Starting a hobby #1: Table saw

Well, I haven’t built anything yet, but I did buy a table saw I found on Craigslist. Just figured I’d show everyone.

Aug 21, 2008 Well, it’s almost done but now that I’ve seen the pictures I can see there are a lot of things to do yet and a lot of things that will just have to stay as “oops”. But, the inside is cute so hopefully that will make up for the not-so-cute oopses. Front View. (Yes, the door is crooked.. I thought I had it fixed but .. no..

Craftsman Open Panel Shelf #1: Money is tight - Anniversary Present for the Wife

Just getting Started #2: Dust collector

08-21-2008 06:52 PM by RonM | 2 comments »

After doing research on good and cheap dust collectors I decided to purchase a Harbor Freight 2HP model. Alot of people think that it is a good value.

Well after working with my uncle on a couple of projects I thought it was time to start getting my own equipment for my shop.(mother-in-laws 24’ by 36’ steel building) I went to looking on craigslist and eBay to see was was available used and at a good price.
