I’ve been busy…very busy.
However, I took advantage of various sales to get the equipment discussed in my earlier posts: the SawStop 3hp PCS, Rikon 18” 10-345, and Penn State Tempest S 2.5hp Cyclone. All arriving Friday. Well, the mobile base for the bandsaw, a ShopFox unit, arrived from Grizzly today.
I’m going to sleep at 5am and at my desk at 9 to get work done, the house is a mess, the space for the equipment isn’t ready, and the electric isn’t run.
I’d pull my hair out if I had any left. Ugh!
The guys delivering the SawStop and Rikon will get them to the basement. The rest is up to me. And their is a 20 year old Delta drill press in the garage I need to move downstairs also. I also have to install the Incra fence (bought on sale in December), make the router table top for the the router lift (bought on sale at the Woodworking show in February), etc.
Any suggestions on my order of priorities. I’m thinking clear the basement space, clear the landing, put plywood over the entryway floor (should that be 1/4” or do I need thicker? do the pieces need to be fastened to each other? If so, how?), then run one 20amp@220v circuit to test the stuff when it arrives (Rikon said for an 80ft run from the panel I should use 10 gauge; I wondering if I should bring in an electrician and install a subpanel near the equipment).
What am I missing?
Its been raining since Saturday…now I have to mow the lawn (3.5 hours).
