When it's all done, Wifey is going to have second thoughts and move you right back to the garage. She'll decide she has a use for that room.

Well if she does, she has earned it. Putting up with me for near 38 years!! I will tell you all she would have to do is ask and it is her space I can live in the garage, better there than the dog house. My wife is to be honored on this special day. When I hear other guys talk about a wive who is not understanding I feel very fortunate with Jenelle.

Default Work on hold for a while

Had first of thee eye surgeries Thursday, first of the cataract surgeries last will be to correct the double vision I have had for a long time. Doc say not lifting, no grunting no bending and espically no saw dust for several weeks. I will say already that it is worth it!! The shop can wait till this gets taken care of. When it is all over, should just wear reading glasses only when reading. That would be great, I have worn glasses since 1st grade nearly 60 years now.

I guess I will just have to hang out here and see what you all are doing and enjoy it that way,

Jerry, take care of those eyes please. I'm glad to hear the first surgery is ok. Please keep us informed as to progress.

The work continues, today I had a couple friends from church come over to help out. We started at about 9:30 and worked to 5PMI spent two more hours cleaning up for next go-round that will not take place until Monday or Tuesday when they can get back over and finish the door.

The two guys are Bob and Bill, great friends. They will get pay-back. Once we get the last of the rock up get it all taped and finished then I will start painting the room. Then move cabinets in and figure how I will put every thing in there. The plastic on the ceiling is there to keep that insulation stuff from drifting down on me.

I cannot get over the fact that for the first time in nearly 60 years I went all day with out wearing glasses. Until the right eye is done I need them working here at the computer, but that should change when the right eye is done.

Default Just a reminder

Jerry

(You probably already know but I still post so as to educate other new woodworkers)

To contain "dry wall" dust & very fine toxic wood dust you may need
Ridgid VF3502 "dry wall" dust bags plus Ridgid VF6000 HEPA cartridge filter for your shop Vac.

Normal filters will just pass dust finer than 5 microns through & those toxic fine dust would circulate airborne for hours in the room.

VF3502 filters 95% 0.1 micron dust such as dry wall dust.

VF6000 HEPA cartridge filters 99.97% 0.3 micron dust.

Hey Jerry,

That project is coming along nicely and the area sure looks different from when I last saw it. Sorry we are having a hard time connecting for a visit, but hopefully soon I can make it over to see what you have going in person. Good to hear that the eyes are doing well.

Thank you for that good word. I doubt what I am doing is completely the best but I run an Oreck air purifier there when working and have to clean it out every day or so. The one we use will one day, I hope, will be replaced with a more industrial dust abatement system. The filters you mentioned where can I get those? I am using a Ridgid shop vac on the saw, sander planner and joiner. Gets a little old moving it around all the time but it is better than the dust.

Maybe you can help me out a little, my shop will be about 410 sq ft, what would be the best system available, keeping in mind basically fix income situation?

Just thinking about it I guess I would like to have the main part of the system in the adjoining garage along with the air compressor for noise purposes.

Again thanks for the input it really is appreciated.
