    Back burner project

    Post please...!

    It's been a string of little projects. Most significant was a new base for my little Craftsman saw. Kind of a silk purse from a sow's ear but I seem to do a lot of that. Much more stable than the stand it came with. Mike Davis may recognize those casters. Attempted dust collection and a safe...

    Jointer Damage

    I think I can see the nick in the blade. Hate that happened but glad you're ok. I've been making every possible shop mistake myself this week. Maybe we're getting 2020 out of the system.

    Anybody know what these are?

    Thanks, I'll be repurposing things I have laying around, so my wooden parts will most likely depend on what they are tying together. I do have a copy of an old Fine Woodworking publication on building shop machines. I'll refer to that to make sure I haven't overlooked some important feature.
