    Hello again

    I finally have gotten time to again be here and enjoy the forum. A little over 2 years ago and changed positions within the company that I work for and it seems that things went down hill from there as far as time is concerned. I moved from service to parts and then to the parts manager at the location I am at. I enjoyed what I did, but it was wearing on me. The end of May it came to a head and I asked to go back to my old position and a service tech. I didn't get out of the parts job till Dec. as there was finding a new manager and training involved. Then the harvest season was upon us and I was still stuck in parts. I am out now and just getting back into my wood shop here at home. First thing was to clean it up. Now I am doing some rearranging. ( I hear tell that the rearranging is never done.) I am happy to be back. I have an outfeed table for the tablesaw in the works and then a good work bench.

    Sorry to hear about the turmoil at work, but you're a survivor so be thankful it has led you back to shop time!

    We understand about shop rearrangements! One constant about all of our shops is that they're never "finished".
