Today was supposed to be about making more beehive components. Made a hearty and tasty breakfast so I wouldn’t have to stop for lunch, planning instead to work through the day.
Went down into the shop. Set up the table saw to make the first series of cuts. Fired up the vacuum system, hit the switch on the saw.
The roar of the vacuum system did not get drowned out by the whirr of the saw because there wasn’t any whirr.
Since vacuum and saw get their power from the same place, it just had to be the switch on the saw.
Goosenargh (nonsensical word inserted to protect the tender eyes of the easily offended who may read this)
Off to Tractor Supply, closest place that might have outlets and boxes. They have outlets, no boxes.
Off to 84 Lumber. They have outlets AND boxes! Got a double box and 2 outlets and the appropriate cover.
Spent the rest of the morning removing old single outlet box, stretching wires so I had room to make connections without having to deal with too-short house wiring, and installing my shiny newly purchased double outlet box.
Left the 15 amp breaker for this circuit instead of upgrading it to a 20 amp in the circuit breaker box because I’m not sure what is downstream of the new double outlet and I don’t want the house wiring to do the toaster element thing when I’m not here.
Still, I made an inner cover, a telescoping cover, and primed the undersides of the 3 screened bottom board hive stands I designed.
I would normally make a run of the same item, but I am teaching myself to set the saw up to make different cuts so making different items means more time spent on setting it up.
