I had a crammed shop! Yours is crammed in a good way! I’ll be remembering your tips. I think I know what to do with a few of the five shop vacs I somehow collected! Thanks for the tour!

One question, what the Hell was that “SPROING” sound when you disconnected the sander from the dust hose? I thought I was watching your video with a roadrunner soundtrack!

Randy – the sander in a tube is something I saw on the Doug Stowe – how to build a box video….you should find that one, learned a lot from Doug….

Anyways, you take your Craigslist $35 Porter Cable 1/2 sheet sander, and set it into a little inner tube filled with sand…..it kills all the vibration and it’s great for sanding boxes or any small parts…..

Here you can see where I sliced the hole in the tube, and just zip tied it to the handle of the sander to keep the sand from falling out…..

That other pad under the ROS doesn’t really serve any purpose except to set the sander down…...this sander spins down quick, but my other sanders don’t, so it’s a by product of the old days when I used it for a brake!

Shane….Who counts router tables?? OK, there is the main one plus one on each table saw, plus a bolt on one I built in the early day (Stuffed under the RAS).....and technically somewhere in the shop is an el cheapo woflcraft table somewhere….....sometimes it’s nice to have an extra…...thanks man.

Way cool Jeff. I could live down there.
Looks like a good Minnesota shop – In the basement and meant for hours and hours of escapement from snow and mosquitoes.

My shop now is so clean and empty. Sigh – I never have it right.

Thanks for the tour,
Steve
