Nice job, Steve...great idea to store the saw blades.

You mentioned a floor accessory to vacuum up your floor, I assume...?

Be careful you don't suck up any metal, like screws, just in case they get to the impeller.

Nice shop...good for you for keeping it clean and organized...

Sorry to hear about your Golden...

Thanks Guys,

I still haven't done much with the stand project. The extensions and hardware are installed but the finish sanding and 3 tops still need to be completed. Maybe in a few weeks I'll get motivated and back in the shop. All parts are rough cut, and dry assembled with exception of the flat top. That would take an hour tops. Most is cut, dry fitted, and now needs sanding and fine fitting then finish applied and assembled. It really is a bigger project than I anticipated but that wasn't helped by my getting side tracked by a few other projects in between.

I also had to work out some not so clear instructions. Assembly of the table tops was also not clear at all and took some thought to get done so they would last and stand up to their intended use. I made a few changes like I usually do hopefully making them somewhat better. Using block spacers on the two boards on the bottom of the table taps to maintain spacing made a difference but wasn't called for.

Nick the floor attachment was for the shop vac but when I got my ShopSmith I also got their DC and found it was OK but not as good as I needed so I used it primarily for clean the shop floors. After I installed the CV1800 I had adapter that would take it from 6" down to 4" and then again to 2". If I had two blast gates open the 2" was fine, where only one it was far to much turbulence. So I have attachments that work on 2" or 4" for floor sweeping and surface sucking....w/the 2" I have the shop vac wands and attachments and the 4" attachments from Rockler.

I appreciate the reference to our Dixie. It's been a while but still very fresh. We haven't been without a dog for over 30 years and just can't do that again. But it's a big adjustment both in habits and routines. Going to town for stuff isn't as rushed to get home and let her out, places to go aren't as planned. Food that hits the floor now needs to be cleaned up where that was automatically taken cared of. It's the little things like the nudges in the morning for wanting to be held or to go out. I really miss that 55 pounds of blonde fur....
