Interesting that this topic would come up. I just put this page together for friends and family so they could keep up with my builds.
On The Bench Now
On my work bench... Well, after years of struggling with 1 20-amp circuit where I use my tools, today my son-in-law and I installed a new Square-D sub-panel with 2 240V and 2 120V 20-amp dedicated circuits for all of my tools - plus I have 7 free spots in the box!
I tested it with my 2hp HF dust collector and it did not trip any breakers! Man was digging around in an electrical box all day scary, but my workbench just got a lot better!
A Counter Pressure Bottle Filler adapted to fill any bottle from my kegs. Just needs a quick poly finish to make it beer (spraying everywhere) proof.
I salute your superb taste in liquid refreshment of the monastery kind, Nick.
A home entertainment computer, my 400 HP supercharged Chevette, my late 70's BA speakers, and this:
That looks real nice. I'd like to see more of than project please.
That's sweet Mojo!
I share my bench with the garage lighting and outlets as well as the front porch outlet. One of them is a GFI which is a hair trigger. I really need to add on.
This guy is getting the finishing touches
Currently I have a bunch of car parts on it from an engine rebuild but I don't have the money to complete it so they will be moved outside under a tarp and the bench cleaned up from the motor oil so I can get back to guitars.
An acoustic project. It is a 1960's/early 70's Aria same as my first guitar. Getting a refret, braces glued, new bridge, refinish on the top, new tuners, etc.
How did you cut the vinyl?
Musickraft neck and body, SD Quarter Pound's, Schaller tuners.
I feel really pedestrian after viewing your photos! On my bench at the moment is a 2x4
sheet of 3/4" MDF,on which are drawn 3 Tele body templates and 3 neck templates,waiting
to be cut-can you all tell that I am a beginner?
Have a Good Day!
My bench is clear at the moment, its too cold and wet here to start another build. Roll on springtime ( when it'll be warm and wet)
Suppose I'll have to start playing again.
I just did a fret level & crown on one of my strats. If it warms up enough, I'll paint a body I've got in the garage.
Yes - I did the same for years and got pretty frustrated. I am very thankful that my son-in-law is an electrician and was willing to take a day to work with me on that. I would have never tried adding a sub-panel myself.
I learned the other day that there are a lot of options for adding power. Most of the time adding a breaker, a dual-breaker or a double-breaker (for 240v) is all that's needed and that stuff is pretty easy/safe to do if one is OK with changing a breaker. -My original box was completely full though - so I had to bite the bullet.
Now I can't wait for the next project.
I'm comfortable with everything on the box side. I built and used 220V distro units for live production power for 10 years. But when I tied those in, it was into a disconnect that was easy to power down. I wouldn't take a chance with the mains coming into my house for a sub panel. I do have a couple of empty 15 amp breaker slots but I just haven't taken the time to add the circuits. Might be a good winter project.
Got a little body work done today. Though I was getting tired and sloppy and it shows where the router just tipped a little on the outer edge. No big deal though since it's inside the chamber and will fill easily.
