I have the luxury of a basement shop, but I still do finishing and dust intensive stuff in the garage. I just finished some heavy mdf routing outside where the driveway meets the garage. It is cold, but no wind. Hat, gloves, coat and good to go. Other than cold it is beautiful outside. I will take the cold over extreme heat any day. Cold you can bundle up and be good. Heat you can’t do anything but sweat. Still have to make some sacrifices though. Can’t put a finish on anything until it is warmer. The extension cord is stiff. Winding it is like trying to coil copper tubing. All said, it is back to the basement.

I always get nervous when I hear about people wearing gloves with power tools. I had a friend that was using a tablesaw outside while wearing gloves, while feeding some wood in the blade caught his glove and pulled his hand into the blade. Quick trip to the hospital to get some fingers reattached.

I do it quite a bit because I don’t have heat in my shop and it gets kinda chilly up here, but it always gives me pause.

Have your say...
