Hi Ray,

It was so cool to look at your workshop in particular because of your table saw. I had that exact same saw (shaft drive included) for about 15 years. I bought it from my dad who had it for about 5 years. I built a lot of projects with that saw and have a lot of memories of using it (I was kind of attatched to it I guess). Well to make a long story short, about 8 months ago the flex shaft broke in the middle of a long rip cut. I was kind of sad, but also glad because I now had an un-expected chance to upgrade the table saw.

I took all of the parts off of the old saw that I thought I might use in the future. The legs and saw base became a mobile stand for my planer so I am still using it. Well anyway, that is a great saw and I really go a kick out of seeing yours.

Good luck,
DanR

Nice shop, but your lathe is WAY too clean… I have been cleaning my shop today and it took me 20 minutes with the shop vac to find my lathe!

The lathe is new that's why the shop is clean. My shop is so full if I buy something new everything has to be rearranged or moved but its getting real close to getting dusty.

Nice shop. A lot of familiar Craftsman tool you have there. My craftsman table saw is older and still in use. I would also like to upgrade but still does the job for me and then some.

PETER-Storage cabinets are made from dump tables that were in a craft store that a friend bought out. One table would make one cabinet.

TERRY- I really like the Beal Buffing setup too. I made bookmarks for my grand daughters class for Christmas and we buffed them out without sanding. They had a nice shine. I am going to put all three wheels on a shaft and mount it to the mini lathe so I want have to keep changing them.

DAVID- Just started using the lathe last week and I think its going to work out nice. It has to be better than the small one.

I like your cabinets that you use for the planer & miter saw. Looks like a good shop. Good to see another Lumberjock from Alabama.
