Setting up tools for a new project

I do have an entertainment center plan, as part of the basement. I will be converting the understairs closet into the electronics room. Moving everything to a hidden spot directly behind the wall mounted TV and flush mounted speakers. But, we tabletop so much more than video game now, that the gaming table will be used almost weekly, for 3-6 hours each time.

If the table doesn't load, refresh the page. Every so often the BoardGameGeek.com API fails to pass, and nothing loads.
I'm coming to your house when the zombie apocalypse breaks out!!! I can only assume you have a portable generator as well.

I think I have that table saw... (well, the small one in front...)

Drill Press and Lathe are next round...

I want to have similar experiences with my son that I had with my dad, too. Son just turned 11, so, time for him to learn some skills.

Realized my garage is wired with a 15AMP circuit (DAMNIT!!!!!) and the radial arm saw and the deep freeze trip it. And, my breaker box is in the furthest possible point in the house, in the basement, in the finished portion of the basement. So, next month I get to figure that cluster out. Thankfully, my bathroom is right off the garage, with a 20AMP circuit, and a cat door between the house and garage, so, I will be able to make do. Started the rehab on the Band Saw today, too.
New tools acquired so far:

Craftsman Router Table - Just a very basic router table, but makes edges easier, and under $70:

Ryobi 6-gallon pancake compressor with 3 nailers (after Christmas, it was $150 for the kit!):

Ryobi router - Again, pretty simple and basic, but, good for the projects I have lined up:

Ryobi belt sander - Still in the basic/starter level, but, will make these next projects easier:

Most of these will get upgrades purchased in the next 4 years, but, I needed to keep these under $500, and, the used cost on them does not save much (like $5-$10 per item), so, go new, and have some warranty...
I try to familiarize myself with tools working at HD but I can work freight a lot better. I have an unfinished project using a router to carve out a design with shelves. its Been unfinished since grade 10 Lol
Had absolutely no workspace, so, first project is done. Made a 51"x26" worktable that is the same height as my radial arm saw surface. Put two electrical outlets on the backside, one in each corner, controlled by a switch in the front. 25' 15# cord plugs in to power it, so, enough for a 20Amp circuit. The entire work surface is 3 pieces of MDF, glued and clamped overnight to bond, and then drops in. No screws/nails keeping it in place, so, when worn out, it lifts off and is easily replaced.




Now, I can start the next project...
Quick question here guys. I was tightening a shower head and the threads for the pipe broke off of it.
can the pipe be re threaded or do I need to replace the pipe?

Yes I understand this thread is for woodworking. Just never know who knows this stuff.
Thanks.
