« Part 114: Dave explains how a Thien Cyclone Separator works. Sort of... Part 115 of A journey into the workshop. series Part 116: Oh crud. And junk, and debris. Time to clean up again! »

So I got busy with jamming the stuff that belongs in the totes, and playing Tetris with fitting it in underneath the table saw extension wing.

The week has been interesting with family and the holidays coming up, lots of planning, lots of sleepless nights getting stuff done. VERY little shop time…

I have several new videos I need to work on, but the holidays and work are killing my free time. (I get to work a shutdown this weekend woo hoo!)

As soon as the holidays are over, I am planning on finishing up my networking / structured wiring. Will post a video on that. LOTS of cable management work to do there, more drywall, plenty of paint….. Mostly busy work…

Maybe you ought to make a map, or directions, to find things under that table… (-:

Sanding an filling the DP mobile base. Should be done today, with any luck.

Otherwise, fairly quiet around here, until Christmas comes…

Later…

The totes are labelled. There are 5 of them.

#1. Table saw / router accessories. #2. Drywall / paint tools and supplies. #3. Electrical parts and supplies. #4 and #5. Misc crud catchers. Must sort, and purge those soonest possible.

I am working shutdown this weekend, and have been tied up with issues with my elderly father in law all week. No shop time for Dave :-(. Or at least very little.

I will have some time tomorrow. I have to go through the shop with a trash bag and collect up the stuff that needs to hit the recycling center. Plastic drone body (stupid tree!), metal cut offs that are too small to be useful, cardboard etc… I should be ready to get some video work in Monday night, I have about 6 shoots planned, At least if I can get them done and ready prior to Christmas. Not much time to be done with them… They are, and not in this order.

#1. Using a hand riveter. (Your discussion of the screws made me give rivets serious consideration). #2. Where’s that thing? A place for everything, and everything in its place… maybe? #3. Harbor Freight texture gun mud prep, use, and cleanup. #4. Long term owners review of Harbor Freight mobile bases. The good, the bad, and the ugly. #5. Drill Master 18V cordless drill Vs large auger bits. Who will win? #6. Happy Hanukkah, and Merry Christmas 2016 from Dave’s Workshop! (Yes, I will be in a Santa Hat!).

You sound busy, too busy.

Regarding rivets, if you are using them in a place where no maintenance is ever likely, then fine. But the problem with DC ducts is that they occasionally, in my case rarely, get blocked. I remember clearing a blockage just once in the last seven years or so, but then it becomes a detective story, and you want to be able to disassemble things easily.

Gave my hands and wrists a rest yesterday. I detected some overuse symptoms with the sanding of the DP mobile base. I will probably get back at it today. I spent yesterday doing some programming for hobby stuff, and trimming the Christmas tree.

Later…

Once I get the next video up with the demo I am planning on doing the rivets and serviceability of them will become very clear they’re not quite as permanent as you would think they are. It’s a little something I learned working in an automotive Trim Shop back in college years ago.

Well, I skipped ahead to Video #5. Just seemed like the most fun, and able to get done with the shop being a mess… Not published yet though…

Got the Christmas message prepped and scheduled to drop at midnight Friday…
