AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH sigh of relief it has been well over two months now with no shop and I’ve finally healed up enough to rome the shop. BUT then I found problems with my planer. And after two weeks of tinkering the darn thing I finally gott’er fixed! Now I’m off to work! I’m gonna need a HUGE cup of coffee!

screw the cup, just get a caffeine drip in one arm and it leaves both hands free to catch up on all that work :)

That’s great Mark, glad to hear your getting back at it. Most people complain about going to work until someone says you can’t. Don’t rush it man – one day at a time! :)

Mark, glad to hear that you are going back to work. Now I just need to get mended myself. I’m definitely getting tired of the TV too. Got to get out to the workshop and bring me in some reading material.
