  • When you think it will be quick.

    I was going to finish up in the shop today, but thought I would plane a few boards quick. There was 7 boards that were 1in thick and I wanted to take them down to 13/16. I got to the last 2 boards that needed one more pass. Next thing I know is way too many shavings flying about. Well the dust collector was full. Which led to a full hose and the chute on the planer is all clogged up. So I had to take the top of the planer off and clean it up. Empty the hose and then the dust collector drum, which is a 55 gallon drum. Then of course clean up the area because those shavings have a tendency to get all over the place. Good thing tomorrow is garbage day to get rid of those large trash bags filled with planer shavings. What should have taken about 30 minutes turned into 90 minutes. Then of course I needed another shower from sweating like crazy from all the extra work. OY

    My many many many years on this earth has taught me one very valuable lesson. The only true 5 minute or less job is writing a check to get someone else to do the work.

      The minute the words "It'll only take 5 minutes" pop into your head be prepared for for everything that can go wrong to do so, and don't make any plans for next two hours or so

        Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

        Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

        Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

        Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

        I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

        Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
