    Well....No thanks to the turners here........

    I finally got the interior of my shop primed and the first finish coat on the ceiling and walls!

    And YES Nancy.....the PM3520B and the MM-16 haven't seen daylight yet or even the 1/2 of the fluorescent lighting I've got installed.

    Tomorrow I start the 2nd finish coat.

    I won't say what brand of paint I'm using but I won't use it again. I used this company's specified primer and then the acrylic enamel exterior satin. The wallboard on the ceiling covered fine with 1 coat of primer and 1 finish coat but the plywood on the walls are going to take at least a 2nd finish coat and even then I"m not convinced there won't be some bleeding from the plywood.

    You're welcome?



    Not!!

    Oh...by the way....You weren't pushed.

    You looked over the edge and asked, "How Deep it it?" .....We said, "Bottomless". Then we handed you an anchor, and you JUMPED!

    What's next, the curtains don't match your new mustard machine?

    Hope you picked some nice colors like cherry burl or walnut crotch

    Ken---Hope the next coat will suffice for you. Bet you are eager to get those boxes open.

    Bernie just looking down shaking his head.


    Ken, Ken, Ken you have been saying almost done for 2 months now.

    Glad to see you are almost there.

    Never put off until tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.

    I won't say another word about the machines and the crates, Ken. I'll just wait for the pictures.

    Ken - I am in awe of your self-control! If it had been me - I would have had that lathe up and running the day I got it and just thrown a tarp over it when it came time to paint!

    Hope all runs smoothly for you and you get the chance to set your new equipment up soon! Looking forward to the pictures!

    Problem is...Ken knows that if he uncrated that beast....he'd NEVER paint!
