A Week In The Workshop 145+


Direct Video Link - https://youtu.be/RqvXBsHejoY


Hi everyone, and welcome to another week in the workshop!


There hasn’t been huge amount going on this week as it’s been too hot to spend much time here, and I was busy getting the cubes video out of the door.


There’s a few bits and pieces to discuss, though, a little more on the footstool project, and a fair bit on the new plus member platform.


One quick note on that front; there are a few keen beans who have signed up to the paid plans already; they’re not really in place yet, and won’t be until the end of the month where there’ll be discounted rates for existing members, so just chill for the moment, enjoy access for the rest of the month with my compliments, and I’ll fill you in on all the details when everything’s settled and ready to go, OK?

In this video I do make the draw for the MFT/1080 giveaway in this video; thanks so much for everyone who put their name down, but there’s only one MFT, so only one lucky winner; be sure to watch the vid to find out if it was you…


That’s it for now; I’ll post mid-week if there’s anything more on the footstool timber choice or any further progress on the next product, but until then, thank you so much for being here, stay cool and drink plenty!

Best, Peter

I have two pair of Mitutoyo Calipers Peter. The older pair are 150mm and 30 years old and still work beautifully. Plus the battery lasts for years compared to the cheap ones. The other pair are 200mm and two years old and just as good. Quality is worth the extra cost and reduced agravation.

Thanks Don! I think they're probably the most expensive measuring things I own! I probably won't get full benefit out of them., but at least I'll know that the results I'm getting are properly accurate, not just relatively accurate! Must admit I would like a bigger set, but they'd probably get used even less! 😂

Congratulations Simon! 🥳

I am not surprised that you got a sag. With all those grooves you have effectively gone from 18mm down to about 10mm thick 😀
