Thank you so much for all of the kind words. You guys are very welcoming. I am a real newbie to this stuff but I am diving in head first. Already getting a pretty fair collection of tools. My only hindrance is space. Seems that is a problem most have. I am about halfway through my first storage project, a pegboard cabinet. I got the plans in a small shop magazine. It is amazing how much you learn by doing. I figured out today that the stack of dado blades that supposedly was supposed to equal 23/32 was actually about a 32nd too narrow. I will measure them next time.

By the way, what is runout? I guess I should google it but I bet one of you guys could explain it a lot better.

It is good to be here.

I think the simple answer is how much a rotating piece wobbles off center. There are numerous potential causes, but it would affect the accuracy and potentially the cut quality that you can obtain. Hope this helps.

Most woodworkers suffer from poor runout. They become imbalanced and take a simple hobby and make it an obsession:-)
Welcome Sharon, glad to have you here and I look forward to seeing your first post.

p.s. What a handsom lad you have there, a future woodworker by the look of him :-)
