More progress to report. Not a lot of progress, but still progress…

I managed to completed destroy the bearings in my old B&D Edge Hog edger, which really wasn’t a heart breaker. I have been itching for a gasser for a long time anyway. My local Ace Hardware had an Echo on clearance on the cheap. So it followed me home… Now the problem I had was the hanger for the electric would not suffice for the much larger gas model. So a Closetmaid yard tool hanger gizmo also followed me home. Some rearranging of the yard tools rack area allowed for space for the hanger and the new edger.

I have probably spent at least 6 hours over the last 2 days cleaning and organizing in the shop. Particularly on the old workbench… TONS of sorting later… I have much more full small parts bins, and much less full workbench…

And lastly, on the new workbench. The dog holes have been lined up, measured, marked, and drilled… I need to get with the lower shelf, and some bench dogs now. So far it is pretty sturdy though. Happy so far!
