So I’ve seen numerous post like this one and thought,... well lets just say I thought what for. But I bought all this cool stuff and had to share with people that understand. Anyway I had a pile of overtime at work in June and I have always bought myself something with the extra time I have to put in. Well I made a few purchases. First was my Grizzly 513P bandsaw. Was going with a 0555 but someone said that these polar series were to good of deal so I went with it. I have it all set up now other then waiting for my timberwolf blades. This is a very smooth running piece of equipment and I am sure that it will get even better with the new blades. My second purchase was the oshlun dado set. I was going to get a freud set from the box store but seen a lumberjock review on this one along with pics and was sold. A very resonable price for it as well. Now comes my granddaddy purchase and one I hummed and hawed about due to the price. I bought the Incra TS-LS system along with the router table and jointery package and whiteside bits. I have been drooling over one of these for quite awhile and went for it. I haven’t had a chance to set it up yet and probably won’t for a month unless we come into some crappy weather. But when I walk past the open boxes I just grin. It’s going to be a fun winter in my shop!!!!!!! Thanks for reading my gloat.

I often think about the Incra system but I have not made the plunge yet.

Be sure to take pictures while they are new! Inquiring minds want to see them shine!
