Was able to work in the ‘new’ shop a bit today. It’s amazing when you have to take apart tools, move 11 hours away, and then not be able to get to them for 3-4 months…. how many ‘parts’ go missing.

-I finally was able to put the lathe up on it’s bench and now running.
-Bandsaw put back together and on it’s stand, now working
-Hawk Scroll saw, put back together with all missing parts found now working.
-Air Hose/Reel all hung from ceiling.

Need to get done:

-Table Saw (got a new Link Belt on but that’s about it)
-Drill Press needs work and then mounted on stand.
-New Work bench need to be made
-Peg Boards on walls.
-All the rest of shop lights.

Hoping to have most of it done by the end of Saturday.

(Oh, and I have a church work day… so I am told to bring my Chain Saw… so it needs to be cleaned up and three chains sharpened.)

Sounds like you’ve been a busy person. I know what you mean by trying to move all of that equipment. I always dread having to move…I always think about this when I buy a new shop machine. :-) Good luck…keep us posted with some pixs of the new layout.

I know where your at, been almost 4 years and I’m finally getting some type of order back in this new shop. Hang in there when your all set up that’s when the fun starts.

Have your say...
