I’m bad at getting these out on a regular basis, but here’s one after almost 3 months! Been busy, but picked up a few things, and managed to get a little more progress made on the new shop…

I like the driver you made. That is slick with its own case. The turnscrews you received are amazing too.

You touched on a ton of stuff in this vid… gramps tools make your heart happy to use, the pcs you make are insane and cute cat is cute.

Fun too see your work as always and glad you made more progress in your shop. Thanks for the update.

What did you do about the water issue?

Thanks Tony. A bit happened in the 2 months I didn’t share anything lol

Re the water: Waited it out, so far lol It’s been a minor issue with heavy rain too, though. That is a project on the list for this summer yet

I’m famous! My things made a Mos video!

C-man DP looks super clean.

What’s the purpose of skipping boxes with your electrical, and why go so high with the run?

I’m sure you’ll get to see them in future videos too, being used… they’re pretty sweet! I’ve been happy with the DP, and I haven’t even cleaned anything yet, that’s how I got it (though I’ve oiled a few parts)

Skipping boxes because I’m alternating two circuits every other outlet, rather than having an entire wall on 1 circuit. I wanted to be able to run a mobile dust collector or something (likely my shopvac and a cyclone for a while), I’d prefer to be able to have it on another circuit from whatever power tool I’m running, with out having to have the cord go to a completely different part of the shop. The 3rd wall will have a 3rd circuit on its own, as I don’t intend to have woodworking stuff over on that side.

Running them so high, because I didn’t want to put them anywhere that I might drive screws over 1-1/2”. The current run is right at the height that I’d like to mount a bench. Going up that high, I figured I wouldn’t ever put anything up there. Even shelves or a lumber rack would probably stay lower, otherwise the top shelf would be useless. I know it’s probably unnecessary, and uses more wire, but it made sense in my head lol

Skipping makes sense to me. The cost of copper would have killed your second idea for me though. Ha.

It’s not that bad, I’m only doing 2 walls and 11 outlets. A whole house, warehouse, building, etc that way might suck, though. The worst part was having to climb up and down the ladder to drill and run wire, and staple
