As a busy summer winds down, I finally had a chance to get into the shop. Spend the day cleaning up clutter arrangong the floor mats and setting down a list of things I would like to get done before winter sets in. As my shop is small, everything is on casters and those on my sjoberg bench need to be made retractable to lower the bench to a better work height. I have three drawers that need to be installed on full extension glides under another bench. (I moved these from Milwaukee 2 and 1/2 years ago). Also have some hardware to be sorted. Also need to build a dust catcher to go behind the mitre saw.

I did finish tuning the band saw. New tires, cool blocks, cleaning and alignment sucessful. A good deal of goey oil and fine sawdust cleaned out.

Look for shop pictures soon.

Good to hear that you got some shop time in. I stopped by my shop yesterday for the first time in about nine or ten months to pick up some tools. It was a sad sight. My last three projects created a ton of dust and I never got a chance to clean up. I am REALLY looking forward to cleaning up and organizing.
