I know what you mean and how you feel! I, too have a bad back, bum knee and arthritis and although I know I shouldn’t work more than 4 to 5 hours in the shop, I find myself so engrossed when I’m on a “fun” project that I forget the time and when I finally realize that I’m starting to hurt, it is too late and I have to suffer! When I’m doing the fun projects I forget about the pain and do not feel anything till I stop and then I start walking back to the house like an old, old man!

Be very careful with overdoing it where you back is concerned. I have been more or less out of commission in my shop for gong on 4 weeks now due to the same sort of thing… The meds the doctor put me on tuesday seem to be helping now…
