    Gooday people,
    Just starting off scrolling. Making solid toys for children is my aim. Have made a few. A group of around 30 blokes are in the process of starting a Mens Shed here in Bordertown. Shed will be 30 feet by 80 feet - with plenty of room to double that if required. No woodworking clubs anywhere near and travelling is the main problem. Hooray for the internet.
    Will no doubt be asking lots of questions later when I get down to it.
    Have one now. Is JET a good drum sander - think the model is 16-32 ??? Suggested price ??
    Stationary.

    Welcome to the group! Lots of good people here to answer questions and give helpful advice.

    I don't know squat about the Jet drum sander, but I'm sure someone will jump in and give an opinion.

        How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

        I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.

        If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

        Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
