« Part 18: Moved in and up and going but not finished Part 19 of setting up the new shop series Part 20: The biggest problem I have is the shop is running but was never finished »

Well guys a long time coming due to finances and then trouble finding a good roofer that was willing to climb on the roof of the shed to put the comp roof on. But at last I found Pedro he is a roofer who is doing the comp roofs in the development going in down the block. We quickly settled on a price and he re estimated the materials and said the other guy was trying to do it cheep and that he would not space the shingles that far apart . So in less than 2 hours the two brothers had the roof complete. Tomorrow I plan on finishing the door to the shed and I hope it goes as planed. With the completion of the shed my focus will be entirely on the shop. I have several improvements in the works on the shop. Including a new 100 amp sub panel and 2 new 230 lines for the new Saw Stop and for the New 60 gallon 3 hp compressor. Finally a compressor that can keep up with my sand blaster. I can see this helping my big plane restorations a great deal. Also I am installing a big Rapid Air System in the shop. These are the guys that plumb your compressed air throughout your shop in lines that are flexible yet strong. This is not the cheep junk they peddle at harbor freight. I went with the professional series of hose as the runs are long and I have several drops in the shop one by each machine and one by each workbench and one in the driveway. The Big Compressor will be in a small free standing shed outside this tiny shed is a one day build at most it is more like a closet than a shed. But it will be insulated for noise suppression and it should work out there very well. I am also about to finish the first of two workbenches I have to get the chops set right and install ed then I will finish the bench the tops are already flat and have been stable for weeks. I need to make the tool trays and then install both vises. I am very excited to bring this to a close so I can use bench one to finish bench 2. As all this heavy work has destroyed my old bench. It was a nice light work bench with bad vises but it was flat and I used it all the time now it is begging to be put to bed. I have used the other bench to do things when the top was sized and bolted to the base it was a joy to have a big solid bench to work on. So I must focus this next week and get this done and ready to go. My Electrician had a bad fall and he will try to finish my wire job next Saturday. I ask you all pray for his speedy recovery from a 14 foot fall off a ladder. and that he will be well soon so the shop can get wired for the new tools. One more piece of good news the shed being water tight has made it so that the bicycle wall in the shop is now gone. This gives me 10-12 more feet of wall space Things are looking up Cheers my friends
