Poor Man's Hot Tub
 
I got the idea for this hot tub from this pic I found online.

I used a 300 Gallon Rubbermaid Stock Tank from
Tractor Supply. It's used for watering livestock and cost
about $100.
I bought a real Spa heater with electronic controller on
Ebay for about $250. It controls a $30 pump from
Harbor Freight.
I get bubbles from a portable bathtub spa from Walmart
($40).
I keep the heat in with an inflatable mattress( Ordered it
online for around $15) and some insulation from Lowes($20)
wrapped around the outside.
Add some pvc pipe, a wooden box to house it all, throw
in some chemicals and you get a pretty descent little spa
for less than $500.
It will keep the water around 102 degrees.

Mini Belt Sander


I found some cheap 3x21 belt sander belts, so I made this little sander to put them to use.
I took the motor off of an old drill press. It works as both a horizontal and vertical
machine. Works nice when I just want to knock the burrs off of something quick.

Portable Bandsaw Mount

This is a simple mount for my portable bandsaw to hold it vertically while the stock is
clamped in the vise. It allows one hand operation while keeping the blade in position.
I just clamp the stock in the vise, slide the pin into the hole and I'm ready to cut.
I bought the saw at Harbor Freight for about $69.

Router Table

I made this router table from an old clothes dresser. I split the top drawer to allow room for the
router and made two small side drawers to hold bits and such. I had to reinforce the dresser top
with some plywood. The router pops out the top to change tools and is mounted onto the
1/2 thick plastic base that keeps it flush with the table top. An adjustable fence finishes it off.
Cost me next to nothing and gives me plenty of storage for all the routing accessories.
