« Part 56: finally warm enough to get something done... & #facepalm moments Part 57 of Tool thoughts series Part 58: Woohoo! I made 'what's new' on Wood Talk online! »

Spring is here finally and I’ve been doing a bit of shop cleaning. Naturally I’ve got some new plans in mind & what would new projects be without new tools?! Funny thing, I keep finding tools that are $69.

I don’t need this, but I would like to have the Ryobi one+ impact driver from the Borg… sure enough $69 (oddly enough, I searched for a refurbished unit, and found a couple for $89. um, no, don’t think so…)

I’m planning on doing some segmented turning this year, and I’d like to upgrade my miter gauge for the tablesaw. As nice as it would be to get an incra 1000, I’m aiming more at their v27. (whoops, this is only $64.99, but hey, what’s $5)

And lastly, I want to upgrade to a Robust J-shaped tool rest for my midi lathe, and that is… you guessed it $69.

of the three, I think the tool rest is coming home first, then the Incra and then possibly the Ryobi as that is a want, not a Need.
