I Know I must coming done with something because today I decided I have to many tools . I ‘m working on a cabinet job and every time I turned around something was in the way so….I said to my self,Self you need to get rid of some of these things that you don’t use that much. So I placed and ad in my local Craig’s list.
I know it must be a temporary condition. If anyone’s close enough here’s my ad.

I know what you mean!! Trying to run a personal life and electrical contracting out of a 2 car garage (shop for woodworking) feels the same way ;-((

Jim,
What you going to do with all that extra money, buy more tools?
Wish I lived closer.

Jim I will soon have a used one horse dust collector available, it’s old and has wear but I am still using it while I try and find the time to install the one I brought over from my old shop.

I am in need of a used 12”-14” (or larger band saw), running or not and some type of router table or router fence setup I can install myself on a shop built router table. Let me know please if you have any of those items available or might be interested in the Dust Collector unit in trade for something.

I would love to have a few of those tools, especially the drum sander. Bummer theres no room or money. Good luck on the sales Jim. Hope all is well.

That’s funny Jim;

I have come to that same conclusion many times. It’s crazy, a small renovating project requires so many specialty tools, there’s no room left to do the work.

Still, I’m afraid to sell anything. What if I need it? LOL

Jim, That is the first I heard anyone say that, “Too Many Tools”. I don’t know about anyone else, but I never have enough tools. Wished I lived closer.

Have a good one….
