So, I got some money back from Uncle Sam and my wife says to get some tools!!!

I tell my wife that she best not be messing with me about tools, because that is ONE thing that should NOT be messed with. She tells me to get what I want, just be sure that I can use it. Well as you know, we can all use everything we buy!

So, for once in my marriage (16 years now) I got to pick some tools and for once, I could NOT think of an actual TOOL that I needed, so I went for ACCESSORIES!!!! O.K. guys, here is my dream wish come true list:

I have an OLD Rockwell table saw. Not much to look at, older than dirt, but I put a 3 HP motor on it a couple years ago and it runs like a dream. The trunnions are tight and smooth acting and this thing is heavy as a tank, but the fence system was showing age and I was thinking about getting a new saw, buttttttt…. how about a new fence. 1st on my list:

Incra LS52-TS-WF Super System !!!!—>

Now, one thing that I already owned was an old sears metal router table, you know, the old ones that are about a foot high with screw holes to mount your router. Well, again, that is showing age and since I now have this great fence on it’s way I figured it was about time to get a router, router lift, and extension table to put on the Incra fence. Now, I want a way to really use this router so let’s shell out a few more bucks and get the:

MLCS Powerlift with extension table!! —>

Oh yeah, I also got a neck extension for my Grizzly band saw so I can re-saw up to 12”. So that is cool also.

After ordering everything, I found out that the Powerlift in on backorder and will not be shipped until the 28th. Oh the AGONY!!!

Stay tuned guys and I’ll give you first hand reviews on all these neat accessories if my wife doesn’t break ALL my fingers!!!

I have also. I figure it will bring new life to my old table saw. I’ll let you know how it installs on something that old.

Have your say...
