It’s in perfect condition with just one small spot of rust on the column. This is replacing a Ryobi benchtop model that I’ve never been h...

Intro - 3 replies

Hello Fellow Woodworkers! Posting to introduce myself. I’m Chuck from Edmond, Oklahoma. We now have more earthquakes in Oklahoma than in California!! I’ve been slowly building up my tool inventory and my skills. I have to fight to get time to “play” with my tools in my 1-car-garage work “area”. Mostly on...
