Weekend doings

2009-12-07 18:53:54.24004+00 by Dan Lyke 2 comments

Friday night we were out and about and ended up getting a tree, which was way too large for where we wanted to put it, so we started cropping bits off of if, and then it was just a touch too small. But it kind of worked.

However, this brought up the train issue again. We've been talking about a fold-down loop, but I've got all sorts of engineering questions on how to make that work in the way we want it to, so we just got a sheet of plywood to build in to a prototype. But to get to that I had to get Charlene's organizer out of the shop, which is pretty close, and to do some reshuffling of how things are stored so that I can work on larger pieces during the rainy season. This is the roll-around clamp rack I came up with. Roll-around since I do most of my glue-ups in the back yard, so a way to get the whole stash there seemed important.

With a recent garage sale score I may actually have enough clamps now. That picture isn't fully loaded. At least until I build the new shop.

With all the clamps on it, that sucker is heavy, though. I need a handle on the non-wheel end, and will probably end up putting different wheels on it at some point.

There ain't no such damn thing as owning too many clamps, excellent cart/concept
