Well here is where it all began!! I had 3 guitars at that time. My 2001 Gibson Les Paul Standard, my 2003 Jackson SL1, and my Fender Strat. I wanted to start woodworking, but I was in a financial deficit part of my life. I couldn’t sell my Jackson, plays too well. And the thought of ever being without my Gibson Les Paul Standard has never crossed my mind. That left the Fender. I loved it, and it played exceptionally well…..like butter. The problem with it is that it wouldn’t stay in tune. It had a tremelo, and everytime you would use it, the guitar would go out of tune. Didn’t have that problem with my Jackson. That is one solid instrument. So off I went to Guitar Center with my Strat in hand. I had found my Delta Contractor saw on Amazon for $400.00. When they offered my $650.00, I took it!
The first pic is of my Delta tablesaw/Rockler router table extension, and a Rockler/JessEm Router Lift FX. The only thing else I’ve done to my tablesaw is to add cast iron table wings, for a completely flat, stable table top. Next pic is my pair of 14” bandsaws. Next is my Delta 13” planer. Next is my awesome 8” Grizzly Jointer with carbide inserted spiral cutterhead. In the background is my awesome Leigh D4R jig. Next is my Jet oscillating spindle sander, and finally my new Jet 16-32 drum sander.
