    Spring tool chat

    What's on your spring tool to do list? I have to clean the rust off several tools stored in my unheated, detached garage. Once I get the rust off, I plan on using some Boeshield to prevent any more rust.
    I have to reassemble my table saw, and put a sacrifice strip of wood on the fence too.

    I need to hire a Home Depot parking lot attendant to dig a trench so I can run power to my garage
    at least for lites & a few plugs. My digging days are over with.
    I need to sort thru my garage & get rid of a bunch of crap too.

    What's on your tool to do list?

    continue on my workshop remodel -

    Metal/Mechanics/Greasy Area
    Need to build some hanging cabinets and a couple large lockable cabinets for paint/gas/etc. Make a new welding cart to put my stick and MIG welders on. Also need to make a cart for my oxy-propane torch setup. I bought a 100lb propane cylinder and its way to big to fit where the acetylene tank was on the old cart.

    Woodshop Area
    Stud out the back wall and insulate (just heavy gauge steel pole barn siding sucks in Michigan winters), install a couple windows and an external door for an emergency exit/ventilation on back wall, reconfigure my work benches & tool layout around said changes, maybe replace/install new lighting and a few extra plugs.

    Yard Work
    continue to tackle the overgrowth around my property left by the previous owner being lazy, build a couple raised beds for a small garden.

    Careful dude. You don't want your wife cleaning up for you. Remember my thread about my wife cleaning up my shop awhile back?
