Welcome to LJ’s and to the not so exclusive club of woodworkers. Livin the dream that most of us have had; to spend 5 large on tools at one time. Like Hal stated, I too accumulated all of my stuff a little at a time over many years. I am glad that you were able to buy all of the ursus arctos horribilis tools. I have a Griz cabinet saw and stationary oscillating spindle sander with a new 8” joiner on the way. I have some Jet, Powermatic, Delta and Dewalt stationary tools too, and the Griz stuff matches the others in the fit, finish and functionality all the way. You will not be disappointed with your new products. Now build something! But first, let me caution you in the safety department. Read all of the safety manuals, articles, reviews and any other stuff you can lay your paws on before you plug in anything. These bears will bite, very quickly and very hard. Set them up right and get some safety gear and start slowly. Woodworking has taught patience to this Type A personality geezer over the years. When using your new equipment remember this motto: If what are you are doing seems to maybe be dangerous, then it probably is…STOP. Good luck with what will become your new addiction.
