  • A few new tools

    Went out this weekend and splurged, bought a General International 18" bandsaw, a general International oscilating spindle sander, and a General International drill press. Getting all the tools lined up all I need now is an 8" jointer, 20" single surface thickness planer, drum sander, and a new table saw. But before those things I will add another 1000sq. ft. onto my shop, its way to small.

      I'd like to have 1,000 sq ft to work in! If I put your new acquisitions in my shed I wouldn't be able to close the door - from the outside!

        Dude! When you splurge, you don't mess around!

        Congrats on the new shop and tools. Sounds like you will have a pretty nice set-up.

          You are a man after my own heart! I love new tools. What will you be making that requires the scale of tools that you ar getting? i.e. 20 inch planer. These are all big boy toys.
          And of course you will need to post some pictures of your projects. Please!

            Congratulations on the new toys. Very happy for you.
            As mentioned above, no room in my shop for those.

              The tools I am purchasing are for a woodwork shop that I am putting together. I work construction and I plan on retiring from my job in three or maybe four years. I will start building my new shop early next year. When I am done with my regular job I will then work at home building cabinets, furniture, etc. Right now I do not have a lot of time to start any real big projects, I am just way to busy with my job.

                Hi Tango. What model scroll saw do you have? I know the model I bought used is a 226-M. I can't find any information on it because it'd so old. Right now I'm trying to determine the H.P. of the motor used to run these scroll saws. Can you look on yours to see what H.P. voltage, and rpm the motor is?...

                He did therapy for 4 weeks then at home for another 2 to get his legs ready for the surgery. The therapist called today her first inhome appointment is Thursday. Hopefully the other knee will be within a few weeks. He has an amazing resolve so I expect him not to need the walker or cane in 2 weeks....

                I wish Bruce a speedy recovery. If his recovery is similar as that of a friend he will be up and around in no time at all. My friends is over weight and had both knees done 5 days apart. Physical therapy helpd alot.
