I decided to share with you some of my tools I was able to acquire in the last week. Being unemployed for over a year now leaves the budget with very little money to buy tools or stock to work with. I have started to sell some of the pieces now so I justified it in my mind. These don’t allow me to do anything that I could’nt do before, only now I can do it easier and a whole lot faster. The Delta TP305 planer was a CL find. After looking for three months plus I found this one about sixty miles away for $100.00 and it works great. Even the blades are still sharp. The Delta TP160 jointer was on sale so I got it a couple of days later. The Carter bandsaw stabilizer was just something I really wanted and it is a great invention. Works like a dream and the set up is so simple. I have a newer Craftsman 12” bandsaw and this is the best thing I ever did to it. Fellow LB’s I just wanted to share this and thanks for looking.

Got the jointer works great, good luck in selling your stuf. Wish I could run across something in CL. Never have that kind of luck. I may need to look into the blade stabilizer, I have a Delta 12”, and it needs something!!!!!! Again Congragts and good luck
