No rest for the weary

Well it seems as life has decided to not make it easy on this 72 year old.   I shall endeavor to keep trying.   I presume that whining on your own blog is not acceptable.  But I am beginning to have no idea why I am here.  Just that gut nagging to keep trying  At least we know this is one blog that wont go down in history :)

One more thing.   I have a Shopsmith in the bedroom shop.  great machine when set up right.  One thing you can't do is use a zero clearance insert and adjust the blade by regular means.  Had a an old 1993 American woodworker with this fence in it. Made some modifications and its just turns out to be a great thing.  Way more handy than I even thought in the beginning.   Going to  make some for my router tables.

Reckon its been a while again so I will put this on here for those who are frugal and want to use two liter bottles for prep storage.  I describe it in more detail here.  Not big time woodworking but useful
