After over 35 years of working on cars and trucks, I decided to get in to woodworking…something I have wanted to do for many years. I started buying up tools about 5 years ago, just before I finished my 14 year frame off restoration on my ‘71 Chevy truck. Sold many of my automotive tools and I have carefully been buying up wood related tools & equipment from Ebay, Craigslist, Woodcraft and Lowes & HD. My first project was my grandson’s cradle, and just recently I completed my workbench. Pics of the shop to come later.
Here’s a list of my equipment so far:

Air Technology air purifier
Delta 50-760 dust collector
Dewalt DW735 planer
Craftsman floor model drill press
Craftsman 20” scroll saw (free)
Ridgid oscillating spindle sander
Delta 6” / 9” belt/disc sander
Bosch router table
Bosch Combo router kit
Porter Cable combo router kit
Leigh D4 dovetail jig
Grizzly 6” joiner
Delta 14” industrial band saw with riser block
& Kreg fence
Jet 12-36 lathe
Worksharp WS3000 system
Robert Sorby woodturning tools
Dewalt biscuit joiner
6 HP Campbell/Hausfeld 60 gal. compressor
Ridgid TS3650 table saw with Woodworker II and
Incra 1000se miter gauge
Woodcraft tenoning jig
WoodRiver forstner bits set
Dewalt 18 Volt drills
Several hand planes

Bob, I am also looking forward to taking a tour of your shop when you get the chance to post some pictures. From your description it does sound interesting.

That’s a nice collection of tools. I hope that you’ll start participating more on LJs.
