    I enjoy working with hand tools and power tools. I enjoy the balance between the two. I build furniture as well as solid body guitars and basses.

    Miter Bench for the New Shop

    Thanks Gotta use that click bait man... Something like, "I bought some wood and followed the plans, what followed was completely unexpected!"

    Miter Bench for the New Shop

    Whoever designed this really did a great job! Glad to see an actual modular set-up to accommodate different shop sizes! Killer job getting these together so quickly!

    Screwdriver bit sets

    Not intending for this to be a Festool commercial, but , you really do get what you pay for. Most bits are cheaply made and many drivers have poor retention so a crappy bit wobbles in a crappy driver. Not a recipe for success. I know someone will scream due to the cost... but Since I've been using the Festool bits with their drill/driver, I no longer look at them as consumables. Used properly, they last. I bought the installers kit several years ago, and haven't replaced any of them yet. While we're on it, the Festool Centrotec system is just fantastic. While we're on that, their drill/drivers are great as well

    New jointer season? I think so.

    lol, yep Times are tough! A few emails and maybe a phone call to settle a 4K machine. You'll be fine man.

    Liz is awesome... She'll figure it out. When I bought mine it was 10% down, rest was a wire transfer. The check thing seems safer

    I had the 555 bandsaw for many years, lovely machine if you refrain from abusing it.

    I know I'm wasting my time on this... But, almost everything... The problem with woodworking is your needs are the same as a pro... At the end of the day you still need precise joinery, which comes with working with flat material. Please feel free to disagree and shout "elitist", but you can't change the basics. What is complicated to understand is how someone asks a question and gets honest feedback related to all aspects of that situation. Then decides to complain that the feedback they are receiving isn't in line with their own research. It is by far the most disheartening aspect of being a member of any forum.

    The fact you have to remove the fence to change from jointer to planer takes the Minimax out of contention.

    New jointer season? I think so.

    I was trying to play sort of devils advocate. I catch a lot of poop for saying people need a 12K jointer... even though I think they do I know I wouldn't be happy with the Hammer.. but I'm in a different position than most folks. So it's very hard for me to offer advice.

    If I had $900 to spend... I'd get a Grizzly 555 bandsaw and a Ridgid or Dewalt planer. Save for the jointer down the road. Buy S4S lumber for now. There are too many compromises to get all three in that budget.
