I have the day off and so after taking care of some boring items in the yard, I turned to my to-do list for odds and ends around the shop.
I knew I could feel better while free hand routing with a starter pin or template routing. I had a spare router fence guard that came with something or other. I drilled and tapped three holes and created an extension that will keep debris at bay when doing these operations:
I added the head of an old parts cleaning brush with the handle cut off as a lower wheel brush on my little Rockwell / Delta bandsaw. I used hot glue which seems to hold fine. I added a couple little pieces of wire just in case. That way if it does ever come off, it won't go flying around in there and possibly taking out my blade:
The old mouse pad had seen better days on my little riser blocks (bench cookies). I fooled with trying to clean the old stuff off and then realized that just cutting up some new ones out of scrap made more sense. This self adhesive rubber pad comes from Peachtree. I picked it up at one of the shows and finally got around to needing it. I put a thin coat of shellac on the MDF to give the adhesive a good grip:
Now I better start breaking down some mahogany for a belated wedding gift that's on the list ;-)
