« Part 18: Continued Focus on Dust Collection Part 19 of Shop Upgrades series Part 20: Micro-Jig Gripper Caddy Pictures »

Spent this morning walking the farm, fixing fences, then off to the shoo for a little more de-clutter activity and a few small projects (sorry not pictures this weekend):

- Added t-Track tie-downs to my Kreg K4 set-up, so I can just lock it down to the assembly bench track: No more clamping :-)

- Added a dust collection system to the K4. A mixture of Rockler Small Port Hose Kit, DustRight 4” to 2 1/2” adapter, 4” DustRight Quick Disconnect, Dust Right® 4” Expandable Hose, Hose and Cord holder. Tried it out on next project works fairly well. Goodbye chips on floor and clogging the jig.

- Built a caddy for Micro-Jig safety equipment for Table Saw. The caddy holds two Gripper-200s and associated optional equipment, instruction manuals, and the Microdial Tapering Jig I just picked up past Friday.

Last week I started emptying the file cabinet I’ve been using to store equipment manuals. It all seems too inconvenient to go searching through the filing cabinet to get a quick look at a manual. So I bought a box of 9×12 shop ticket holders and some 3m Command Strip Hooks, Now I have each manual next to each associated piece of equipment. Much nicer way to do things. Was real useful having the Band Saw manual on the top door within easy reach, same with the table saw and associated equipment.

Not a tremendous set of accomplishments but its been 10-12 hour days at work the past few weeks so shop time has been limited.
