    Hijack!

    Congrats to you both that's awesome!! In this world where its become so easy to walk away its awesome to see a couple thrive in their commitment to each other!
  2. You never disappoint @Bmac another beautiful piece!!
  3. I have four of those and they are handy to have
  4. That's what I do, just save them up, my guy did 8 in the spring and it was like $260 ranged from 15" to 38" across.
  5. Shop looks great!! Have you done any posts on your buffing station? I would like more info on that.
  6. That's what I did in my shop works well.
  7. LOL you have no idea how many times I have left those lights on, this is on my list of upgrades! Thanks!!
  8. My dust collector is in a closet with the filter on the shop side of the wall and from my experience you need to have everything out of the shop or the noise level is essentially not affected as it comes through the filter.
  9. I ran my main ducts in the ceiling with drops down to the tools and would have no issues doing it again. Over the 16 years i've been using the system i've reconfigured a couple of the drops but never had a situation where it was an issue, YMMV. Regarding putting the dust collector in a closet outside the shop I absolutely would do that and I would follow something like Gee-Dub's this is the single biggest thing I would change if I ever built a new shop.
  10. I did mine using a BS (tenon) drill press and chisel for the mortise for many years. Now I have a mortiser, PantoRouter, and Domino and depending what I am after tend to use the PantoRouter for both or the Mortiser and BS, my domino is pretty much only used for quick and dirty applications and to be honest since acquiring the PantoRouter I could probably get rid of the Domino for as much as I use it. I agree with the above statements that learning to do them with readily available tools before purchasing a mortiser, Domino, or PantoRouter is a worth while exercise.
  11. I really miss my go to lumberyard since it closed to be repurposed as condo's
  12. This is my situation as well. The DP and a couple sanders are the only tools in my shop that have not been upgraded and while I have looked at new ones I have not been able to justify it yet
  13. https://www.woodcraft.com/products/woodriver-patternmakers-or-gunstock-carving-vise Watch for sales I ended up getting it for $89 after a $10 discount coupon. It was on sale for $99
  14. Not the cheapest but doesn't require batteries and its really bright. https://www.amazon.com/Magnetic-Flexible-Gooseneck-Industrial-Lighting/dp/B07R8H3JFN/ref=sr_1_3_sspa?crid=25UAWBQH5HXTV&dchild=1&keywords=magnetic+tool+light+led&qid=1630120787&sprefix=magnetic+tool+light%2Caps%2C185&sr=8-3-spons&psc=1&smid=A13I4E5IWETHUW&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExWllYNTU4VzE1VkFEJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNjgwMDk3TktCUU5VWDZLNk9CJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTA5MzkwNzkxSUQwQVRRWjEwOTNRJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
  15. Been so busy at work I have not had any shop time in nearly a month but I did get my Woodcraft Pattern Makers vise today, took about 5 months I plan to retro fit this bench and mount this and the gun stock vise I picked up on it. I also received my back ordered steam bending clamps so I can get going on that now as well. Last month I received my new dust shield for the PantoRouter this provides easier access for bit changes Finally one of my birthday gifts last month was a light for the bandsaw works pretty good
  16. 2003 Mazda Miata turbo'd 240HP to the rear wheels vs stock 108 its a fun one. 41K miles owned since new. 2018 MX5
  17. My Bendpak 4 post 9k lift was about $5K delivered with a couple options. Not Cheap but certainly cheaper than another garage
  18. While my Festool routers are by far my best I agree with @Chestnut they are not worth it if your still amassing your tool kit. I have a PC in the fixed router table about a dozen palm routers mostly Bosch Colts bought off of CL for $40 or less. I also have two of the Makita Battery version palm routers that I really like. And yes I know I have a bit of a router problem but there could be worse vices

    Hijack!

    Nice! Like the others I love the color!! I'm gonna have to stop by and check it out after you get it
  20. BTW I can't even see that drawer bottom anymore Looks great!
  21. Yes I do it quite often. Like @Chet I like a real tangible magazine to read but I also use the online for anything follow up its an amazing resource. I printout articles / plans if I need to while I have an iPad in my shop I still like paper sometimes
