They've realized that I'm done with purchases, so they can't make it up in volume anymore!

Of course, I'm still likely to get a dovetail jig and another router this weekend.

After that though, I'm quitting cold turkey. Yessiree! I'm done!

Hey... anyone up for a "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" photo-frenzy of our workshops?

If by "workshop" you mean a garage and minibarn full of tools that are endlessly moved around as needed (or as they get in the way of something else,) then no, I don't think anyone really wants to see that.

I will send a pic of my friends workshop. He is an incredibly gifted wood worker (hobbyist) and just built a stand-alone garage. Turns out, the front door was too small for the wife's car (strange how that happened) so he turn it into the best wood shop I have seen outside a professional shop. 12x6 cherry workbench, hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, air and 110/240 at every location, and lots of room to move around from workstation to workstation.

Mine, half a garage with a "layered" approach to organization.

Loc: It's all about the location.
I too, am utilizing the layered approach, both in the garage where most of my metalworking tools are "neatly" piled around the perimeter on benches, and in my basement where the bulk of my woodworking tools(so far) are precisely placed in various places such as under the stairways, beside the furnace ect...

When I started my home reno's, my backyard, driveway, kitchen, family room ect became my workshop depending on the job I was working on. Eventually I'd really like to build a dedicated woodshop...and metalshop...and Home Theatre...and....

I think Joyce and I are going to refinance what's left on our mortgage to take advantage of the lower rates. We've met with someone already and it looks like we can have the same monthly payment, but pay the loan off earlier and get a big bag of money besides. We'll use that towards renovations in the kitchen, bath, plumbing, electrical and asbestos removal (Murph will be so proud of me!) \:\)

We've got an 8x10 dirt-floored, walled-off root cellar in a corner of our basement that we've never made use of. As things are getting a bit tighter down there in the workshop, I think I'm going to clean it up, put in a cement floor and a dedicated 20 amp circuit. Then I can put the dust collector and compressor in there making the shop quieter and giving me more elbow room.

I have a Jet 1.5HP dust collector... the package with the 1-micron filter and remote control:



I've loved the remote; I just throw it in a pocket and turn the DC on from across the room when ready to work at each machine. I'm realizing it might be a problem for this application, though, as the Remote /Timer control unit has no "bypass". So, if I put the unit in a separate room where the remote and sensor can't see each other, I can't turn it on/off. Even a switch outside the room won't do any good, as I'll supply power to the unit, but not "trigger it on".

So, though I've never felt the need to do it in my HT, I might actually be looking for an infrared repeater for my workshop!!??!!

Has anyone here ever converted a dust collector to RF so they could use an MX-850 or a Harmony Remote in their shop??

It's not super quality compared to more expensive solutions but for 50 bucks, you'd get an automated solution for your dust collector , two remotes (one credid card sized for your pocket) and a lamp module to turn on the operating room style lights when you need to sticth a finger back on after a table saw accident.

X10 Starter Kit.

Later you could add more modules for turning on your shop stereo, the shop coffee maker and annoy your wife by playing with the lights in her parts of the house.

Bear with me...I'm feeling less-than-bright today as if someone dimmed me remotely with an X10!

I don't see how this unit will work, as simply switching power to the DC will NOT turn it on. Plugging the DC in does not power it up, as there's no "hard" power button to leave in the "on" position. The X10 site isn't giving me info on how it works, just why it's so cool to have it.

I'm thinking I really need something more of an infrared repeater that I can hang (or fasten) in front of the DCs sensor, and be wired to a receiver outside of the room where my existing remote can point.

Am I making sense or do I need a nap? Zzzzzzzzzzz.........

I just went to Jettools.com to see if there was some tech support. While there, I decided to check on my exact unit and it seems like all the models with remote control now use RF!!

I guess I'm not the only one to run into some issues!
