    Machine Covers

    I coulda swore I saw someone post about HTC machine covers earlier today but I cannot find it. At any rate, I was looking at some the other day while at Rockler with LOML. I came home last night and she had cut up a canvas drop cloth and sewn up these for me.

    Score, quite a find you've got there, congrats on the machine covers too!

    I agree with Darren...nice score on both counts.

    We tend to wear out the holes on the edge of a plastic shower curtain every few months, so I save them as use them as dropcloths and to cover my tablesaw with when it's being used as the finishing table. I also lay a few of them out on in the driveway when I'm cutting and sealing turning blanks. LOML would tan my hide if I got oil or wax spots on our driveway. The shower curtains save me from having to get out the pressure washer.

    Very nice, Glenn. I recognize my bandsaw under one of those covers. You know there's no free lunch...now you must build something for her.
    Cheers

    Depending what step I'm on with a project, I may not use a machine for a few days. If I don't keep the dust/sawdust brushed off it holds the evening moisture and marks the cast iron. Covers keep me from having to brush them off every time I get ready to quite for the day.

    OK, I guess I have neither the moisture problem you or am as concerned about dust. I sweep out a couple times a month. It's a shop, not a show room. Oh, well. Carry on.

    In my case, because I don't want lacquer or other finishes on my tablesaw, router table, or Incra fence setup. Also keeps things like chainsaw oil and other crud off the tablesaw when I'm using it as a bench.
