    Re: Help me organize my garage

    almost ready to push the bench back against the wall, I am just going to add a hardwood board as a lip to keep 10mm sockets from falling off the back of the bench, then I'm done with needing to get behind the bench to screw in fasteners

    don't tell me it is overbuilt, 6x6s were cheaper than 2x6s

    I have all the fasteners & pegs in that are going on the wall side, jacking up the leading edge with a floor jack and sawdust made it fairly easy to get in place, I'm gonna have to jack up each side to get the sawdust from underneath the posts, I may have to shim one or 2 of em, I haven't put a level on it yet

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    I had a doc appointment in Portsmouth this morning, so it wasn't very far out of my way to wonder over to Highland Hardwoods, in Brentwood, they didn't quite have enuf of surfaced 5/4 in stock, so I ended up getting 6/4 more board feet, added about $75 to my anticipated price of just under $500, total came to $565, got caught in rain just as I pulled in my driveway, unloaded as quick as I could, but my dehumidifier will be going full bore the next couple days, I'm going to buy a new skil saw, my old homeowner model isn't up to this kind of work, and I'm looking to get a larger blade, for 1 pass cutting of 4" wood https://www.amazon.com/SKILSAW-SPT70.../dp/B018E9NJVK

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    my makeshift table saw, my maple was surfaced 2 sides (top & bottom) with one straight edge, I have found the other edge up to 3/8" diff going down the board, so I'm doing it with a fence, c-clamps, and wood clamps to my saw horses, weighted down with other planks. Gotta get a new blade for my son's chop saw, it's dull as shit, it cuts softwood ok, but burns the second it touches hard maple Help me organize my garage-img_2638-jpg

    These are on super sale today. Going to try and get at least 3. They are fantastic for jobs at hard to move locations like under the car or on a ladder.

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    I couldn't see what I was doing sanding, so I did something out of order, I installed an 8ft LED under my shelf, my pics don't do it justice, it is bright, a well illuminated work area

    Re: Help me organize my garage

    I think the $$$ I have spent for tools to complete this project is now $3k±. Once I get my office moved out, I now question whether it will primarily be a mechanical/fabricating shop, or woodworking shop

    yes, least cost/ mile of any vehicle I have owned in recent/semi recent history, probably the most fun vehicle I have ever owned, had over 475k when it got rear ended & totaled

    I don't remember what model year, 86, 87, sounds about right, it was a beater I paid $500, a tank in the snow, that's for sure, always reliable, drove it to the scrap yard on it's own when it was no longer worthy of $$ to get it inspected
