« Part 26: Goodies arrived yesterday! Part 27 of Tool thoughts series Part 28: The Punch-list »

Hi folks, It was a good week, in addition to the shipment from woodcraft the other day, I also stopped at a Woodcraft Stick & Bricks store yesterday, picked up a couple of things, saving 15% because of their anniversary sale.

I eventually want to pick up a HF DC, at which point my little old Jet will hit the classifieds with a budget price on it, so some other new woodworker can have a leg up on their shop. Looking to that point, I picked up a couple of fittings so I can build a chip separator drop box. Essentially the same thing as the trash can separators, only box instead of can. why? Awhile back over on Family Woodworking where I’m a Mod, one of the founders of that forum described building his ‘dream’ shop. He built an incredible DC system, which would be way overkill for my compact shop, but the drop box idea always stuck in my mind as a ‘good thing’.

I also picked up some casters for a new air cleaner which I’m going to build around a furnace ‘squirrel cage’, which will double as my planer stand.

If I can get through the distractions, I’m going to build a router table today.
pics and what not when i get finished.
