A couple of more trips will make a huge difference now.
We are going to lose some time this afternoon. At some point I want to replace 2 small windows at floor level in our solar room. They are below the big windows and were like a lot of basement windows put there for ventilation since none of the big windows can be opened. The guys that did the stone on the house had a dumb attack and laid the window ledges flat and water got to running back and rotted the window frames. I am replacing them with glass block units that have a small opening vent in the center and will make provisions to stop the rain water from getting near them.
You can see the solar room in the background of this picture of the horse hang-out area across the road from the house (we have bonfires there at night a lot). I have a better solar room pic "somewhere" but can't find it now.
We got a batch of SS stuff moved yesterday and I have my 510 ready to move today. Once it is moved I can do woodworking again...
Of course I won't be able to find anything. Everything is still stacked around in boxes in no particular order.
I hope to get my dividing wall and a batch of cleated panels up this week and needed something to rip stuff with. Surprisingly I am still running on schedule but the Ridgid TS-3650 tablesaw and the Foley/Belsaw planer/molder may have to wait a week or so for me to get the new door cut. I could dismantle part of the tablesaw to fit it down the narrow stairs but I just don't want to. The planer/molder is just a lot heavier (and more top-heavy) than I think I want to move down those stairs. At the new door I will be able to lower them down with a tractor and loader. If I get in a pinch to use the planer I can always take the work to the tool. The tablesaw was a want, not a need. I love it but can do anything I need on an SS just fine.

I did not equip with Shopsmiths in spite of the setups but because of them.
