    Nice build. Maybe try an eye bolt on either side of the compressor, then run a cam lock strap over it. Would make it easy to get it out if you need to. Or install little cups for the feet to sit in?

    The access panel was not missing. The center section of stile above it was missing. A table saw and my oscillating cutter helped make a clean repair.

    Had to order some new 4mm tubing for my hinge / line boring machine. The previous owner lacked any and all mechanical skills.

    I need to clean the green and black stuff that has accumulated mostly on the flat (horizontal) surfaces of my deck railings.
    Trying not to remove the finish, as its in pretty good shape.
    Any recommendations on a product or home brew, that wont strip the existing finish?

    I scored this Hegner Scroll saw for free yesterday. Built in 1997, the model is a Multimax 18 that works perfectly. The only thing missing was the variable control knob/shaft to control the RPMs however I can shove the back end of a 000 paint brush into the hole to change the speed.

    I got it. :) Just needed to a little more time reading online.

    1 cup TSP
    1 cup Bleach
    2 Gallons Water

    Upper section of handrail, i sprayed down the the railings with water, and scrubbed with a brush and this mix.
    The next day, I sprayed that mix on the remaining handrail, let it soak, and hit it with the pressure washer.
    Being careful not to get too close.
    About the same results of getting the black & green stuff off.
    Scrubbing may have took a little more finish with it.
    Will go over the whole handrailing with this:

    and all of the exposed framing with this:

    I used those two products originally two years ago, and other than it just being dirty, and the black & green crud, the finish still looks like it was just put on. The cleaning has removed some of the product, but overall i think it had been a good product.

    As far as the decking goes, its so nice to have installed composite decking, scrub it or pressure wash it, and its clean.
    No having to refinish. Yay!!
