no previous part Part 1 of shop re start the new RMR series Part 2: a little progress »

last summer i ran across a Rockwell cabinet saw at a yard sale and took it home for only 100.00 it needed a fence but those are always available. the job i had kept me pretty busy but i am a habitat for humanity junkie and drop in there regularly. the last 2 months i have added a craftsman contractors saw with exact-i-rip fence, a craftsman 6 1/2” joiner, craftsman 10” bench top band saw, a no name bench top shabby but usable for now drill press and Tuesday i’ll pick up pre. 1939 walker turner brand Driver 12” band saw, Floor model. I have my router table that i built some 8 years ago, ( the only large item from the old shop), craftsman 12 ” miter saw and a handful of basic hand and power tools. and like us all not enough space.

When I lived out EAST Habitat -restore was my favorite as well. If you got in there Thursdays you could find some great tools and items. Our truck went Wednesday to pickup.
Unfortunately when I moved back WEST 1800 mi. I had to leave a LOT of it behind !
