Location: Charlotte, NC

I dispatched Yellow Freight System trucks for 24 years, 8 in Roanoke, Va. and 16 in Charlotte, NC, and managed merchandisers doing work in Lowe's in and around the Charlotte for 9 years and retired Sept 2007.
Built my shop in 1988. Bought Jet table saw,Grizzly band saw and drill press by 1990. Used shop as hobby most of time.
Trying to shape the shop up and want to build some shadow box picture frames and some small things like post office door banks. Hope to someday build some kitchen cabinets for our house. Norm Abram and Tommy Silva are my woodworking heroes.
Gave my life to Christ in 1993, teach Sunday School and sing (try to) in choir at Baptist church and also sing in a male chorus, The Singing Men of America centered in Charlotte, NC.
Married to my wife, Margie, for 48 years and enjoy helping others. Have one son living in Houston, TX, beautiful daughter-in-law and 3 wonderful grand kids.

Thanks to all of you who helped me in making a decision on a router for my shop. After much research I have decided to purchase the Milwaukee 5616-24 combo kit. I looked very hard at the Triton in my local Woodcraft store but decided on the Milwaukee for a couple of reasons: 1) The Triton fixed base is a FIXED base and they don’t have a combo package, 2) The Milwaukee people have an excellent reputation for solid and reliable long lasting motors no matter what the tool and they have their combo package which will give me 2 routers in one in my small shop. Another reason is that I can buy it at Home Depot who has a great return policy and I located a local service center in case I need it here locally. The Triton 2 1/4hp sells for $229 at Woodcraft and their 3 1/4 hp sells for $269 at Woodcraft and the Milwaukee combo 2 1/4 hp sells for $249 at Depot if anyone else is shopping also. Hope I made the right decision.

Have your say...
