We Get by with a Little Help from Our Friends

Jim Frazier came by to help us get some of the equipment up and running in the shop. He’s the kind of guy that knows soooo much about this equipment. He had one piece of machinery that had been left outside for the better part of a decade – he broke it down, threw an old Navy surplus motor on it and rebuilt it.

We are deeply appreciative to him. Here are a few shots of Jim at the Meber bandsaw. It’s an Italian machine we bought from a cabinet-maker who was closing up shop. It takes a minute to come up to speed, but once it gets its momentum up, it is a hoss of a machine. And much like a train, it takes a looooong time to wind down.
