Ok, part 2. Instead of taking a nap, decided to clean house in the shop….

Lots of just junk in the way….other items just needed put away, finally. This “bench” used to be an old square table, somewhere in it’s history, it lost it’s legs. So now, it sits on a pair of sawhorses. This was the original bench when the Dungeon Shop first started up. Grinder and sanding center needed to be switched around. First, wire wheels were removed from the grinder. The “good” brass wire wheel was moved to the other side (left) of the grinder, and a brand new 1” wide “fine” grinding wheel was installed in it’s place on the right.

Sanding belt runs away from the grinder. Still needed to move the drill press ..

And redo the drop cord to power all of these toys. reran the cords, slid the DP down…where it will not interfere with the other tools. Old screws that wer holding the DP to the bench were stripped, new ones were the cords all hooked up..

Drill til needed a “topper” to keep the dust off the drills. Had a 1×10 x4’ upstairs…hauled it to the shop, cross cut it for length, ripped for width. Needed some pilot holes drilled.

Little 6” sweep drill. Then needed to countersink the holes…why change bits, when I can just change drills..

Added this to the til, after I had moved the til to it’s new home. Three screws to secure the til, six for the topper..

Didn’t even take the drills out. Had a little overhang on the bench..

There is also a bit of overhang on one cover the #11 drill. #12 drill? It is off hanging with the eggbeaters…

Just was too big..Stanley 14” sweep drill. Problem with the topper? Well it is a nice flat shelf..

And nothing stays empty very long in this shop. Most of my squares, couple spokeshaves, and a marking gauge are now hanging around there. May have to build a holder of some sort?
Same with out in front of the til….set the til back far enough as to not get in the way of the drill press. Which left a nice, flat front porch…the cordless drills already claimed one spot…and a box claimed another..

Might be a couple more boxes show up? The sanding center takes up quite a bit of room..

And there is a metal-working vise back there…

To get access to the Monarch vise, the table can come off. I might have to find a better spot for the old vise, sometime. IF I do a lot of metal work. For now, it will be ok. A lot of the “non-junk” went into the big tool chest..

Five drawers, no waiting. Now, I just have to figure out what to do with this..thing..

Kind of in a bad spot….being right next to the plane til..

May see what I can recycle it into. I also, still have a bit of pine left over..

Looks like I might have something else to build? Stay tuned…
