The thumb is healing nicely; still encased in protective armor but I have a doc appt on Monday so that should get removed then.
The great thing about all this is the loml decided that we should go on a safely shtick in the workshop (I even tried talking her out of it in the name of fiscal prudence and the recession – no dice) – so now I also have a dust collector and a SawStop PCS on the way – looking forward to that. No projects or any fun activities to write about though since I sold the other tablesaw (ended up getting only ~50c on the dollar for a 2 yr old saw kind of sucks but hey it is sold and now a replacement can fit) and every time I want to start something I realize I need to rip wood that won’t fit in the bandsaw. My weekend project is to setup some interim dust collection using whatever I can find at home depot – don’t want to spend a bunch of money on blast gates et al until after I figure out what is working for me with the new setup.
Also general organizing and cleanup of the shop, maintenance of tools and similar boring tasks but I always seem to enjoy my woodworking time more when the shop is orderly so this will be good.
Hmm… ETA next monday for the vegetarian saw. Got the 220V line installed – all is in readiness… I hate waiting.
