  1. Just a quick drive by of my shop in transition. As y'all can see, Mama's car fits!
  2. From the album: John's Shop

    This is my shop now, after a big downsize last summer, we are able to park my wife's car in the garage now. Before there were many machines here, with a big ol Table Saw and workbench where my Shopsmith now sits till I am done and I roll it away to the side of the garage. All in all I am very happy with what have now, and I am doing many operations with less, and I am getting better at using the Shopsmith, it's a fine machine for me.
  3. Much to contrary belief, I am still alive and working in the garage/shop since we moved from So. California back in October to Bowling Green, KY. We have had so much going on with getting our house in order as well as getting hooked up with a great church in town. https://livehopeful.com/ We have been getting involved in church life and they have just built and opened a new "Pregnancy Center" on site for expectant moms who are looking to choose life for their baby over abortion. My wife has been volunteering a couple of days per week and I have been busy picking up things for them and helping with some repairs. With all the cold weather in the garage, I was having trouble getting stuff done because it was so cold. With all the metal hardware in my spine the cold really messes me up. So after talking with Ron Dudelston on the phone, he suggested that I insulate the metal roll up 2-car garage door. So I went to Home Depot and picked up styrofoam panels and used construction adhesive and metal duct tape and installed 1.5" worth of foam. Insulating the door made it about 15-20 degrees warmer which made my life much easier. So I have been able to get started on building storage over the garage door. Got a bunch of 2x4's and long lag bolts to screw it all into the studs for storage of lighter weight stuff like Christmas stuff and other more lighter stuff so I can clear out the floor space in the garage for putting up some metal garage shelves so that I can start digging out my power tools and such. Today I should be able to get the 2 metal shelving units put together.......hopefully. Tomorrow Tami and I will be dropping off the Schnauzer at a "Doggy Day Care" in town overnight and head to Nashville for the day and then go to the "Switchfoot Concert". We got a hotel there for the night after the show. We have a couple of neighbors that will keep an eye on the house while we are gone. We are soooooooo looking forward to getting away.
  4. From the album: John's Shop

    This is a shot of my shop looking in, from our driveway. This was a nice evening, things just felt right, and I walked off and out of my shop, looked back, and snapped this picture. I think it looks pretty cool. If you blow the image up, see the end of my workbench, one of my kids left some artwork on the surface.
  5. Working on garage shelves for my son and I think I made better progress today by myself than with his help last night. the brackets on the back wall he helped with. Today I cut long supports and shot ones and put up the side wall brackets so far.
  6. TGIF Cold weather finishing As fall progresses, shops get colder and we need to understand what finishes we can use in cooler shops. Let’s remember, finishes cure in one of three ways Evaporative (Spaghetti*) – these finishes cure by evaporation of their solvent. And when dry, they can re-dissolve in the same solvent. Examples: Shellac, Lacquer, Wax Reactive (Tinkertoys*). These finishes cure in two steps. First the thinner evaporates, known as “Flashing off.” Then the finish molecules form long chains by the chemical reaction with oxygen, known as “polymerization. Examples: Varnish of all types, drying oils such as linseed and tung Coalescing (Soccer balls*) These finishes also cure in two steps. First the thinner evaporates, then the larger molecules of finish, softened by the solvent, get close and bond to each other as the solvent evaporates. Example: Water-borne finishes, where water is the thinner and glycol ethers are the softening solvents. Flexner uses these analogies* to explain the differences Before looking at each of these, a basic chemical principle is that heat effects chemical reactions. The general rule for most reactions is that every increase of 10C or 18F degrees doubles the rate of reaction. Thus every reduction of 10C/18F doubles the length of reaction. Another thing to remember is that reactive and coalescing finishes can take several weeks to fully cure – long after they are dry to the touch. So what about finishing in a cold shop: Evaporative finishes – these will cure, though at a slower rate because the evaporation may be slower. Air movement will help. Reactive finishes – these will also cure, but also at a slower rate. Again, providing fresh air (i.e., oxygen)will assist in getting the reaction to occur. Just give it more time. If you need to thin, turpentine, a slower flashing off thinner, may help to getting it to flow out and level a little better. Coalescing finishes – these are the exception. They don’t cure well at lower temperatures, typically 65F. May vary by brand, but should not be your first choice in cool shops. Of course, one option is to finish the item in your shop and move into a spare room in the house (with SWMBO’s approval) to keep the curing on track.

  9. I am making progress on the shop redo but it is going slow. I am only working on it when I get home at night so it is about 6:30 to 7:00 when I get into the shop. To make things worse, it has been raining here everyday so I couldn't move anything outside while we moved things around. I have moved somethings at least a dozen times just to get to where I needed to be. I was never good at rubik's cube but that what this feels like. I know you can't tell much about what is going on but we are getting things close to where the tools will be located. This layout is giving me more room about the tools and more open space in the shop. My shop is a two car garage separate from the house and is 24' x 32' So here in this picture you are looking toward to back and across the shop. I moved my table saw to the opposite end of the shop where it had been and moved the sanding table that was in the middle of the shop to a place behind where I am standing in the picture. So now I can bring in lumber and cut it to size at the chop saw and them move right over to the table saw and the jointer is at the right end of the table saw. So without moving all around the shop all of those actions can take place right within a few feet. I have moved my Grizzly Planner to the middle of the room and it has it's own DC on it now. The Drum Sander has also been moved to this end of the shop and I have removed the rolling legs that came with it and I am building a rolling cabinet that takes up less room and has storage to sit under it. I am still working on where I am going to move the router table to. With better weather expected the next two days, I am hoping we can get everything not needed out of the shop and have room then to actually sit things down and see how the work flow will work. It is a huge mess, but I am really enjoying looking at how we work and making the flow hopefully a lot better and give more open space in the shop. Since I don't have to share it with anything else I am not too concerned with having to move the machines very far. Several of them are on mobile bases so I can move them if I need to. More update as we get there.
  10. Last year was a great year working in the shop but it sure pointed out many short falls in the layout. But we were so busy and I just didn't have the strength after the surgery to change things. Since Christmas rush is over we are taking a break and redoing the shop. A better flow from bring the wood into the shop to working through the process and back out with the finished project. Right now on paper it looks great, I'll let you know how it goes when we put it all back together. This weekend I got everything taken apart and started the process of moving things several times. I would have like to taken tools outside and then brought them in as they were ready to be placed but it has rained here everyday. So we are working around things and just moving as we can. Right now the Delta Table saw is upside down and I thought I was going to replace the base with an original base but it doesn't fit the model so we are back to the make shift wooden base. The top is off the saw and everything is getting a good cleaning and checking then all realigned. About the time I really got all of this taken apart I started to wonder if this was really a good idea. Oh well it is started so now I have to finish it. I sure hope the after pictures look better than this mess right now.
