    Feel free to jump in with what you do in your garage, shop, at work, or wherever. Would love to see some things that others come up with :thumbsup:

    I work full time in a machine shop, my wife and I own a country convenience store and we like to hunt and fish. I enjoy making things and luckily my boss man doesn't mind if I make things at work on the milling machine, lathe, whatever!

    Here's what's happening today. A customer needs 5" X 2" angle iron 3/8" thick. We can't get it, all we can get is 5" X 3" so I'm cutting an inch off of one leg. This saw cuts it like plywood. I made a guide and bolted to the bottom and it's game on. Have to cut 80' total.

    Here’s the deer blind I moved today, hauled a tractor over to unload it then loaded it with another. It’s a little top heavy but got it into position. I made it years ago from old pallets and it was cold. Been working on redoing it off and on for a month or two. It was a little more than the Toyota wanted I believe. It was hot today too :D
