    Miter station build

    No no, I paid for the plans and they came in last week? Haven’t pooped through them yet but they were having a sale so I said why not? I have not seen the video workshop for the cabinet, is that on the site?

    Miter station build

    This is an older photo of my current set up. The only reason I attached it is because it’s on the wodest wall I still have available. I commonly have up to 10’+ hanging on the left side of my saw on the support. I too am going to be building an entire miter saw, storage location with room for my mortiser. The thing is I need a lot of room for longer pieces and have worked hard to keep that wall behind my saw clear... Also, being of similar mind, I went to architectural and mechanical drafting school back when autocad was being introduced....yeah....87-89. Your drawing skills are 🤟 I run all Apple and cannot use Sketchup and don’t know what Fusion is. Cannot wait to see the finished product dude and I just received my plans for the tool cabinet from Finewoodworking. I did not realize they were free (digital) to members of the library. Dohhh!

    Do not forget your insurance bro. You might be able to claim it on your auto policy.

    What tools did you buy today?

    Milwaukee Surge, 2.0 amp battery, a Large Dewalt ToughSystem box, an Easy Wood Large detailing tool for my lathe, a 12x20 piece of granite for my sharpening station and a pizza cutter kit to turn. I’ll throw some pics on later 🤪 Also all of the new1/2” Router bits from Peachtree came in but I haven’t even opened the box yet. My Wife bought me a two person hammock for Daddy Day. She’s awesome. My Son got me an awesome “Dadman” t shirt and a neat book to read him. He loved it.

    Time Off?

    Dude. Ain’t that the truth? I just came in from the pool, played a game and am now grilling. I want to ply some more. That game is addictive.

    Down and dirty router table

    Like it a lot plus great table support. What are you using to hold the feather boards in, are there a few slots in place?

    Time Off?

    Hang out with my Wife and Son, work in the shop, yard work, hike, play bf4, work on the house, ATV. I’m kind of a homebody but I love time with my family. We are starting to take my Son out a lot so we are going all over the place. Today will be a shop day for the morning though.

    DCS391 skill saw dies super fast

    Beats me dude, I don’t bother registering tools unless they say Festool on them. Most of them use the date stamp. Exception is Ridgid. Never buy from anyone but Home Depot, ALWAYS register.

    Same with Dewalt. I purchased a flexvolt tool and battery for eBay. The tool worked great but the battery failed. Dewalt graciously took in the battery and gave me a new one because it was date stamped and that is how they determine how old the battery or tool is

    What I am saying is if you buy off any retailer, a larger brand tool, those tools are date stamped. For instance if you purchase a Milwaukee tool and it is not working for some reason, Milwaukee will generally take the tool in for repair or replacement because they go off of the serial number. Dewalt is much the same. If it is a recon tool it comes with a different warranty and the tool serial number is listed as a recon.

    Normally the larger companies go date stamped on batteries and tools by sn which lets them know how long warranty is for. Recon is different.
