since my shop is at ambient temperature currently… and that is about 20° on a ‘good’ day of late. I’ve been getting my ‘fix’ of woodworking by watching youtube woodworking videos online. This is a double edged sword sort of thing. I get my ‘fix’... it is ‘free’, and I’ve even learned a few things…
however. It also has me wishing for a slew of new tools, not the least of which in turn has led to my wishing for (in no particular order):
Rigid oscillating spindle/belt sander
Performax sander (or similar)
At least 4 new gouges, scrapers and other implements of destruction for my lathe.
oh yeah, a new Lathe! (changing belts sucks… I want variable speed!)
either a mid sized router (PC/Dewalt clones… or similar) or a better trim router (I have a cordless Ryobi, but…)
an external vent propane heater… through wall type to supplement my solar heat system
oh yeah part II… finish my solar wall on the south wall of the shop this year…
a new Drill/driver. Thinking Rigid or Porter Cable. OR a newer ryobi 18v kit. I have a bunch of ryobi one+ tools, would make sense to keep with the same system, just newer/better batteries (I hope).
