Looks cozy enough and quite adequate to me. What is the clear plastic
container on the bench next to a tool box containing some white substance?
Hope you don't have immediate plans to use the pickup!
It works ok. I have it set up so I have enough room on each side of my tablesaw
to cut full sheets of plywood. Also in the corner you can't see is a hallway
house which adds 8 feet that gives me over twelve feet on each side of the
thickness planer. The ten foot ceiling makes swinging lumber pretty easy in the
space. I have a lot of light up there as well for night use. Four 8' daylight
fluorescents and 6 incandescents in two ceiling fans.
It's Cryogenic perlite. It has the texture of sugar but is virtually weightless.
use it in my concrete as a sand substitute to reduce the weight of the crete as
I buy it in big 3 cu foot bags from Grace Industries. It's used by industry to
insulate tanks but virtually identical to the perlite used in making light weight
concrete for structures like parking garages. The cryogenic product is less
I prefer it.
Who are you talking to? And what are you talking about?
I know, I know.. He has been told many many times to reply to the
thread instead of starting a new one.
Some people are just born hard headed. Or too stupid to figure it out?
Computers and usenet are not second nature to all of us.
There are a lot of great woodworkers out there who's knowledge will be lost
because they don't use a computer. We should be encouraging EVERY woodworker to
in a post in any fashion they can so their knowledge can be saved for the future.
I read a recent article that said the AVERAGE age of those practicing
a hobby is well over 50. The hobby is DYING!
I recently gave a computer to a friend who is an absolute expert on Bonsai.
He probably knows more about how to Bonsai North American plants in colder
than anyone else but all that will be lost when he dies.
I'm hoping to get him up and running in a couple online Bonsai forums so he can
what he knows and where it will be recorded for posterity.
I make concrete slabs and pots for him to sell with his plants. He gifted me
bonsai at Christmas I could easily sell for $800.
Sure couldn't tell it around here. There seems to be more woodworking
schools, teachers, seminars, woodworking shows, stores, tools, books,
articles, magazines, and wood botiques catering specifically to the
woodworker, etc. than at any time in my memory.
I agree, aging baby boomers have a lot of money and short memories....:)
How many books do you have on the same topic?
I have about a dozen on bandsaws alone.
That's what's so great about working in Hypertufa and concrete. Very few books
are crap) and the tools are cheap.
A pair of gloves and a good rasp are all you need..<g>
Personally I think all the how-to books, TV shows, and help groups are hurting
personal ingenuity and creativeness.
Instead of looking for unique solutions most crafter's go running to the TV or
Internet for answers.
I try to avoid that and beat my own path as much as possible. :)
