    Will not run...and the bearings seem to be shot...to be replaced by the motor that came with the saw when new..

    That I had taken off during the overhaul last year...and kept it around as a spare...

    Need to draw a few curves on the lid...might just have the toys to do that..

    One coat of clear gloss varnish has dried. Chain has been installed to hold the lid open..

    Foam pad cut to fit inside the "tray". Label holder has been installed.
    Close the lid..

    Keep in mind, the lid is only 1/4" thick ( barely)...Front view..

    varnish didn't seem to "yellow" things any...
    July Project Post, end view.JPG
    Time to load this up, and put it to work...

    For scale...Top of Lid sits 8-7/8" above the bench...is 8" wide at the Finger Lift..and is 17-3/4" long. Still on the look out for a pair of handle for the ends....need a way to carry this, when it gets full..
    Thanks for looking in...( was supposed to be done before Aug. 1st....I was "delayed" )

    Handles have been bought, they need a little "adjustment" before I can attach them on the ends....otherwise, I'm calling this Project done ( top tray is already full...)

    Boring anyone? Handles needed a bit of work...Made to use bolts from the inside of a case/drawer....not an option for this one..Fake screws were ground off on the outside....then a new hole was drilled for the mounting screws ( amazing what a new, SHARP, drill bit can do..)....which left things coloured wrong...decided to paint the handles a gloss black...
    July Project handle...installed.JPG
    Once they were as dry as they will get...2 screws per handle to install...
    July Project handle, paint it black.JPG
    Going to need them..tool box is starting to fill up..tray is full ( unless I stack a few things..)
    July Project, full tray.JPG
    Drawers are also filling up....all sorts of small tools, bits....spare parts...Tool Box just might get a bit heavy.

    Thanks for looking in..
