I seem to be very fortunate in getting woodworking tools, they may be old to other people, but they are great to me. A friend of my DAD’s recently got a new table saw, he gave me his old 10” Craftsman, it is old and so much bigger and better that my 10” Tradesman from Lowes. I love it! It has already helped me to realize that the right tools make a big difference in your skill level. I then traded my junky table saw and a few other cheap hand tools that I have not used for years, and are too “cheap” to give away, for a small Craftsman drill press and a Porter Cable finish nailer at a pawn shop. I feel that I have been blessed with good fortune for my hobby. I do plan to give my table saw away if I ever upgrade. I hope that we all realize that there is someone appreciative of old quality tools. Thanks to all of you lumberjocks for helping the younger generation start out with these old tools.

So… Where’s the pics of the TS, DP and nailer? Especially if they are old iron, we love seeing that stuff…

Hello everyone and I am truly sorry to have not posted for 97 days, busy with other stuff and forgot to get going on lumber jocks. Congrats to RJS on the fine old saw. I am currently building a woodworking bench so I finally have something to take pictures of and post very soon, Lord willing. Love U good people and am glad that everyone forgives me for joining 97 days ago or so then promptly forgot to look learn and be involved!
