    junglejohn got a reaction from DuckSoup in Problems with my drum sander. Help?   
    Thanks for the input everyone. I will try to address each of your comments in one response. I purchases the SuperMax sanding strips specified for the machine. I am only taking very light passes (maybe .010 to .015 per the digital read out) and I have a soft pine board to use for set up. The instructions say you should "butt" each wrap to the proceeding one but a video on the Supermax site says leave a small gap. Maybe I wrapped it too tight and maybe I should have left the 1/16 or so gap. I am out of sanding strips so I can't try again until they arrive tomorrow. Its a 45 min drive one way to Woodcrafters. I will try again tomorrow.

    I have a rather new 16 32 Super Max drum sander. I don't use it as often as I thought I would so the installed paper installed at the factory worked until I decided it needed changed. I purchased extras when I brought it at Woodcrafters in Dayton, Ohio. Replacing the paper is a genuine pain. I followed instructions and the tail end of the spiral wrap quickly tore off. I tried again with another piece - same thing. I go on youtube and watched several videos and the procedures they illustrated. I was doing it exactly the same way they did. I tried again - same result. I am frustrated and right now I think I would trade the entire unit for 5 minutes in a phone booth with the engineered who designed it. Does anyone have experience with this? If so - any suggestions?

    Just go out and pick up a 1911. One shot to the head usually works. If not a 2nd shot hasn't failed me yet.

    I have been away from project work and will be for little while. I decided I needed to totally reorganize my shop. Emptied every shelf and turned over every drawer and am putting things back in a more organized manner. I just couldn't take it any more. Looking for things I knew I had and having seldom used tool in convenient locations while more used tools were not that accessible. Threw away old finishes, paints and practically empty cans of various stains and lubes. I found a bunch of stuff I totally forgot I had. It is amazing how much stuff you can tuck away in nooks and crannies then forget about. I have old tools and duplicates that I never use. I am going to get rid of probably 100 lbs. of old stuff that is not worth the shop space. I also need to do a pasture fence walk to find and fix weak points before winter sets in hard. The engine blew on my John Deere 400. Parts are not available so I can't rebuild it so I have to buy a new engine and that is going to set me back a couple grand. And I thought I would be able to retire and relax a bit. I don't know how I ever had time for a job.

    Looks great Gunny. In my shop re-org I am going to consider something similar. BTW, I am shameless when it comes to copying the good ideas of others. Where did you get the long outlet strip?

    Hugh was the kind of man we need more of - not less. I never knew him but I consider that my loss. My hopes are for peace and loving memories for his family. 
     
    Frankly, I was amazed when I saw the picture of his younger self. He looks almost like my identical twin. I showed my wife the picture and her hand went to her mouth in shock. I found myself in similar combat situations and the story and his picture swept me back to the sweat, mud, insects and intensity of the experience. Some memories never leave us even after 50 years. I regret that I never had the honor of welcoming him home.

    About 4 weeks ago I had a project engineer I used to do work for call me and ask me to come in and help figure out how to smooth out aa air conditioner assy line that wasn't keep up with their anticipated production rate. It was designed and built by a competitor as we were to busy to get it done on his schedule a year or so ago.  I found several areas that needed work. I ended up concepting and laying out the solutions. My old company is finalizing the design and making the changes so I have been pretty busy. But I got a pretty nice five figure check. I did however find time to work on a small cabinet, am almost done weaving the seat on a Danish bench as well as come close to getting my stained glass project done. By the time I get all of that done I will get to work on a set of barrister book shelves for my daughter's new law office. So, I have been pretty active for an old guy.
