Yea . . . something new followed me home the other day:

And it had this big box of stuff with it . . .

And inside the box . . .

It was like Christmas time . . . digging into the presents:

And as an added bonus . . . the jointer:

I’d say I did pretty good. My dad looked at some of the stuff and I have several hundred dollars worth of stuff just in blades/arbors. Some of the things were brand new (like a tendon jig) and many were unopened. The box of goodies was worth what I paid for the whole setup.

give it a kiss every day and pet it when you walk by. It will be good to you.

Have fun with your new toys. Looks as if you now have two Shopsmiths. I’ve been shopsmithing since ‘83. Keep us posted as you get things cleaned up and organized.

Quite a load for one stop, i found a guy with a whole storeage shed full of SS items from years ago and he want to get rid of all of it. Working on a deal but probably won’t be that good. Great find.

You added a shopsmith to your clutter? That is a strange sort of progress I cant understand, but for some reason i cant deny either. To be honest, this summer my garage was almost as bad, but ive seen junk yards that were more organized. Oh well, the harder the job, the better the rewards.

Have your say...
