Cleaning the Iron

Leave a comment

It certainly doesn’t look like much in the photo, but the table saw is considerably cleaner now than just a few minutes earlier. It probably took close to an hour to get the table saw, jointer and planer clean. I don’t know that it will help me cut any straighter or work any safer or faster, but it was worth it for the peace of mind alone. I followed up the cleaning exercise with dimensioning some legs from a piece of 8/4 walnut. No pictures of the table legs included in this post (not too exciting to look at – and this is coming from the guy that posted a picture of sawdust in a Dixie cup a few weeks ago). Lots of shop work for the coming weekend. Hopefully the clean cast iron will make all of the difference.
