70 y/o, still working about 2/3 time. Have dabbled in woodworking for many years, mostly to accomplish utilitarian projects for home, and occasionaly work. With a little more time, due to paring back some other hobbies severely, I am now pursuing woodworking with the idea of it being a major hobby.
I am not too ambitious, and plan to use some older power tools and some new smaller inexpensive tools. I have a Craftsman radial arm saw 1971 vintage, in good condition. I am finishing a new table for it and tuning it up. Almost exclusively used for 90 degree crosscut now. Also in the old category, a 1990 Delta contractor's saw. I put a new fence on it recently. I have a fair sampling of other power tools, most installed and in use for years, others still in the box.
The rest will develop over the years as I revamp my shop and expand my tool collection and capabilities. No rush, just plan to enjoy the hobby.
