New VFD should be here today. Hopefully this one will last longer than three months. 

In other news, found this sweet bandsaw on marketplace and I am thinking about upgrading.

Is Fred one of those YouTube woodworkers I keep hearing about.  The light switch seems so much easier than turning on my bandsaw.  Would be nice to be able to cut wheels to fit any bandsaw blade I find while dumpster diving around Chicago.

Managed to make the clamps for the CNC, but have not figured out how to make the spoilboard. Having a 16x36 table with only a 13x25 cutting area makes shrinking the Tools Today spoilboard to work and actually line up kind of difficult.

Finished the new drill station, which meant I get to trash one of my earliest builds, back when I just got the Track Saw and had nothing else. 
Just need to add some kind of finish, cut out a power cable hole or two and put a cleat on it.

The middle one shines 1800 meters, the big one does a flood of 12k Lumens and the little one is too cute not to buy. Obviously.

Do any of the chainsaw blade sharpening jigs work at all, or just keep buying new chains whenever you happen to find a bullet lodged in a tree 🤦‍♂️

I pay other people with their own chain saws to deal with all that shit.

Short answer: Yes.

But as Jeff wisely suggests, that's something that I would gladly pay to have done. There must be a number of good sharpeners in your area. Ask the butcher at your local grocers. He'll have a good name. Or ask the guys at Woodcraft.

Wait, isn't Tobe Hooper in your area?  Surely he'll know who to call!

Working on party favors for a little headphone/craft beer nerd get together this weekend. 

Took forever to cut the 3D rendering of the logo but all done and used the new keyhole bit to cut keyholes for mounting on the back. 

Putting sealer on tonight so I can finish with boat varnish tomorrow. 

Then just add the bottle openers and done.
