wow…those are great donations—-looks like you will need to put in a little “elbow grease” removing the rust…but these could be the beginning to a great shop…be careful to make sure that all the tools run safely…I am not an expert in that category at all…but I want you to be safe!!!

cant wait to see some results with these tools!!! good luck!!!

Wow CJ, that is awesome!! Tell us how this came about!! Man a Delta Unisaw, thats awesome!!! And a dovetail jig!! I hope you got a manual for the jig!! I’m still in the market for a drill press. I like the new Delta cause it has a large table, but I get a discount on Jet, so there lies the dilemma!! I got a planer just like that!! Good score CJ, I see furniture in your future!!

That is great. It’s good to see that someone who has been so supportive of others on this site has gotten some great support of his own. Good luck!

looks like you already got most of the rust off. What did you use?
