    Default Nows the time to service the shop tools

    Just stripped down the bandsaw this morning...replaced a couple of bearings in the blade guides and greased all the sliding parts...This afternoon Ill start on the thickness sander and remove all the sawdust from inside the drum and fit a new sanding belt and re adjust the leveller settings....then a bit of maintenance on the lathe is needed...makes a change from making sawdust.

    If you can believe that moving images and sound, can fly through empty space across the universe and be seen and heard on a box in your living room ?.. then you can believe in anything.

    Just sharpened 32 chisels.
    Next project will be to improve dust extraction.

    Im impressed. Maybe it's time to break out the water stones and touch up the chisels and gouges.

    When I was working, I used to frequent garage sales and acquire neglected and forlorn-looking chisels. I promised them I'd restore their dignity when I retired.
    I'm retired.

    My nephew has a habit of using his chisels for scraping concrete and bricks and stuff like that. A few minutes on the linisher and and diamond stones followed by the leather strip restores the edge.

    I need to rebuild my bandsaw, no bearings and everything not essential is closed. Need to do work on my drum sander but I'll probably leave it till I build another one. Jointer needs work, table saw, bet sander...

    There was a master luthier in Paracho, Mexico who is reputed to have said he could build a guitar with only a luthier's knife. Now that's Lean Manufacturing.
    If you think 32 chisels is impressive, you should see my wood collection.
