When you have a small shop, sometimes you just have to work outdoors. Unfortunately, in Canada, sometimes this can be a challenge. When I found myself needing to cut some stock for an automata closure. I dragged my saw out of the shed and set up outside. The good news it was a bright and sunny day. The bad news is that is was about -10 degrees celsius - the heat of the day! The sliders on the saw get a little stiff with the lubrication getting so cold, but ya gotta do what you gotta do.
Glove parka and toque on, a check few cuts, and back into the shed it goes, and me to a warm cup of coffee. You have to love woodworking on the winter.
Automata is a creative blend of my life interests , engineering, art and woodworking.
