Still not sure about the design, but it’s been a fun project to experiment with both wood and copper veneer.  All that is left is hinge installation and I can get these off my bench.

Decided to just service my saws twin while I was at it. Wore out a bar oiler gear after 36 years. Crazy

that's what happens when you won't pay the price of a quality product

Yep. Warranty didn't cover it after 36. Laugh

Well....seems the chinese can't make replacement oiler gears the correct size for my saws.
This new gear lasted a couple of days then stripped. Took it out and it measures .060 under size OD compared to the original gear.
So far I haven't found a new OEM gear that is manufactured in the states. Several used ones
but......

Been using my twin backup saw.

I'm not building but I'm making great progress getting my shop finished. Two walls done now. Insulation, drywall, primer, semi-gloss white. I'm amazed at how much brighter the work space is already!

Empty space over the breaker box allows access to add external power circuits as I realize I missed a couple before putting the drywall up.

For the coming weeks, the next two walls are my work bench.

Lookin good Brad. Now you can get your tool calender's/banners hung up. Smile

My work bench is still my shop walls. Insulation and drywall are creeping around the room. Hoping to finish this wall by the time the Thanksgiving weekend is over.

And speaking of work benches, I'm designing a Roubo built wholly from BB ply.

Why?

Quick and inexpensive when compared to solid wood. It won't be my last, I know. I got the inspiration for BB from Paul Sellers on YT.
