« Part 3: not going as fast as i would like. Part 4 of setting up the new shop series Part 5: at a dead stop »

Today all day i moved things out of my extra room that i used this summer for tool testing due to the high heat in the shop I have been very busy in the shop and so i had several evaluation tools in the room in the house . My office has been in the sitting room that is attached to my master suite. It has been like this since i was moved here 5 years ago. so today i moved everything except my desk to the new office and moved all the review tools to the new shop downstairs so from now on the new office will be called the office its also where i produce rock music and play guitar. The wife is very happy about this and i hope i can keep her happy with all this work. again i had loads of help today my son and his little wife were here and she is a real hard worker we cleaned and emptied all my rock n roll stuff from my bedroom and then emptied the old office everything is done but the desk. I have a bunch of artwork and photographs to hang in the office as well as my swards from the lord of the rings movies.

it turns out the out feed table was made 1 inch to tall because when i measured the table saw it was not dropped to the floor major screw up. so tomorrow ill cut the legs off one inch and all will be well we will move the desk as soon as i can get the jack wired in the office its a phone line now but the house is wired with cat6 wire in every room even the shop. next after the desk is moved we go back to the shop and will be putting in a set of brackets for a lumber rack and mounting the wood rat in its new place I will be very happy to get back to the wood rat evaluation i just got the new mortice rail and it does very nice tennons already. then is just putting everything away and a small storage unit for some of my home building tools. I really cant wait to be back out there a few hours a day i think it will help me out a great deal. so tomorrow ill be taking photos of the shop clean or not the next task will be putting in the dust collection and the air plumbing. I may need to add some more electricity to the shop but we will see how it goes first with only two machines going at once i should be ok at least for a while. I also have to send out some planes on Monday so i have to finish them tomorrow during all the madness.

On a side note the Dr said i am not getting better and he made me permanently disabled and the lady from ssi said i will be getting ssd so at least ill be having some income since the workers comp doesn’t pay me enough to live on ..
