« Part 5: at a dead stop Part 6 of setting up the new shop series Part 7: oops i forgot storage »

Ok the last 2 days were filled with good intention.s i had a couple of planes to set up and a few things planed to get done in the shop. WE MY SON AND I and my daughter in law busted some ass in this latest heat wave we got a set of six shelves on brackets up not my first choice but i had them so they fit into the budget. we also mounted the 10 inch 3 way speakers to the wall used the 3rill to mount it it drove the screws into the wall they were a full 4 inch screw. not as much torque as the pc 18 volt which drove them in like butter but not bad for a lighter tool. next we put up a full set of pipe clamp racks and a second clamp rack simple design a half a 2×4 and screwed it to the wall.

Clamp Rack with my collection of clamps

The 24 inch 48in and 100in BORA WIDE BODY CLAMPS

The 6 shelves not really loaded up yet

This is the progress i made in the past 48 hours along with working on some hand planes, real happy with most of this for now. i would like to replace the shelves with cabinets when the budget allows it. we also emptied 5 big boxes of stuff and put away a ton of tools that need a home and we will keep plugging away I will have to treat the kids to a night of fine dining when i am caught up on the budget front. We also filled one of two metal cabinets with tool boxes and tools they all go in there real nice and if you know whats in each box it will be a convenient way to have my tools organized.

Dude, your shop is coming along very nicely. I can not wait to see it all completed.

Ps, I am waiting patiently for that 608 you are sending me.

Lance, I have the tracking number, thanks. I will post a picture of the 608 when it gets here and I will tell everybody where to get their restored planes.

I will keep looking for new shop improvements fro you.

I pray your health will allow you to do lots of woodworking still in the years to come.

Hey, Dude, the shop is looking good. Hope you get that healthcare whipped into good shape. I am an old Tennessee medicineman, aka pharmacist. Look forward to seeing that 604C. Stay healthy and in the shop.
Later…
