Go to amazon.com and look around. There are thousands of things that may interest you. You will not, however, find a decent plunge router or scroll saw to fit that budget. I put a Grripper ($60), Oshlun 6” dado stack ($75), Wixey angle gauge ($30), GluBot ($9) along with a few other things on my wish list.

A few months back, I bought the DeWalt compact router combo (DW611). I already have two Bosch 1617’s and a Triton 3 1/4hp router in a table.

With this new Dewalt combo, I have been using it a lot to cut dadoes, flush trim edges of projects, and now I am making signs using a template kit. The router is fairly small, light and easy to use.

Unfortunately, you can’t get the kit for under a $100. But if the $100 came as a gift card, and you had a few bucks saved up from mowing a few yards, then Whoopeee!

I think you would like it.

You didn’t mention clamps, Grizzly has clamps on sale. Hear that Jet puts their parallel clamps on sale in December.

Are you talking about clamps like these?
I bought several when Lowe’s had them on liquidation back in the summer. Otherwise, There wouldn’t be that many in the picture. :-)

My wife ask if I had everything I need for the shop. I said you never have everything. She told me I could order the sommerfeld easy bore jig. I am getting ready to build new kitchen cabinets, so it will come in handy. Next a to work on her for a dovetail jig.

I picked up a Delta Homecraft scroll saw at an auction a couple of weeks ago for $2.50. That’s two dollars and fifty cents. The aluminum retirement lamp is worth $60 or $70 on ebay. You can find good tools cheap.

For router bits I think the most often used are Straight bits set of 3 or 4 , Roundover bits set of 3 or 4 , Flush trim bits and Pattern bits set of 3 or 4 again. That covers most your bit usage.

Have your say...
