Default Well that was the last straw.!

CNY Digital Woodworks is moving shop. Yesterday as i was working on an entertainment center for a customer, everything went dark, the saw turned off and I was fed up with this old barn/shop. No breakers were tripped either in the shop's sub panel or in the house. There were odd readings in the shop with the multimeter. I changed out all the breakers and tested again with the same result. Looks as if my main panel needs replacing and while i'm at it change the 30yr old wire going to the old barn and bury it with conduit. That will have to wait. I've been looking at this garage for rent for a few weeks as a new shop. Because of this current issue, i've come to an agreement with the owner for an extended tiered lease for the 18x52' shop. $250 per month for the first six months (gets me moved up and running and through short months in Jan. Feb.) From there it's only $400 per month for the remainder of the two year lease. Heated, good power service including 220v. It's an off building at an old cannery with a giant mill building across from it, Several old equipment sheds and a brook running from two ponds on either side of the road in front. It's rather befitting a small woodworking shop like mine although a little out of the way. In my old shop i have stairs going up to it with the floor being divided between two levels. Getting materials and projects up and down is a paint to say the least. It's going to be hard enough moving my joiner and other equipment but i'm thankful that my cnc is easily broken down and moved. The new shop will have concrete floors and HEAT! The barn was built by my father back in the mid 70's with the craftsmanship and attention to detail that a pig farmer gives a pig pen. It's rotting and really not worth saving besides the cinderblock main part of the barn. The rafters for the gable roof are so missaligned that the center varies up to 6" from the plate to the peak in spots and is impossible to insulate without a truck and spray foam insulation.

Hey Randy,
Adversity breeds invention, creativity, inspiration and character. But you already have those qualities so, move forward with the skills you have earned and you do quite well.


A mutual exchange is not robbery and the free flow of accurate information will lead us all to wisdom.
