Some time ago I bought a dial indicator and a magnetic tower to hold it. This was among other things for a major table saw tune up. Loved the dial indicator and hated the tower.

I am jumping into my woodworking career with both feet. Unfortunately, this is not cheap and I do not have any tools worth anything. Also, having a handicap, I am on a very limited income. So, what is a woodworker to do? Start small, build up tools one at a time, accumulate better tools as you go. This is the plan, however, I need to start somewhere and my income only pays the bills that I have. I have found a possible source for start up expenses. I just signed up for a Crowd Funding webs...
