WoooooHoooooooooo….......... In the middle o building my smaller lumber rack, I had to stop to drive 360 miles to purchase this fine Performax 16×32 Drum Sander from a very good friend. I was so excited to get this, and I can’t wait to use it. Besides this, my buddy, (I call him my SinSay…lol), he about made me cry, cuz I came home with a few other unexpected tools/equipment, which consisted of, a Hitachi M12V that is mounted in a mobil table that he made (Woodsmith plan), and homemade inserts, AND, .........wait for it…................. a IPM JoinTech fence system… IPM is Incremental Positioning Machine. It has a very nice fence, that is micro-adjustable, equipped with in-and-out adjustable fences for different sized bits for the built-in dust collection, AND, oh wow, I’m beside myself….....AND, a brand new 16” Delta (Sheila, if yer readin this, you’ll be happy…lol), scrollsaw.. I am so, so thankful to the close friends that I have made over the years. They have become “my chosen, extended, family”. I luv em all, and they know who they are. I think I feel a bit o relief now, so, I’m gonna go have a few cold ones, .........I think a Guinness in me left, and, a Coors Light, in me right…........ Gosh, LIFE IS GR8 !! Now that I’m done rambling, check these pics out: and, thnx fer lettin me air to all o you gr8 folks on here. Be careful, ya’ll might be in the extended mix o soup. :)

You know, some days it’s very easy to go off people. ZZ, you are a swine, especially for showing your filthy loot.
Nahhhhh. You did well old son.

Wow, wow and WOW!! I just got done reading about your new lumber rack and the next post I saw was this. Did Christmas come early and I missed it? Holy moley! You already had a nice shop but with all these new toys – what are you going to make first? The Delta is a nice addition too. I can’t wait to see the cool stuff you come up with.

Congratulations on the multi-score, my friend! I am very happy for you!

Congratulations on your new drum sander Roger. Performax is known to be the best one out there. The scroll saw is also very good. I had one just like it, or at least it looks the same, which I gave to my son. It is a great machine and I’m sure you will be pleased with it.
