Setting up the new saw
Bought a horizontal band saw off a long time buddy. I’m excited to have a quieter and less messy option for cutting long metal stock.
This is my first ever liquid cooled saw. I wanted to do it right so I cleaned the tank inside and out very thoroughly. I then invested in some actual saw lubricant which has worked out really well so far. Here is what I got:
Making shelving for the mezzanine
I have an intricate plan developed for storage on the mezzanine above the bathroom. I want to be able to store long metal stock on it but also have shelving units with drawers so I can store my less frequently used tools.
The solution I ended up with was a short shelving unit that I could stick long stock in underneath then put filing cabinets on top of it so I had closed storage drawers. Being that I only want to do this once, I’m trying to do it right the first time and make it look good because it will probably be up there for the next 20+ years.

My poor man’s Ferrari (My 1985 MR2 lovingliny named ‘Rainbow’ by my daughter) was missing some lug nut covers. I couldn’t find them anywhere online so I took measurements from a factory one and made some myself.
Need some MR2 lug nut covers for yours? Check them out at our new store:

That’s all for now. Next time we work on finishing the bathroom and start on putting the ceiling panels up!
Now YOU, go outside and work on something!
