It's still a bit cold but now that the shop looks like a tornado ripped through it, it's time to get serious about cleaning and arranging. Some tool cabinets (sanding station and router table) need to be built to hold all the bits, sandpaper, spare routers, sanders, etc... One area that needed serious work is dust collection. Dust was getting EVERYWHERE!! I've had a dust filter on my Amazon wish list for a long time. Sold a guitar and went to buy it. An ad popped up for a $50. gift certificate if I signed up for the Amazon Credit card. So I bought me a WEN dust filter. This looks to be the same as the Grizzly... This is an awesome filter. Way less dust floating in the air when it's running. Has a two stage filter system... One big issue was the shop was very dark. Our warehouse just upgraded to LED's so I got a couple of T5 fixtures. The price was right! FREE!! Lighting before new lights... Lighting with new lights.. Mike (MpacT) has been sharing some cool videos, while digging down a rabbit hole, I stumbled upon one with a frey press. Harbor Freight was having a sale (what else is new?) but the 1/2 ton arbor press was selling for $19.99! With the 20% off coupon total cost was $16.98!! A few years ago the same press was nearly $40.!! So it was off to modify the press for frets! Yup, drill a couple of holes... My nice new Irwin Cobalt bit... it cut through really nice. If you look inside the bore, you will see a small ridge.. it didn't line back up perfectly after checking the depth. Only wanted 1 inch deep. Yes it's not perfectly centered... my skills with metal are very limited... so I'm really happy with this. Then drilled a hole for the set screw... Then tapped it 1/4 - 20.... Need to get a few more bits of hardware from HD... Anyone set up a cool return mechanism for these?? I have a few ideas but would like to hear how you did it. While I was messing around, it seemed like a good idea to do some guitar work. So I cut some poplar and alder, jointed them and glued up three blanks. Here are the two poplar ones... There will be more to come on the workshop updates!!!
