|Do not forget to take care of yourself while cleaning. What we are doing a lot here is sweeping fine dust off the floor and blowing a lot of it with the air hose. The heavy dust falls where it can be swept up but the fine stuff whisks into the air and finds its way into our lungs. Use a good dust mask. Those paper things are ok but I like a good one with cartridge filters.
|Also when the compressor is running and the dust collector going, hearing protectors are a good idea. Hearing loss is cumulative. I am paying too much for too many hours with a chain saw over my life time to add workshop damage too.
|The chop saw and the sander are back together and much cleaner. They need cabinets and rollers one of these days.
|The router table has been moved. This is built with wheels on the back that touch when the whole thing is tilted backwards. It is heavy and awkward, but it works.
|A table saw is great to have in any workshop. It is used less by woodturners than by most woodworkers but is still handy, I have mounted mine on a cabinet with locking casters although I seldom lock them. The overall weight keeps the thing pretty stable.
|To start, I removed the stuff at the sides of the bench and cleaned them off. The jigs and such were cleaned as I moved them.
