My very first project was completed today. It was a learning experience on so many levels. The construction was basic plywood 3/8 I believe. I grabbed a squirrel cage blower laying around the fire hall, and wired it to a digital timer switch. The blower is encased in 1/4 plywood. Everything is on casters, and the blower is detachable.
I was able to use my table saw, router, and band saw for the first time since getting started. It was a blast to build, and the fellas from the local volunteer fire dept. helped tremendously.
The final picture is one to remind me that I will never make the same mistake again. I had removed the riving knife to cut the plywood. My blade is thin kerf, and the knife was binding the wood. Well when I was cutting a pice of the 1/4 ply it kicked back and went over the blade. I honestly thought I had really cut myself wide open. This was a hard lesson to learn. I’ve been sore all day long. Never ever again will I make that mistake.
