I have the following woodworking tools.
1) Homemade table saw (made by my wife’s grandfather)
2) Drill press (also made by my wife’s grandfather)
3) Lathe
4) Router
5) Homemade disk sander (which I made)
6) belt sander
7) small hobby type band saw
8) Orbital sander, electric drills
9) non functioning jointer / thicknesser combination (Exchanged it from a friend for a radial arm saw) Unfortunately this needs a lot of work which was not possible due to quite a busy work schedule.
10) various hand tools (Handplanes, clamps etc)

I will post some pictures later on.

Howzit! I read your profile after seeing your handcut dovetails. I was stoked to see that you are using your wifes Grandfathers tools! I did EXACTLY the same thing. I have his saw, drill press, etc. Very cool. I have friends in Kommetjie. I had a close friend from Florida who went down there to start a Calvary Chapel. He drowned surfing at Plat boom in 2001. There is a memorial at the reserve in his name!

Hi danoq, sorry to hear about your friend. Kommetjie is one of the nice places in the Western Cape.

I also have quite a bit of handtools from my father and most of my handplanes from my father inlaw.
