Well….. I finally finished putting my table saw together, this afternoon. I think I will be happy with this Rigid R4511, it seems to be built pretty well (Who could complain, i got in on clearance for $300 bucks).

I picked up this Dewalt 13.5" planer for under half the price of a new one, with new blades. The compressor is not the greatest, but it is like new, and will work great for my nail guns and stain spraying. I also picked up this Porter Cable D-handle router, for less than half price, and its barely used ( I love these D-handles).

I still need to get a 3.25-3.5 hp router for a table I want to build, several clamps of all types, a good vertical belt sander, and an 8" jointer. I have many other small tools that made it through the divorce many years ago.

I am almost ready to start building my tables and organizing my garage layout (wish me luck). Cant wait to smell the wood and glue again! Did I mention that I LOVE Craigslist?
