With the addition of my Grizzly G0458 18” Open End Drum Sander….
My MAJOR tool/machine purchases are pretty much complete. Although a CNC Router would be nice!!!
That means I am actually building projects and not just “shop projects”!!!
However, that does not mean purchases are a thing of the past….
One must leave themselves open to future upgrades, shop fixture procurement, lumber and the incidentals.
I am also on the look out for redundant/duplicate tools, to permit multiple setups “at the ready”.
So…. I continue to scour CL, hunting for gloat worthy purchases and minor acquisitions.
I found a few….
I have 3 bench vises…. sitting on a shelf…. because I don’t have a work bench.
The “Stumpy Nubs Workbench” is on my build list…. and it will be staying there a tad longer….
This is not a Roubo, or even a good bench…. Albeit, it is better than nothing.
That and I could not have built even a crappy one for what I paid for this….
At HF, new, these go for about $150 – $200….
A half hour drive and 5 – five dollar bills was my outlay. Yup, $25.00!!!
The bench may not be worth bragging about, but the price is gloat worthy (at least to me!).
After picking up the bench, I drove another half hour, to a “self storage” facility….
Met a guy relieving himself (no not that way) of “stuff”. I would have liked to have snagged up the horizontal metal cutting band saw, but I was after wood chip & saw dust generators!!! The guy also had a portable generator…. fired it up and it functioned properly…. although it was not for sale….
He broke it out so that I could test this…
Now then, I already have a PC Plunge Router, a PC Trim Router and a Millers Falls Router….
Like clamps, ya can never have enough routers…. I believe that A1Jim would agree!!!
I checked Amazon, and new these go for around $200….
The guy only asked me to fork over 10 – five dollar bills. Yup, $50.00!!!
Those are the latest additions to “The Lair”. I am hoping that they will see a lot of use.
Well, that’s the plan at least!!!
