Re: Old School wood shop (my second thread here)

I think the old boards are cool looking. Going to pull them off and insulate, floor the attic and maybe add some more joists for support but keep the boards to clean up and rehang.

Re: PIXI LED panel lights

I got the commercial 2x2's in 2700k and they were TOO yellow. Ordered 4k and will be returning these. They are SOOOO thin! Needle nose pliers for scale.

Re: HF Toolboxes Workbench - Phase 3

Have to admit, a lazy susan for common hand power tools sounds amazing. drills, circular, reciprocating saw, etc Would need to be pretty heavy duty hardware for the weight of those.

Re: Another compressor piping question

Any reason not to go iron pipe?
Where is best place to buy air line supplies?
What air line supplies do I need?
Should I get a separate 120v circuit for it, or share an existing garage circuit?

Age is irrelevant, the dream garage is forever unobtainable and always just out of reach.
