Welcome to the shop. Feel free to comment on what ever strikes you as long as it isn’t Politics, Religion, insulting to a fellow LJer’, curse words or dirty. One warning—then the door to Moke’s Workshop closes…..

Let’s have fun….

I won’t be around as much as others, so Pottzy is going to help me out.

I have been following a lot of you,

Petey-that table is awesome….I have the same right angle sander for my 125 Festool…..it would work much better with a hard backed pad though and they don’t make one for that sander….

Pottzy- I understand you resurrected the mirka….good save

Tell me whats going on in your shop….

Moke: Good to hear from you. Been cleaning up the shop, I know blasphemy, putting things away. Not much shop time doing actual work for a bit. Hip replacement Fri. then rehab. Looking at 2 weeks rehap before much shop time. Drafting tools out, sketch pad so at least do something.

Hey welcome guys…..I was afraid it was only going to be me doing a monolog…

Pottzy- That gate is a work of art my friend….I can’t think of anything more inviting as an entrance to your yard….and BTW the way you guys drink….BYOB I’m a poor guy…I put everything I had including my piggy banks, my HMO savings account, and change in the neighbors car into my shop!!!

Ron- I admire anyone that looks at looming things and looks at the bright side….drafting time instead of shop time…..that is awesome. My mom was a true complainer…..I lived in fear that someone at church would ask her how she was….she had a list, alphabetically, I think. That attitude is infectious, I have to work to be a glass half full kind of guy. But I will not cave! Good luck! As told you in a PM it is not bad at all…..

DeCee40- Welcome….I look forward in getting to know you! The snowblower thing is a little dear to my heart. I and my snowblower spend way too much time together!

I have put Festool sanding stuff in the systainers and non festool sanding stuff in the tstak system…..
The Bosch 75get 6”, triton 6”, three portercable 5” and I bought another Fein multitool for just detail sanding.
I am putting together another systainer stack for routers and bits, as we speak.

Nice looking set up there Mike, never enough tools.

Been chilly here in Upstate South Carolina, so not much shop time. I did go out for a bit and put a set of shutter together, extra for work. Need to get busy on the turning swap project. But waiting for the new Cole Jaw for that Nova chuck. I also need to have a sharping session with the lathe tools.
