Show Notes

Episode 57 - Izzy built an addition onto their shop, worked on his beast of a CNC thats 5x25 FEET LONG! Redesigning a new Dust Collection System for the Avid CNC. And working on a secret clamp storage project that he’s developing. Pete has been restoring several Stanley hand planes, and flattened the bottoms by lapping them a granite slab with a sandpaper. After flattening all the planes in his shop, on the last on which was a #7, he cracked the cast iron frog! Fail! But its still functional. Dan has been clearning space in preparation for his CNC. Trimming out the basement, and potentially doing more work for that same client by adding a vanity to the bill. Mike was flattening an elm slab and “found” some nails in the wood with his bit. Had a miter saw blowout that scared him a bit, and he got to meet some local metalworking makers for a project. 

Joke of the night:
“Do you know why they call a hand plane frog a frog? Because it keeps the blade from hopping around” -Izzy Swan 2021
