During our Turkey Day visit, dad and I managed to sneak out to the shop and do a little upgrade for his shop office area. We did a little re-wiring and tuning up of the old dog PC that is still serving duty (barely). We added the shelves and he had mom make up some slip-covers for everything that keeps the dust controlled.
Also, during some visit I had noticed that dad had made up a clever little jig to help him hang onto round things without buggering-up his vise jaws. When I got home I whipped one up out of some scrap. Pretty darn handy for a few minutes of effort.
