Table Saw Sled - Cut like a pro

We built a table saw sled. This makes for easy and square cutting. Also cut multiples in a stack or make jigs for complicated cuts.

See the new dust collection system in action too.

First Welding Project - Welding Cart

by Aaron

We got right into a first project with the recently donated Lincoln Wire Feed Welder. We took an existing stand, reconfigured some TV mounting rack with cut-off disks, and then welded it all together.

The welding cart will serve as a sturdy home for the welder and all it's peripherals.
