    Shotgun day.... Day 2

    Shotgun day is what the day turned out to be. Had too much on my mind to do any serious wood cutting or layout, but needed to do something. I thought of the push block that Stu posted in a Jig and fixtures thread and made one of those littler rougher looking than stu's but it works Next I looked over at a couple of dado jigs that I copied from Glenn Bradly, that needed to be finished so that got marked off the todo list also. By the way, thanks Glenn!.

    Walked over to the sanding center I put together and figured I'd clean up the old belt/disc sander. I had some new belts for a while but just never got around to changing it. Got that done but then realized the belt wouldn't track in the center of the wheel. Some how part of the adjuster assembly got bent. So I took that apart, straightened it out and now that's fixed The photo shows the part that was bent. It is very soft steel. Geez I'm on a roll I next set my sight on my DW 733 planer. With 160 bf of sapele to work over it was time to install the new blades that I bought last fall. That went pretty smoothly as I had taken the blades out last summer and hit'em a lick with a sharping stone until I got the new ones so the process was still kinda fresh in the brain.

    After that I did 2 loads of laundry, made dinner, and swept the kitchen floor How was your day

    Here's some photos to go along with the story!

    Hey, my day is going just fine, no need to see those pics

    Royall, looks like you had a great day!

    BTW, if you have any more of them safety push pads around, you can make more than one push pad for the tablesaw. The one you show is good for smaller stuff, but one about 6" wide is really nice for the bigger boards, that are just too small to put through by hand.

    Cheers!

    That's spelled right but, just in case there is a misunderstanding . . . it is not a floatie toy for the pool .

    Royal, what a great day. I love it when a day goes like that; line 'em up and knock 'em down.

    Shotgun day.... Day 2

    Well I went out to the shop today and decided it was time to take the saw off the mobile base. It hasn't move sense I parked it where it is and I see no reason to move it It's a hassle to clean around too. Started out taking the out feed table off then the fence rail and the right extension table. Pulled the wings off and Troy (my neighbor) helped lift the saw off the base. Cleaned the saw innards out and loosened the top up and rest the miter slot to the blade. Got the saw back together and adjusted the fence to the miter slot and zeroed the blade and rest the TS Wixey and courser on the fence. Set the blade to 90* with the other Wixey and still had time to sweep shop up! Now what to do with the old mobile base Probably put it in the attic untile I die and let someone else wonder about
    it

    The one thing I wish I had done while the saw was apart is seal up the inside dust tray/baffle/shelf or what ever it's called with duct tape. Just too much sawdust leaks out underneath the machine. But I forgot
    Whats wrong with the calipers??? I'll tell you what's wrong with it. I can't read it anymore I use to use this for building transmissions but then along came digital and I used it and put this one away (Dad used it for reloading bullets years ago) When I quit turning wrenches I sold the digital (like a big dummy) and now I can't see the small lines good enough to read the darn thing
