Here’s how I created a tool organizer for my measuring items. It’s got a place for all of the items I use frequently. Slots in the holding blocks keep multiple tools in each spot. It makes it very easy to find things and a quick way to see if you’re missing something. This is also a location for controlling my compressor. The white power switch remotely turns it on/off. The pressure control valve and water separator are right next to the switch. I used RapidAir for the flexible hose sy...

Less noxious overspray.3. Better finish with no orange peel. Actually it is glass smooth, and seems almost automatic to get perfect results. 4. If you accidentally run the cup out of finish, it just quietly stops spraying. Compare this to the sputtering mess created by a siphon gun. 5. Two...
Progress! After cutting the modling on the jig (which worked really well, by the way), some coping saw skill building and some creative Dremel-ing, the end of the first 12’ piece was complete: The first piece destined for the wall was one of the 14’ pieces, so I cut that square on both ends. Patty then painted them with the primer and pain we selected, Benjamin Moore Navajo White in Semi-Gloss (see modification, below). We left the 12’ piece in its original 14...
Had some shop time today with 42 degrees outside, it was quite a lovely day. my compressor came back to life also – I guess when it goes below 40 the air is too thin for the compressor to be able to raise the pressure in the tank. I also got the radiant heater from Lee Valley. Last time around, by the time I decided to order it- they were out of stock, and just received new stock this week. it works well, not as well as I was hoping for, but decent. To turn it on/off you have to yank...
Dec. 6/08 Last night Rick and I went to St. George, to Morley Miller Machinery. For their Christmas Open House they had a some company reps present to answer any questions about their products. In attendance were representatives from Steel City, King Canada, and BlackJack. We checked out a number of gadgets at the BlackJack display, including some sanding drums that attach to a drill press. You just cut your sandpaper to size, slip it around the drum, slide it into the drill press ...
