The move from Florida to Minnesota has been a long process. I packed up my shop and stored it in a shed in September 2013 when we moved to an apartment and waited for our house to be built. We moved into the house in June and after a fun duck hunting season ended…woodworking season began!
I now own a 2,100 square foot ranch with a full, unfinished basement. This will be my third basement shop and they are my favorite. All the tools are assembled/placed, lights installed, and the dust collection system installed. I will begin wiring my outlets tomorrow.
I caulked all the dust collection pipe seams and fittings tonight. It was then that I remembered I had not switched the motor back to 220 volts. I foolishly crowded the motor to the ceiling and couldn’t see to do the rewire. I had to take the flywheel off in order to get the motor down…oops!
I designed the stand so that two 6” diameter elbows would hit the ceiling perfectly without any pipe between them; I should have just cut the extra straight pipe and given myself more room to remove the motor and flywheel from the top of the cyclone. That will be one of those future projects that will never get done!
Looking forward to full-up woodworking again. I’ll update the pictures of my shop in my profile in a week or so…
