Well, part of my shop cleanup that I had scheduled was to install the foam board insulation on the second overhead door. I can proudly say that is a DONE deal as of last night, and as much of a difference as the first one made, this second door was even more noticeable. And no I am not talking temperatures here, at least not yet. I am talking NOISE.

With the doors rolled down, I did NOT notice LOML pull up into the driveway.

Hopefully the noise reduction SHOULD be bi-directional, meaning that this should also reduce noise heard outside coming from in the shop…

More scrap, including all of the foam scrap ended up in the trash cart as well.

I am now at the point where long lost tools are starting to let themselves be found. Small items like hammers, screwdrivers, table saws… Yeah, it’s been that messy…

On the plus side, I did get to spend some quality time resetting my rip fence. I had to replace the head piece to it a few months ago and never got it aligned right. Well last night fixed that problem. The alignment is spot on now…

I did manage to break a cheap $3.00 caulk gun, oh well, time for a new one I guess. The cheap spot welds just sort of gave out.

Well, more woodworking related projects will be forthcoming. I need to add upright supports and an upper shelf to my 8’ long workbench, while converting it to a miter saw station. This will provide me with the miter station I have been wanting, and the storage for my handheld power tools that I need. However it will reduce the amount of available wall for my peg board which is NOT a good thing… This means I am going to have to add peg board to the ends of the benches… This should prove interesting…

To me shop improvements and cleaning up and repairing equipment is all part of woodworking, how else are you going to do more projects. Have a good one.
