Not touched the scroll saw in 2 weeks!
But I am making progress in getting some shop made equipment done.
So Sunday was busy reworking two old dental lab motors that have sat in my garage for 8 yrs! One was an OLD polisher/grinder that had some scary wiring and the other was a model trimmer that will be converted into a disk sander.
I took a power cord from a computer we recycled and wired it into the switch and the grinder was running great. It was fun as my 11 yr old helped strip wires and we researched the wiring pattern together on his ipad. My dad was an electrician but he NEVER sat down with me and taught me anything electrical. I won’t make the same mistake with my kids. For the disk sander, the model trimmer needed to be massaged gently to remove a beastly cowling….hammers, steel pry bars and finally a hacksaw. My son thought that was hilarious me beating the cr@9 out of this thing.
Then I made a band saw circle cutter jig and used it to make a 10” plywood disk, drilled holes and got her spinning. Have to wait to go buy some sandpaper and make a new cowling, table and motor mount. I also helped my boy get his third skateboard deck going by cutting out his layout on the bandsaw. He is making a Penny Board (small skate board) and has bigger plans for a big Longboard and a Mountain Board. I have to hold him back a little, but the disk sander will help him with his wood work.
I will get some iphone shots up of this stuff soon, now I am wiped out.
