Just Touching Basees...
In that so many member were kind enough to be interested in me after not posting to the forum for so long, I need to give you an update.
I'm not sure that an update is the correct word. I have not continued to post due to the fact that I had still not been in the shop and nothing much to talk about.
Well, the good news is that did get out to the shop today, the weather has warmed up and I have been feeling better.
What a mess it was that greeted me when opened the shop doors, as many of you know, my shop is relatively large one and so the mess is also large.
All of cast iron had surface rust on it along with dirt and grim. I started with the table saw, the router table and the Incra LS positioner for the router table.
After about two hours I was very tired but I had all of the items mentioned above all sanitary and waxed. Sure felt good to be able to get back out there and get started on the clean up. Hopefully, I will be able continue and have the shop ready to use in a few weeks. The weather will have a lot to do with that.
One of the side issues is that the yard between the shop and the house has all be rooted up by the ferrel hogs. Our entire yard clear around hous ihas been rooted up by these hogs. I need to find person with a good blade to come in and work on the mess. The hogs did all the damage in a period of about a week and have not been back.
It is estimated that there are over five million of the hogs in the state, I may have mentioned this earlierk, I just don't recall.
Any way, that's what is goig on with mee.
I purchased an Incra 1000HD miter gaubge for my brother for Christmas. It got lost in the shipping and a second one had to be sent. Twelve ldays later the first one finally arrived. We are sending it back of course. Bob, my brother, is turning bowlss, as I may have told you earlier, I'm waiting to see if the miter gauge will work for cutting segments instead of using a sled.
If anyone wants to clklen up my spelling, he or she is sure welcome to do so, as I can barely see to type this. The letters all run into each other and keep jumping around, but I am grateful that I am not completely blind. So if you can put up with my typing, I'lll keep trying to post from time to time.
