Location: Balch Springs Tx

62 years old, retired with 100% disability but love woodworking ... among other things. Not much money but LOTS of enthusiasm and perhaps too much perseverance at times. Small shop packed with most tools you could want. Still need good jointer and thickness planer but those are coming soon. (I hope)

Got a Central Machinery (Harbor Freight) 10 inch contractor table saw that I upgraded, using my metal working skills by adding extension tables, a homemade fence system and other goodies, all on a large movable platform with 10 inch inflatable tires that allows it to be moved around when necessary.

Thanks Bureaucrat. My doctor recently said to me: “Congratulations! You made the cut!” I asked “What cut?” and he said that for 50% of all people, the first sign of hidden heart disease is sudden death. My heart attack was totally unexpected but who am I to complain? I’m still here!
