  1. A little background first. After always being a very close family all living in the same area. Hurricane Katrina dispersed us. My Dad survived Cancer but we lost my uncle, then my sister and 16 year old niece to car accidents. I had two brain surgeries in 2 months and we realized how important it was to get together more. So, we had just started a family get together once a month with 12-20 people about 6 months before covid hit. so today after everyone has been fully vaccinated we finally got together for a Crawfish boil. It was nice weather and a great day. It lasted about 6-8 hour

  6. The short boards are 5/4 and the rest is 4/4. In that stack of lumber there is a dresser, 2 night tables, a framed mirror and a bench. That is what is next. It took a month to get the wood. 2 weeks at the mill to pull, band, and bill me. And another 2 weeks to get it shipped. Another of many delays were planned when it got to the local depot so I went and picked it up for the last leg. Around 50 miles. Then after staking the lumber I was breaking and cutting the pallets. And I step on a pop top, cut my heal had to cruise on back home. It really was a nail. Went through the precautionary s

  7. Good thing it was the utility's problem those fixes can get expensive that looks like a shallow bury though. Not many people appreciate how much their water and sewer connections cost. We've been frying family together more often now that a good portion are vaccinated. It seems to me the situation has taken the hardest toll on the grandparents.

  9. Went to weld up the drag this morning, but hadn't even looked at the plug on the cord. 50 amp receptacle in the old building is a Range one. Welder plug on the machine. I have a 10/3 SO cord to put a male Range plug on one end, and a welder female on the other. Ace Hardware had neither in stock. Don't want to make a trip to town Monday, with no assuredness that any would be there, so ordered them from Amazon. Supposed to be here Tuesday. On hold for that job.

  11. I think she’s pretty happy with the new planter/ privacy box for the patio. Still needs some lattice to finish it off but all in all a good weekend. Built out of reclaimed cedar from my brothers old deck and pickets from a fence he tore down. Made a lot shavings and dust with the old planer this weekend Cheers! Luke

  13. Yeah, the repair guy said the pipe was only about 10" below the surface where it crosses under the ditch. Main line is on the opposite side of the road. He said they crew will make it deeper when they return to make permanent repairs. FYI, "frost line" here is only 18", but I haven't seen the ground freeze below the grass roots since the mid-1970s.

  14. You can see just by the quantity of responses over the last few days that dust collection is an easy subject to get information overload on. The old rule of thumb was to do the best you could given your budget. We now have to add availability to that rule. Basically you have chip collection and dust collection. Chip collection gathers the larger stuff and you wear a mask or eject the exhaust outdoors. Dust collection opens the can of worms but fundamentally: - If your return air is pumped back into your workspace (a basement, neighbors or weather conditions that don't allow for a

  15. As for as a .5 micron bag I’m going to say no. Get the wynn canister filter. A bag filter gives you like 30 sf of filter area and the wynn canister gets you 220 sf of filter area st the same micron level. Its easier to clean and will not clog as often. https://wynnenv.com/woodworking-filters/ i second the separator idea. here’s my set up 3hp 2 canister filters cyclone 6” duct 30 gal can to collect dust

  17. Made a couple of brackets to house the vac sys. Based it mostly on the festool plans but just winged the measurements. The vac clamps just drop in and can be taken out without any tools. That way I can them on a horizontal surface if needed. There is a small gap so fit is loose to make action easy. When turned on the clamps suction themselves to the brackets. The brackets can also be raised or lowered about a foot. It can also be attached in a similar manner to my mft. The cord management still needs work

  19. It’s not done yet, but today I was able to get the small side project I was talked into doing with the kitchen helper assembled. It is a small bench one of the kids talked me into that they found plans for in an old book we had. They helped with the layout and sanding of the parts and are going to paint it with some milk paint to finish it off.
