Shoes?,

You can't absolutely see it in my avatar, but why I chose this handle and what I show in the picture is that the soft soles of the shoes are absolutely full of chips stuck into the soft soles. And then I refinished the hardwood floors in the house and ....

I have not so far got the mats as I like to sweep the floor with a broom a lot. If I keep the dust and whatever swept up, then I can sweep up the chips after a session and save them for sale/recycling.

My leaving-the-shop ritual is: Sweep up Chips and make a nice small pile on the floor, Take stiff-bristle brush and get chips out of shoes onto floor, sweep into pile, use bench brush and dust pan to pick up pile for chip recycling or trash, depending on what I've been up to.

Then I have old doormats both inside and outside shop door which get vacuumed every so often.

Works for me at this point in time.

Here are a couple pictures of my new mill mat. The first pictures show the old set up. The larger thin mat was given to me by a friend many years ago; the a few years ago my brother gave me the super squishy one. While it was pretty comfy the swarf ended up destroying it.

I'm really happy with the new one, it is about the same height as the duck board in front of my lathe. The swarf sweeps and/or vacuums up easily.

The Stool is in!   My son put it together while I was at work...got to sit in it at the machines tonight for a spell..It's just a touch high for the Aciera,   Perfect for the Clausing Mill, and about perfect for the Southbend.   I think i'm good there.  I think I'd like to have the back further back..   So I'll put some spacers on that and adjust....

Progress!

Oh  and the quality of this stool is very good.   All welded steel frame painting a pleasant green with a natural Birch wood seat and back.  Decent hardware ect.

Worth what they asked for it I think....
