The bench photo shows the in progress of cleaning it off. I am trying to clean out the totes so I can get them down to just 2. I have a LOT of surplus junk in them. A lot of it can get stuffed up in the attic. But tools and heat sensitive supplies stay in the shop.
The shot of the new compressor where it lives, for now. Shiny gloss black, and looking good. I could have gotten a 60 gallon Craftsman Professional on closeout for another hundred, but I don’t have 220 in my shop, and I wanted at least the illusion of portability.
The plastic shelving unit behind the compressor has a LOT of old spray paint cans that I am finding don’t work any more, they are gonna hit the Hazardous Waste center next week it looks like! I am also finding things like a set of plug wires for a Ford Ranger I sold 8 years ago, brake pads for my old Saturn (my first one, not the current one) and a gas door key for my 1962 Volkswagen Microbus that I had in High School… And no I wasn’t a flower child…
I have more than a little work cut out for me this weekend. I want to make forward progress with this cleanup / space making project, AND I need to spend some quality time on the ladder working on the ceiling finishing up retaping popped joints, texturing and at least spraying one coat on that ridge beam!
I have so much work to do, I wish I had more time, and money. Actually a lot of the house repair work I wish I could farm out so I could get back to the fun stuff!
I came up with an interesting design idea earlier today, I need to hack it out in Sketchup. Chances are good I will need to shim the bottom of my mortiser to insure it’s dead level to the miter saw, but I might just have this whole thing licked soon. Cavernous compartment storage and all…
