This christmas was great! I got some really nice new tools for the shop and they work great. So here they are:

Ryobi 13 inch thickness planer
Ryobi benchtop bandsaw
2 micron filter bag for my dust collector
Craftex dovetail/box joint jig

With these tools I can now take my woodworking to the next level and make even better projects.

Go to my workshop to see pictures.

Good for you young man. I have been interested in woodworking since I was a kid too. These new tools will really open up some opportunities.

Nice score on the planer! Get to Woodcraft and grab the 4” to 2-1/4” funnel shape reducer and you can really keep it clean!

When feeding stock, pick up lightly on the end away from the machine until the rollers have i, and likewise when it comes out, same thing but in reverse, pick it up as it comes off the rollers. This keeps almost completely eliminates snipe from that machine…

I don’t know much about those other items so I can say. I know the Ryobi band saw keeps tempting me for smaller work than my HF 14” incher…
