    hey, you didn't wring it out when we went for coffee. Folks , that's one sWeet ride, but too small for this bear. Need a sky hook to get me out of it.

    by the way, the re-organization looks fantastic!

    Allen, this is a t-nut.



    Larry, best I can tell, Allen's baby is a Porsche 911. Not real great wood haulers, but they get you to the lumber yard really quickly.

    Somehow I just don't see it being able to handle 4 x 8 sheets.

    not a 911, just a boxster, the only one I liked the look of the real roadster.
    Wish I could drive it more these days.

    Allen the shop is looking real good. Interesting to see you put your compressor on a dolly. I am in the midst of planning mine to go on the wall and insert a automatic drain (i think harbor freight have them). That way i can build a box like Glenn did and silence the unit. I mounted my extension roll over head in the center of the shop that way i can reach anywhere with a nailgun or what ever i want to use air for.

    Sorry but i am not a fan of the car, must be something wrong with me but i would sooner get a nice luxury pickup. I say sell the car and while you still can build yourself a spacious custom shop. With aircon, heating, lighting and all the little extras. Use the garage for wood storage.

    Hey you have had the thrill of driving it and its really a battle in that part of the woods you live in so what the heck get the luxury in your shop at home instead of it being in the way.

    the car is something I wanted since I was 12. Ofcourse I couldnt afford it till I was 50.

    What is a luxury pickup?

    I want the compressor on a cart, since I do intend on using it soon to hang molding in my home, along with other minor stuff.

    not every day is that good.

    I cant figure out why I was having such a difficult time just trying to bolt down a machine. What usually takes me 6 minutes, turned into a days work.
    I ended up using the Tnuts, along with the pieces of wood I cut to get exact height.
    I had to use the Tnuts on left side as when I built the table, I completely forgot that the machine had to be moved over because of the wide swing, so I drilled in the Tnuts and secured it.(could not pass a bolt through with 8 inch apron)
    Its height is fine now, I will now be able to build the folding support shelf, I received the brackets.
    It was an incredible task for me to work under the table at first, just to secure bolts without tnuts...........my eyes just fought me every second of the way, so I enlisted some help, and her expression(I called out and said hey, I need you to crawl under this work table for me) shows just how happy she was to get down into the filthy sawdust filled floor to help out her daddy.
    She did it anyway. I told her since I dont have a dog, she can be my shop mascot.Its a good think little girls grow up loving their daddies.
