I come from a family line of woodworkers but only got serious recently. By serious I mean working with hardwood. My dad has a great shop downstairs but the old Craftsman table saw has a bent shaft, the old Craftsman jointer is not accurate, neither is the old Craftsman radial arm saw.... So after being laid off cause of covid I had time to fix it up. And because of Congress I had a bunch of economy-stimulus money. So I definitely did some economy-stimulating! First the table saw–SawStop contractor with 36" extension. I know, I know, brag, brag, brag. But it is absolutely worth the loan or house payment needed to buy it. Then a Powermatic 6" joiner 54a. It was only $100 more than the Jet and about a foot longer. The feed tables were Not set at the factory or the blades so I spent three days fixing it. The fence also doesn't stay 90 deg. I have to check it every time. Other than that it's sturdy and powerful. Then I needed accurate measurements so got Woodpeckers. A bunch of other tools later I'm doing shadow boxes with box joints with Incra's I-Box (I'll add my review soon) and chess sets. So enough about me. Thanks for reading.

-- Woodworking is in my blood and my blood is on some woodwork.
