Location: Bradenton, Florida
Website: this one!

Wannabe Master craftsman, Sorting out my shop.

It consists of...
A nice assembly table I made.
A Sweet Granite top Steel City 5HP/240 Saw.
A 1.5 HP SC dust collector that needs to be plumbed into everything!
A 14" with a riser block (resaw now is about 13") Grizzly BS
A 12.5 Delta planer( For free.. was rusty as hell I rebuilt it and put in new blades)'
A PM 701 Mortiser
A Griz 8' Jointer with a sprial cutter
A junk Grolz #4 with a Hock blade (that is not bad, but not gossamer)
A LN Medium Shoulder plane
A LN LA Block plane
A LN 7 1/2 LA Jointer plane (help I am getting addicted!!!!)
(To donate a hand tool (like a LN/Veritas or Marcau plane or just a decent worker!) email me!
and some decent chisels, LN Dove tail saw and assorted junk.

At a recent local wood show I bought a package with a magnetic Tilt o-meter,
a Digital Protractor, a magnetic base Hight O-Meter (getting your table saw blade Height, Your joiner and Planer blades etc) um... a digital poker (the digital meter that measures the difference when you poke the end in sorry name is gone from my head) It comes with a device you can put into the tracks of your TC or use with a Magnetic base on your Jointer and look for runout in the orbiting areas like the Blade edge to edge on your TS... or the table height on your Jointer beds. I set up my TS blade and the Fence to +-2-3000'ths of an inch... Wonderful toys all for about 135 bucks.... Course after you set up your table how often are you going to reset it? I check it periodically and its not moved...

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless
