Clear ChopShop Sawhood

Paul Akers designed a Clear ChopShop Sawhood made with plexiglass for his home shop. His chop saw sits in from of the window so he didn’t want to block the light, or see the saw from outside. This currently isn’t a FastCap product, but base on interest, it might be.

Lean Cart

Truman and Dalton add FastCap’s GPS Tape (http://ow.ly/YPum30aLusK) to indicate that this cart belongs in production. They also added handle markers so it is easy to figure out how best to move the cart. Stop the struggle!

Box Backer

Tyler creates a backer for the storage boxes so that they can easily be faced off. Stop the struggle!

Lean Stud Finder

Paul Akers uses FastCap’s 3rd Hand Magnetic Strip to help him find the studs in the wall. What a quick simple, Lean way to do this. For more information on FastCap’s 3rd Hand Magnetic Strip, visit our website.

You’re never too young for making shop improvements!

Allen Bonthuis sent us this video and said, “You and 2 second Lean are a great inspiration to me working in the agricultural field and trying to help my customers get started in Lean. You have also inspired me to take Lean into my own woodshop and there are some videos of that coming soon to YouTube and Facebook. What I wanted to share with you today though is my fun day in the shop with my grandson yesterday. He started asking questions about my new work table and why I was taking apart my old work bench and well you can see for yourself what happened…”
