Here's something you won't see often; our garage door up. I decided today that with loads to do in the shop the best thing I can do after my lumber score was to get rid of the small scraps I've been holding on to and would probably not use. So I started cleaning. After I filled the trash can outside with 20+ trips through the house and out the front door, I decided to raise the garage door and fire up the gas powered blower.
It takes about 30 minutes to prepare the door for opening because of the way I have it secured and because I use it as a wall and prop things against it (not heavy but the door doesn't need to be raised with that stuff in place). So with the door opened for the first time since the CNC arrived in July 2016 I began blowing dust and chips that I couldn't get to by shop vac. Several hours later, along with about 20+ trips into the attic to put things up there that really didn't need to be in the shop, I finally finished.
We're expecting our first wintry mix tonight, schools closed tomorrow, business opening late if at all, etc. but it was pretty nice today. It probably got into the 60's but it was a great day to do this - low humidity and not much wind. You can look at the sky and see weather is coming, though.
Happens every other year at least, once each year if it works out that way - door open -
Perfect for this task - I think it got down to 64° before I closed the door, stayed surprisingly warm inside even with the door open for 4 hours or so -
Completely filled with scraps of Walnut and the occasional odd piece -
I'll do it again next year...
