I just wanted to check in and say HI.
A little about me…
As each year ticks by I am getting that much closer to having a shop of my own; the only reason I don’t have one right now is because for the last couple of year my wife and I have been buying rental properties, so we have been moving a lot (5 moves in 5 1/2 years) and none of the places have had basements or garages to setup a shop in. We are ready to start looking for another property in February, and this time it is one we are committing to for 5-7 years, as we are out of money for buying houses, and the wife is pregnant with out first kid, so I think it is time to settle down for a while. With any luck the next house will have a space I can call my own, I am hoping for a 2 car garage (I work on cars too), but even a basement would do.
However, I got a lucky break today… My boss decided we needed a new bandsaw at work. I chose a Grizzly G0555LANV for us because they were on sale last month, which means I get our old one. It needs some work… new tires, possibly bearings, and it hasn’t had any maintenance in about 10 years. The old tires were glued on with construction adhesive (who knows why)... but I can’t argue with a free bandsaw. It is partially disassembled right now, but it is all there.
Here is a pic of the new Griz, and MY new Delta:
Sorry for the long post, I was supposed to just be saying HI!
