Saturday tidy up!
« on: May 09, 2015, 10:35 AM »
Had a tidy up today, it was in a right state!!! Amazing to see how space you have when you put things back! Few systainer and Kapex are in the van from a kitchen fit last week. Kapex lives under window near the Parfitt dust hub, in the near future this will go on purpose made bench.
My neighbour gave me some Unistrut a while ago and was desperate to make a timber rack for the wall, so that was my first job. Then i had a brief play the kreg foremen, awesome! Have a face frame wardrobe to build next week, so it will see plenty of use.
Hung (although badly) the rutlands two stage air filtration unit on the ceiling, jury is not out on this one yet.
Bought a new line for compressor, so I could ceiling mount the line then unhook when need for maximum flexibility.
Gave the shop a sweep and vacuum and called it a day. Just getting over man flu...
Of 1400 getting delivered Monday, first task is to cut in some bookcase strips for wardrobe as this is want the customer wants.
Waiting for the wife car to do a refuse tip run. Have a great weekend all.

I'll find out from my neighbour he uses it daily for hanging metal ducting and stuff. My uprights are 1230mm tall with two 14mm (hole) raw bolts in the wall top and bottom. The shelf prong is 600mm long and I hung off of it at the very end so would say it's plenty strong. I'll get back to you. Cuts really easy with hack saw.

Great idea. I will have to use that.
Do they make caps for the ends of those struts. I would probably whack my head on one of those things, or walk into to it absent mindedly

I'm sorry, I wouldn't know how to act in a shop that clean and that much room in it.

I'd have to dirty it up and fill up the empty space quick.
