    Okay, what's the next buy?!

    For sanding I still use the pc 332 and 333. Routers pc or bosch. Not the newer ones. Even on jigsaws I use older bosch. All the newer tools look like they brake too easy Pawn shops and ebay.

    Advice on pricing for a client...

    Someone told me they couldn't believe the price of kitchen cabinets. I told them I couldn't believe people spend so much on a car knowing it will lose value daily....when I was 20 I bought my first house. All my friends had nice cars but rented. I'll take the nice how and crappy car...

    Advice on pricing for a client...

    I use to reface a lot of cabinets in the day. On the phone I could pretty much give them a price. how many doors and drawers all I needed to know for the main price. Some call back some don't. I was busy..... When I priced out cabinets I give the base price and tell them the bare bottom on getting cabinets....if they expected more they will upgrade....

    Not much on lathes

    I think the guy is looking into turning bowls and needs to look into better options for bowls.. buying parts isn't a problem if they can be found. This is what I worry about. I'm still trying to find the guard for a 12" delta ras. Been looking for awhile. Hard to find...thx

    Table Saw! Powermatic vs. SawStop vs. your favorite!

    I'm a Delta guy but their all good. Good saw bad blade, bad saw good blade. I don't buy Forrest but there are many good blades on the market. I never buy thin kerf except for the miter saw...

    Looking for my first router need advice

    Personally I would go with the bosch pk or the 693pk. I've got a couple PC 895's at work and not really thrilled with them....

    Looking to buy a first table saw with tax money

    A lot of people spend a lot and a lot of people spend too little. It's easy to get caught up in bigger and higher priced tools. Trying to figure out how much you intend to get involved In woodworking is a tough one. I would start smaller and work up. Too many smaller tools to buy along the way.
