I’ve been away from woodworking for about 10 years. I am just now acquiring tools and machinery for my garage shop. I can’t believe how much things have changed in my absence. Delta and Powermatic are no longer MADE IN THE USA; I find that hugely disappointing. RBI Industries vanished and was resurrected not too long ago. Jointech is a memory. The list goes on and on.
I use to make a lot of large plywood cutouts for tole painters and always wanted to buy a Porter Cable 121 Portable Oscillating Spindle Sander. Low and behold, it is no longer available.
I always wanted a Delta Sanding Center with an extended table and decided I would buy one this go round. NOPE, it is no longer available!
My Incra Ultra is a thing of the past; my Powermatic spindle sander is a thing of the past . . . and so on.
Boy, what a difference a day makes!!
