As promised, the video for the install of the shelf for the Thien trash can cyclone separator. It is now in place and gives me room for getting other stuff out of the way!

Closet shelf brackets get used for a number of needs in my shop as well. Somehow, I ended up with a bunch of them, probably from the previous remodels, so I have no need to buy them. Looked like you were using reclaimed wood for the tray, something I would have done as well.

Impact drivers might make your driving screws a lot easier, but a drill with a clutch works pretty good in any case.

I have cut out all the pieces for the new mobile mount for the drill press, and I am putting it together. I will completely construct it minus the drawers and then mount the drill press on it. Then I will make drawers and install them at my leisure.

Have a good day…

I could have made L braces for it, but waned it done NOW. I am WAY behind in my work and need to catch up….

I whipped up just such an L bracket for my StarShower to mount it up in the tree so I can get the laser dots on the house instead of the tailgate of the truck! I managed to mount it up high enough I can’t reach the motion buttion! Oops…

I think I remember now why I have so many closet brackets. Before remodeling my den area my den was in a large bedroom with a fairly large closet. I used the closet for a bunch of computer related stuff, and put up about 6 shelves using closet brackets. They are relatively cheap, quick to install, and strong. I wouldn’t apologize for using them, they just make good common sense. And you can remove them quite easily if your layout changes.

...and the layout changed, I removed them, saved them, and I now am slowly putting them back to use in various places.

Got most of the basic construction done on my DP mobile mount. Have to put in a shelf, that doubles as an additional piece of structural strength, and then trim it out with 1/8×3/4 inch pine stripping that I make myself. The trim strips prevent the edges of the plywood from delaminating, and in general absorb abuse very well. They are glued and pinned into place. I have never had one of the trim strips split, fall off, or fail at its protective duty.

Later….

Oddly enough, I whipped together a quick braced L bracket out of plywood yesterday to mount up on a lodgepole pine to mount my Starshower Motion to get it up off the ground and get the lights on the house instead of the lawn… I probably should have used this same method for the separator shelf… The shelves for the separator and shop vac are mostly to get them out of hte way. They see very little use with the wood shop having a full on dust collector, but I have drywall work going on so they will see use soon…

I had an issue with my DC ducting that I will cover in my next video, probably release that one tomorrow…
