« Part 1: My antic plans for the weekend........ Part 2 of Ruminations, Philosophy, and Workshop Antics.......... series Part 3: Nearly done with the table saw switch.......... »

Lots of thing goin’ on Saturday…....exercise, lunch with my true love, errands….....

Well I lengthened the cord from the motor to the switch, got the mount figured out to the Vega Fence…....even made it adjustable. Had to revamp some materials usage, some of the aluminum tubing I had was bent. Switched to dowels, thats OK, use aluminum bearings. Please understand, I am making this from scrap and the junk box….....that’s one of the premises….make a first class switch mechanism with no purchases. Doing OK, just a little slow. So tomorrow….hopefully will be able to produce some pictures….....I know that is important to LJ’s…...words are a little tough…..especially my words…....so pictures…........

You know, I am not sure if I should be impressed, or frightened that you are making a switch… But I am gonna watch the progress of this one…
