Location: Locust Grove, VA.

I live in Locust Grove VA. I retired in 2001 and have not looked back. I love everything about wood working and try to learn all I can about it. I really enjoy talking to and learning from other wood workers and the things they have discovered through wood working. I have had the opportunity to meet and talk to some of the people who are considered the best in their area of the craft, some well know and some that not but are true craftsmen. I have met some of the people here on Lumber Jocks as well as other forums which was a real treat for me I also love a good day of fishing when I can get it. I do a bit of traveling.

I think you’re on the right track. THe big Griz takes up too much room, the DW735 will do a fine job, and if things go your way, free up some cash. The sander, as you said, will handle thicknessing that the 735 can’t, but that’s it’s job. An extreme makover wouldn’t hurt. One thing leads to another and SHAZAM! you have a new shop with recessed lighting, zoned heat and cool, soft, flooring underfoot, and the walls color co-ordinated with your chisel handles. Hey, it could happen. Anyway, I think you have the right idea. When we see something as being in the way, or find we need to justify something, it’s time for it to go. Get the most you can for it, and put the money to work.
