Location: Bradenton, Florida
Website: this one!

Wannabe Master craftsman, Sorting out my shop.

It consists of...
A nice assembly table I made.
A Sweet Granite top Steel City 5HP/240 Saw.
A 1.5 HP SC dust collector that needs to be plumbed into everything!
A 14" with a riser block (resaw now is about 13") Grizzly BS
A 12.5 Delta planer( For free.. was rusty as hell I rebuilt it and put in new blades)'
A PM 701 Mortiser
A Griz 8' Jointer with a sprial cutter
A junk Grolz #4 with a Hock blade (that is not bad, but not gossamer)
A LN Medium Shoulder plane
A LN LA Block plane
A LN 7 1/2 LA Jointer plane (help I am getting addicted!!!!)
(To donate a hand tool (like a LN/Veritas or Marcau plane or just a decent worker!) email me!
and some decent chisels, LN Dove tail saw and assorted junk.

At a recent local wood show I bought a package with a magnetic Tilt o-meter,
a Digital Protractor, a magnetic base Hight O-Meter (getting your table saw blade Height, Your joiner and Planer blades etc) um... a digital poker (the digital meter that measures the difference when you poke the end in sorry name is gone from my head) It comes with a device you can put into the tracks of your TC or use with a Magnetic base on your Jointer and look for runout in the orbiting areas like the Blade edge to edge on your TS... or the table height on your Jointer beds. I set up my TS blade and the Fence to +-2-3000'ths of an inch... Wonderful toys all for about 135 bucks.... Course after you set up your table how often are you going to reset it? I check it periodically and its not moved...
