Really nice set up. Is there a dust collector?

Thanks Ron and yes I use a 3hp oneida. Should be on an upcoming pic. Seems you can only post 6 at a time. I have to get my wife to do that stuff. JB

You’ve got a shop that most of us would envy. Very nice set up. How about some projects?

Great shop with all sorts of goodies, so naturally I have a couple of oddballl questions, what is that rope in the
windmill holding up? Does that windmill alternator provide backup electricity or what? That item that looks
like a router base attachment above the lathe tools, is it for making spirals in lathe turnings, and how does it
work? Thank you for making us drool.

Hey Gus, thanks I was unable to put in much esplanation with pics last night as my wife was uploading these for me. That rope you see that is vertical from tha windmill platform is holding a birdfeeder. And that mill is not for elacticity it pumps water. I ve got to bring it down soon though to put new bearings in it. After all its only 70 ish years old. Thanks JB
