So one of our users, “works4me,” is building a new garage featuring smart and modern architecture. It’s turning out to be a gorgeous work space in large part due to all of the preparation and thought that went into the the design. I mean, homeboy even went to the trouble of generating the entire space using 3D mapping software.
So my buddies at Baileigh are having a free training session at their shop in Wisconsin. Essentially, they have all sorts of experts flying in to train folks on the best usage of their power hammers, metal shaping tools, bead rollers, etc… All for free. Baileigh has done a bunch for us in the past and they are great folks, so I thought a mention was in order. If you are in the area and want some schooling, drop by on January 12. You can read about all of the details on this thread.

A few months ago, I posted about an online find – the RoboReel. Frankly, my initial impression was not all that positive. It seemed to me that $300 was a bit spendy for what looks like an all plastic cord reel worthy of being called a “power tool.” I just didn’t see the value there… or the need.
Fast forward a couple of months and my phone rings. On the other end, is the fella responsible for RoboReel. To put it bluntly, he’s pissed. He didn’t like the responses he read on the forum and wanted to hand over a RoboReel to prove how wrong we all were. I stuck my tail between my legs and agreed… and the next thing I knew, I was looking at a RoboReel mounted proudly on my shop ceiling.
