@ Jayl and Avmansala.

Oo. The "quality of life" in my workshop improved because of the lighting. Saka sa gabi ako active kaya kelangan ko. Hindi ko na kailangan ng task lighting. Sa dating workshop ko, twisted CFL light bulb ang gamit ko, palpak pala.

There are t5 lights that retrofit to old T8 holders and that's not the one to buy. Yung may flourescent tube and holder at connector, 28 watts (longest one) tapos cool daylight. "Philips T5 essential batten." I know Wilcon carries it too.

I'm happy with the flourescent t5s while Balarila is happy with the spendier LEDs too.

Nice to see you posting again Jayl. JayL and Av, post your lighting din pag natapos; strategy on the spacing, etc.

I have three T5s in my shop. But since the ceiling is high, my workpiece isn't well illuminated. Instead of adding more lights, I just use this:

Originally bought it for biking at night. Then I discovered its great for the shop, too!

Whenever i watch matthias wandell's videos, he keeps mentioning how he got a piece of wood or other materials from the trash.

Now i'm proud of my drill press table. Got this from a condo's trash area recently. As it's free, I have no qualms drilling into it. (I just unscrewed the folding legs of this once small table.) No regrets bolting this mdf to the DP table. Love the large real estate.

FWIW, my lumber rack that crashed down. The longer bolts held while the shorter ones got pulled out of the concrete.

Nice. Looks like you'll be spelunking while wood/metalworking.

My lamps are actually hung from the ceiling to maximize illumination.
I'd rather add life to my years than years to my life.

I suggest that you should use DYNA bolt for your rack. :)

^Thanks for the recommendation. I had to look up what it was. Basically i buy what is available at handyman and ace; occasionally at wilcon. Will find those.

What i do know is that i like hex head bolts/nut because i can use my ratchet. +, -, even pozidrive heads cam-out on me when driving them down.

pangit ang dyna bolt pag ampaw at palitada lang ang wall....better are lag bolts with expansion bolts..

id recommend 10mm dyna bolts instead of the smaller ones...smaller ones have shorter footprint that made them useless for ampaw concrete wall!!!

been there done that..LOL
I think i was a woodworker in my previous life...and the life previous to that.

^Thanks for the input guys on what i thought was a small sidenote. Pansin ko nga dun sa nahila, sa palitada nakabaon at konti nalang sa hollow block. Sa mahabang lag bolt hindi naman nahila pero toks(?) lang gamit ko, hindi yung expansion casing(?) which should be the right way.

I prefer lag bolts/shields for heavy duty stuff. Dynabolts are not forgiving, need to drill the right size hole, not much leeway.
Your cutting tools is only as good as your sharpening system.
