I have been woodwoorking off and on for the past few years and am slowly trying to build my skills to the competent level but I have fun and it keeps me out of the wifes hair. I have a very supportive family who put up with my constant interuptions to "See what I did" like any other man/child.
I have a Shopsmith MK V model 510 with the 4" jointer, bandsaw, and belt sander. I also have a 1972 Craftsman 10" Radial Arm saw, a home built router table (Work in progress). I am still setting up my shop but with a shop only 9' by 15' there are definate challenges.
New additions to the shop - Porter Cable 895 PK 2 1/4 hp combo plunge/fixed, Porter Cable 4212 Deluxe dovetail jig, Jet JBM-5 hollow chisel mortiser, Ryobi plate jointer and some new clamps to add to my puny stockpile. Unfortunetly before the dovetail jig could arrive and before I could use any of the others much I had to under go shoulder surgery on my right shoulder - going to take me out of the shop for a few weeks. Oh Well they'll be there when I get back.
