Made a run to Rockler on way home from work yesterday. Spent way too much time looking at the toys: Worksharp system, M.POWER CRB7 MK3 7-In-1 Router Jig, etc. Too easy to get caught up with all the possibilities.
Got back down to the business I went there for. Purchase some 4” Casters for DownDraft/Sanding Table Build, some additional miter guides for Band Saw Fence build, DustRight 21’ x 4” hose for dust collection project, and a table saw insert to make a 3/4” dado Zero Clearance insert—didn’t like the metal one Craftsman offers, it has too much of a gap between blade and table.
Spent about a half hour with Rockler staff discussing Dust Collection project and getting feedback on the Trend Airshield Pro. My friends over there didn’t have much to say about its dust filtering capabilities, but loved the anti-fog feature and primarily bought it to protect themselves against flying debris from the lath. Anyone have any comments on the Airshield Pro’s Dust Protection capabilities?
I was hoping this weekend I was going to get back to clean up of East Half of Barn, but likely I’ll be working on new project at work over the weekend. Might be able to steal back about 30 minutes here and there to work in shop.
