I am in process of reorganizing my basement shop. I guess this is a good time to take a pic or two even if there is a pile of clutter on my work bench. Right now my accumulated tools are fairly entry level. Hey its what I CAN AFFORD. I find I can be pretty resourceful when looking for tools. My tools are Ridgid table saw ts 3650 I found it on CL $150 pretty good rust on top but hardly used. I am in process cleaning it up. Craftsman 10” band saw. Hey despite its limitations it is a pretty good machine. It is probably the one piece I want to upgrade eventually. Simply because its height limitation. I cant cut some of these bandsaw boxes, that I see here. The little jointer is a 50’s vintage 4”. I bought it for 20 bucks. The previous owner set it up on a board for portability. It needs to be entirely reconfigured. But for now it works and blades are in good shape. Dremel scroll saw. From CL again. Actually bought from a young girl who lives 15 or so houses away. She was scared of it and was never used $60. I love it. The side mounted sanding disk comes in handy. Finally my little Skil drill press. Hey it makes good holes where I want them. I would love a planer and a dust collection system. The tool I dont like is my task force miter saw. I got it from lowes new for $60. For a while I tinkered with and I wondered why it never cut perfectly. I eventually figured out that the fence is actually bent and lumber can’t be set flat against it. It is pretty much relegated to cutting 2×4’s. Its all crammed in my tiny basement with my laundry and hunting and fishing stuff.
