I’m pretty excited that Saturday is coming up quickly. Not only will my bench be completed as far as the building goes, but the landlord is paying to have 220 v installed for the bandsaw!! Nothing like having something done for free. Of course he is having me redo his personal kitchen at his house, but come on, it’s still pretty cool to be able to use my bandsaw again. I have the GO513X2 Grizzly 17”. It’s basically brand new with very few cuts made on it. I bought it before I lost everything, and have been stubborn as hell to keep it. Everyone can kiss my @ss, that’s my bandsaw and I will die with it. LOL. It’s the only “new” tool I have left that has any significance to me and I can’t wait to be able to use it. Anyone else “attached” to their tools? I had to sell a lot of things to pay bills in the past, now things are looking up and I’m hoping to use what I got to make some money, as well as some cool projects.
Anyhow, just thought I’d share the fact that my bandsaw will be up and running shortly. Now if I can only wade through all the $hit to get to it….....................................

Congratulations. It’s always nicer to use a tool than to look at it.

Got to agree that my band saw would be one of the very last tools I’d part with. So handy! Hard ahead… of luck…................

He forgot to come. It’s been post poned until tomorrow. I was very dissappointed. I wanted to finish my bench and need to shape the arms on the bandsaw. I suppose I don’t need it, but….........I want it. LOL. I’m like a little dissappointed kid that didn’t get his way.
