Topic tags/keywords: question shop

I am living in PEI now, had to leave Newfoundland to go to school. It killed me to leave my shop but I couldn’t exactly take it with me and set it up in my apartment… the landlord may not like that lol. I took the tension off the bandsaw, cleaned everything up, put the heat on to room temp. for the winter, locked the door and left. I have someone to start up the table saw every once and a while so the belt doesn’t stiffen and I am just wondering if I left anything out? Don’t exactly want to return home to problems as anytime I am visiting I will definitely be down in the shop doing something, you can bet money on that! Any feedback would be great, thanks.

You might consider putting a heavy coat of wax or some other protectant on all the cast iron. I would also remove all the belts.
