« Part 5: YouTube: How did I learn without it? Part 6 of Hermit House Woodworking - Starting from Scratch series Part 7: Decided on a structure for my temporary shop - A Geodesic Tunnel! »

Well I did it. I placed the order. I’ve been waiting for this for quite a while and now it is done. I got:

Bosch GCA 12 GDL

Bosch GTA 2500 W

Bosch GAS 20 L SFC Shop Vac

Bosch GMF 1600 CE

Bosch GKT 55 GCE

Bosch FSN Guiderail System (5.2m total)

They should all be here next week, and cost less than a single stationary machine I have been coveting, so I feel like I’ve got some value for my money. Soon as they get here, I can truly start to work!

A well coordinated ensemble. You will have your construction projects done in no time. Looking forward to reviews when you finally put them to work.

I was thinking I’ll have to be sure the shop is done in accenting colours. The Mrs loves that shade of green too.

Yeah, yeah. They’ve turned me down twice already. Not enough cobwebs, they said. Spiders too friendly, they said. >_>

Aaaaand the Germans dropped the ball. The delivery went missing in transit and it will be at least another week until the replacements arrive.
