Nice! I’ve got the same mortiser, and it’s great. I’d love to have that planer. Is that the 15”?

One tip with the mortiser, watch when you’re clamping narrower stock. I found with narrow stock the clamp would hold it a very slight angle. Then, when I assembled a frame it would be slightly out of flat. I found putting a spacer under the work piece so the screw on the vise hits it in the work piece in the middle takes care of the issue. Drove me crazy for a while before I realized what was happening. I kept thinking my tenons were at a angle.

Enjoy the new equipment!

Nice! Saving is ok, but I prefer the old,” Well gee honey, I would build you those tables but I just think to do it right I will need…...” and the wife will authorize funds!

Congrats on your your new toys…eh…tools!

Damn! I’ve been reading a bunch of posts about members adding new, mustard yellow, cast iron beauties to their shops recently. Feeling a bit jealous here! Congrats on the new hardware!

Now go make some dust!
