« Part 20: Thanksgiving Thursday Tour with Dataman Part 21 of Ms Debbie P's 2007 Shop Tour and Inspection series no next part

Most of the pre-Christmas furor to engineer wood gifts is over for me and it’s time to post a tour I promised weeks ago to JPW1995. It’s time for a tour to the south, now that the ravages of winter have set in with a vengeance, although JP’s shop is far enough north that there is a chill even there. Of course Deb is ready for inclement weather with the beaver hat and mackinaw. But the coffee is on, and when the container is done, I’m sure JP will find good use for it.

JP has a tightly organized two-car garage shop, that rarely has the opportunity to house a vehicle. Here Ms. Deb has the opportunity to take some measurements of the drill press table and tool storage.

There are no shortage of saws in this small shop. Nice compound sliding miter here… as well as a scroll saw and a radial arm saw.

Add on a venerable Delta TS, and as you can see there are a plethora of projects nearly ready to post on Lumberjocks.

I forgot to get all the data on that window unit. Looks like just the ticket to keep the shop comfortable.

JP is a jig and fixture person, with a nice cut-off sled and miter fixtures ready to safely ease through the cuts.

Thanks for the invite JPW1995. Go get that shop inspection certificate!

Being a former OSHA coordinator I really appreciate the call to safety here at LJ thanks for that.

I echo your comments, Sandhill. And I see many other LJs ringing the tocsin, reminding each other that safety is paramount.
Be your woodshop experience a hobby or a professional one, engage your brain before walking into the shop.
1). Understand how your tool works and use the provided safety features.
2). Dress for success (eye, and ear protection, secure loose clothing, jewelry, long hair etc).
3.) Think it through before throwing the switch.
4.) Take breaks and never work with power tools when fatigued, upset, on medication or alcohol. Mental clarity is a first defense against an accident.
5.) Have appropriate first aid items and the means to summon aid if needed available before beginning the project.
6.) If you’re not sure how to proceed safely, ask around here before trying something you are unfamiliar with.

Respect your tools. If it was made to cut lumber, it will do a dandy job on meat and bone as well…

Another nice thing about a Ms. DebbieP inspection. No coming back repeatedly with newly noticed infractions.
She’s a pro.

Great shop JPW. What a waste of space just for a car when you can always use the space for a workshop. Anyway thats what you can do in the warmer parts of the world Well done Miss Debbie & Douglas.

Some of the biggest areas where we see accidents are caused by poor lighting, fatigue and repetitive tasks. Where ever possible use red and or yellow paint on tools that rotate. Never, ever remove guards from machinery. For smokers go outside of your shop, don’t smoke in bed and no sleeping in the ash tray little attempt at humor be safe.

It’s always nice to see how people make use of the space they have for their obsessions.

(and what kind of coffee they drink)!

Nice work space;

Lee

I would think that 2010 would be a good year to re-establish the shop tours. You and MsDebbieP up to it?
