Delta Bandsaw

This past week the motor went out on my 14" bandsaw. I started with a few quick phone calls to only be passed on to Black-n-decker then porter cable only for all them to point the finger back at each other for who could help me track down a new one. Once this did not lead to anything useful I also attempted to call Woodworkers depot where I purchased my saw. Lets just say they gave me the same useless phone numbers I had called. Even if they could have landed me a part I was told the motor would have been over $600.

This is when I turned to a few small businesses here in Appleton. I was so happy with the responses I received from many of the small companies and how they referred me to similar small businesses who could help. I finally found my motor at Electric Motor Supply in Kaukanua.

Rainy lake house boat

We vacation this past summer in International Falls, MN.  While in International falls we enjoys 7 wonderful days on a houseboat on Rainy Lake.  We were outfitted from Rainy Lake Houseboats and the service was nothing short of exceptional.

Entertainment Center: Speaker Fabric Installation

Also completed tonight were the finishing touches on the entertainment center.  I completed the installation of all the door hinges and speaker fabric.  The speaker fabric went in like a dream using the window spline and the 1/8' dado to accept it.  It is getting late but I did manage to post a few more pictures of the detailed steps on the entertainment center page.

Today I updated the page on my deck project for a few friends who are going to attempt a project of their own.  Enjoy the pictures and let me know what questions you have.
