« Part 1: A stroke of luck Part 2 of Setting Up Shop series Part 3: Fantastic Freebies »

For several years, now, I’ve been hauling this stuff with me every time we moved. It spent the past 3 years in a storage locker – I just couldn’t bring myself to part with it (and now, boy am I glad!)

The other day, I got to wondering just what exactly I had in those boxes… so I brought them into the living room and spread them all out. When my wife got up, I was grinning from ear to ear like a kid at xmas.

Although the rails aren’t shown, I have a complete Incra TS system (original – not TS-III) with an Incra Ultra router system. (And soon I’ll have a table saw to mount them on!)
Also shown are several lengths of miter slot track (for various jigs I have planned), an Incra SawStop, a Woodpecker’s drill press table (the drill press will have to come later) and various other goodies.

It was a great way to start my day!

OK… is this considered a ‘hoard’ if you already had it but, forgot about it?
Hmmm… yep… I give you a ‘hoard’ credit… but, just ONE!
Sweet set of toys, there!

Nice toys Donnie. There will be a lot of “saw envy” when you get that Grizz!
