Bought an arbor saw , first project

#1

Post by florida_grown »

So the plan was to resell this until i got it home and found an unused NIB dado set...
Reclaimed some fence posts from 4 recently replaced panels since here in central florida lumber has jumped up in $$.
The flag was given to us about 9 months ago as a gift...So I put the NIB dado set to use and the flag is slid in via dado from the top.
Then I did an acrylic wash base in green, followed by heavy body brown and a tan both in acrylic.
Got a 300lb. Rated frame hanger bar just waiting to hear where the SO actually wants this permanently.

That's honking awesome! That dado set will come in handy.

And the price for lumber here in Florida has gotten out of hand! Went to get some 4x4's a couple weeks ago and about fainted.

Yeah, we don't normally buy much wood and rarely leave the Island (New Smyrna beach) so when I replaced 4 panels 2 weeks ago I saved the good wood for any projects. The prices are nuts here and I had no idea they went up.
What part of Fl. are you in?

About two hours north in Jacksonville. I get down that way now and again.

That’s a nice Rockwell/Delta table saw and a NIB dado set is a great score. Dado sets are not cheap for a nice one. That gun rack came out great! I completely agree with you, the cost of lumber is nuts! 7$ for a 2x4x8 Spruce.. I don’t even want to look at engineered lumber costs..

Thank you. I'm not an artist or much less a trim carpenter, I do "rough" carpentry. After I got it home for $50 and found the NIB dado set I was stoked. For now gonna keep this old rock/delta, the tilt washer is blown so I've got it currently blocked/lodged @ 0•

Very nice rack!

Now tell us about the guns... I'm thinking I'm seeing some Crossman there?

Nice collection of practical guns!

My Crossman pistols:

Just about everything modified or replaced from the original 2300S except receivers and barrels. Converted to bulk gas fill. Lots of fun!

Whoa those target grips look pretty sweet. Do you do any 10M?

I haven't shot 10m since high school. I used to do a fair amount of 5m indoor with those, but haven't used them for anything but pest control for the last decade or so. I got spooked by reports of lead poisoning in military and police shooting in poorly ventilated indoor ranges--which the ones I shot in definitely were.

My favorite competition target--why I built two of these--was a grid of drywall screws driven into a piece of cardboard. Challenge was to see who could punch the most screws through without a miss. I could often hit 20/20 at 5m. But then I saw what happened to the pellets! These crank out 500 fps (measured) and the pellets would pretty much vaporize, leaving a neat little bit in the head of the screw. I figured maybe I didn't need to be breathing that pellet dust anymore.

Made by a fellow, IIRC, down Texas way. Can't take much credit for them, aside from laying out the $$$. I figure I have nearly $1k in each gun. I was making some money back then.
