    I heard it can be a very enlightening topic, though

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Wire you guys making all these puns? Must be a pretty highly-charged subject.

    I threw away my Workmate when I moved to NM because the plastic spring clip things that keep the legs outstretched had broken on two of the legs, making it a bear to set up. Also, the MDF top had started to sag pretty badly. I replaced it with an older model Workmate (metal spring clips and plywood top) that has become my primary bench for little projects here until I get the shop set up.

    The shop's looking good, Rennie.

    You mean you haven't trained that shop to set up yet. Why I have a dog that I didn't have to train to set up. She did it once & I told how cute she was. Bang she sets up anytime she thinks she can get me to take her somewhere. Even when she knows we won't be going just because she knows we will love her & tell her how cute she is.

    Well, having suffered the slings and arrows of the never 90 crowd ) I decided they were right and I pulled them all out and replaced them with pairs of 45's. unfortunately I miscounted and came up one short, something I will remedy tomorrow.



    I'll be using a hanging system I discovered on YouTube. Real simple and rather sturdy. I can adapt this for various locations.



    This is where the pipe exits the closet



    Tomorrow I should finish the trunk and maybe even some of the drops.

    Pipe colors don't match. The hipster crowd will be upset

    Hmmmm. Will I need to offer a safe space?

    Went as far as I could with the D.C. system today. Everything is run but nothing screwed or sealed. I'll run some sheet metal screws through all the joints someday down the road once I am comfortable with the layout. No glue of course, but maybe some aluminum tape or latex caulk if I discover it to be leaky.

    I'm already considering making the drops along the wall a little shorter. The drop to the far right on the wall will be for the floor sweep. The other three on that wall, the one on the back wall, and the one in the middle of the ceiling I call my flexible drops. Not designated for any particular machine (as the drops for the jointer and TS). The one coming off the wye on the back wall will eventually run along the top of the back bench and connect to a hood at the chop saw.

    I cleaned out the local Menards of 45 degree 6" fittings. Still need one more at the cyclone.

    Probably, the closet will work fine
