I was sitting eating dinner eagerly planning out the jigs that I’m going to make for the router, drill press, TS and BS now that I have all my major equipment in place. I was even excited that the knobs and bolts kit of almost 150pc that I was going to pick up was on a really nice sale. I finally started to feel like I could start making the things that I like and not just always mickying around
As a miniaturist, I have set ups for lots of different hobbies/mediums including resin casting. Why oh why am I all worried about where to buy my jig knobs from when in all reality I can cast them myself!
Of course I need some stock to get started up and will really try hard not to get so side tracked that my new machinery stands idle as can sometimes happen with daily life but once I realized this what type, what size etc etc just seemed less important. No, I don’t want to make mistakes. I hate re-doing things because I didn’t plan properly or overlooked something BUT I know that those other skills that we have that don’t always seem to go together can sometimes make our shops and our projects just that much more ingenious (and when I see some of the jigs and projects – but jigs in particular for me – I realize how many of you out there are truly ingenious!)
So now I’m going to go order my T track, relax and do some practising on the bandsaw until the order arrives :)
Oh and thanks to any that read my previously interrupted post and came back. Nice to see y’all again.
